UPDATE 07/04/08 here are three video's of it. First is with the cam kit and maggie 112. The second is the new built forged 402 with 122 maggie, at idle and a few revs. The third is the new 402 with 122 on the dyno.

UPDATE 07/01/08 New dyno numbers 594 / 674 the cam is doing all it can, but the 402 cubes want more, new cam in the near future.

I have been kicking around the idea of replacing my 1998 Infiniti Q45t. Started looking at the GTO's and found a 2005 with only 3467 miles on it. It has the 6 spd and 18" wheels. It's Torrid red with black interior. I bought it!

The car is located at a dealership in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. So I will book a flight with Southwest, and fly down on the 21st to pick it up and cruise back home.

Looking forward to the road trip!

Congrats, that's a SICK car :thumbup:.

What dealership is it?

Bought off EBAY from Mitchell Motors

This is the third car I have bought off Ebay. First was the 98 Q from a dealer in Scottsdale, AZ. Then a 67 Camaro from a guy in N.C. And now the GTO. Really looking forward to the drive home.

Congrats on your badass new engine. ;) :thumbup:

Can't say the same for the special-ed inspired styling though. God, those things are silly-looking. :lol:

Congrats on the new car. I actually live right around Ft. Lauderdale so I could've given it a little test drive for you ;) but that looks like a great car. I'm glad you got the black interior instead of the red, because I hate the red. And I love the style of the car, others don't seem to like it much but I think it looks great

Sweet. Are you keeping it stock, or doing any mods to it?

I would buy an HID kit, and install it at the dealership before i drive home :cool:
