First of all, I'm a newbie to turbo buicks. I've always loved them, but haven't owned one yet. I have a lead on a cream white 85 T-type with tan interior. I like the sleeper look of it but have some questions before I decide to buy a non-intercooled turbo Regal.
What did they run when they were stock?
I've seen 86-87's run 12's easily. How hard is it to get the 84-85's in the 12's?
Your opinions would be greatly appreciated

An 85 would probably cost 1000-1500 dollars more to get in the 12's than an 86/87. They had slightly smaller turbos, less efficient plumbing and of course no IC.

Most hotairs ran high 14's/very low 15's stock.

Most people convert the ignition and ECM over to the slightly better and less expensive to replace 86/87 styles also
