2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP with a Turbo LS4 V8

2000 Pontiac Grand Prix with a Turbo LS4 V8

Brandon Furches from Furches Performance traveled to Middle Sackville, Nova Scotia, Canada to help Kevin Misner from Kraftwerx Auto work on a 2000 Grand Prix GTP. The team has already made a lot of progress including an ABS delete, full body harness tuck, and repainting the engine bay. All this is preparation for the main course, replacing the supercharged 3.8 L 3800 V6 with a turbocharged LS4 V8. The new V8 features a Bullseye TCT 75/83 turbocharger and mated to a 4T80E four-speed automatic transmission. Follow the project’s progress at @theLS4king or @halifaxgtp.

  1. Fwd? Why? Didnt Cadillac do that 20 years ago with the northstar engine? Now its basically the American version on a Nissan Maxima but bigger, heavier, terrible suspension and more wheelspin. Im sure its cool when cruising through da hood, but high hp fwd configuration is good for nothing. Get RWD or AWD and a better car to start with. LS swap a BMW e38/e39, or something with a capable chassis

    1. It’s o.k. to do something that you personally like even if it’s hard to explain to others. We should all try to do something original once and a while.

      1. I get it…the talent, skill, dedication, determination, and knowledge is undeniably impressive (most car lovers would agree), it just sucks to spin your wheels every time you put down big power. I’ve had a couple 2nd gen turbo eclipses 400ish hp and a Maxima with NOS and none of them would hook up with street tires (especially on boost). This was 20 years ago when I was 18, but since then I’ve moved on to M3, NSX, M5, 1JZ swapped e39s and so on. RWD wins. We have a fwd honda drag car, but the point of that is weight reduction and its quick & easy to work on. The LS swapped fwd boat seems like overkill to me, but I can still appreciate the build. Now if I only had that LS setup in my rotary drift car, that would be cool (to me, probably not to many others)
