Default Hi all!

New to site, found out about this site through 'Hot Rod' magazine'* article on Northstar V8 mods. June 2010 issue.
Bought a 2005 GXP with 58K on it last Feb. Still figuring out how to get all the buttons and gadgets where we want them.
Only mod so far is a K&N filter. Don't see a lot available for this car yet. I'm certain I just haven't been looking in the right places!!

Welcome to the forum. There isn't a lot available for the GXP due to the fact that you cannot tune it.

Welcome to the forum! The GXP is pretty quick from the factory, but like Brian said, you cannot tune it because of the locked PCM. GXP Venom has nitrous, but that seems like about the extent of what you can do for now. There was a thread a while back about someone who was hoping to unlock the PCM but I'm not sure what happened with that.

Welcome to the site. Wow, we were mentioned in hot rod magazine? Cool.

Ya, mods for the GXP are a bit light because it'* a newer car and still under warranty. However, many of them are nearing the end of the warranties and people will then start playing with them. GXPvenom here put NOS on his.

:Welcome Lance!! You have come to the right place. Were all crazy about our Bonneville'*!!

Lance, please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.
