  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

2004 GTO 1/4 mile guesses?

Recommended Posts

Just curious what you guys think this thing might run. Its a bone stock ls1 auto car. I have ran it before, it went 13.8 @ 101, BUT it was made on drag radials that were a good bit taller than stock and rubbed big time on the metal lip of the fender, destroying the radials after one pass (you could feel the car pulling to the right, so it had some drag to it)

Also latee found out the MAF was dirty causing the car to run lean and knock after 4200 rpm. Picked up 15 whp after correcting the issue.

Any guesses?

I'd guess if everything runs as it should and you have no real performance mods to the car, then I'd say you could run a 13.3 at ~106 MPH as is.

my guess would be 13.5 and 101 mph

with the taller drag radial you change your aspect ratio which would slow ya down but, in long run help out. But, with the proper size ratio drag radial you should be able to exceed 110mph around 13.1. I have a calculator for that I'll find and post for you.
