    Go test drive one. Mileage aint that bad on the highway. 25-30 if you keep your foot out of it. Weight without driver is 3700 lbs.

    Its not a F-Body...its in a totally different class of car. Just happens to have either an LS1 or an LS2 engine in it.

    Im not tryin to say GTO's are slow. I like them. I just expressin my opinion on them. The cars that i raced are both 400hp and A4's. Not tryin to get anyone ticked off at me or anything. Maybe the people that i raced just didnt happen to know how to push the gas all the way down, WHO KNOWS...

    Hey Guys,

    i'm new to your site, and you all make me laugh! (in a good way). I'm from australia and we have heaps of Monaro's (GTO in the rest of the world) putting out 600+kw's. i drive a SS LS1 sedan and it is close to 200rwkw's without alot of mods, just intake, cat back zorst, plugs, leads, oil & filter. keep up the good work and have fun.

    next on the modifying list is a set of extractors, cold air induction same as H8Machine's Picture the K&N one, LS1edit and i am hoping for close to 250+rwks 330+rwhp.

    Steve

    Best so far is a 12.57@111. That should get better now after putting LS6 heads on today

    My best 1/8 when completely stock/stock tires on my '04 GTO was 8.45@83mph, if that helps you have an indicator of the '04 (ls1) bone stock performance. The 05's have 50 more horses.

    Um, my '05 GTO came with 245 17's. Still not big enough, but bigger than 225 like you said. I miss the 275's I had on my Firehawk that I traded in!

    I heard somewhere that bigger rims take away horsepower even if they weigh the same as stock. Something about the point of inertia being further away from the center of the wheel. Is this true?

    dont forget that the 6spd GTO's have the same transmission gearing as the Z06 and the F-Bodies have the same gearing as the standard C5.

    I've gone 12.9 at 109+ 3X in a row with my 05 A4. Its stock.

    What is with the new Goats? Are they better than the F-Bodys? And what if we compare them with the new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8? =)

    you can and should get one.

    Vauxhaull Monaro??? Chevrolet Lumina??? both avaliable alot closer to you out in Europe and the Middle East. Same exact car, different bumpers. swap em and some badges, and you have a GTO.

    GTO and F-Bodies are completely different cars that share a similar heart, both are nice, but god I can't wait to get rid of my trans am. bought it for a beater, and the rattles and shitty ride are killing me after two months.

    I feel compelled to chime in, the car I owned before my 2006 GTO was a 2002 Camaro SS. Let's compare the two- Ride quality not even close the GTO conquers the open road with gusto compared to the lumber wagon ride quality of my SS. My SS had an aftermarket torque arm, subframe connector's and boxed lower control arms- My GTO so far has just Pedder's gas sport riders struts and shocks along with Pedder's oem springs. As for acceleration the SS seemed faster out of the hole but on the open road my GTO would walk away from it. Last night I decided to test the governer on the GTO, I'm tooling along at 60 mph so I put my foot into it shift from fourth to fifth around 100 and before you know it I'm sailing along at 160 bumping into the governer and all the time the car is glued to the road without a wiggle, it felt like I was doing maybe 120 cause it was so effortless and quiet inside the car.

    The GTO dyno's more then 330whp stock.

    This is a bone stock '05 on a 100 degree day in Prescott, AZ. That is at 5386ft elevation. Very high and low oxygen.



    Another from TX. THis was a 91 degree day, but the elevation was much lower.

    If you're talking "STock",the GTO IS FAST! Most haters won't acknowledge the car's potential and usually end up talking "mods". In my book, any car capable of twelves and thirteens right out of the box is fast. Is it the fastest? Depends on who you race.
