  If you are not planning to run for a record you can run your Shell 92 in the gas class. Good luck. Read the rule book 50 times then do it again.  Vince

Dave Wolin ran a factory sponsored GTO and got some class records (as far as I understand it - thats what the stickers say on the car -  but you know how the manufacturers make up their own classes to suit their marketing strategy)

Anyway he ran the same car at the SandHills open road race -  a bunch of the silver state stuff as well as bigbend with the yellow goat.

Heres a link to photos and info.

Last I talked with Dave he was putting the GTO up for sale after this years (2007) SandHills race.  He is a nice guy and can give you ther details about what they did to prep the car -   I think it only went 152 or 156 at Bonneville -  but he ought to be a good source of information to you!

Adding the spoiler will kick you out of Production (and thru Gas) up to Gas Altered.  the C/Gas Altered record is 233+.  So, see Rule 2G for wheel information.  You have to build for the class record (or nearest class record) even for Time Only.  And I think welding the stock alloys isn't covered.

I have a 2004 and it's the only car I always look forward to driving.

And as JD says, good luck!

 Holden Monaro info from Wikipedia (not a bad write-up)...

Sorry Birdman, we're on a tangent to your questions. Despite religious leanings to the Ford way, national pride can't be ignored. Good luck with the build, and keep us informed, there's genuine interest down here.

Got my push rods, double roller timing chain, fuel pump, and oil pump today.....heads and cam are enroute.  Should get all in within 2 weeks and get a dyno tune....still debating about the nitrous.  Probably go N/A and give it shot this year knowing I won't hit 200mph with the 460 rwhp, but at least I can get the car up to Tech speed and learn the ropes a bit before trying in 09 with more hp.

One thing is once you get a speed and know your HP it will be easier to predict how much HP you will need to go faster.  At least you will know well enough to take an educated guess anyway,
