if you read the ss specs its awfully darn close at 362 horses. and if i remember right, the gto had basically the same drivetrain and wasn't it up to 400 horses in its final year?

The biggest downfall GM had with the GTO when they brought it over from Aussy was lack of advertising. Lets hope GM dosn't make the same mistake again with what seems like another good performer.
