It must have started feeding on GM products. Turned from an Animal to a Canibal.

BTW, How many GP's does it eat per day?

Pontiac Grand Prix GXP...0-60 5.6 seconds...5.3 liter V8.

Upside: Lots of torque and HP at low RPM

Downside: FWD with lots of low end torque and HP

Oh yeah, they're pretty cheap, I think under $30,000 with a V8

I'm gonna run out and trade in my V RIGHT NOW!!!

I could be wrong here, I only saw the car live for a moment (had to run out and get some no doze), but isn't the 5.3 OHV? As in "not a Northstar", direct and live from a Chevy Truck? The power curve is much more aggressive on the 5.3 than a Northstar.

The GXP's are nice enough cars and the 5.3 is sold, but it's not LSx type performance. The GTP is plenty fast also and can be made faster; I liked mine, but never liked the counter steer.
