    Hopefully you can get the fueling issues squared away!
    No idea. It came with the Vector turbo kit. Search.
    Rest in Peace Charlie!

    Talked to a good friend in Wisconsin about buying my G8 and my extra LS engine.
    Rest in Peace Charlie!

    Default What did you do to your G8 today?

    Saturday, I cranked on the AC in the garage (95F outside) and set about bleeding my brakes. I put stainless lines on it a couple of months ago and life got in the way of bleeding them so there it sat! I used my Motive bleeder and it worked AWESOME! I've had it since 2009 and never used it. lol The fluid was pretty dark so I'm happy I did it.



    2009.5 MSM GXP 500ish N/A RWHP. Mods include but aren't limited to: Texas Speed 418 (6.8L) fully forged held together with ARP from top to bottom, PRC 255cc heads, Rick Crawford intake plenum, TB port, polish and tune, Roto-Fab 102mm CAI w/LS7 MAF, Kooks 1-7/8" headers wrapped with DEI, Corsa catless system, Circle D 3200 Stall, 3.45 final drive, BMR's complete street bushing kit and sway bars, Eibach Pro Kit, G-Force Axles, running on staggered VMR 710's with Bridgestone RE11 rubber. HSV triple gauge pack with Calais smokers kit mod, V6 tails, debadge/rebadge, V6 door handles, AU black door trim, Maverick Man under hood strut covers, & washer and bolt kit, fully corrected paint thanks to Adams Polishes and my hard work. Built with reliability in mind with some power for those times when you need to pass or go over a big hill. Just a poser, not a racer!
