FeynCalc does not deal with explicit Lorentz indices. In fact,
LorentzIndex[0], LorentzIndex[1], ... get replaced with
ExplicitLorentzIndex[0], ExplicitLorentzIndex[1], ... immediately.

DiracSimplify[GA[ExplicitLorentzIndex[0],ExplicitLorentzIndex[0]] should
then not return 4. It should be left unevaluated. This should be fixed.
I will look at it. Thanks for reporting it.

If you need to work with explicit Lorentz indices, you are more than
welcome to contribute code to facilitate this.

Cheers, Frederik
