yeah i want a '96 Impala SS and put this on it...









There is a stage I, II, and III turbo systems....from 500-1000+ hp available from those....

A stage three Impala SS at its stock weight with 1000 hp would be approximately a 9 sec car

8 Ball...here i come

Compare the comments in this thread with the signatures of the people making them. Notice a pattern?

THE OPPRESSION WILL NEVER DIE!!!

I never got bored with my Bonnie, I just wanted to set fire to it for a while. After the second blown motor, I pretty much had had it with the car.
But I liked the experience of driving it so much that I set aside my fears and bought another L67, my Park Ave Ultra. I've never regretted that decision yet, although every now and again I still get the hots for something shiny and new. The feeling passes as soon as I've put that shiny new something firmly in my rear-view mirror....

In the nearly immortal words of my buddy the mechanic.

I only get board/tired of mine because i would like to have a truck again. I'm really a truck guy at heart but its not practicle now at all. Someday, i'll have another one though. And if i play my cards right i'll keep the bonneville too.

I loved my SSEi, but I can’t say the Jeep is too far off. Just a bit slower, and if I had found a 5.9 it would have been even closer, especially with similar $$ spent in mods. Interior options are virtually the same. I still wish I had my Bonneville though. No doubt about that! The Jeep should pwn the Boneville in the winter though.

I get bored with the SLE at times. The lack of AL7 seats and a HUD, and the softer suspension (regardless of the FE2), not to mention the major difference in power. After driving the SSEi for a couple days, then switching to the SLE, it'* almost lackluster. The SLE is pretty quick for a stock L67, but not in comparison any more.
