Torrid Red



After many hours spent looking, making calls and driving all over, I've finally landed myself a new ride. Here she is folks!
2006 Pontiac GTO, 400hp 6.0 LS2 with Auto trans. Torrid red/Black leather interior.
-Car has had some tasteful mods done, they are:
-Pacesetter Longtube headers and midpipes(ceramic coated inside and out) with Borla catback exhaust
-Lingenfelter Cold air intake
-Reflash tuned for existing mods, also shift points have been upped
-SAP front fascia and grilles, along with black painted rear valance and trunk
-5000k HID's in stock projector headlights, with 3500k fogs also
-Staggered 18"x8.5" front/19"x9.5" rear VMR VB3's in hyper black with ARP wheel studs all around
-BMR Drag Bags

I absolutely love this car. Its quite the upgrade from the sebring and mustang, about double the hp and torque! Car handles smooth and takes corners very well.
I ended up picking her up in Joplin, MO(about a 7 hour drive) after seeing the ad on the LS1 GTO forums. At first I wanted the 6 speed, but after driving a few I felt the manual was a bit sloppy, and I had better control and felt more comfortable in general with the auto. The former owner took very good care of this car, and it shows. It had some paint work done after a small incident involving spinning out into a highway median, but there was no damage to any panels on the car, just scuffed the paint. All the paintwork looks great and was done right! I haven't driven her alot yet, as there is still alot of salt on the roads still. I plan to drive this almost daily once it gets nicer out, and store her in the winter and drive my truck. Will probably wait to mod any more till she's paid off a little, and just drive her the way she is for now. Eventually I'm looking at the Procharged route.
So anyway, here's a couple of pics that the previous owner took, and a few I took when I got her home. Can't wait to start cruising the streets with this beast! I plan to drive her to MWM14, so that will be a nice first road trip!
