I bought this car in November 2001. I began modding her within the first six months of ownership. I love Monte Carlos of all years, but this car definately has a soft spot with me.
She just turned six years old today and I couldn't be happier.
Stock from the factory with all options except sunroof and the trip computer.
Check out my mods section for tons of details!!
This beautiful girl is a 2002 Monte Carlo SS. She's Navy Blue Metallic in color and has a dark ebony leather interior. This is a rare color combo in this year. It also has the GM High Sport Groun Effects package which I added. This color never came with this package and I believe mine is the only one with it.
She came with 200hp and 225 ft-lbs of torque. The quarter mile speed when I raced it stock was approximately 15.6 with an unusually good launch.
As she sits not with all the mods I have done, the is approximately 250 - 260 crank HP. It last dyno'd 198.5 at the wheels. I don't have updated torque numbers and I need to dyno it again after the winter is over here.
My last 1/4 mile run was 14.714 @ 92.325MPH.
As far as Montes go, this one is pretty loaded. The things it lacks are a sunroof and the overhead info center.
