I think the new galant gtz's only have like 175hp, but maybe it is 195, the v6 right?

anyway, nos may help, but why do you want tpo race him anyway?

Actually, the tests I recall seeing for the V6 Galant aren't that great thanks to the slushy automatic they have in there (no stick option with the V6). Seems the 0-60 times were 7.8-8.0 secs.

yeah... with an exception of the V6, galants are extremely slow. and the V6 wasnt even that fast either, check up on those numbers i dont think 195 is correct. i could be wrong though.

No, it's 195hp for sure......the V6. I want to know if only an exaust and headers with a little bit nitro would do it?????.

i went with my father a few weeks ago so he could test drive a 2001 galant v6..it did not feel any faster then my car and at about 40 hp difference and being a v6 it was disappointing

How so.....it's 195hp..how in any way can it be slower than an altima???? I dont think that a stock altima could keep up with a Galant with 195hp.

well, i would do the headers and cai and exhaust, but i raced a Galtant gtz, and beat it by at least 2 car lengths and i run a stock 2000 gxe, so they really arent fast to begin with... so i guess the question is how bad do you want to kill him?

The 2000 Galant LS I drove at Edmunds Live last year was [email protected] fast. It had an overly snesitive. That thing jack rabbit-ed when I tap, not planted, the gas pedal.

The thing about the auto trannry in the Galant is that it utilizes "fuzzy logic", and is supposively be able to adjust to your driving style.

I read many reviews in the Galant when I was shopping for a new car. It seems that the tranny was a 50/50 hit or miss. Some reviewers loved it saying it shifted agressively. Others said it was a "driving miss daisy" slushbox.

I drove a 01' Galant V6 for a month and they suck off the line. They have a lot of pickup on the highway due to higher HP than alty. But I think you will destroy him off the line if you drive correctly. Spray a little and you got this made.
