You guys are performance spoiled. My '65 Chevy Impala SS 327 with 4 speed did 0-60 in around 7.5 second and I thought it was "smokin." My 2.4 with tune and hi flow cat probably is 7 seconds or little under and it is considered anemic. Time changes all things.

Gotta agree with you. I had a 97 Grand Prix with a 231 V6 running the 1/8th in about the same time as your Impala's 0-60 and was trapping around 91 at that point. (would pick up about 23 seconds on the back half of the 1/4 on the way to low 12s)

So after having that, I want more power in my Sky and the stock 2.4 just felt like I was driving a Yugo...even though my 92 Eagle Talon TSi only had 190 with a 2.0 Turbo and felt like lightning when I owned it...my stock 2.4 was about the same speed but just felt sluggish.

Surely I would enjoy the car even more if had more power but for me more about pleasure of driving around with top down and not have to be concerned with possible maintenance issues with performance options such as turbo or sc. Just trying to keep it simple. My boat is enough to worry about with ongoing maintenance issues.

And I get that. I know most owners are in your boat, not mine.


I just like running around like my arse was on fire and my head was catchin'...

Don't get me wrong. Love the rush. My '13 GS350 AWD provides same. Not quite as fast as stock turbo but close enough.

Got this: Not Found

The requested URL /inventory/carprofile was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Probably not a biggie, and of low interest anyway. Thx for the effort.
