66 GTO - 6.2 Liter L92, Driven-1, Air Ride Street Challenge Project
Can you imagine a 1966 GTO loaded with a General Motors L92 6.2Liter Engine putting out 450 horsepower and 469 ft/lbs torque? Can you imagine backing up that engine with a modified 4L65e with a Gear Vendors Overdrive unit, effectively making the 4 speed automatic an 8 speed automatic transmission? Wow!
"We're all about Transformation!"
Add to the package an Air Ride Technologies Street Challenge air suspension system for an ultimate ride and 1G cornering abilities. (Not to mention lowering the whole car into the weeds with a flip of a switch) Then adding custom tuned stainless steel exhaust system, huge disk brakes, along with big wheels and enough sticky rubber to keep this GTO glued to the asphalt in every corner.
It's a transformation! Re-built from the inside out to become an outstanding pro-touring '66 GTO* with power and style to spare.
||The idea behind a pro touring is to re-engineer almost every aspect of the vehicle to do everything it normally would do, except do it 110% better than as it was originally designed! A Pro-Touring car is modified not only to increase horsepower but to stop quick and corner fast. And best of all you actually DRIVE it on the highway!
We invite you to join us as this '66 GTO is transformed from and old life, to a new life. It's a "...new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."
