An 04 gto can usually hit a quarter in around 13.3 with an average driver. High 12s with the driver mod.

average drivers are getting mid-low 13's, great drivers are getting high 12's. Depending on how well your car is prepped what tires your using, track temperatures, your driving ability...the factors go on and on, ultimately you gotto take it there to find out!

I have a modded '04 GTO A4. A stock '04 GTO A4 will run low 14s/high 13's on average. Heat soak and torque management are big reasons why people struggle to get out of the 14's in them. Just a tune wakes them up big time. I dropped a few tenths and gained a few mph just off a (custom) Predator Tune.

I'm pretty sure "nobody" with a stock 2004 a4 has broken into the 12's

A4 LS1 GTO's aren't that fast compared to the others. Best I've seen was 13.4. 13.6 on up is probably closer to average.

M6 LS1 GTO's run better :)

New driver stock A4 04 will be high 13's - low 14s. ...you can count on that. Now as for the low 13 sec's that stock 04s have gotten to date ... there's a combination of reasons for those low stock times. These are really cold temperatures with a very negative DA, running at a track like ATCO (at about sea level), and major weight deduction (pulling out back and passenger seats + other typical things). That being said, under "normal" conditions at tracks across the country mid 13s would be a reasonable goal.

Theres no way a 2004 gto with an ls1 an auto can get mid to low 13's. I have an ls1 A4 camaro and its a mid 13 car with intake and exhaust, a heavier gto with more power will not beat that time. High 13's maybe a 13.6 with an auto ls1 gto is possible.

Times and minimal mods in signature. Maybe better this year as the times are traction limited and I am replacing the tires with some drag radials and cool spring air. Mid 13.5's are very doable and with essentially just a Diablo tune and air intake mods I am very happy. Yes I know I have a catback, it did NOTHING for performance. The best money I spent was the $167 shipped I paid for the DiabloSport on eBay and then the customized tune was free. Tweaked the tune with some help of the guys on LS1GTO.com and I have proved to myself on two separate occasions that the tune and accompanying better A4 shifting made a 4-6 mph and .4-.6 E.T. difference.

Our cars are tuned like crap from the factory, so spend the money like I did or if you don't want to do it yourself pay for a dynotune for probably even better increases. My A4 car is a different car with the tune.

carefull what you say

Theres no way a ....

just cause you can't do it, dosn't mean someone else can't
you never know....


I've been told "theres no way..." :
- a stock gto clutch will hold 500hp (I've got 44K miles on mine, over 500rwhp/600rwtq)
- a M6 GTO will cut under 2.0 60' with stock tires (I cut 1.86 a few times)
- a M6 GTO will cut under 1.8x 60' with Radial tires (I cut a 1.55 60' and a bunch of 4.6' 60' times with mine on M/T DR's)


I have an ls1 A4 camaro and its a mid 13 car with intake and exhaust, a heavier gto with more power will not beat that time.


my gto is heavier and has more power, :devil:
I ran 13.2 bone stock
and my car is still heavier, and still has more power
and i run mid 11's :secret2:

:werd:

I was told when I bought mine that it wouldn't even get out of the 14's. Very first pass with a few hundred miles on the clock was a 13.6 and whittled that down to a 13.2. Then mods started and low 12's with a car that sounded completely stock that everybody thought I had a bottle hidden somewhere.

It can and has been done...

Theres a small thread right now over on LS1go that the quickest bone stock GTO went a 12.76 or something. Needless to say I raised the bullshit flag. The quickest bone stoc fbody I think was a little slower then that and come on the Fbody has more power from the live axle and weighs ALOT less.

fully stock off the lot 13.3 @ 107


an 06 gto can get into the twelves stock... most of the fbodys do all thier free mods first...lol i was pulling enough mph to blow 12's stock... that was with a 2.2 60ft on street tires... at sar.

at hrp with minor weight reduction and some drag radials it would have busted a 12.9 stock

04-07-2008, 11:31 AM
I've been running my GTO at the track for almost 3yrs now and can say on a cold day at Atco, it will run 12's. An automatic will not run 12's stock since it can't get the RPM's high enough on launch. Low 13's is possible for an A4 car but will need a good street tire. BFG KDWS are not optimal for drag racing but the KDW's will do better.

I only posted my 13.02 run since a lot of people complain about Atco as a cheater track. Can we help it that NJ has great air! I ran a 12.73@108 last Nov/Dec (can't remember exactly). The 13.02 I ran only did a 1.95 60 ft, but with the 12.73 I had a 1.81 60 ft. The trap speed was the same for both runs. I also ran a 12.76. 12.79, 12.85 that day.

The car was stock bit took out the D/S headlight (good for .15/1.5 MPH) and took out the spare tires/jack. The car does have Toyo T1-R tires which hooked great!

During the hot months, the car runs 13.50's-13.70's. Just need to keep the car cool!

I have an '05 GTO M6 (12.89)@ 109 MPH bone stock, built 3/2005, purchased 7/2005. 28,000 miles on the clock today, bone stock to the paper filter. I am in North LA county, CA. What is so hard to believe? I also own an '04 Cobra that is bone stock as well.

I dunno where all these people are getting these bone stock times from but low 13's high twelves isnt happening with a stock LS1 Gaot. I think the LS2 goats can probably pull off a low 13 high twelve with a good driver in good air and hooking on good streeet tires. As we all know the GTOs are heavy and just dont run what they were expected too... but i know my 02 camaro with slp lid and stock 3.23s out back will outrun any stock 6.0 or 5.7 GTO. i have did it to 5 or 6 now... so come on guys... high twelves... think logically about it for a second...

