    EVO vs 05 GTO

    I finally got a good race. I've been racing all these slow cars lately. This was the first car to give me a decent run.

    On my way home from work (Colonial Blvd - for locals) I notice this nice looking blue EVO up ahead on me. I couldn't believe it when we both caught the next light. 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.

    nice run!!

    I cant wait to hear about more kill stories with the GTO. Interesting that you raced an Evo, considering that turbowill is trying to decide to sell his evo for an 05 GTO

    I've had a lot of kills, but the cars were no big deal. I beat an 05 STS in a nice race 2 days ago. I didn't post it because it's really no big deal. I've also had a lot of races against slower cars. This was my first good race against a fast car in my GTO.

    I couldn't believe it. It was like a gift from God. That bright blue EVO stood out in the crowd like you can't believe (beautiful car). I saw if from far away. I had to do some tricky driving to get up next to it. Boy I'm glad I did. I've only had 3 races total against EVO's in over 2 years. I do know a guy that drives a black EVO but he will only race at the track.

    Hell yea, nice kill Might have been a stock 05 Evo you ran. There a bit quicker than the 03/04 Evo's. Slightly larger turbo. Also the blue was the new electric blue color, I'll post a picture later.

    nice race I'm surprised it put up that much of a fight!! I'm fairly jealous of the new GTO thats alot of horse power for not alot of money. Plus with a few of the Super Charges out there you can slap on and keep your factory warranty on the engine and tranny I mean what a deal.

    good race.

    Yes the 05 RS and GSR have the 10.5 turbo housing, and all the MR's have the 10.5 housing. Be concerned while racing an RS, those things can be wicked fast with just an TBE and EM. Take an EVO where driver is more important, Auto-X, track, touge, rally.
    Have a Greddy Evo 2 cat-back Exhaust system, willing to trade for: Greddy Ti, Apex'I N1, or Apex;I GT cat-backs. California only! PM if interested!

    Just wanted to add this info. My friend bought an 05 Evo in black. He is completely bone stock. His best run was a 13.1 @103mph with a 1.92, 60'. Im pretty sure if he got his 60' down to a 1.7 or 1.6 he could break a 12.9 stock. The 05 GTO's are trapping around 107 108 mph so I bet that Evo was stock.

    A guy over in LS1GTO.COM ran 12.6 @ 110 mph in an 05 GTO.

    His only mods are headers, x pipe, pulley, drag radial. I can't wait to get some headers on my car. I plan to do the same setup as this guy. Full length headers, x pipe, and run the factory rear section to keep it stock looking (and save money) Guys are making close to 370 rwhp with headers on 05 GTO's Thats some nice power.

    thats not that impressive actually. If the car is running very low 13's stock, then an X-pipe, headers, pulley, and DR's would pull of like 12.4's or maybe better I would think.

    Altitude Corrected for that run is 12.1 @ 114 mph. Does that look better?
    A 3700 lb car running low 12s with just tires and exhaust mods. That doesnt look good to you?

    Also that pulley mod is worth about 2 hp. He's also running the stock rear section exhaust.

    How many STi's or EVO's drop from low 13s to low 12s with exhaust mods and 2 rear tires?

    It's good to see SGOS defending the GM 5.7L V8 slightly biased again .
