You have two beautiful cars.

I love the hood. It'd look a little better if it had more lines, but it looks great now.

Lol, I love the backwards roof scoop. It actually goes really well with the rest of the GTO's styling though, so I can't argue or make fun of it.

i prefer your GTO stock, honestly. i rarely like black rims, and i think the hood scoop looks goofy as well i think. but if you like it, fair enough :p

Does that C6 completely obliterate the Goat performance-wise? I am looking for a C6 myself.

its not backwards. its called cowl induction. the increased air pressure just in front of the windshield will help force air into the engine. check out the cowl induction on the late 60s, early 70s gm muscle cars.

I wish I could have kept my GTO as a second car. Maybe I can pick a used one up.

They are cheap used. I know around here the 2004/2005 are 15-17k

figured as much, but thought the thread could use a little content for the less well informed

Not obliterate, but it is faster and better in handling. The GTO is going to get modded as far as I can go NA, so it will be the faster one... until I start modding the C6.

So what's going on between the bottom of that scoop and your throttle body? Anything or is it just bling?

The buyout on the lease of my 6sp 04 was $15k. I would bet that in a year, I could find an '04 for close to $10k with around 60k miles.

It's a fully functional air intake. No bling here.

It would run out the back and onto the engine. Ha! I suppose I could drill a hole at the bottom and run tubing away from the engine. It's never been in the rain anyway, so I'm going to keep it the way it is. I didn't put the washer nozzels back on (cleaner look) and I've been thinking about removing the wiper blades completly. The badges are staying. I paid $200 for the front and back arrowheads.
