We're not dissing your car or your choice. We're just stating the facts, try not to take it personally.

The stock numbers here have been verified. And I've personally driven one of those cars, as well as a Black '05 GXP. I like the looks of the GXP, but not impressed with the performance.

Even my '93 runs better than a 15.5 stock GXP time, and with relatively few mods. I gaurantee Ryan'* 98 (which I personally verified as bone stock and drove) would kill a bone stock GXP.

My personal opinion is the 'look' of the GXP went in the right direction, but not the powertrain.

You know I felt like my friends SSEI had more power off the line than my GXP but thought it was just a lighter car. I added a k&N filter and actually notice more power but still not pull I felt in the SSEI. I assumed it was in my head. Could my car be slower due to the bigger rims?

if you take the 97+ SSEi against the 2000+ SSEi and they are both bone stock....the 97+ SSEi will spank the 2000+ over and over. The 2000+ gives up about 400+ pounds to the 97+
and your GXP prolly is the same as the SSEI myabe even a little heavier

No doubt that the stock GXP is faster than a comparative SSEi.......6.5 versus 7.3 second 0-60. The road feel of the two, however, is far different. The SSEi had a faster-off the line power to it, since the torque of the 3.8 is at a low RPM. The GXP, since it uses a N* , has a more patient acceleration feel . It feels slower, but really isin't .
It'* not much heavier than a SSEi , and there really isn't anything to add. New engine and tranny, maybe. And the rims might be lighter than the SSEi'* stock chrome-plated rims.
