Just a few months after I got my brand new 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, my friends and I took it to the Moroso Motorsports Park for their weekly Test & Tune drag racing night.

The '01 GP GTP is equipped with the Supercharged L67 3.8 Liter 3800 Series II General Motors engine. The Eaton M90 roots type supercharger has a 3.8" pulley which produces 8 pounds (PSI) of boost. Pontiac claims that the engine makes 240 horsepower and 280 lbs of torque from the factory.

When these pictures and video were taken, my car only had a Cold Air Intake, the U-bend exhaust delete, and a 180 degree thermostat. I removed the driver's side headlight to get more air to the CAI and pulled out my stereo's subwoofer box to lighten the car.

My times were 14.97 @ 92.45mph, 14.91, and 15.09. It was my first time at the drag strip with a brand new car, so I think I did fairly well in comparison to other stock Grand Prix GTP sedans.

The pictures on this page aren't the best quality since they're screen captures from the movie. Between pushing my car, icing down the Eaton M90 Supercharger and racing, I didn't get a chance to take any high quality photos. To see the video clip, click on the link below. A big thank to my two friends for the colorful commentary (PG13 / Work Safe). I'd like to mention that I didn't "try" to burn out, I just didn't want to chew up my brand new tires or damage my new transmission.
