I haven't seen any mod kits yet, but I'm sure GTODEALER will let us know what is out there.
Car&Driver hit the 158mph limiter with theirs. I'd think with 400 hp and good aerodynamics that 165 to 170 should be easily do-able. Remember, this is the same engine that is pushing Vette's to 185-190.

GTOdealer-

Also please let us know if you hear of any body-kits for the 05. My local dealership said the appearance package is not an option any more because they didn't make enough?!?! Basically looking for a killer spoiler, front and rear fascia, and 18' wheels.

thanks!
