An $8-9k GTO is no where near what I would call "decent". A GTO going for that much (or little) is going to be ragged out and most likely in need of a LOT of TLC.

LS7 Z06's run 9's with heads and cam and get 600+ whp.

if it is, keep it. that thing will be a monster if you mod it.

the only thing i would worry about is the valve seat eccentricity. but, if you do the heads, you should have that covered anyhow.

This guy know's what's up.
