    Curious...

    Hey, all.

    Just a quick performance question:

    My brother-in-law just bought an '04 GTO. It's A4, all stock. He hasn't said anything to me, but his lil bro says he's already saying he could blow my doors off JUST because he has a GTO.

    My '98 T/A is pretty much stock except for a GMMG exhaust system. Also an automatic. My question is, will he smoke me that badly? At all?


    Thanks in advance!

    Stock for stock, assuming you can drive even a little bit, you will win.

    An 04 GTO came with 350 HP and 365 FT-LB of torque. 0-60MPH was 5.3 sec and 1/4 mile time was 13.62.....

    I am thinking both being A4 it would be close...

    Not sure that driving skills play a part here being both are auto's unless you're talking reaction time to stomping the peddle to the floor lol.

    lol I was in almost this exact situation about a month ago. my friend has an 04 GTO 6spd and I have a 99T/A 6spd. both were pretty much stock. I have 17x10 cotton smothie's all the way around and a k&n filter. Well we ran them and I pulled about 1 and 3/4 car lengths on him from a 20 mph roll to about 90mph....He's not the best driver and I have alot of track experience. This probably played some part in the almost 2 car lengths. I think you should be able to beat him tho auto vs auto.

    Now I have a set of pacesetter long tube headers, full 3in exhuast including Y-pipe, EGR delete, and no cats. I'm in need of a tune now and then I will run him again just to see how much more I can pull on him......Oh yeah my car has 166K on it too lol. His has 69k

    I dont have an auto but every 5.7 GTO i have raced i have pulled on. You have the same engine and same power but he has over 300lb weight disadvantage.

    And about the topic, you should win since your a bit lighter... just stomp your pedal harder than him

    Thanks, guys. This is pretty much what I assumed and was hoping to hear.

    I'll have to throwdown the challenge sometime when his sister (my wife) isn't around, lol.
