I'm thinking that the GT should run in the mid 15s stock with the 200 HP engine with approximately the same weight as the GA. I just wondered if anyone's seen a review where they did a 1/4 mile run.

Not suprising... I think at absolute best it could hit (15.6ish)...something magazines like Motorweek are incabable of. Unless evan smith (like he would waste his time) tested it I wouldnt expect much better than 15.9 out of it.

After really thinking about it and having driven the car I would say my guess-timate would be more along the lines of a 15.8 - 15.9 depending on the track and weather conditions. (I know I said 15.7 in another thread but realistically I think I was overestimating.) A 15.4 is probably very possible in Michigan though. :p

My "automotive computer guru" (may he remain nameless), agrees that tweaking the PCM would definately be helpful, especially bumping up the tranny line pressure a bit to get rid of the sluggish shift between 1st and 2nd.

Dammit Kelly!!!! You're right....I won't be able to leave anything I buy alone!!!! Gotta make it faster!!

The G6 GT was tested by Motorweek. The 1/4 mile time was a disappointing [email protected] mph. :(
I wouldn't be surprised to see some better times turned by owners. But looking at that result it confirms what I thought: Even though the car has a (slightly) larger engine and 25 more HP, the other factors will keep performance to about the same level as the Grand Am it replaces.

I agree. An owner has time to find all of the "sweet spots" and will probably push it a little harder than they do in tests.
