I was driving home from the movies with my wife the other night and a orange Gto (not sure which ls1 or ls2??? it had hood scoops and dual exhaust so probably a ls2???) came up on my left side, we paced at about 35 he gave me the thumbs up so i did in return. i threw him a rev and he returned the favor he honked twice and the third we were off, I pulled half a car right off hit 3rd pulled a little more then had to shut down because of traffic, it was a nice little run through 85 or so. He turned off after the next light so i didnt get to talk to him or tell him nice pull but still fun!!!

Ya got 2 posts and one of them is a GTO kill story on a GTO forum?????????? If I didn't know better I'd think you were trying to stir the pot.
Come on man. Let's give the guy a break. Honestly, at one point you had only 2 posts and you drive a SRT-4 but you've turned out to be a great member. Get my point? :D If he does stir the pot like others have we'll do whatever is necessary when the time comes.

Yes, what mods?

How is that speed (35mph) for the 6m and the A4 LS2? Can you hold a gear in the A4?

I live in Douglas, Wyoming and i was in Casper, Wy when that gto and i were playing. My mods are o/r x pipe, magnaflow exhaust, sss mufflers k & n cai, sniper tuned, Fiore quad and adjuster. fidanza 2.1 clutch and aluminum fly wheel. Iv only had two runs down the track with her first one was 14.4 at 104 with a horrible 60 ft 2.45 (density altitude of 7300) and second run i blew second gear out of my tranny :( next year hope fully though now i have my new tranny in.

actully machs dyno stock at like 275-285 hp at the rear wheels which after a 15-18% powertrian loss its actully around 320 or so hp at the crank. from what ive seen gm is right on the money with 400 hp at the crank on a gto??? there is also a 400 pound weight diff its alot closer than you would think. ls2 goats have the edge but it can go either way.

Wait a minute? An LS2 goat losing to a late model Mach 1? What did the mach have, a blower or just bolt ons? Cause stock for stock I would think the GTO would hand the stang it's ass. 400hp vs 305 (benefit of the doubt). I've seen Mach's listed as 260hp as well. I mean come on now that's not even a fib, that's a flat out lie saying you beat him LOL! If your modded I take back my laughing tho, cause that's a whole other ball game.

I just looked thru all 9 of your posts and didn't see any mods listed. But keeping this thread on track, a LS2 GTO will not lose to any Mustang short of a 03-04 Cobra or a GT500 stock Vs. stock with equal drivers.
