Default Series III SC

Has any body had a chance to mess with one? i am curious what they have to offer compared to the series one and two.


as seen in a 2005 Gran Prix GTP.

anyone else notice the lack of a strut tower bar?

They have a better blower on them, but they also have PCM Torque Management out the wazoo. Basically the computer restricts what the engine is capable of. The drive by wire does make throttle response faster though, and the TapShift would be fun to have.

And if you bypass the TM problem you'll see a transmission problem later....

Rogue has A GEN V in his 8-Ball. VERY BAD A$$ if I might say.
I had one (with the intentions of putting on a L36 if a kit came out), but sold it about 2 months ago due to selling the SSE.
P-Dad is kinda looking for one now also.

If you beat that car with 260hp, they quite frankly weren't interested in a competition. Your 93 was stock.
