No, it has the LS1 in it with 350 hp, 365 lb/ft tq...roughly 300 rwhp is why they dyno stock...again that'* stock though..hehe
With the the cam, heads, intake and exhaust I have researched and found the combination on the car is good for around 380-400 RWHP with a good dyno tune..(we shall see once we get her, since the current owner says he doesn't have any dyno numbers for it)
Considering my Bonne would put down roughly 160 hp at the front wheels lol, I very much agree that once I go WOT in the GTO, I will be thinking, "What Bonne?"

Haha, I will see what I can do for ya there, I am sure you would take "real good care of her" lol.
The car is in Slippery Rock, PA and I will be flying into Pittsburgh on the 27th most likely..haven't got the plane ticket yet, as I am still waiting on finishing up the financing Monday or Tuesday so I have some extra cash to purchase her since I haven't sold my Bonne yet...after I have that I will be booking my flight.
Last night I was going back and forth trying to figure out if i was doing the right thing giving up a perfect car that looks great, drives great and that I actually love, and while the GTO might not be the most economical car or as great of a daily driver as the bonneville..who cares lol I have wanted a GTO since back in 2005, and I am in a position where I can finally get one so damnit I am going to get one!
