High Performance Pontiac.... I never knew there was such a magazine.

<Merlin1 runs to the bookstore/magazine shop to buy it!>

2000SilverBullet.... do you have a subscription to this mag? or just pick it up every so often?

Yes, it is supposed to be a very good issue from what I have heard on ClubGP. Scott has already hit 10'* in the BadGTP, and is now tearing the engine apart because it wasn't fast enough for him. I believe he ran a 10.998 @ 128. Anyways, it was fast as hell.

Do you happen to know who went to that event SilverBullet? I know it must say in the article somewhere. I think I read it on ClubGP, but I don't remember.

I used to subscribe to it a few years ago but stopped because it focused on 3rd Gen F-bodies that don't interest me. Now I just buy the intermittent copy. Lately it had been good because it is featuring more of the 3800 engine mods.

Keith Lawson in his 99 Grand Am supercharged 3.4 L 15.1 @ 90 mph
Brent and Babe Dyer in 97 GTP 13.3 @ 102
Scott Cook 98 GTP 11.1 @ 125
Wes Blair 00 Grand Prix GT NA L36 14.0 @ 95

The last couple of issues featured a build up of the L67 in a GTP.
Without the intercooler it was dynoed at 405 hp
The last issue outlined the install of the ZZP Stage 2 intercooler heat exchanger and pump.
This issue outlines the install of the actual intercooler core under the supercharger with LSI throttle body. They set their mini-AFC to 100%.
Next issue will be custom fuel rails and custom exhaust system.

I agree completely. Who ever heard of anything as ridiculous as Pontiac being GM'* Performance Division. Geez.

Everybody knows it'* really Oldsmobile, right?



Maybe Buick?
