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

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

When are the neons and big wing going to be added?
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.

Add to the list with a Custom Embroidered Underhood Insulator and Trunk Lid Cover along with Custom Embroidered Floor Mats from CAR Motorsports. Color matched to your GTO.

So far only minor upgrades:

1) HSV GTS 300KW Induction Pipe - left the stock filter since Chipmaster over in Australia didn't find any real difference between it and a K&N;

2) Predator Performance Tune - RWTD is currently working on a revised one for me. If you have an A4 - this is a must;

3) Next weekend the stock air box is being reworked to what the Aussies call a Modified Monaro CAI (basically just adding another 90MM hole so it can breath better);


LS6 Heads, Cam & cat back to follow in late fall
