    Those little blown V6's can be a beast with enough mods. I remember looking into it when I was looking for a fiero to put one into. There were a few sites advertising 500 HP (flywheel) and street manners. Nothing to be ashamed of.

    Thanks for everyone's help. I was just really surprised. I have read up on those things and I don't feel bad at all now. I'm going to plan on modding some and go to a track and see what I can do. Once again thanks.

    Nobody mentioned it, but couldn't it have been a GXP too? Can't say I'm full of knowledge on them, but I thought they were supposed to be pretty quick...

    Just be easy when you run into them...most are probably bolt-on high 13 cars lol. Good luck in your modding...

    Oh and 35thAnniZ28 don't feel bad if you get beat by one...a lot of the turbo Grand Prixs/Regals are unable to get traction until 65-80 mph

    The lansing crowd hangs out in front of the Lansing South Precinct on Cedar. The cops don't mess with us when we are right in front of their building. I'm there on occasion but not as much as I use to be. I'd be happy to let you show me how fast your car is but don't be upset if mine is faster.

    I go by GN on Club GP. You have a PM.

    I had to give the local guy a hard time, he's way too cocky. I have raced a few LS1's and LS2's at the track and on the street and it must just be dumb luck but I beat all of them I've messed with. Before everyone get's exited if they modded their LS1 like I have My L67 they would be running 10's and waving goodbye to me.

    I'm going racing up in Manistee this weekend. 1/8 mile but it should be fun.

    From 25 I have no traction how about 35? Some other weekend.

    I sent a PM I think, my mailbox only holds one msg at a time.

    I can beat Shrek too.

    I just blow the tires off at 25. First gear is useless on the street. I'm trying to run on street tires at the track this weekend to master tippy toeing the launch. I'll send another PM.

    Try running Shrek...you might be surprised.

    I ran with a gtp the night I first had my own 12 second quarter mile, I was cruising Fredericksburg after going to MIR and came up on a gtp with a plate that said 12 sec gp.

    So me being the dumbass that I am, I told my buddy to ask him if that was in the 1/4 or the 1/8th......yeah, when he hung right with me down the next light.....I knew the answer to my stupid question.

    They can be made very fast heheheh.


    There was a cool little write up on the gtp forum, I'll find it.....

    I remember that post. It's pretty cool that you were able to track him down. Nice EVO.

    I wish I could run 12's

    Heard you were looking for me last weekend, but I was racing up north racing. Our club race is at Mid Michigan Motorplex on October 20th 11:00 until 6:00. You are invited by me and we'll see how many GTP's you tear up, starting with me. $35.00 to race and I'll pay if I lose. My PM doesn't work so I gues you'll have to post your answer.
