My list of mods so far.

Hummm, kind of boring but try to get the ball rolling here.

Rear fender lips rolled.
Boyd Coddington Tuned wheels, 18x8, 18x9"
Dunlop SP9000 275 and 245 tires

Custom made, by me, cold air box that appears stock but it's plenty opened up underneath.
K&N air filter
4" cold air tube
Ported and polished throttlebody with bump stop mod
NGK TR55 plugs
Taylor Thundervolt ignition wires.
Pace Z06 MAF no screen
ASP reduction crank pulley

Hoen lighting, all six bulbs

Custom recessed in dashboard Navman/Delphi GPS navigation system with forward looking helicopter view. (Sweet.)
Device to auto lock/unlock doors on key ignition

Trunk cargo net

One of my first CF posts back in 1999 was similar to this and I was laughed off the board. Hoping for a repeat.

Tight fit on the 275 rear tires with the GTO. I was one of the early ones so my offset was not right on the money. It was either send the wheels back or roll my rear fenders so I opted for the latter because I was sick of waiting and I liked my new wheels/tires.

Offset is still screwy and not even fully decided yet as to what is guaranteed to work when going from an 8" rear to a 9" wide rear wheel. My rear tires are 275/35/18 and stock is 245/45/17

If they seriously gave an increase in power I would be all over it. Did you read the older C&D article where they actually did top speed testing on several cars with and without a wing and in every exception but one the cars were slower with the wing on. I think, actually, that I will dig that issue up and make photocopies of that article and stick a copy under the wiper of ever ricer wing car I come across. That is a public service, right?

My GTO has a wing. I wish it didn't. When I get the dough I'm taking it off and having the holes filled in. Hate wings, don't like hood scoops.

Sorry to ramble.

I'm with you. I took the wing off to see how the car looked. I like it better. I will get the holes filled ... including the two small ones left when you remove the rear pontiac emblem.

There is what appears to be a nice lip spoiler available from JHP in Australia - www.jhp.com/au. It is shown in yellow on a gto with other body mods.

Props on buying some awesome rims!
