Wow, that is a hell of a sentence!...lol...It sounds like this was your first time at the track with the GTO and the best time you got was a 13.60 at 106? If that's the case, congrats, it took me two trips to the track to get into the 13s. Welcome to the forum, there is a wealth of info here to help you with your track times.

I was running the koni shocks and the king springs for awhile with just headers, catback, intake and tune and they seemed to work very well. The konis set on full firm really stiffen up the back end. Now that I'm making a little bit more power with the heads, cam and supercharger, I am going to go ahead and put in the drag bags. I should have done it when I changed out the springs. There are a ton of people here that say they are the best bang for the buck as far as mods go.

Whats the fastest time anyone has done with a six speed, STOCK (no mods at all) 06 GTO?
I think someone in here ran a 12.90 or something in an 05 M6, which should be the same for 06.

you dont suck

yo lorider 680 you dont suck it just takes time and practice i bet you do real good out in the street but when you get to the track you pull what you call a horrible timeyou see the track is preped for racingso what you have to do is get a feel for the track find the groove where your car runs best at then start making adjustments like air pressure what rpm you can make a good launch at and if you got the stock tires like i do i do a light burnoutlike next to none you dont want to rip your tires down the track though it looks cool your losing time idont know how long you been racing that should be a good start for you then after you got that then practice on the tree unless you got that i hope this info will help you and remember you dont suck

Best I have seen for a near-stock LS2 GTO is TM2FLI's '05. Stock w/ Nittos, the car went low 12.80's. With catless SW LT's, Magnaflow X-pipe (stock exchaust behind that) ASP pulley and a K&N filter (no tune), the car went 12.60 :eek: - which I personally witnessed at a track notorious for bad prep and higer ET's in SW Missouri. That made me a believer in the the LS2 goats - bar none!

This car is a beast, no doubt - but the guy can just flat-out drive. I truly think the best mod is the driver mod!:gears:

Cheers! :drink:

drover mod :ftw:

just keep working at it, and make sure you got some cool air...i droped over 6/10ths of a second going from 80 degree air to 50 degree air (also the latter with better 60' times.)

i wont question that these cars are beasts but what i think is that you didnt read my short storie in it i put down that i have o and i mean o mods on the car the way i bought it off the show room floor is how i raced iti plan to some serious mods later dowm the road that will bring me down into the low 10s hopefully in the high 9s but that will be exepensive cause i dont like nitrous not knocking any one who use nitrousi just dont have that kind funds to repir nitrous damage and if you seen some damage like i seen over the years you would understand i plan to do some mods over the winter and depending on funds to see where i go from there holmz28

IMO, you should do the rear springs and drag bags at the same time. That would save you the hassle of installing the bags in the stockers, only to have to uninstall them to reinstall them in the aftermarket springs. I kinda wished I had installed the bags when I changed the bags, so I wouldn't have to unistall the springs. Just my $.02.

thats pretty impressive, does he have any dyno numbers? I know the track is a better gauge, just wondering what type of rwhp that car is making... I am guessing somewhere around 360-370?

probably bone stock just with some tire...the more tire you throw at this car though the more "torque management" kicks in. i quote becasue its not actually "tq management" on an M6 like in an auto, but it holds you back some for sure.
