    New guy here...

    ...but some of you probably know me from LSxGTO. Finally getting around to checking out this site, I'll be adding it to my daily 'avoid work' routine. In case you missed it in the "New Member" area, here's my car....



    Home from the dealer:



    Now:











    This one is a bit old, some bits have changed under here...



    The "bits": GenTTR Twin Turbo kit, Yank SC3000, 3.73's out back, BMR strut tower brace, custom front bumper, Gravana Woodward FG hood, AP Duckbill spoiler, 19" Aza Z1s, SLP skidplate, Pedders struts, Koni shocks, Pedders springs and bushings all-around, Hotchkis sway bars, DBA slotted and drilled front rotors, Powerslot rears, C5 ceramic brake pads, StopTech braided brake lines, Harrop differential cover, Mini-pro fuel system, trunk mounted battery, HIDs, Dashhawk, line lock, Abear valve covers and other underhood prettiness... I'm probably forgetting some stuff...

    Thanks guys, nope, not been down the track yet, hoping to get out this Spring for some of that. I need to get her retuned and dyno'd since adding the larger turbos first. Just need to get some time to do it and some support on the back end.

    Carousel Red
    2005 Pontiac GTO

    Thanks again fellas - Carousel Red is the color (I think Chevy's version was 'Hugger Orange') and yep, that's a modified version of the RMR front bumper. Nothing quite like the pucker factor of daily driving with a front bumper four inches off the ground.

    Stock engine except for upgraded springs. The goal was to have a dead reliable, head turning, bad ass daily driver. Shooting for an easy 600 at the wheels with a pretty conservative tune.

    I may have turned a wrench or two on this car and it is as sweet as it looks.
