If you are in the market to upgrade your solstice give Chuck Mallett, owner of Ohio-based Mallett Cars, a call and ask for his standard ls2 package. Blessing the car with 400hp gives some impressive numbers:
- 0 to 60 mph: 4.4 sec
- 0 to 100 mph: 10.2 sec
- 0 to 120 mph: 14.8 sec
- Standing 1/4-mile: 12.8 sec @ 112 mph
- 300 ft dia skidpad: 1.02 g
There is one draw back from this kind of extra power; wheel slip. This thing spins the tires in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear. Plus with the stock solstice transmission you have to shift once more then the normal T-56. Although his websites shows he is going to offer the 6 speed soon. Mallett offers six packages for the solstice with many additional upgrades. Check out his website for more details.