I'm talking paper filter stock.

I think some other people don't mention their drag radials or their intakes. "stock" has a different definition with different people

Also, some of those people with those times are at some of the fastest tracks in the US...where as a lot of us don't live close to tracks like that and have slower times.

Those 13.0s are with GREAT drivers at GREAT tracks.

high 13s are common place. VERY common place.
Mid 13s are common ground for both.
Low 13s are common place for 05-06 GTOs.

All being stock of course, down to the tires.

Hell ive seen a buddy of mine run a 13.1 with after having his goat for 2 days, and by no means is he a great driver. Anything is possible in racing, hell i could take my gto down the track to a 16.0 and a ls1 t/a could run a 13.8, does that make the t/a a faster car...hell no, but it makes him a faster driver.

Man aint that the truth. When my car was still fairly new I wentto the track and ran it as soon as I got there and it went 13.7 @ 104 mph with a 2.2 60', had some bald asss street tires on it.

Let it cool off for over and hour and ran it again to a 13.4 @ 107 mph with the same 60'.

I now have new tires and will be going back soon.

Wow, people really get there panties in a bunch to see a 3800lb car run a good time. FWIW i have not seen a ls2 gto not run a low 13, and havent seen any ls1's run a 14. Hell ive seen a buddy of mine run a 13.1 with after having his goat for 2 days, and by no means is he a great driver. Anything is possible in racing, hell i could take my gto down the track to a 16.0 and a ls1 t/a could run a 13.8, does that make the t/a a faster car...hell no, but it makes him a faster driver.

I agree...

With my 04 M6, Bone Stock I ran a 13.247 @ 105.7 with a 1.8 60'...... on stock KDW's, main prob with these cars getting good times is traction and heat soak.... Traction more so in the M6, and Heat soak in the A4..... Good driver in a M6 can run low 13's all day.... A4's are dummie proof for the most part, your looking at mid 13's 14 flat without the heat soak factor.... but i also put down 326 RWHP / 338 RWTQ on Modern Muscls Dyno Jet Bone Stock....... i currently put down 361 RWHP / 359 RWTQ

Guys I agree about the variations in different tracks around the country. Track prep is just as crucial as weather/temp when trying to get a good time on stock radials. For instance my friend has and 06 gto a4 like me and ran a 14.0 at 99 in July at IRP (indy). It was 90deg and no traction in first. The same night I ran a 13.9 at 102 powershifting my TA with a 2.3 60 time. Anyway my friend with the Goat happened to run a 13.3 @ 105mph later in the year at the Muncie dragstrip off of US 41 with no new mods. I on the other hand run dead even with several high 12 sec cars on the street. I think officials at a lot of these dragstrips don't prep the tracks well on street drag events so people don't hook up and start breaking crap. Anyway, I believe any year gto with any tranny is capable of low 13's, but auto 04's will need low temp and killer traction. This is of course coming from someone who mostly saw low 14's high 13's from all year goats and f-bodys in the summer at IRP. FYI i'm planning on running my stock 06 at the fontana dragway in the next month. I'll post a result then.

Apparently, Car and Driver ran a 12.8 at 110 with an 05 GTO, if they can do it, we should be able to.

I was looking at these espesially the 04 gtos because the prices are coming down but i would hope they would be a little faster.....my all steel 55 chevy bel air went 13.40 with a stock 5.3 out of a truck and a carb bigger car less cubes no cam what happened to progress how come all that gm comes out with is so heavy!!! can the corvette engineers please work their magic on the rest of the fleet?

The difference in the WHOLE CAR between an old Bel Aire and the goat is light years and don't forget 25-30 MPG . What did that pig of a Chevy get? The goat is primarily a GT car that happens to run a pretty quick 1/4. You're also comparing a modded car to a stock one. It takes very little to put a LS1 goat into the mid to upper 12s and ride in comfort. An independent suspension car is a different animal and these guys that are getting 14s haven't gotten the knack. Our local track at 925 feet had many '04 in the mid to low 13s stock with 2,000+ DAs.

i ran a 13.6 @ 105 fresh off the trailer then it kept getting slower and now i know why due to heat soak. I got the car tuned and i know it should go 12's

So a stock Camaro/Firebird LS1 can get into the 12's bone stock (very rare of course_ but a stock GTO with the LS1 can't get into the 12's? Same engine...

That is correct. Weight difference, IRS, etc is the reason. A stock GTO is fairly rare and is a beautifully appointed car that rides in comfort and a Camaro/Firebird LS1 sounds like a can of loose bolts and the t-tops leak. If someone wanted the fastest stock car they wouldn't pick either one.


BTW I had t-top leaking 2 fBods before the GTO. . .

My Camaro is my first F-body, and while I have read and heard several accounts that these cars do leak through the T-tops, mine is 10 years old with almost 70,000 miles, T-tops are solid, don't leak at all.

Now on the other side, the weather strip on the driver's side is wearing out, and when the rain is very very heavy, I get about one rain drop in per minute, very minor though, barely worth mentioning.

Yeah, the F-bodies do ride pretty rough, I bet the GTO is a much more refined car. Can't get over how ugly they are though, I don't care how fast it is, it's a hideous car and looks like a cross-breed between a Neon and something else, hideous in my opinion.

The Camaro is commonly referred to as a boy racer car, so is the Vette.
