    2000 Grand Prix GTP
    2000 Trans Am WS6 M6

    Ran the GTP for the first time at the track...

    Got there at about 1730 and got 3 runs in 13 minutes, before a Talon intentionally blew his motor and dumped oil all over the place. He left on a flat bed with everyone boo'ing him...

    Track was down for a good two hours and after that there was such a long line that I only got three more runs in in a 3 hour time period.

    First run: 14.666 @ 94.89 vs a Golf (16.114 @ 86.45)
    Second run: 14.806 @ 93.81 vs a Camaro Vert (13.773 @ 105.95)
    Third run: 14.790 @ 94.77 vs a Camaro (12.507 @ 113.76)
    Fourth run: 14.520 @ 97.85 vs a SRT8 Cherokee (13.704 @ 101.94)
    Fifth run: 14.547 @ 96.53 vs a G37 (14.139 @ 100.20)
    Sixth run: 14.353 @ 96.80 vs a Silverado (16.471 @ 84.48)

    Average 60' was around 2 seconds.

    Golf Run:


    Second Camaro Run:

    Headers, 3.4" Pulley and an open intake...for the last three runs, I took my driver's side headlight off in order to get some cold air under the hood and into the intake.

    I need to work on launching...if I can get that down, then I might be able to break into the 13s.

    Ignore my nervous laugh at the end as I pull off right before a cop.

    Pick it up already modded? At the line stall to about 1200 third amber roll as quick as you can into the gas without spinning. Should get ya low 2.0s to 1.9 range

    I have always thought that GTP's are cool cars.

    I had 2.1 second 60' the entire time. I think if I can get better launches, I can barely scrape the 13s.

    I'll try what you're saying next time, thanks.

    I had a loaded 2000 gt, but no supercharger. I justwanted to let you know that a guy I talked to awhile ago had got some larger ratio rocker setup (.2 more) and had fluid honed and ported the intake under the sc and had a 12.7 slip. I don't remember what other mods he had. But he was running additional boost. As for the spare I am sure you were busy with other stuff.

    You will be far deeper in the 13s than you realize if you can get low 2.0 1.9 range.

    If I did not have the intent of buying this car as a DD, I would have bought the parts the pervious owner had stacked in his room...

    Custom Front Mount Intercooler made by Lightning Force Performance(specialize in cobra/lightning parts)
    3.2 zzp mps pulley
    3.0 zzp mps pulley
    XP cam, springs, retainers
    brand new stock timing chain
    ported I/O blower casing
    42.5 lb injectors

    I don't even want to think about what it would be running if it had these installed...maybe when Nymphadora is more reliable

    You're making me want to go back more and more.

    pfft...been too busy to work on her...between trying to find a new job, buying a house, and working 70+ hours a week, I barely have any free time to mess with it. I only went to the track last night because I actually had a Friday off.
