I only get this when I really pull a hard 2/3rd or 3/4th under full acceleration. It's very loud, feels more like differential or axle movement rather than just wheel hop but I might be wrong. Is this a problem with '04 GTO's? Is there a correction?

Say, I didn't think of the transmission movement, but I was under the impression is was coming from the rear end area. I will tune my ears a little and see if it's more up the middle.

it will sound like that but the best way to know for sure is to get underneath and check it out.

When I took my 04 in for the Thunk-in-the-Trunk, I took a printed out copy of the tsb with me and told them "I was experiencing this issue". No problem and they fixed it.

most dealers wont argue if you walk in with a TSB. Its those that dont have one that meet resistance.

Where do I get a print out or at least a reference number the the TSB for "Thunk in the Trunk"? I agree that with that information in hand one should not deal with the usual dealer issues.

There is a whole list of TSB with descriptions and numbers listed on ls1gto.com. The thread is here: http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16555

You may want to look through that list, then look over your GTO so see if anything else may be needed while it's in for the other TSB.

Thanks for everyone's help on my "clunk in the trunk". This week I visited my local Pontiac dealer and without any problem they inspected car, examined my hand carried TSB, and ordered parts. Two days later they corrected problem and I can now shift with out the "big bang". All I hear now is a sweet exhaust and a small series of tire chirps-very nice!

well, I'm not powershifting all the time, I'm just sprinting away for fun. Like when you have an opportunity to hit an on-ramp and you get to blast up to 90 "just so you can merge".

I used to do that in my vette. MAN were those good times. converter would flash the motor to 5500, your building speed on the digital speedo in increments of 5-6mph, MAN was that fun !!!!
