    94 9C1- LT1 Caprice. Pretty much every bolt on they made, I had....

    Poor quality. I had to take digital pics from a different website.

    Here's the Car I traded on my D-Max:

    Volvo S60R(I miss this car soooo bad): Stock, it uses the same turbo as the GT2 Porsche, so that will give you an idea of how fast it is, and it's NOT a soccer Mom's Volvo.

    I had Ram-Air Intake, 3" DownPipe, Random Tech Cat, 3" Straight Exhaust, Poly Motor / Tranny / Suspension Bushings, ECU Programming (24lbs of Boost), Lightweight Pulley's, ran 100 Octane, Sway Bars, Twin Intercoolers, and best of all AWD. Did 0-60 in the low 4's with a Rev Limited Boosted launch.

    M3's wouldn't even bother, It was the M5's and E55's that wanted to play ;)

    2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. 3.8 Supercharged.

    Stock Eaton blower and went from a 3.9" pulley to a 3.2" and gained 5 psi in the process.

    Rydnhi4x4 (Steve) and Trailmaster01 (Andy) and I broke the pulley puller tryin to get the blower cone off to swap pulleys. It turned into a 3 day project. I put on an air intake at the same time. I had a set of Brembo drilled and slotted rotors with carbon metallic pads.

    The car was lightning fast with around 300 h.p. With the intake it whined like a Cobra Mustang. It was good for a solid 30 mpg at highway speeds and would do every bit of 140.

    Andy and I proved that on I-10 somewhere in Florida or Alabama....Several times. Heads up display and a smooth powerplant, it makes me with I never got rid of it.

    Andy and Steve here can account for how fast that car was. I traded it for my 04 LLY about 5 years ago.

    Yea, those GTP's are another car people under estimate. A guy that works at the local Pontiac dealer has one with pretty much everything SLP makes for it, and then some. It'll spin 1st-3rd easy and hang with the best of 'em.

    Here's the Devil.

    My car when I was in High School. BAD NEWS!!!

    '00 Civic: Fully built Motor by DH Racing (known for the fastest all motor Civic) from the inside out, Bored & Stroked to over 2.5 Liters. Turbonetics Turbo @ 30psi, Fully built Tranny from JUN in Japan. Carbon Fiber hood, fenders, doors, trunk lid, gutted interior. Ran on C16. Dyno'd @ 689hp to the front wheels. Went against all the rules and what everyone said, and got that much out of a SINGLE CAM Motor.

    Hung with my friends R1 (Power Commander, Full Exhaust & some other stuff) on the Highway, he never got farther than his shoulder being even with my front wheel.

    I'll get a quick burnout vid in my driveway tomorrow when I can get on my other computer. I promise you have NEVER heard another 4cyl car sound like this at Idle.

    Somewhat, after this car I got a BMW 323is, then a Mercedes ML SUV, then an Avalanche, then the S60R, THEN the Diesel.

    10.08 in the 1/4 on 17" rims and crappy BS Nankang tires.

    Spun 1st through 3rd, skipped all of 4th and chirped 5th.

    ..o yea, the car had a 13,500rpm Red Line too.

    Nah, that thing kept begging for more. It wanted Nitrous sooo bad. All the internals of the Motor were 1-off and could handle it. I've never ran Nitrous on anything I've owned and never will.

    Someone here keeps kicking me in the ass for selling the LT1. I shoulda gone with a 383 stoker kit to really make some niche h.p. That motor was torquey as it is. 10:5.1 compression meant that I couldnt run more than 5 psi at most so I never bothered with a turbo or blower kit without internal modifications.
