its much easier to buy cars after they are about 2-3 years old, so that the 1st owner takes the depreciation on it, and usually the car is still in great condition. Thats how we get most of our cars, its much easier on the wallet.

Default 2000+ SSEi to GXP?

Does anyone know how many of the GXP parts we could use in 2000+ SSEis?

The wheels and tires should be a simple swap.

What about the bigger brakes?

I would think the struts/springs should be a direct swap in also - like the GM performance kit for the Grand Prix GTP.


I guess if you really wanted, to you also do an engine swap. However, if you are going that nuts, you may be better off taking speed guy up on one of his 600HP turbo charged 4.6L Northstars



PS - What about bolting on GXP front/rear fascia? Would we be able to just remove our "coke bottle" rocker pannels to get that smooth look?

I'd take some of the interior stuff, but I'll stick with my L67. Sounds pretty nifty though.

I'd get one, but for 45k I'd be for supporting Chryco going back to it'* roots with the new Hemi v8 rear wheel drive 300M (or are they going to start the letter series again??).
With that 5.7L Hemi that thing would probably smoke the GXP (no pun intended).
Don't get me wrong, I'm excited about the car, but with the 3800 in the GTP you get 260 hp and with an extra .6L only 25 more hp. And with the 5.7L hemi there will alway'* be support from aftermarket vendors.
Anyhow, that'* my $.02
