Classic Car Restoration - 2006 Pontiac GTO
Sterling, VA 2006 Pontiac GTO Restoration
This 2006 Pontiac GTO is already a very powerful production vehicle without modification. The GTO itself is actually a re-branding of the Holden Monero from General Motors Holden in Australia.
This GTO was recently purchased and already heavily modified from its previous owner and had a drive line vibration at speed. We replaced the tires with ultra performance, balanced the suspension using scales, and realigned the steering. The differential rebuilt with a higher ratio and limited slip functionality, complete with high performance CV axles. Front brakes were replaced with a performance set up, and a short shifter was installed.
RELIABLE, FAST, INEXPENSIVE CLASSIC CAR RESTORATION
After some time, the GTO returned with a spun connecting rod bearing. The engine was previously upgraded with a cam and upgraded cylinder heads, however the block was never rebuilt. The engine was pulled to be rebuilt for even more power. The LS2 6.0 L engine will be stroked out to 6.8 L with all internals specifically picked to be bulletproof, and then tuned for as much power that the engine could possibly output.
