Definitly not trying to start anything, just mearly voicing my thoughts. As every car is different.
there are GTP'* on our club that run 13.7 with just an intake and exhaust and 3.4
every car is different, every driver is different.
Absolutely. I think you can safely say that there can be a full .5 sec range that the same car will run. Maybe even more. I'm sure that on a good cold day, he can prolly put 'er into the 14'*. I'm just saying that I believe the average to be quick 15'*.

Lets not start this whole "this car is better than that car" debate. They are different. I prefer the Bonneville, others prefer the GP, and still others prefer the GA. Pontiac did an excellent job in catering to the needs of all performance minded enthusiast--even the tuners with the Sunbird offering. Don't make me dust off my gold stars!
That'* exactly what I'm trying to get at. I fell in love with Phil'* GTP, then I got my SSEi. I love both cars. I love the luxury of mine.

Like wise. I mean i love my GTP, love the power and luxury. But if i had the opportunity to trade in for an 01 SSEI there would be no hesitation...aside from the mod swapping, of the Rockers pulley, and Exhaust.
