It says GTO, but the Monaro was sold as the "Lumina" in the Middle East. This car is a fucking monster.

It probably costs more to repair a GTR tranny than to buy a supercharged GTO...

16-18k for a low mile GTO
6200 for the magnacharger kit and 500 for them to install it for you.

On the LS2, expect close to 500whp.

The LSx engine won't even be near the top of it's limit yet.  Besides, not everyone likes your choice in cars.

Also, when talking about these things please inform us of the year you are talking about.

THAT'S what i saw at the Milford Proving Grounds!

I was doing lettering on one of their security trucks and saw something just beyond the area I was allowed to drive in, looked like a GTO with a Chevy badge... couldn't figure out wtf it was, i thought it was going to be the next Chevelle or something.

Depends on which LSx it is and whether its a stock block with stock internals or not.....

And any S13-S14 would, with an SR swap would qualify..

Actually in this case I think they're referring to the GM LSX racing engines, as opposed to using X as a variable for whichever LS engine it happens to be.
