Hey peoples. New to the GTO platform but have had my fair share of LS cars in my 29 years. Recently purchased a 04 t56 car with 198k. Decently clean car and I may get some shade for what I plan on doing with it. Coming from the drift community and recently sold my car I bought a car with a drive train I'm more familiar with.
Car currently has BC coilovers on it and aftermarket trail lights and exhaust. Trans has a weird grinding noise if you get on it and shift about 3k. Thinking synchros are out of it?
Other than that its a swell car and doesn't appear to have the mileage it does on it.
Thanks!
- Luke

Welcome.

Are you going to stance nation the car with some hella flush stretched tires to roll out with your crew?

Thanks for the love guys and yes, a hydro "3 foot ebrake and floppy rear bumper" is on my plans
Realistically my plans are just simple stuff for now like making the trans good (possibly rebuild it) a nice bucket seat, new swap bar, LCA, tie rods and rack spacers.
Never will i ever do tilty wheels on a car. I leave that for the generation below me :ROFLMAO:
also i just sold the orange car.

Nice car. I'd suggest getting some headlight polish/compound and going to town on your headlights, they are in need of it. Would be a quick nice improvement..............

Nah smurf that. Gut headlights for weight reduction and replace with steel mesh, and just have a single projector sticking out.

Because race cah.

04-05 were both red lenses. 06 had the clear lens design.

If I was looking for a new hood I'd also consider a mavman carbon fiber, maybe less than an OEM 05/06 probably.

For hoods I like in order:
1)Stock 05/06
2)Mavman carbon fiber cowl
3)Banshee

Just some options
