Im back. Update more pics.

Post by Neon4Life » Sat Aug 20, 2011 7:13 pm

So yes im back but not in another 2gn sadly. i coulda gone SRT-4 but i thought id change it up some. So i flew out to Jersey thursday and drove the car back yesterday. visited some family down in Queens NY while i was there too. loads of fun. Felt like being home when i went into NY as most of you that know me know that im from Brooklyn NY. well yeah my new car now is this 2005 Pontiac GTO V8 LS2 engine. This car has some engine mods and suspension mods, upgraded clutch, exhuast,wheels, etc. heres just 2 pics that i took earlier today. kinda tired or i woulda tooken more pics but just wanted to post for some of you to know that dont know already what i got, thats if u arent on my FB & have seen already.

i overall love the car, its a big step up from a Neon. deffinitely nice power from it.

My only complaint and the ones I hear from GTO owners a lot is that I'm pretty sure the widest tire you can fit in the rear is a 275....without doing major work.


:(


275 drag radial ftw lol

uhh i dont know much about that, i do know you can fit a pretty fat tire on it if you got coilovers.
esteinmaier wrote:Secksee! Can I put a turbo on it?

why 1 when you can put 2 on it and make it a twin turbo setup. they dont sell it anymore since most go with a supercharger setup of some kind like the Pro charger i wanna put on it next year but yes a twin turbo setup is possible on these.

Nice yellow jacket. Not my favorite color but I think you like yellow cars. :lol: Almost went for an IBM 2004 before I got the SRT. Watch out, the paint on those cars is paper thin.


Want an exhaust? My buddy is trying to sell a nearly brand new Magnaflow. Never seen snow, never been wet.

^^at least that's a nice Amerex extinguisher.

Looks nice. One lived down the street from me a couple years ago. It was amazing. It was a NA setup with a cam package. It sounded glorious!

I think PWR can cook you up a nice single or twin turbo kit for that thing. Though you are right, most go with superchargers. They are cheaper and easier.

I have been looking into the twin-turbo setup for the challengers. I'm just waiting for a good 20k so I can get all the other goodies for 800-1000hp.

If I were you I would look into a heads/cam package, I just love the way those engines sound.

I love the 6.0's. The sound that comes out of them is just amazing. Followed some on a cruise in NY one time. It's like an angry old opera singer just yelling all the time.

Alex- yeah we call them hat here too but those usualy have a different bumper package on em & cost like real high & they are super rare.

Titan- already has an exhaust, JBA Headers with Corsa Sport Back. Sounds way beast. He actually had a Magnaflow on this before but said it was way too stock sounding so that's why he went with the Corsa.

Ronin- yeah id prolly just go with a Supercharger cause there's more info out about superchargers on these cars. Turbo no one really knows much on em because there's not many with a turbo setup. Head/cam package would be my next upgrade but this thing already has K&N intake, Ported TB Ported Intake, & has been tuned already making 374HP/368TQ. Feels good. It is the LS2 engine wich makes 400hp but you know they are always not to those specs so I'm thinking if it was fully stock it would only be making like 350 & the LS1 engine that comes in 04 GTO wich says produces 350 only makes like 310 or something.
