A guy I work with had one of those, a 2004, he supercharged it, and was putting 500hp to the road. No traction. And nothing he could do about it. Couldn't add wider tires, sad when I can put 255s on my car, but he couldn't fit anything larger then 245s

I've heard they have traction problems. Most of them I see at the track chirp the tires in every gear.

He should have done more research then...lots of guys running 275'* on there GTO'*... some with just rolling the fender lip even I think...just takes some slight modifications


But ya...with 500 to the road...traction is gonna be hard to find with just about any tire lol

Some people don't listen. I suggest rolling the fender and changing the off set of the wheel. He insisted it can't be done. He then went to a smaller pulley on the SC after I told him not to.

I would love a GTO also. Pretty sweet cars, any year, in my opinion.
