Just bought my first GTO about two months ago, traded a 2005 Z51 C6 for my 2004 Impulse Blue Metallic GTO with 48K miles.
Any goats in the VA area? Specifically the Shenandoah Valley area, I'm not to sure if there's any local cruises/shows for Pontiac only.
Well I upgraded to the C6 from a base model C5 and I loved it, my dad and brother did a ls swap on their 70 GTO judge about a year back, I'll post the link to his build. It's pretty neat. http://ls1tech.com/forums/conversions-hybrids/1765787-lh6-4l60e-70-gto-judge-build-thread.html
So my dad was very support of getting into a gto from the beginning since he loves them and I was skeptical because I dailied the vette for a year and heard the power wasn't quit there for the gto but in that time a racked up a few miles so I traded it for the goat because it was in immaculate condition compared to the vette and it was a lot lower miles. Over all I love it, I just wish there was more power. But that's coming soon!
Does anyone in the region have a couple LS engine tools I can borrow? I need a valve spring compressor and the ARP 11mm X 2.0 thread chaser. I'll pay shipping or meet up within an hour to pick up.
