    Re: Donna's new toy


    Our son has owned one for several years. He loves it.
    It's a fun little car. The turbo really helps.

        OK. I was asking because we were just in MI for the Pure Stock Muscle Car Drags in Stanton. I will be in Traverse City, Charlevoix, and Gaylord Monday too.
        Jim Did you run into Stark Traxler at the drags? Helped him get his Buick ready with a new fuel pump the day he was supposed to leave!

            I didn't realize it was pushing 20psi of boost. Makes that little car pretty quick.

              Yes, we got to see Starc and watch him run. Great event, we will be back next year.

                Aftermarket turbo?

                  No, this car is all stock as far as I can tell. Granted, I'm going by the digital readout on the DIC so I don't know how accurate that is.

                    Rob's doesn't have a turbo, must be a much earlier car or the vanilla version.

                      The standard Solstice came with a 2.4 naturally aspirated engine. This one is a GXP so it came with a 2.0 turbo motor. Factory specs are 260hp and 260ft/bs or torque.

                        Kind of like the Saturn Skye Redline, nice little cars!
