lol, I don't think that guy knows you can't beat someone in a race if you don't know how to drive in the first place. to tell you the truth he shoulda got you by like a car, I've driven both a gs, and a sebring 2.7l coupe

I'm guessing this was a non-supercharged (pre 97) gs. Since the supercharged ones do 0-60 in 6.6 sec (same platform and drivetrain as a granprix GTP), makeing it virtually no contest even with a lousey driver as long as he actually puts it in gear (a 2.7 trep is someware around 9 sec. at best). The non-supercharged gran sports are arond 8 sec. makeing it a much closer race.

There's no way a 2.7's gonna touch a 3.8. My buddy's got a '99 Lesabre w/ the Series II, and it would give a regular output 3.5 a run for its money. I set my sights alot lower than the dreaded L36 or god forbid, the supercharged L67. A good Ford Vulcan 3.0 is good prey for the 2.7. Don't get it confused with the Duratec though, the Duratec is a DOHC 3.0 that will spank a 3.2 fairly easliy, so no contest w/ a 2.7. Anyways, good luck.

No matter what you do to your 2.7 Engine, it will not beat a 3.8 GS!!!

I'm also just adding a Spell Checker also to the list....

I agree with all of them. as a 3800, well a series 2 3800 is about equal to a 3.5ho on accelerating

What you mean is that it's equal to that of a Chrysler 3.2L on acceleration.

No, I mean its close to a 3.5ho. A series 2 3800 is more than enough for a 3.2. I've raced a couple and while i've never loss to any of them, a grand prix prix or 2 stayed maybe a car length at the most behind. I could be wrong on this, but it seems the grand prix is lighter than the monte and impala because i've never had a problem with any of those two.
