  1. Vent Shade 19260737

    I know. I have seen that on a lot of sites. How many times have you gotten something that say will fit or "bolt on" and you need to modify them. I was hoping to get feedback from someone that has them to let me know how they fit. Thanks for answering this post.

  4. Should I wrap the cold side of my ntercooler?

    I am thinking about wrapping the cold side of my intercooler. Wondering if anyone has done this and done it to the stock charge pipe. Let me know what I should use. I have seen some videos and people have used the gold tape and I don't like the the look. Thanks for your feedback.
  5. Whats the best charge pipe heat wrap?

    Hi All, I have been looking and I see that there are some out there wrapping the charge pipe from the turbo to the cooler and from there to the intake. I plan on doing this on my GS and posting videos on my YouTube channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/HyperXprojects [check out some of my...
  6. Catch Can Install?

    Hi Everyone! Happy New Year and I hope that your Holiday's were wonderful! Quick question... Oil catch can on the 2012 GS - LHU engine. Should I or shouldn't I? What are the MAJOR Pros and Cons for such an install? I have been seeing a lot of buzz about this. If it is a must do, what brand...
  7. Rattle / knocking noise in normal mode - No noise in GS mode!

    Ok, first let me say sorry for asking the same question again if this has been asked. I tried the search and I get a ton of results to sift through and the answers have been inconclusive. A few weeks ago I went in to the dealer to have the intermediate flex pipe replace (it had cracked at the...
  8. Is Your Flex Cracked?

    A few weeks ago I started to notice that the exhaust was getting a bit noisy from under the car and I could smell exhaust from time to time. I took the car in to the dealer and found out that I was not crazy - there was a leak and I was thinking that an exhaust gasket was blown but I was told...
  9. Unnecessary Weight

    Since I am one of the lucky few that has the "fix a flat" option and not a full spare in the boot - what other things can I remove to shed some weight? I have removed the plastic engine cover and the hood padding. Any other things that can be pulled? I know when I had my GTP the 3800 still had...
  10. 2012 Regal GS turbo manufacturer(s)

    Hello All! I have tried to search and I get way too many hits to find the simple answer and that is: Who is the manufacturer(s) of the stock turbo in the 2012 version of the GS with the LHU engine? :confused: Thanks All!
  11. GS Tire(s) Need to go!

    Hello All! Last month I went in to the dealer for service and inspection and my current tires Hankook Ventus V4ES passed inspection and one of them had a nail. When the dealer went to repair it the destroyed the tire and replaced it with a NEW Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2. Now I have a "one off"...
  12. Slippery Peddles!

    ok, I had some time over the weekend to try a project with one of the pedals. Some time, a wire brush and bed liner spray. Here is what I got. I only did the clutch pedal but plan on doing all them. Wear gloves unless you like the rubber smell on your hands days after. I learned the hard way...
  13. How much power can a stock regal hold

    I'm still almost pure stock. I have a K&N and that's it so far. I am coming up on my 1yr anniversary with the car and I have been following and reading some threads on here. I have seen the post on getting more power but how are you all stopping it? I did an upgrade to my front rotors [slotted...
  14. 2012 FWD to AWD Conversion?

    Question and forgive me if it has been asked. Since the 2012 GS had an AWD option and "you" were only able to get a FWD (used), how hard would it be to upgrade to or convert to AWD?
  15. What's your Premium fuel of choice - 91 or 93?

    Ok - GS and Turbo owners - what is your choice of Premium fuel and why? I have been feeding my GS a good diet of Sunoco 91 octane. When I had my GTP I feed it 93 (at the time 93 was Premium now it's Ultra) anyway, what is your fuel of choice (91, 93 or higher) and Pro's and Con's? On a side...
