Hey Guys,

Thank to all you experts who are helping clean up my thread! I'm still trying to get used to the forum and how to do all the picture editing and such.

Basically what im going for is for my car to look very similar to a GXP, but without the V8. I will be putting many miles on this summer and wanted something with little better gas mileage. So i'm trying to get the best of both worlds i guess you could say!!!

I'm sure its possible to purchase and install an after-market supercharger if you really wanted to. There seems to be enough room under the hood to add one.....How does the Supercharged 3800 (SSEi) compare to the Northstar V8 (GXP) off the line?

Thanks again guys!
Eric

Find a GXP or 05 SLE with a dead engine and drop your L67 you have sitting around in it (I'd love to see it too)

The */C 3800 is pretty quick. If you want to turn your engine into the */C version all you'll need is a top swap kit, gaskets, */c oil, belt, and tune. I've never drove a GXP so couldn't tell ya how it compares to the SSEi. The 3800 */C has way more potential though.

I really wanna get the GXP rims on it....really bad...but there so hard to find, so might end up going with an after market rim that looks similar to the GXP rims. I should be posting up some recent pics on Monday with the tint, CAI, and also HID fogs and low beams!

Thanks for all the comments!!

Can't wait to see them Eric!

Get some good shots and I can do some editing on them to make them pop a bit more if you want..then you can post them up in the pic section and I would think next month you could pull off COTM for sure!
