I just got back home from a weekend in Carlisle PA. It was NicoFest and the import car show along with autocross and drifting. We had en eventful trip down with a breakdown, nothing major, just a tensioner pulley, but it was a pain.
A friend just got his GTO ready for the season and then promptly lost his mind and let me drive it.:laugh: It made mid 500hp last year with the smaller supercharger, so he was thinkin it was a bit over 600 with some tuning and a new blower. it got 647whp on the mobile dyno:cheerleader:

We did have to wait awhile for the dyno, and just as we thought we were up, a blown SRT-8 Charger cut ahead of us. He got up and beat the weekend record by 130hp, he was pretty happy with himself, until our car went up and beat him by 10hp and then put another 130hp on top of that. It was absolutely hilarious!! :rofl:

Pics of the show and the GTO, and Im sure I dont have to tell you guys, but that thing was a BLAST to drive. The heads had been "touched" as my buddy would tell people, cam, meth injection, headers some stuff I dont recall and alot of fine tuning. It was pretty docile and decently mannered if I stayed out of the loud pedal, but give it some gas and boy did she go!! If I were on a 600, Id be worried about it. Id also like to apologize to the folks at the hotel that i woke up last night, the parking lot seemed to be missing a nice set of 11's, so we gave it a set:laugh:

I also spyed a C7 Vette in a hauler as we were leaving, cant be many of those around yet.


Pics cause it all happened.

thats quite impressive.

I was hopn they were gonna continue to make the GTO and just revamp it a little. it wasnt the most exciting car to look at but it had that 6.0 and with a blower it makes good power. which blower does he have?

thats still a handful on the street if ur not running some DR's. my Turbo Buick made more then that and was back halfed with a 325/50 and it would melt the tires lol but the blower is more linear and therefore sometimes better on the street.

what tranny is he running? and that C7 is a blowjob on wheels.... I wonder if there is gonna be some crazy new ZR1 out now makn like 800 hp or something or maybe a 1000 hp with twin turbos.

I really like the Charger's. what year was that SRT8? their heavy ass cars tho. their no match for the vette or the even the new mustang with them tvs blowers.

I wanna say the charger was an 08, normally Im a fan of em too, butin this case, NOPE! :laugh: Definitely agree, doesnt look like much, but this one made up for it. Ill have to check on the blower and trans, it was a cyntrifical unit, If i had more than 10hrs of sleep, I bet Id rememeber :banghead: Im gonna say its the stock auto trans, least parts of it, hes got a 4k stall converter and the 1st-2nd hits hard. On the way down he was working on his tune a bit, he plugged in the laptop and started changing things on me, I was just the steering and brakes for couple miles. Wonder who that speeding ticket would get given too :rofl:
