Default Bro'* GTO

My brother recently purchased a 2006 GTO. It has the LS2 (Vette motor) that makes 400HP.

Here'* a shot of it next to my mom'* new GP GXP. My family has been getting a lot of new cars lately as you can see.



This car is absolutely brutal. Never in my life have I driven anything so sweet sounding and downright fierce. The LS2 gives you goosebumps when you rev the engine up. The exhaust sounds amazing.

My bro got a special apperance package which gives a different front and rear bumper, rocker panels, exhaust tips, and grilles (the dealer didn't put on the grilles by accident so those are the stock ones for now).

The GTO is just plain fast. I had a little fun with it today and lets just say ... I was holding on to the steering wheel pretty hard. Enough said.

I always thought the L67 motors made a lot of torque. They do, but the LS2 is a completely different beast. What a motor...

I thought I'd share the good news.

Did you and your bro properly break in the motor before you went banazi on it? Because if it'* properly broken into, it'll last a lot of brutal abuse.

If they did you'd still have to pay for the car. My bro is paying for everything.

I will get em all together eventually. His new grille won't get on until next week and I'll be back at school by then. Hopefully when I come back in April it will be nice and we will get all the cars washed up for a nice photoshoot.

Yea, we've broken it in quite nicely.

I'm gonna get a video later of it revving up. It sounds unreal.
