GTO NA Build

Hello guys. I think i have a spun bearing so needless to say i am going to pull the engine and rebuild. So that leads me to an opportunity. My goal is to rebuild the engine and keep it NA. I want to have the max amount of safe power. What i mean by safe is enough power to keep it as a DD. Enough power to have speed but not have to rebuild the engine every 50k miles. So reliable max power and keep it NA

I have a 2006 GTO manual trans with cold air intake and exhaust.

I have been doing some reading and I am going to need some help on what to pick out. Its using a t56 and i would like to keep it that way.

I have read that there are some sleeves i can use to increase the strength of the engine. The questions i have is:

How can i pull the engine? What are the steps? If there is a good write up i would love to check it out.

What type of Crank?
What type of pistons?
What type of heads? Should I port the heads I have or buy different Heads?
What type of clutch?
Will i need to upgrade the drive shaft?


I would like to buy an upgraded oil pump or bore mine out for better flow.

I am working two jobs just to do this project.

So for all your questions in the first post you need to call someone like Ed Curtis of Flow Tech Inductions. Tell him what your goals are and he will tell you exactly what you need.

For your second post you can do a simple google search that will reveal that answer and most likely a video of what tools and how to do what you're looking to do.

Your gonna spend a bit of money on this project and end up with "one time use" tools, unless you're considering regular engine pulls. Take it to a reputable speed shop so you have a labor warranty. My local shop isn't cheap, but offer lifetime warranty on their work. JMO

Good suggestion. I don't think that what sounds like a first attempt at rebuilding an engine should be done based on advice from an car site and YouTube videos.

2005 Pontaic GTO - CGM 6 Speed (My car)
2004 Ford Ranger Edge Supercab (My daily driver)
2010 Mercedes Benz C300 Sedan (Wife's car)
2014 Kia Rio LX (Wife's daily driver)
