Hi there - if you already have the supercharged 3.8L GS engine, there is a not whole lot that can practically be done. A true "cold-air" kit that gets you intake air from outside the engine compartment, with a low-resistance air filter will help a bit. A shift kit that firms up shifts (B&M, TCI, et al) might be a consideration - just remember the axles and CV joints can pay the price for this. Torque-steer, given that you’re front-wheel drive, will be a limitation. Firmer engine mounts can help that a bit, but it still physics you’re fighting. Just a few ideas - check the Buick Regal forums on the Internet for other suggestions from fellow owners. Good luck!
