Neat. I was wondering why a topic about a '90 Grand Prix was made, and now I know. As Eugenics said, props for keeping it clean. The engine, interior, exterior, all look new.

What are some specs you've personally obtained with it? 0-60, 1/4 etc?

I can honestly say, I'd be shocked and apalled if that car beat me in a race. I hate the middle light bar, kills a relatively nice looking car.

But still, thumbs up for the car. Very unique.

iIt should be down to a low 14 second 1/4 with a good tune. Not super fast but its a fun car.

I dunno I always thought those steering wheels were pretty cool lookin. I guess thats just the gadget loving guy in me though. I have seen Turbo Grand Prix before but never in a 4 door version usually only in the 2 door cars. Definitly a nice looking piece of automotive history there. May not be that flashy or fast but still cool non the less and in amazing shape too.

Nice car, very clean for the age. Not to dogg you at all, because it is a very clean car, but you better have more mods then a tune for a 14.1. I'd honestly take that Got Boost? off before you get smoked my a actual boosted car.:graduate: I once owned a LT1 Transam boosted that ran high 11's and a 11.3 with 125 shot. Talk about fast. :laugh:

Yea I laughed at the LS1 First Gen. G20 and the LS2 2nd Gen. G20 :naughty:
Raced a cammed up LS2 with heads, tune, and headers, needless to say it wasn't much of a race. 1/8th of a mile I left him like he was sitting with my 4.10 gears, and 1/4 still pulled him by a car and a half. I can go get it anytime from my brother if you wanna race for that pretty car of yours. :laugh: No nitrous slicks against slicks. :naughty:

Motor vs Turbo... our cars should be on par :)

Stock for stock LT1 vs LS2 price? Not on par either? Let me get a stock LT1 and put the differnce in the motor then what you paid for your car =] How much did you pay for your car anyway? Not to dog you I love them ls2 g20's, with the 6.0, and they sound sooo good with headers and cutouts.

Why bring in price into this? I bought what I wanted. I wanted a new car that was comfortable to drive everyday, with a nice motor that could be made to be fast and the "GTO" was that. Also when new the Z28's cost just as much as my GTO did, it's not my fault the 4th Gens are 5-14 years old and have lost their value.

I'm 100% sure, I didn't pay what you paid for your new Gto. I bought my Z as a demo car with 6,000 miles for under 17k. So I could easily go put that 10K in the motor and be on par with your LS2 anyday. It just sounded like you were trying to bash the Lt1. Like I said, I'm not bashing your G20 at all bro. If I had the money right now, that's the only car I would buy.

They are two different cars. One is new the other is used, of course there will be a price difference. I don't miss my f-body at all, I'm much more happy with the GTO and it was well worth the money IMO.

Nice, clean ride. I really like it alot. Just a heads up.......its really not a sleeper when you have a big "got boost" sticker on it, though.:blackeye:

Otherwise, I congratulate you.:cool:

Wow, how did i miss all of this fun? Ill first start off by saying i have no false assumptions about my car. No where did i say it was fast and by no means is it, but it is a fun car and pretty quick for what it is. Second off if I wanted to have the ride quality of a panzer tank and the status of an inbred I guess I could have gotten the almighty z28. I would take that GTO over your lt1 piece of garbage anyday thats not even an argument.



That's a high 15 second car. But nice car.

Well im glad to see you did go back and read far enough to realize it is not a 91, which ran almost a second slower in the 1/4. Too bad for you the previous owner of the car already ran it below a "high 15 second" try again. This is not a race car if you noticed it is a 4 door FAMILY CAR. How about you enjoy your shitting handling, horrible ride, and 12 mpg and I will enjoy my smooth ride, good handling and 26mpg.

I will be thinking about you at the gas pump.

Love
Sam
