    i raced some random guy one time with the same one, and we were dead even until i missed 3rd gear. I think my car isnt as fast as a normal ws6 though because it seems like it runs a little rough, i think i need a tune bad

    You'll beat him they're even from the factory even though the GTO is 400 horse. I think the IRS and the extra weight hurt the GTO and you have some mods so you should be good.

    here is my question do you have a A4 or 6spd and what does he have? If you both have 6spd cars alot of it will come down to the driver. I have beaten auto and 6spd GTO's with my A4 but my car and tranny has been tuned and it shifts at 6k at WOT so when I had ny 3.23's I could take them from a dig and a 5o roll but it's alot closer if you have a A4 untuned vs a 6spd 6L GTO. I have 3.73's now and I can take a stock GTO from a roll or dig easily even if they some mods done. A tune will help greatly with your car if it's and auto but will still make a difference with a 6spd getting the a/f corrected and you can bump the timing up a bit. Most GTO owners with the 6L always think there cars will beat a LS1 bird or camaro and sadly their usually mistaken excet for those poor few who got stuck with a A4 and 2.73's what was GM thinking.

    if there both 6spd whoever has the launch and shifts faster will win.

    Im pretty sure the ls2 goats are alittle faster stock for stock. The 0-60 is 4.6-5.0, where as the ls1 f bodys are 4.9-5.3. Either way its a drivers race with the edge going to the gto.

    It's gonna be close if the Goat owner knows how to drive.
