Why the lulz?? Theres not too many 4000 pound FWD V6 cars as quick as a GTP or GTX. Not sure if thats how much one weighs but my 1st gen W body buick weighs 4100 pounds , its non supercharged and its pretty quick , or it was till i blew it up.

Just because it's "fast" for a 4000 lb fwd v6 doesn't make it fast. A street legal Corvette C6 Z06 running 9sec 1/4 miles is fast, a heavy 4-door sedan w/ a small supercharged v6 is not.

ZZP has a modified 3800 Grand Prix that will run the 1/4 mile in something stupid like 8 seconds. You can make these cars plenty fast, VERY easy. And they handle pretty well for what they are. Most importantly: they're pretty **** reliable. We have ClubGP members who have their original engines with 250K+ miles with nothing but oil changes. They will definitely outlive most cars...certainly Jeeps *cough* And for the record, 4 door grand prixs weigh about 3400 lbs.

Bump for a great car. Good luck with the sale.

I think you are getting off subject. Your seriously comparing a zo6 corvette to a grand prix gtx. For a grocery getter, its pretty quick. With the price you pay for the z06 you can make a prix run faster. Even with it being a fwd on the drag strip. 3800's are pretty solid motors. Fast don't only apply to the drag strip by the way.

My '00 WJ has 300k miles & counting, bubba.

I have a '10 Camaro SS, I know more about GM vehicles than you think.

& so what.....I've seen Ford Pinto's run 10sec 1/4 miles.....anything can be made to go fast.

Point is....Grand Prix's are slow, & yes, that includes yours too.

If you have the money to buy a Z06 modding price is no issue. Price has othing to do with anything. I can buy a '69 Nova shell for a grand, put $10k in it & run 9sec 1/4 miles.

for its class, no its not. Everything in this world when being compared is put into a class, cars are no different, and for a 4000lb 4 dr car its fast. for a two door coupe a vette is fast.

Price has nothing to do with anything but you where comparing a corvette to a prix. To him a prix may be fast, but that may have been the fastest car they have been in. Once you're in a drag car, everything seems slow. I have an 87 firebird with a 406, shaved and worked dart heads, KB flat tops, 495/502, N/A and not on the bottle. Fastest I've ever went was 7.19 in the 1/8th. You may even say thats slow. To me, thats fast, because its the quickest I have went.

BTW, Like your avatar -01limited-, lol

Then that goes to show you the simple fact that your definition of fast is different than most others. Not saying your lieing, but I cant see a Lotus running under 8 secs in the 1/4. 1/8 is possible, but to get across the 1/4 line in under 8 secs you would need to be going about 200 mph. Unless its a modified tube chassis car with the car lengthened and one hell of a boosted motor. Most the Lotus' are made for curves with a small wheel base, why would anyone want to build one for a drag strip.

Stop giving people ideas. They are not sports cars nor should have ever been intended as such. The 3800 is a nice reliable engine for a daily driver that wont break the bank.

To further prove the point that was made:

A sports car is a small, usually two seat automobile designed for high speed driving and maneuverability.
Sports cars have been either spartan or luxurious, but good handling and high performance is requisite.

The Grand Prix is good at neither.

Lulz. Incorrect. The 4T65E's major down fall was the 4th gear input shaft. When it was original made they used a soft steel. After they started going out they replaced them with a hardened steel input shaft.

sorry sir...correct to an extent.

the most common problem with the 4t65e and hd were harsh shift problems. Causes by a PCS located inside the tranny itself.

Yeah I was talking about it in another thread. The one I sold my cousin between 300k and 400k only had the oil changed every 15 to 20K miles, didnt burn any, nor leaked and still was a champ, and I had a buddy that submerged his and got it stuck, had to have someone pull him out, once he got out it fired right up and is still running to this day. he just hit a rock and bent the **** out of something up front and threw the alignment off.

Well , my tranny outlasted my 3800. LOL. I only have 130,000 on my motor , but i bought the car "blown up" off cl for 400 bucks. Changed the head gaskets and drove it for a few weeks before i spun something in the bottom end. Who knows how abused that motor was but i will give that tranny props , it will squawk tires shifting into 2nd and 3rd. LOL.
