G-Tech confirms my fears
Granted it was a miserably hot & humid FL afternoon. But my '05 6 speed could barely muster a 5.4 sec. 0-60 on my G-tech. I have gotten pretty good at launching my A4 WS6 ragtop and can get it anywhere from 4.9 to 5.4. But 5.1 being the norm. I only have 800 miles on the GTO. And to be honest I am not sure how to launch it. It is hard not to spin it. I wonder what the conditions for Car &Driver were to get a 4.8 sec. Nice sticky track and cooler day, or maybe just a real driver?
Even the wife was skepital that this car was as fast as the TA. I guess its not...at least yet. A little disappointing, but I am sure the LS2 needs some miles on it. The TA got faster with age.
I wish we had something like the "lid" to mod our GTOs like the F-bodys. I remember the day I got my Whisper lid for the TA (its only real mod.) I g-teched it 5 times, then changed the lid, and g-tech it 5 more times. It removed about 3 tenths from my 0-60 times. 15 minutes and $150. No warrenty concerns, what a great mod and bargin!
It has been a long time, but I think the TA g-teched about 5.4 or 5.5 when it was new too. So considering that, I guess I can't be too dissappointed. (Besides the GTO is a nicer car and less expensive!)
Mods are iniveitable. Do we have something like "the lid?"
