The NA model has the same HP as the Series 2, but the SC model has 260HP.

Ya, I find that very attractive lol. Is that gonna go in the SLE'* or what? GXP is running a 4.4 V8, and SSEi'* are no more when GXP comes out so some version has to have the SC model..unless thats goin only for GP. Maybe i'm just way off? lol

Series III goes into the new GP.

Slightly bigger hp.

A series 2 sc with a few parts from intense racing and you will blow away any series III.

The 4.4 are great but I am going for the 4.6l. I can now get a computer chip programmed for it and this will mean I can make a 600hp caddy engine work in a fwd Bonny or GP.

Ya, the Series III SC is only in the 2004 GTP. I don't know if the NA model will ever go in the base model Bonnies.

But the engine looked so beautiful. At first, I thought it was just a shiny Series II, but with a closer look, I was very suprised.

Anyone know the technical differences between the Series II and III ?
Besides the cosmetics, I noticed a difference in the exhaust manifold.
