I'm a believer! I have hung with a gto (not sure which displcmt as it was at night). I am game to test my ap2 out against any newer STOCK gto. PM me . Located in socal...

I have 20 more rwhp than the time of the gto run in. However..If it's not stock, I won't mess with it.
I'm not a believer. I am happy to run you in my not stock, but heavier, 4 door GTO replacement. ala Pontiac G8.
You and I are both in OC, so anytime..

In a race anything can happen. But shouldn't.
I pull on my best friend's G8 non-gxp with intake,tune and headers. I had test pipe and tuned kpro. Since then he has a cam, dod delete, stall, and suspension mods, so things would be different now...atleast until thursday, when I have my novi1200 installed. I will be on the hunt for the GTOs now.

Not to sound bitter, but that's crazy my friends g8 gt with bolt ons and tune trapped 114mph. I don't see how you could mess up a race like that with a faster car and an auto unless he had a shitty tune.

Good kill, but their physics are being turned off or something for some of these races

Spoke to my best friend to be sure. Post above as been edited as he was NOT tuned yet.

^^ with the bolt-ons and no tune, his car would have been running like @#$5. If it was tuned, you wouldn't have been pulled or even "hung with" his car.

The car runs great. Owner and tuner can vouch for it. I may be a better driver but it happened.

driving has nothing to do with it. g8gt is auto. With header, intake and proper tune that car would be making 375-400rwhp. No stockish S2k would keep up with it.

^^ you just said above that it wasn't tuned, now you are saying it was tuned?

As I said, if it wasn't tuned, it would run like crap. If it was properly tuned, you wouldn't hang with him.

Went to the strip today ran 1/4-13.46, mph-107.04 in the g8 with 2.25 long tubes, no cats, intake and tune. 60'-2.067, 330-5.755, 1/8-8.744@82.19
With my F22c with test pipe and kpro tune, I would be able to hang until before the 1/8 with these mods then he'd probably fast walk me, without the mods I got the kill

Edit: fat fingers
