Ok, like I mentioned about 3 pages ago, what the hell can be done to the N* to get it back up in performance to match an SSEi, GTO, or 300C? Let'* help these boys tap the power and put it on the street.

i see where you're coming from... but id but an srt8 and still be faster... :P
but its still a 300

much rather have the GTO. BUT I would rather have a car that noone has like the GXP rather than a 300 where eveyone and the brother, mother, and sister has the 300

Both the 2005 GTO and the SRT8 run pretty damn close in the 1/4.
I hate the look of the SRT8...... ugly.... give me the GTO.

Still kinda sad that' Chrysler'* luxury sedan is as fast (or faster) then Ponitac'* muscle car. :(

Northstar performance? Higher octane fuel and higher timing. I don't know how conservative the cams/heads are on the N/A Northstar either, but i'm sure work can be done there. Higher redline (could help alot), etc.

EDIT: there'* always the new 4.4 Supercharged northstar. maybe heads/parts could be swapped? That'd be a fun one under the GXP hood...

but not quite the fun (imo)... even with 440 you would still be running withe stock srt8'* and gto'* and would most likely need stickies. would be fun though
