Limit Pushing - Turbo LS2 GTO 0-60 Test
Just throwing up one last video before another two week hiatus.
This one definitely took the 0-60 record. The long awaited turbo LS2 GTO is here...and holy hell does it
deliver. Thanks to a whole lot of help from Carl H at BlackBox Tuning.
The Pontiac GTO:
The Pontiac GTO was built by Pontiac Division of General Motors in the
United States from 1964 to 1974, and by GM subsidiary Holden in Australia
from 2004 to 2006 as the Holden Monaro. It is considered to be one of the
most innovative classic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The GTO came at
a time when General Motors had banned the divisions from involvement in
auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's marketing was heavily based on
performance. This change in GM's policy forced Pontiac to turn its
attention to street performance.
The GTO was born from a redesign of the Tempest which was to be called the
"Super Tempest" with the larger 6.4 L Pontiac V8 engine from the full-sized
Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville in place of the standard 5.3 L Tempest V8.
The big-engine Tempest was badged the GTO for "Gran Turismo Omologato"
after the Ferrari 250 GTO. The GTO escaped the violation of GM policy by
becoming an option package for the Pontiac Tempest LeMans. The GTO package
had sold 10,000 units before the beginning of 1964 followed by total sales
of 32,450 GTOs. 75,342 were sold by 1965. This optional $ 296 package
included a 6.4 L V8 that produced 348 hp with a single Carter AFB
four-barrel carburetor and dual Exhaust, chromed valve covers and air cleaner, 7
blade clutch fan, a floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission with
Hurst shifter, stiffer springs, larger diameter front sway bar, wider
wheels with 7.50 x 14 redline tires, hood scoops, and GTO badges. The
original GTO's was clocked about 5.6 seconds for the 0--60 test and a
standing quarter mile time of 14.8 seconds.
As time went on, sales increased to almost 100,000 GTOs a year. Pontiac
pushed for the GTO to be called the "GTO Tiger" in advertising, but it
eventually became known in the youth market as the "Goat." The late 60's
saw the creation of the ram air engines and the birth of the Judge. Power
increased over the 60's from 348 hp to 375 hp in the best ram air
applications. The best equipped GTOs could get from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds
and perform a standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds.
As the 70's rolled in, sales of the GTO plummeted. By 1973 GTO sales were
down to 4,806 cars and the energy crisis was beginning to emerge. In 1974
Pontiac moved the GTO option to the compact Pontiac Ventura, also known as
the Chevrolet Nova. This was done in an effort to become part of the
compact muscle market which already included the Plymouth Duster 360, Ford
Maverick Grabber and AMC Hornet X. The 1974 GTO was tested a with the
four-speed transmission and achieved a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds and a
quarter mile at 15.72 seconds. Sales improved in 74 to over 7,000 cars, but
1974 would be the last model year for the original GTO.
In 1999, the Detroit Auto Show beheld a GTO concept car. The 1999 concept
was never produced but in 2004 Pontiac re-launched the GTO under the
Holden Monoro platform. The new GTO was equipped with the Corvette's 350 hp
LS1 engine in 2004 and the 400 hp LS2 engine for 2005 and 2006 with a
choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The GTO was
sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Monaro and in the Middle East as a Chevrolet
Lumina SS. The new GTO was never as popular in the U.S. due to the styling
which was obviously not aimed towards GTO heritage or the car's performance
(even with GM's frantic decision to add sporty hood scoops), and GM's
failure to use a traditional American built car. The 2005 and 2006 models
were virtually the same mechanically. Both made good use of the 400 hp LS2
engine and could go from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and could execute a standing
quarter mile in 13 seconds. The 2006 model drew the GTO to a close once
again with the end of GM's 3 year GTO revival plan.

2005 Twin Turbo GTO w/Lingenfelter Launch Controller
Here's a quick video of me testing out my Lingenfelter LC-001 launch
controller. The controller is set to reduce spark at 2,000 RPM currently,
just for testing purposes. Should help with consistant launches at the
track here once I get everything buttoned up and get the car tuned.
