1996 Grand Prix GTP (non supercharger) vs. 1999 Ford ZX2

Who do you think would win
0-60?
0-100?
(both are automatic)
and both are stock
-i have the escort zx2 and my friend has the GTP i've been in both cars when they are floored...they arn't necessarly something to brag about as far as speed but he has this thing in his head that his is faster...and every he floors it is seeming slow. I personally think my ZX2 can beat it.

GTP all The Way!

A Relative of Mine owns a 2000 Grand Prix GT and I have driven it many times and i must report that i have raced it against more powerful cars than an ZX2 and I won no Problem I must say that The Pontiac is a much better car because i have ridden in a ZX2 and there is no Comparison 8)

Faster?

Lets look at the stats: The GTP has a 3.4 DOHC, 220hp, about the same amount of torque, and weighs roughly 3350lbs. Your Escort has ( if my memory serves me correctly) a 2.0 DOHC, with about 130hp and 125-130 lb/ft of torque, and probably weighs around 2700lbs. Sorry, he's got ya beat on this one. The quickest posted 1/4 mile time I've seen for the GTP is a 15 flat. The quickest ZX2 i've seen ran it in 15.8, and that one was a manual.

I am not saying that the zx2 would win, but it is all about how you race your car. And the GTP model does not always mean that it has the 3.4 DOHC in it. Plus who ever said it has 215 hp is full of shit, stock they do, but that's brand new. I bet you he is not making 200, if he even has the 3.4 in it. Plus a zx2 only weighs about 2500 lbs not 2700 . And who ever made the note about the 99 Grand Prix, completly different style and design, so dont talk. And the Grand Prix if its a 2-door weighs almost 3200 lbs. Weight makes a huge difference, not unless we are talking a high speed race, but if you are talking 1/4 mile I would say it would be damn close!

Sorry, kid, I think you're talking to an empty room, so to speak. If you notice the date on the prior post, the last one dates back to mid-april. Apologies, but this thread's pretty well dead.

Dead post or not, it never ceases to amaze me how stupid some people are.......GTP with n/a 3.4's, no never.....if it's a GTP, its a 3.8L pushrod engine with a supercharger...if it's not supercharged, it's not a GTP.....GT's are the ones that had the 3.4dohc.

I have a 92 z34 with a 3.4 dohc in it. the car is 12 years old and dynoed at 225 hp with 205 lb/t so year doesnt matter. and as for a 96 gtp all gtp's from 95 up came with superchargers. Also i have straight up wiped zx2's with my z34.

yeah, that sounds about right to me....the good news is that your '92 Z34 has low 13 sec capability with the right parts. Get yourself a set of headers, a 3" down-pipe with a high flow cat, 3" intermediate pipe going into 2.25" duals with performance mufflers of your choosing and you'll be making some serious power. Add a custom cold air intake to the mix and you'll be able to sneak up on new mustang GT's and punch their lights out before they even realize what happened.

The 4.6 DOHC 32v motor is nice. Right now it's at 310hp N/A.

The 4.6's are great motors if you know how to drive them......a stock 5-speed GT(with air intake silencer removed) can run mid-13's if the driver knows what he's doing. Most people have a tendency to just dump the clutch with not much more than 2500rpm and that's not goin to get you off the line very well. take off with 4000rpm and a slipping clutch and make a good power-shift to 2nd at about 6000rpm and you'll be flyin'. '99 up auto GT's are good for mid-to low 14's bone stock.

I know this thread is kinda old and all, but when I read this I just had to make an account and post a reply. 96 GTPs never had a supercharger, EVER. They had 3.4 DOHC in them. And GTs still have the 3800 just not supercharged. SO yeah,
