Hello everyone im new to modifying cars and im really happy I decided to go with a g8 gt I dropped the car in the shop and got it back with 564 rwhp witha 100 shot of nitrous but nothing done to the suspension or drivetrain. What should I do next so the car can be a deppendable car but fast at the track

Do you have a stall converter? If not stall and transcooler will help alot. You should also get a 2010 Camaro differential to handle that amount of power.

The Camaro diff should handle the power fine. It replaces the entire housing and everything. It is a direct bolt-in. I just put one in my car a few weeks ago.

Decided to go with a 9in with g force performance axles but its going ti be about 3 months before I can afford to buy it and install it, ive learned really fast that modding a car is like getting tattos, you always want more and pay a hefty price for them

where would you buy a camaro rear end?

You can get them used from some junkyards or on the Camaro5 forum. Sometimes they come up for sale on ebay, the G8 forums,etc. Or you can buy them new from Pace chevrolet for around $1100
