    I love the new 05 GTO

    and fyi.... the engine is not a Z06 engine, its the LS2, a 6.0L. They old Z06 engine (LS6) was a 5.7L with 405hp.

    Thinking of trading in the Evo? I love your car. Oh well, it will be easier to go faster with the GTO. Slap a blower on that and it will MOVE!

    Now Ryan will have a RWD muscle car to compete with

    CAN I HAVE YOUR EVO!?!?!?!?

    GTO is a beautiful car, especially w/ that performance package on it. very aggresive. But what will you do in the winter? GTO will have to go in the garage.

    ok yeah you must get the GTO... exhaust intake and some other minor stuff should see mid-low 12's with a good launch according to those times

    I drove the 04 and to be honest with ya, I wasn't to thrilled. It had major understeer when we test drove it. I am sure the 05 is a totally different car. I know APS has a twin turbo kit for the 04. Soon for the 05.

    The Evo's a great car, i suggest you keep it
    the GTO is a pontiac, not as reliable
    as for the power, evo's got potential

    I say keep the EVO.

    The GTO is a nice car, but honestly, I feel you have just as good potental coming from the EVO and its a much better handling car not to mention AWD.

    If you are going to sell for a GTO, I say just get a used 04' Z06.
