The GP GXP is an LS4 motor. it'* a smaller variant, it'* more powerful, has a v8 exhaust note, and is lighter then the L32 it replaces.

I didn't join the Aurora dark side, but I did join the Olds/ Cutlass dark side. SSEiMatt93 did too, but his Cutty died Sorry, that was not funny.

My neighbor is a salesman at the local Pontiac dealer, and the lucky bastid owns a black GXP. I'm going to try and see him at work and get a test drive with him. Or maybe he'll let me drive his. That would be sweet

Its basically a truck motor that they adapted to FWD. It will be going into the MonteCarlo and the Impala too. Has DOD, should give the 300C a run for its money.
