    GTO = comfort and a little rarity. Camaro = more support and parts, a trade off with comfort and driving visibility. probably better resale too

    Hey, wanted to ask your opinion on the subject since you have seen just about every phase of the GTO's existence. As you saw from a previous post, I am really considering the GTO for sale in the area. There is also a couple really good deals on 2010 and 2011 Camaro SS in the area as well. The GTO is a A4 and the Camaros are all L99 models. They are all the same price; give or take $500.00. They seem pretty even with stock speed and the GTO seems to have an edge comfort wise while the L99s have more tech. I've seen some other members jump from the GTO to other models and wanted to get your opinion. If you were in my shoes and were making the decision, would you go for the 2010/2011 Camaro SS or would you still go with the GTO?

    Hi Jerry;
    I had this posted for about a day and a half and have had no answers to my questions. I was hoping you could shed some light on this for me. Here is what I posted: I was removing the rear hoist bracket to install a fast 102 and I accidentally broke the 3 pin female plug that goes into the oil pressure sending unit. I found a replacement plug at parts geek, but the wires aren't color coded like the factory three wire harness. There is a green wire, a yellow and green wire and a brown and white wire. I need to know which wire goes to the single plug that is closest to the snap connector, and also which ones go to the bottom left and right connections. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is not covered in the shop manuals. Thanks in Advance!!

    Hi Jerry: I first wanted to thank you for all the help you've given me with all the questions I've asked you! If you would please indulge me with one more. I have a fast 102 intake for LS2 and, I attempted to install it yesterday, 10/18. However, there is a bracket for hoisting the engine up that's located just behind the intake manifold- not a problem for the stocker, but, it seems to be a big problem for the 102. I was able to reach around the back and found one bolt which I think is 17mm. I was also told by somebody that he THINKS there is a second bolt somewhere in there, but I haven't found it so far. Anyway, I think I can get the top bolt out with a pivoting/ratcheting wrench. Since I know you also have a 102 intake, I figured you must have dealt with this issue. So, if you could please tell me how you removed that bracket with the engine in the car I would really appreciate it! Thanks again for all your help and patience!

    svede1212 - always enjoy your posts - I have a technical question -- I am getting my differential repaired by a specialist in differential repairs that has worked on 2006 GTO's before - my car came with a ratio of 346 which was not stock and is not available anymore - I was going to go with a 373 - I don't drag race but am no angel - any thoughts on the best ratio - I have time and money on my side to make the best decision Thanks Karl

    Is it a good idea to change your clutch fluid after a hard freeze?? Only reason I ask is because I just changed mine and it made a WORLD of difference. We had a hard freeze a few weeks back and my clutch was being very NOT user friendly.....It is only 2 years old Monster Clutch
