    Congratulations....Did you get a 05 LS2? Headers/CAI/Dyno Tune just wakes these things up in a big way.....A4 or M6? Here is a little list of gains vs. cost....
    The complete bolt on list....

    FI is good....I'm on nitrous but dont tell none of the kids ok....they dont think us old fella's know anything about it.....Yup....Kooks Long Tubes....Cold Air Intake...Dyno Tune will put 50+ to the wheels and rev much quicker.....of course then come the heads/cam The LS2's are responding very well to FI....5-7 lbs of boost are turning out some great numbers......This Maggie seems to be the choice of more than a few....

    I wouldn't recommend another web site....That is inappropriate at the least....we (members) try and promote and patronize our sponsors here....and I have LS6 Conversion FOR CHEAP ... we should expect the same patronage from our sponsors don't you think? And if you look through the GTO specific forums here you will see members joining and participating here (yes even one admin for the "other" site)...why? Cuz they get real answers and semi mature responses versus the flaming and childish bullshit "over there"....there....I ain't flaming you man...I support you....just had to air a little..

    torrid red/red interior
    2005 GTO 6spd

    congrats got my 2005 6spd wednesday!

    i have got a set of 20's scavenged off my 1999 t/a as well as zex nitrous wet kit with an illuminated red rapid fire purge system so mloud it comes with ear plugs! ntrous system is still in boxs beside the computer nitrous is the biggest bang for the buck--i think i spent around $1,100 and that is with all the goodies,blowdown,heater,pressure gauge--etc...

    haven't tryed to put them on yet i am going to look into getting some adapters today and see if they are gonna work--they came off my 1999 t/a and they are "lugcentric" wheels and gto's are "hubcentric" but i have seen 20" wheels for sale for the gto so i'll let you know---if not i'm gonna have a new set of 20's with z rated falkens with 300 miles for sale

    Fenders are easy to roll...I don't recommend cutting them as there is a weld holding the 2 pieces together......there also is available spacers to compensate that will make your wheel hub centric...you can get them custom made...

    You WILL need to roll fenders for most 18" and definitely for any 19". I have never seen 20" on a GTO.

    we'll see

    I just got my w-2 in the mail today---gonna use the money to get some goodies for the goat and talk to custom auto shops to see if it's doable---they're 255-35-20" falkens on a 20x8.5 wheel---fairly narrow for a t/a but max width for a goat---not to say that there aren't people out there with wider wheels on goats--anyway thanks for the help and input guys

    I put the Pedder Springs and Koni adjustables on mine...really kills that "squat" with 20's I would believe you may need the same setup...
