OK, couple things here. Be very suspect regarding the engine, I highly doubt he has a 04 with the LS2 in it. It wouldn’t make sense financially. With the LS1 or LS2, no “chip” in this world is going to add 165~190 RWHP. $24K OBO for a 04 with 15K doesn’t seem too bad, if it’s in great shape. I would have great trepidation purchasing a vehicle from someone who is making these claims. There is no reason to candy coat the GTO's performance. I also do not believe there is a late model GTO capable of beating a Z06 corvette, regardless of the modifications. Good luck, and I would recommended looking elsewhere. :cheers

You might want to wait for a while. Premium fuel prices are crazy right now. There are thousands of 05s out there or on route. These are going to be an extremely tough sell without some aggressive incentives and discounts.

Slowride...... me thinks he wants to take you for a ride ........ My advise.... Don't buy a car that's been used for racing, especially for 30K, number 1. and Number 2 unless he can prove in verified documentation that what he says hes done, was done.... I'd keep looking.....

My advise.... Keep looking..... Stay away from that one.

30K for an 04' with an 05' engine, racing tires, and a chip that mods it up to 500 HP ? If you fall for that one...... I have a bridge I want to sell ya :willy:
