Pontiac of the Month

of the Month

  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Sweet! I love the Auras, looks like you nabbed a top trim one, too. You've got close to 300HP on tap, so don't have too much fun. :P

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.

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:
