Let me say hello and I'm glad to be a GTO owner!! I'm not much of a "car guy" so to speak, I have the mental capacity just not the mechanical ability or the financial support! :D

I'm from Beckley, WV and also ride a GSXR750 for even more fun!

I went to the dealer to look at the G6's, wanted to get rid of my gas hog truck (Ram1500 360 4x4) for something a little easier on gas and a little cheaper.......didn't exactly achieve either :lol:

I bought their last 04 GTO for less than what I could have got a G6 GT for and I got 10times the car!! Gas mileage is slightly better but a helluva lot more fun using it up!

Anyways, I've been lurking around here for the most part and the ls1gto spot....no real mods in mind, I do eventually want headers and an exhaust (and brakes and wheels and bushings and sway bars and new speakers and the list goes on). It seems there's a lot of support for the SLP exhausts with the rest being a mixed bag....I've a video of a red GTO with a Corsa system (I think) and that car just sounds awesome! Zaino will be here tomorrow

This seems like a nice place with tons of info and really good, cool people....hopefully you guys will have me! :willy:

Here's a couple of short vids I made, simple roll-ons and that's it. I've only got about 350miles on the car, I've mostly babied it with the occassional hard run up to 80.

Congrats on the new car. There is a place in Washington, PA, called Stropes. They are LS1 specialists. If you want to make your car go fast call them. Aaron Strope also owns a GTO. Your about 2.5 hours south of there.

More info for the uninformed, please. :D

Do they reflash ECM's?
Cam and/or head installs?
Suspension?
Blowers?
Headers?
