Roll down your two front windows a bit and feel the top of the glass. Youll find that its a double pane window to keep road noise down. (so is the windshield) :P

Yeah I looked it up, 252 HP is what it looks like. 0-60 in 6.4 seconds, it's crazy. Running the TAPshift I can chirp the tires into second gear UNBELIEVABLE. All the buddies can't stop laughing when I put it to the floor. Des is happy with it, well, she'll be driving it mostly. We'll take care of it :)

I'm thinking of the newer ones...you do have an LY7 powered model. The newer 09-10 Malibus and Auras with the redesigned 3.6L (forget that RPO) were pushing 280HP.

because the motor was built and put into production in 09-10 when Pontiac was awaiting it's death :)

Yeah... I hear these motors ran a problem having too small a timing chain installed, so apparently the timing chain snaps? Like, it's apparently too narrow. Any truth to this?

they are not a timing chain engine, they use a timing belt. :rolleyes:
