The new GTO
 
68 Attachment(s)
Browsing on autotrader I saw a nice black 2005 GTO with a 6 speed pop up in Jersey, so we drove up there and bought her that next day. Got her home, washed her real quick and got some shots. Already have some plans laid out.

To do list(for now)-
  • LS7 clutch
  • G-Force Level 1 Axles (good to 750hp)
  • G-Force Rear Coilover kit
  • New wheels (TBD)
  • 3.90 gears
  • Longtube headers (Kooks or SLP)

And for pictures:

Nice GTO! Pretty bad ass cars.

BlackWidowStang March 15th, 2014 02:08 AM

Seems legit.

Supra March 15th, 2014 02:11 AM

Thanks, man! I want to get it out to the track so bad. She suffers from rear spring sag though, and wheel hops like a bitch. Damn IRS. Once the clutch, axles, and rear coilovers are in, I'm going to try and beat the Cobalt's 13.1 1/4 mile.

I was so happy to find one with this low of mileage(37k). Had to jump on it.

Hahaha, if you haven't noticed, that is my go to comment on your threads and others on this forum.

But nice car!

I like those cars but the weight and that IRS keeps me from ever owning one. Nice find.

Durr4456 March 15th, 2014 02:34 AM

So no more cobalt?

I always wanted a gto. But could only find 04s and I didn't want an auto or 5.7

Cam that bad boy!

She's a fucking pig. Body roll like crazy vs the Balt. But it's a nice car for cruising around. It's not the quickest car in the family for now.

Still have the Balt and my DD Jeep. This is purely a fun toy. Cams will come once the suspension is where I want it. Can't wait. lol

Some dude has been trying to LSx swap one for like 5 years. Last I heard it was running. An SBF Balt could totally happen. Such a car would really fuck with people. lmao

I like the sound of the Bassani exhaust with a set of headers.

speedballin March 15th, 2014 09:46 AM

Damn brother that's sweet I'm pretty jealous I was looking at those instead of my mach
kinda regret not looking harder:/

flyboy1294 March 15th, 2014 12:04 PM

God dang, I LOVE me a nice GTO. Two of my friends had them in the last few years, and the combination of price/luxury/and raw power on those cars always made me green with envy. Too bad both GTO's are long since totaled.

I fully expect a detailed build thread, and cam to go in this thing by summer. :yes.

jdmpwr07 March 15th, 2014 03:37 PM

:baller:

I considered a GTO but I think the styling is very bland. They do make good power, though.

Jgib4 March 15th, 2014 06:42 PM

Out of all the ls cars those and the G8 were my favorite. Nice find.

I wish. I'm doing the less flashy stuff first though. New clutch, rear suspension, and better tires. Want to get out to the track ASAP.
