    A ride or a drive in automatic LS1 car with a 3000 rpm converter will typically convince anyone with warm blood in their veins that it is almost an essential modification for those vehicles. Easy 1/2 second reduction in 1/4 mile ET when you've got the tires that can hook it. Totally wakes the car up, and makes you wonder why it doesn't come that way from the factory... Almost enough to make a slush box fun to drive... Still, I got rid of my automatic for a six speed and haven't regretted it for a moment.

    Hey, there needs to be some people to balance out the ones who think the WRX is hideous looking, and that 4 cylinders (even turbocharged) just won't cut it... And then there are some of us that can find things to appreciate about on nearly any performance car.

    Say it Dan

    When I owned my WRX, I thought it was ugly. I own an Evo now and it's not one of the pertiest things on the road.

    I owned an 02 WRX, probably one the the funniest looking cars around. It has a face only a mother could love.

    I for one like the 05 GTO. I'm not that fond of the 04 GTO because of the rear section and exhaust.
    I get complements everywhere I go in my 05 GTO. The good ole boy's
    (z28, old school muscle heads , and Nascar dads) seem to love it.


    Also, it's whats under the hood that counts.
    Today on my way to work I ran a guy with a WRX (stickers all over the rear on the car) . I pulled about 3 cars on him in one second racing from a roll. Pretty rediculous difference in straight line performance. And my car is stock

    I had high hopes for the GTO, unfortunately...I've grown to despise pontiac and their styling. That car looks like someone took a taffy cavalier and stretched it out. Nothing distinctive, just sort of Pontiac Vague.

When the light turned green he left the line fast, so I nailed it. At the top of 1st gear he was about 1/2 car in front of me. I shifted into 2nd gear and started to slowly pull on him. We were pretty much side by side through 2nd gear. When I shifted into 3rd gear (65mph) I was about 1/2 car in front of him. I slowly pulled on him through 3rd gear. We had to let off at about 95 mph because of an upcoming red light. I had about 2 cars or so on him at 95mph. All in all it was a real good race. He hung with me pretty good at first. It wasn't until about 60mph that I started to pull on him.

    As far as I could tell his EVO was stock. I really have no idea? We both gave each other a smile after the race. He seemed like a really cool guy and his Blue EVO looked real nice.
    yeah.... I'll smoke you both.... but good kill!!!!!one11!!!

    wrxaddicted, even with an 18G I would say you are at best pushing 400WHP. And if you are on stock internals and a tranny then it wont last for long.

    I'll take a GTO with an exhaust and ECU work against your car any day of the week especially if you plan on going from a roll. And from a stop with drags the WRX is gonna lose all the advantage. As much as I love our 4 bangers when you start mod'ing the big 8's they'll always win the straight line races.

    Just wait until I get my STS turbo or Procharger installed . Can't make up my mind.
    I'll be looking at close to 500 rwhp. Thats pretty sweet for $6500.00 including installation.
    Hopefully, I can get it done this summer during my vacation.

    I was thinking heads and cam but everyone I've talked to keeps telling me to go with the STS Turbo or Procharger. Supposedly the car will be a much better daily driver. Car should drive just like its stock until you mash the gas. It's also a lot easier to return the car to stock.

    I vote for the supercharger.

    Have mercy brotha, you don't mess around .

    A single turbo GTO would be hot. The STS turbo kit is the one that sits near the rear axle correct?

    I think he was referring to V8 guys being more cocky and generally larger pricks...

    which I can concur with
