GTP Eats Mustang GT's and poops Subaru STI's
By eddymerckx on
2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 2dr Coupe
The 3.8 SC motor is under-rated at 240hp, unlike the Japanese who over-state their motor output.
My stock motor on a Dyno put out 304 hp.
If you dream of Audi S4 performance, but need reliability, look no further than the Pontiac GTP.
These engines are bullet proof, except for the occasional intake gasket which although time consuming is not a terrible job. $500 tops at any shop.
A Wards top ten engine mated to a reworked GM trans able to take the extra output.
The GTP engine. It differs internally from the normal 3.8. The HUD display is pretty neat and the
stock audio system isn't bad!
CRAPPY interior. low rent economy interior the door panels will break, knobs, buttons all break, but thank goodness for ebay and a zillion do it yourself video's on you tube.
I would invest in the
upgrading the front brakes to the same vintage Impala calipers and hanger.
