Better cooling better overclock. (Owns a Gt wants a ultra) I get 430/1190 with my Gt with a ultra i might get in the 50's and above 1.2!

Jesus. 430/1190 is a HUGE OC for a GT. Is that water cooling?

Because some people want to buy an Ultra and who are we to tell people how to spend their money?

OT - Gorion, I love your "rig." I had a chance to take a GTO and drive it to and around Road America up in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. What an amazing car, I loved every day I had it (had to give it back to GM after a week).

Amen to that. I loved the smug grins I would give to ricers while at stoplights. God I miss that car. :drooling:

OT - Yes, the GTO's are great cars!!

I may eventually sell my 99 Z28 for one, especially for the upcoming 400 hp LS2 version (if the rumors are true)! bright blue and blue interior please.. :D

Haven't heard about LS2. Last thing I read this is a 3 year production car and 18,000 per year, so get em while they last. Yes the blue on blue is beautiful (not sure about the lighter blue havent seen it) Thats what I picked up. Although the purple is sweet as well.

:drooling: You got the car that I wanted.. That car is just about as fast as my f-body.. but its 1000000x more refined and comfortable.. :)


Yea, thats the rumor, that GM may drop in the new 400 hp LS2 engine...


Holden Australia is now in charge of designing the GM global RWD platform now.. We'll probably see an all new model of the GTO afterwards... at least in Australia, and probably here too in the US... but who knows..

Heh nice engine, I just dont like the looks of the GTO as it looks more or less like the family sedan with 2 doors. Flame away if you must. I dun care. Its an ugly car.

However, I will say that I DO own a 2000 WS6 ram air trans am...metallic blue
Now that is an awesome car. Pffffft on the GTO....my 0-60 times are faster then the 5.3 listed for the GTO earlier in the thread. Mine is 0-60 in 5.0 secs and the car has not been modified.

If I wanted the 50 ponies there are plenty of aftermarket toys for this thing. Right now I'm grinning ear to ear :D

Gorion is right. The GT only goes to 10 but the Ultra goes to 11, incase you want that extra, you know, ummph.

I did the firebird. It had electrical problems left and right. I dumped it after a year. The firebird looked better on the outside, but this car is way more comfortable and as you noted just about as fast. Personally I like thwe way it looks (cops don't follow me near as much as they did in my fbird and my vettes) there is something to be said for anonymity.

Why buy an Ultra over a GT? Simple actually, it's faster, period :)

The question is, is the increased speed worth the extra money?

Worth the Money is relative. Depends on if you can afford to blow the extra hundy. If you have to eat ramen every day for the next 2 weeks I would say probably not. But if your gonna have ribsteaks anyway then why not ;)
