woah impressive...there's hardly any work done to it and its in the 10s... not sure how well a stock LS1 can take a whopping 200 shot though

Saw a stock GTO running 13.65 last week at e-town. Thats for all those naysayers saying they never saw one run better than a 14 stock.

Who said they never saw a GTO run faster than 14?:mad:

I remember Motor Trend doing a comparison with the GTO and the Ford Mustang Cobra. And when I posted the story on the SVT website Cobra owners were pissed. I don't blame them though. The Cobra, looks better, was quicker in the 1/4 and slalolm and has a higher top speed and overall more power.
Oh well, that's magazines for you

Just to let you know on hp TV they testes the new 05 GTO's with the LS2 400 hp corvette engine and it ran a 13.65- lucky as run by that LS1 GTO.

The LS1 is a pretty strong motor... Im not suprised he got into the 10s at all... 200 shot plus TC plus DR's and 3" dual exhaust is pretty much the easiest way to get ANY LS1 into the 10s... CMon now people IT S A LS1!!! Its just a fatter/uglier camaro!!

your logic is flawed. Just because they ran a shitty time in a higher horsepower 05 means the guy he saw with the 04 was lucky? Maybe he was running in better ambient temps, better track prep, and simply.. a better driver? Or perhaps the larger amount of horsepower on street tires is harder to put down resulting in poor 60' and in the end poor e/t? muscle mustangs and fast fords ran 13.5 @ 105mph in a bone-stock 04 GTO in a shootout with the 04 Mach 1.

Man i know i said it myself I'm really scared of buying a brand new car...but that 05 GTO keeps calling my name...damn it I dont want to be in debt for it....
my only other options right now are a 87 gn or a 92+ f body...but those might be a bit too high on maintenance I'd think?

that looked almost like Dragway 42 track in Ohio. Nice run though.
