Great question, I'll check..........why didnt I think to look?

Its a 4t65E-HD with tap shift, no other upgrades....interesting? Also the brakes are the same as the 04 gtp. Doesnt make sense when the GXP got the 4t-80 and 13" brakes?

I hope that 4 cylinder mode doesnt kick in to save the tranny? That would be a waste

According to Motor Trend, the Bonny will be on the RWD Zeta platform in '08.

zeta? what is this? RWD bonnie is what i've been waiting for, my thunderbird buddy has always had an advantage in that area. BTW, is anyone else of the opinion that DoD is just one more thing that can break? i think i'd rather have a full-time v8...

Zeta will be a new platform to be shared by several cars that will probably become favorites.
