Sleeper = Car that doesn't look fast...but blows the doors off of cars that think they themselves are fast...droping a V8 into a car that "should" only have a 4banger and not making any light of it on the outer skin...being deceitful in what is under the hood...mind games...

'88 pontiac bonneville... they already have a little bit more horsepower than the average '88 car. my friend got his from his grandma for $200 and it does 0-60 in only 11 seconds! lol. (faster than my mom's focus even! lol)

Second gen (1973-1977) Monte Carlo w/ 454 or 502 BB. A 350 small block would work, but as I have done this on my '76 with a 330hp/350, more hp is needed to have a better time than 13.5 seconds (still that is a respectable time considering the car weighs 4300lbs with me in it). If I didn't have to pass emissions I would have said "screw the 350, in goes the GM Performance Parts 502/502."
