GXP and SSEi haev too very different motors. Simply put L67 power down low, LD8 power up high.

You shoulda done better. I got a 15.1 with a 2.3 stock. With a 2.2 you shoulda got a 15 flat or even a 14.9. Every .1 on the 60 is equal to .2 on the quarter. So, 14.9.
most bonne are quoted 15.5 or more, still not bad to get 15.2 with a 2000+
i suppose 15 is possible with very good conditions.depend on the track too.

I had minimal wheel spin, i know how to drive.

I dont want to discredit bonnevilleSSEi or GXP, but telling its faster than competition is false. 15 flat is still good for the weight.

Point well taken Mike, but I wasnt comparing to ricers . I try to ignore they exist. (the nitrous will take care of them). I meant made in Detroit 3800 lb type sedans. with enuff gumpf to still sit on a fender. ( chuckling at the thought of dragging a 290 Hp Avalon through the quarry on a log chain w/ Dually)
