Or you could buy a GTP, spend a whole lot less on the car, put in about 2 grand in mods and be well over 300 hp.

Just by upgrading the Stock PCM with an aftermarket for the 2004 GTP Comp G you gan get 300+ hp with no other mods

THe Comp G PCM Is VERY restrictave

Yeah, those are SWEET! I wish I would have know that GM was coming out with the 5.3 in the Grand Prix a few months ago, because I would have probably waited to get that, instead of the Bonneville GXP...

I think the 5.3 is what pontiac wants to use to replace the 3.8 if I remember right.

You think thats cool, the new Vette Z06 is getting a 500hp 7.0L

Yeah, I heard the same thing. It'* suppose to replace the 3800 V6. I think they are suppose to put in the Monte Carlo SS and the Impala SS 2006 models.
