    What the hell? My New GTO vs GTP

    I got my GTO about 2 months ago. I haven't had anyone to race until earlier tonight, it was a 97-03 GTP. I know because I used to own one. I was going to drop some things off at my girlfriend's house and I came to a red light. This GTP comes rolling up and he looks at me and starts laughing and revving his car while laughing at me. I was like wtf, it sounded like he did some exhaust work cause it didn't sound stock. I'm starting to get excited now because I can see my first kill! Wtf, the light hits green and I'm in front until we reach the other side of the street and that damn thing was like a slingshot! He freaking killed me. My old GTP couldn't do that?! So what the hell happened?

    somones gotta hit this up with a heavily modded gtp in the next few days....i know theres a guy on here that has one in the 11s....i have no clue what kind of modding it takes to get there but it has to be significant......i raced a gto yesterday as a matter a fact.....turning left onto a main road thats 2 lanes right behind him ......he jumps in the right lane...me left...we both hit it with him a car up on me......by the time i grabbed 3rd around 80 i had 1 full car on him and im pushin 400 rwhp...i was shocked he kept up that good.....that gtp was DEFINITLY highly modded

    Damn I just went and looked at some of the times those modded ones run, there are some 9 second cars lol. I feel better now, I wish I would have known some of that when I had one. Now I need to mod the GTO lol.

    Bolt-on's- Mid to high 13's
    +Mild cam-Low 13's street tires, high 12's DR's
    +Intercooler-Low 12's DR's or Slicks
    +Heads-Possible high 11's, at least very low 12's
    Also a newer (Gen V) blower swap is good for 20WHP over a fully ported Gen III that the 97-03 come with.

    We haven't even discussed turbo or nitrous

    Oh and PS- A W-Body is not even close to an import, is a GN?

    He never stated it was......

    I've seen some very fast GTP's at the track before but most are mid 13 second cars, still very respectable. Fastest one I saw was a 11.6 car that I actually had to run against. Either way, the GTPs are not that nice to me and FWD. I would never own a FWD and try to make it go fast. Different strokes for different folks though.

    Sounds like he probably was cammed and had an IC... I should hit 11's this year if I can get to the track. Actually, there are quite a few that run 10's, a few in the 9's and a few that hope to hit 8's this year.

    I tend to agree with some others about his mods. If he was laughing outloud like that he probably knew. I have never had anyone laugh at me before a race unless they were really fast. Well except that moron in the stock 88 BMW 318, but he was an idiot.

    I wouldnt beat yourselft up too much, just use it as a goal to start modding your GTO. Thats what I did when I got stomped by a VW bug convertible. I found out later from some people at the track that he had a highly modded Carrera turbo engine in it. He shifted through 4 gears before I got out of 1st.

    My old GTX was a 00' and I did heads/cam/headers/intercooler/DR's/pulleys/ported eaton blower, plus custom exhaust and numerous other things. It runs like 11.7@120 if I remember right. It also put down 360rwhp with 125000 miles. It nice because my sister bought it from me so I can driver it every once and a while. she loves beating people with it, especially when she rolls down the window and sees they been beat by a chic.

    The main reasons I bought it instead of an LS1 T/A:
    1. Mileage
    2. Winter driveability
    3. Ride/seats
    4. PRICE
    5. $$$ for 2 cars

    If it wasn't for that list, an LS1 T/A and a cheap FWD for winter would be in front of my place. Getting a FWD to hook is a bitch!

    98formy, someone on the GP boards just pointed this out...sorry but your GTX must be pretty impressive to dyno 360RWHP J/K!

    My best friend has a GTP and he's done a fair amount of work to it: Exhaust, CAI, U-bend delete, SC Pulley, PCM upgrade, weight reduction, etc. He's beaten a couple LT1 F-bodies and Edge body GTs. Definitely a sleeper!
