By this being the biggest GM supercharged car can this big boat still have the advantage of bieng modded like the rest of the supercharged cars and be fast?

I bet the gearing is lower, and the intake/exhaust is designed differently. It could be done, but probably more expensive then modding a GTP/Bonneville.

The PA Ultra has the 2.93:1 gearing just like everything else. The engine is exactly the same so you can do all of the same stuff...it just won't go as fast with the same mods. It can still be a 13 second car easily, it would just take the same amount of mods that it would take a GTP to run 12'*. The computer is probably the biggest problem, because I don't know anyone that does computers for them and I'm sure its as restrictive as the SSEi'*.

I have actually been thinking about trying to get one of those to mod in the next couple years. I think it would be VERY fun to do. You could definately confuse a few LS1 Camaro'*...thats for sure.

Same engine, same intake, same drivetrain, same engine compartment, same quarter windows. The C is very close to the H. I have a friend who has a '95 ultra with 67K on it.
