Raced one today on the fly. I was doing about 30km/h in 2nd and I started to gun it. He had a passenger and himself and I had no one in the car. He couldn't catch me at all. Actually I started pulling on him bit by bit. 240hp ??? Probably 200 at the wheels and he didn't stand a chance.

Wierd and I knew he was punching it cause he was being a prick and cut me plus several others off. Put him in his spot

260hp. and 280lb-ft. :eek:

The 4-speed still saps LOTS of power, and the weight is in E60 territory, though. 0-60 is 6.8 for the old model, and I think 6.6 for the new.

hmm where did you get that stats?

http://www.gmcanada.com/english/vehicles/pontiac/grandprix/grnp_details.html

The new GTP is from gmcanada's website

3.8L "3800" Supercharged V6 (L67)
240 hp @ 5200 rpm
280 lb.-ft. @ 3600 rpm
1610 kg. (3555 lb.) GTP Sedan

even the canadian limited edition has 240HP... maybe you found a stats of a modified GTP

I have the same bad luck, but tonight for some reason i had a BUNCHA punks in jap cars try to race me!
:( quite sad sometimes really this one red integra lines it up with me and just diecides to rip it cause i guess i accelerated a bit too fast for his liking so he MISSES 2nd, and throws it into second and just HOLDSSSS it in second i hear the revs BEGGIN for a shift change, man his car took a BEATING and still got smoked obviously!

Buddy I don't know what crack you have been smoking but a stock GTP runs low to flat 15 buddy. Check the stats on one then come shoot you mouth off. I know what he was doing and how hard he was pushing it. I was there you where not.

i never heard of a grandprix GTpoo doing high 13`s stock, thats not enough power and too much weight, they are awsome off the line with that ultra long and power first gear but after that they lose their balls. I say it`s 14`s at best.

Yeah that great but I will put down all the moneyin the world and I know for a fact that it is not stock. Stock GTP's will run low 15's period

A supercharged GTP smoked me silly when I tried to race one recently. This was in my auto-e36 though.
I got freaked out when I hear the supercharger whining after we had launched. I had no idea it was blown when he first approached me, what a shock.
I think if I had raced it in my 5psd with very sticky tires I could have had a chance.

Contra if you could hear the blower then it isn't stock. I had a bonneville ssei and they have identical motor except the GTP has more sprot option and a performance computer as oppose to the tame ssei. I had an intake out of aluminum and let me tell you it sounded fierce. If you can hear the blower being really loud then it is not bone stock but none the less they are quick cars just not as quick as people make them out to be in bone stock trim.

Yeah there are as well. The 2004 ones are a bit quicker. 0-60 in 6.6 and the quarter in 15 flat but the obe I race was not a new one. It was the 2000 or 2001 something like that. that body stye GTP

Bigbore
07-22-2003, 12:03 AM
yeah thats a heavy beast, theres no way it`s going in to 13`s stock, too little power/weight ratio, but anyway those things have killer bottom end, still a good kill.

Hey guys my GTP was running 13.2's ALL DAY LONG in stock form was running 14.8's. but you know any thing can happen on the street, not dissing you but GTP arent the fastest cars but they are not the slowest. I have GTP' well into the 11's stock blower.

I even have a few GTP friends that would love to come to a meet one day and have a few runs!!!! LOL I still love those cars, lots of potential, but as I said anything can happen on the street.

Harps.

Ps. this is my brother account.
Mine is JATTDEE328, for some reason it wont log out.

Jeff

Straight from Car & Driver, Motor Trend, etc, it is 260hp. I went to Edmunds:

Base Number of Cylinders: 6 Base Engine Size: 3.8 liters
Base Engine Type: V6 Horsepower: 260 hp
Max Horsepower: 5200 rpm Torque: 280 ft-lbs.
Max Torque: 3600 rpm Drive Type: FWD

And it is not just USA sites and info, either. Look at this site, Auto123, which is Canadian: http://www.auto123.com/en/new/carinfo/specs.spy?used=&make=Pontiac&model=Grand+Prix&year=2004&lng=en . 260hp there too. I would go check the GM Canada site but it seems to be down right now. :confused:

In any case, it is 260hp.

No problem reading here. If you payed attention, we were debating the new model prior to you specifying that it was an older model. To begin, I actually quoted:

the new GTP is 235 HP i believe.

...and the argument followed. Sorry if it was a bit OT.
