    I have had very good luck avoiding tickets while driving my GTO! The exhaust isn't as mean as yours, but pretty good for a factory stock 2006.

    When the GTOs first came out they were absolute sleepers. Then word got out pretty quick. I remember the first one I ever saw was a white 04 that passed me on entrance to the feeder in my WRX. At first I thought it was a hopped up Chevy lumina then I saw the Pontiac badge and realized it was "that" car. It was one of the first cars that sounded fast right out of the box. Great stock exhaust on that thing.

    Yeah, the exhaust on the G8 was much more tame, almost too tame, by comparison. The GTO was so easy to launch (A4), it was almost begging you to street race lol.

    BUT, they are fun to drive and look fast, even sitting still. Its not about whether you're speeding, its about the "perception" of speed.

    The '04 is the 5.7L LS1 and the 05-06 is the 6.0L LS2. Yes there is a big difference. I owned both.
