Super Freak: Check Out This Mopar-Powered Buick Regal – Hey, It Isn’t LS Powered!

Admittedly, a G-body Buick Regal isn’t the first version you would expect to see on the track. A Grand National, maybe. Only the Pontiac Grand Prix is seen less, it seems, but why that is, we just don’t know. A G-body is a G-body…GM badge-engineering at it’s finest, in a form that wasn’t a front-drive crapbox. The same suspension tricks and engine swaps work across the board. So if you want to jam a turbocharged and intercooled 3.8L V6 into a Monte Carlo SS, go for it…nothing is going to give you any real headache. Want a small-block Chevy? Go for it. Olds engine? Yep, the G-body came with 307s, so no sweat there, either. Big-block? Oh, come on…and yes, LS swaps are shoved into these things by the dozen, much to the chagrin of the anti-LS movement.

Well, be settled, this isn’t an LS-powered Regal. No, this is one of the most off-the-wall engine swaps I’ve heard about in recent memory. We only know for sure what the video puts out there: which is that a Mopar 408ci stroker small-block is residing where we bet a standard 3.8L six once sat. That’s right, you are looking at a Chrysler-powered Regal that didn’t come from Australia. And that, according to the poster, that the car “is coming back”. Do you know who owns this monster? We want more info!!

    Thought the same thing Gary. That would be like mid-13’s in the 1/4. Think it’s time to have the Chrondeks re-calibrated at Podunk Dragway. Car is obviously much faster.
