I've seen these GTOs go up for sale quite often lately. Saw an 2005 w/ 400HP and a few mods going for $25K. No one wants them even if they are fast as hell. [sm=lol.gif]

Well, who wants a body design that looks like a long Chevy Cavalier? Never mind the fact that it's a body style that came out almost 10 years ago in Australia...

If it had more retro styling (I know that's what sold me on my '07 GT, and what has me hooked on the look of the new Dodge Challenger) I might've bought one of those instead of my Mustang...

Couldn't agree with you more. The GTO has a great motor but looks like hell. It actually drives quite well. I got to drive 6.0 ls2 gto once, but the style is terrable. I was looking at the GTO when I got my Stang and just couldn't warm up to the way it looks. Would be a great car if they made it look retro.

Not to hi-jack the thread but how does the GTO compare to a 02 WS6? My GF has a WS6 and is talkin smack and I wanna know if I should return the smack talkin or just keep my soup-coolers shut lol

Agreed! If it had the bad *** retro look of the old ones it would be a different story. To be perfectly honest, I like getting all the looks from passers-by even if I am driving a barely modded V6

02 LS1 cars are fast. 02 LS1 F-body engines seem to make the most power of that model run (98-02). They have a revised cam from the 6.0L truck engines and the LS6 intake manifold found on the Z06. The TA can probably trap around 105-108mph (depends if it's an auto or a 6-speed). Like I said earlier, my GTO would routinely run 105.xx mph in the 1/4, and those lard asses weigh about 300lbs more than a comperable F-body.

Judging by your mods, if you're racing a girl (and it isn't Ashley Force), it would probably be close once you get your tune.

The GTO is a bit plain looking, but that's why I liked it. Non-descript black car with a V-8 and a stick. If you've ever sat in one, they put the interior of A N Y Mustang....or Corvette for that matter...to shame. The best seats, ever. I wouldn't mind picking up a used06 after I'm done with the GT. Figure it'll be a pretty cheap and easy way to get a 400hp car, even if they have been building it since 1998.

I have a close friend that traded his 04 LS1 GTO for a 06 LS2 GTO -- so I have tons of experience racing both I think with your mods against a LS1 GTO that it'll be close since you have 400 pounds on him... BUT he'll win... JMO. You race that LS2 GTO and hands down he'll walk all over you and laugh about it. To answer another questions that I seen... No, they dont come supercharged... some dealers will do it just to do it... but Pontiac has no model offered that comes like our GT500, Cobra, Saleen SC

Its a drivers race hands down.... the WS6 is the fastest F-Body they made. BTW I own a 2006 GTO, I would be the guy Moses is refering to.

and to answer the question of the GTO vs Mustang, if its an 04 its all about the drivers. If its the 05-06, try and get him to race from a dig, its really hard to get the car to hook up on the street. It tears the stock tires to pieces, if he has different tires though and he hooks up the 05-06 will prolly have you by about a car length at the least. If you go from a roll it is gonna eat you alive. I love racing from a roll... lol
