That car would be awesome to drive. I wonder what a Bonneville GXP owner would think when he get'* whooped by that, or if a new GXP owner who didn't know it was custom install in that GP -he'd be a little more disappointed in his GXP.
I wonder if a VVT equipped N* (and the correct PCM) could be swapped into a GXP with the stock GXP harness.

I believe this was posted awhile back -long enough that I'm not gonna call the big 'R' word out though.
It'* been probably 1+ yrs so it'* probably new for alot of people.

That is awsome! I perfer the L67 to the N* of that era. I'd really like to see the L67 sit longitudly in an engine bay. Now the new RWD N*'* with 320hp are awsome. And the 469hp STS-V Supercharged is god.

Pontiac put a shortened Caprice frame under a 1992/1993 SSEi. But the real kicker was they put a LT1 with a 6-spd in!!!!!

Chevy and Cadillac threatened lawsuit, or something along that line if they did that so the project never met mass-production.
Can you imagine what a name the Bonneville would have if that had nade production -we'd be converting LT1'* to LS1, LS2, LS6 and LS7'* now instead of putting pulleys on our SC'*. :(
