Default Grand Am GXP

New, Grand AM GXP. The pontiac website says supercharged it will give 275 HP. First of all how is this possible from 175 to 275 by supercharging. Second of all would this not be the fastest production Pontiac vehicle (currently). Should be faster than a GP because of the weight difference.

What are you talking about? Did you forget the Trans Am? I'm pretty sure that it was the most powerfull pontiac currently (probably not anymore though)....
But i don't understand either how they could go from 175 - 275 with just a supercharger, unless it'* made of alot of radical materials from another galaxy that don't have any weight properties, and dissapates 100% of the heat it produces, and also pumps like 200psi of boost.......... I wonder if it'* going to be a roots, because i can't see a roots giving a 100hp gain at the wheels...

The C6 was a concept, and it was actually an AWD vehicle on the Grand Prix chassis. But they said the C6 was pontiacs design influence for the new GA and GP> GA is supposedly a 2005 model. A */C would have to be the L67 right? It'* the only */Ced V6 GM has...

The GA'* have a 3400 in them..so a SC 3800 could make up alot of that 100hp, but not all.

I believe concept car uses the 3.4L engine in the current Grand Am GT. The engine is then supercharged and intercooled. You can add 100HP that engine with enough boost, and an intercooler would let you run it without KR.

I believe the G6 is actually based on the new epsilon platform, not the w-body platform.

they are getting rid of the GA, it was in the news awhile ago. Its more of a rename, so they can attract younger buyers.

I don't think the car will be intercooled. How many production cars that you know of come stock with an intercooler. Otherwise, the car is still called the Grand Am GXP, just look at the Pontiac website. Also, all of these cars are not neccesarily coming out.
