    Default My other GM toy !

    Hey all,
    This is my other GM toy, I know its not a Chevy, but close with a little better styling than the Cobalt. At least I think so
    Its a Pontiac G5 GT 2.4L VVT ecotec 4 cylinder, with a Bullseye S256et turbo running 10psi with 10.4-1 compression.
    Dyno'd before any real good tuning was done @10psi= 272whp & 276wtq. Very very fun car to drive. Been taking her to the strip
    and trying to learn to tune (still need lots more help), best 1/4 mile run so far is 13.6 @ 100. Hoping with some better tuning I can get it into the 12's.
    This is the reason I bought my 2000 Silverado to tow the G5, instead of driving it to the strip, might break some thing on her and be stuck there, lol. Here she is.

    Beautiful looking car!!

    Do the drag slicks help a lot, and does it make the torque steer really bad?? Just curious because I have an HHR SS, and I was thinking about taking it out to the track and I might buy some slicks for it.

    Thank You !
    The 8x24.5x15 slicks made a big difference. Turbo kicks in and just smokes the 235/45 street tires, lol. Had to grind about a 1/16" off the top of the caliper high spots to let the 15" rims fit, had 17" factory wheels, not sure how the HHR is set up.
    The torque steer is not any worse with the slicks at all but I'm running a 4T45E so there is some but not as bad as the manuals are.
    Have the greatest weekend possible !

    Looks fun. To bad you aren't in Ga every Friday I'm home we go to commerce drag strip. My buddy drives for year ones team. I've learned tons about drags from them. I've always been a track guy but I'm really starting to getting into the strip it's a lot cheaper and easier on my cobra. And the 65 has made a few passes

    That's great, I go to the dragstrip when I can too.. A trailer is definately the way to go, and ask questions when you are there, you can learn alot from other racers. My 14 sec Olds has over the past 15 years turned into a 135mph 1/4 mile car! Good luck with your car!

    Thanks,
    I'm hoping to make it to the strip in May to see what we can get out of it this year.
