2011 Regal CSX 2.0T (current) 89 Turbo Trans Am, sub 12's(Sold)
Hello all- I recently picked up an 11 csx and am perusing the available performance mods and routes to accomplish them! I'm new to this generation- I did however have an 89 Turbo Trans Am (grand national engine) that I modified fairly extensively and ran right at 12 +/- in the 1/4, though I never got it dialed in perfectly. But back then, all I had to do was adjust the wastegate to add as much boost as I could run w/out detonation! Haha- now it's a different story so I'm ready to put in the research and make some power! Any suggestions and/or help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not seeing many actual "mods" as far as intercoolers, down pipes, etc-- or maybe I'm looking in the wrong places. lol. Thanks for the help guys!

Congrats man! I knew a guy like you way back when...he had a bad Turbo T/A when he was pretty young...but his older brother was stuck with a crappy S-10 pickup that had flaking paint and a bench seat. Not exactly great for reeling in the ladies. But oh well, the past is the past. Seriously though, I hope you enjoy your new Regal.

Wierz that is the honey-pot of horsepower I was lookin' for! :headbang:
I definitely want to start with the performance action first- so thank you for all of the leads which will be quite helpful- as I begin to "massage" this mill and see what it's capable of! That is quite a list of goodies and I'm pretty sure I know where I'm going to start- ;)

Thanks for the welcome man!

Hey CMG! Oh yea?! What are the odds? They only made 1550 so they were pretty few and far-between! ;) but he must have been a pretty badass dude that hustled those that didn't realize the TTA was Not just a GTA with a 305... Haha. Thanks for the welcome, my friend- and Ill see you around :)

Haha, everyone asks about mods when they first join, I figured I'd make a centralized location in their opening post for them to reference for later use :thumpsup: We've got a few member who have taken the mods pretty far (larger turbo, forged engine swap) that are putting down some serious power, and others who are taking it easy and waiting until their warranty expires. Don't forget to post some pics up!
