Shoot, if I had a fresh 496 in my car, I'd be out abusing it regularly. Nothing like a good big block. Now me, I've got a fresh 355 Vortec head, ZZ4 roller motor in my car that MIGHT have 3 hours run time on it. It's not even broke in yet. I'm having some carb problems with it and I stumbled into this 2004 GTO/6 speed for CHEAP. Having some mad money and looking to see if I can climb into the 21st century, off I go.
