I thought GTPs came with the LQ1 engine?

Either way, you've done a nice amount to the existing L82.

Ever thought of doing an LX9 swap? Or an LA1/LX9 hybrid build swap once the current engine gives up?

The car was a fleet vehicle when I purchased it in 99 they may have replaced the engine. I am thinking of going a little further LS4

IMO, I wouldn't. Mainly for two reasons:

>the LS4 had a limited aftermarket. Not as mod friendly as its LSx siblings

>front wheel drive and V8s don't mix.

I mainly recommended sticking with the 60*V6 setup since swapping in an LX9/LA1 is cake AND WOT-Tech has lots of goodies for those engines. Plus, they can handle boost pretty well and can be manual swapped via the 282 Getrag five speed.

I have the Monte Carlo SS with the LS4 and what I have done would surprise you.

Eh...I'm just not fond of FWD when it comes to performance. Torque steer, under steer, bad weight distribution, etc etc.

That's just me. I'm just glad GM stopped building FWD V8 cars.

LS4 in that Pontiac would be a fun little project. Is that the 5.3L?
