stock for stock the gxp wins in the 1/4 but once the modding begins the ssei will stomp the gxp'*. nobody has aftermarket parts for the gxp'*.

That may be true, but some Caddies used them also, right? So it would be stupid for people not to make aftermarkets for it, it would be killing two birds with one stone. That is an interesting question...

with any type of mods the SSEI pulls away from the GXP

with the GXP shy of exhaust theres not much you can do to mod it like you can an ssei

mainly cause the motor is so damn tight in there and they dont make parts for it like the L67..not to mention you cant touch that computer to save your life

in the long run..SSEI is easier to mod..and most of the stuff from the GXP is swappable as look at gunners

yea your right there. the only thing i can think of is all the northstars are in caddies which are luxury cars. maybe people didnt want to take a risk on making performance parts for a luxury car or a low production bonneville gxp.
