My LS2 GTO Build (Thus Far)

New toy for me, I've long since quit paint ball, this is my new hobby/money pit lol. 2005 A4 Cyclone Grey Metallic Pontiac GTO, 6.0L LS2 -
TSP Torquer V.3 231/234 111 LSA Camshaft/PRC Springs&Titanium seats/Double roller timing chain/25% UDP/Vararam Intake/JetHot Coated Pace Setter LongTubes/Vigilante 3000 stall/Flowmaster Chamber 2 Muffs/Precision Motorsports Ported Intake Manifold and TB/Tranny Cooler/
Shift Kit/Porting on 243's/ 19" Staggered Petrol Nixons, 235 front tires 265 rear tires.

457rwhp/403 rwtq in a stalled automatic 4 speed Planning on F/I next year but staying all motor for now. Not a fan of nitrous although with a good 150 shot this thing would haul even more ***.

Wow, I seriously cannot get over the GTO/Vauxhall Monaro, it's a gorgeous car. Definitely going to try and pick up the 6.0 sometime in the future. Sick car.

He's right though, we brought the Holden Monaro from Australia to the states and rebadged it to make it the new Pontiac GTO. In Dubai it's the Chevy Lumina SS. In england it's the Vauxhall Monaro CV8Z/HSV Coupe 4.

Flat black on the trunk doesnt look like it fits. Stock heads?

Worked stock 243 heads. TSP Stage 2.5 CNC ported. And some people like it, some people dont. What matters is that I do.

I just think gloss would look better since everything else on the car is gloss.

Now you need to get rid of the spoiler.

Lol, I hate the spoiler delete.... If anything I want to get the Maverick Man CF lip spoiler and paint it to match the CGM. And nah gloss black is overrated, flat black = you mean business. (or that you're too lazy to do the extra work to make gloss black look good because its easier to spray on flat black anytime it starts to fade). The rear bumper insert is also flat black. Was thinking of doing some other things too, i.e. hood scoop inserts, honeycomb grills and lower grille, but kinda on the fence about it.

JHP V2 spoiler is $15 cheaper and comes ready to paint. It might take a little longer coming from AU though, though Ive heard JHP is pretty quick.

I almost bought a GTO instead of my Audi, but they just seem too big for how quick they are - do you ever get that feeling?

Flat black looks amazing with the rest of the body in a gloss paint. I'm gettin a flat black good on my 79 z28 camaro with a midnight blue body.

you'd be surprised at how nice flowmasters sound when you're cammed, not cats, and have an x pipe. gonna post up a sound clip soon, sounds just like a 70's muscle car
