Long story short: decided to go from a three-car household down to two so as to put money aside for a larger home. Sold my wife's '12 Malibu and my '02 Camaro and picked up the '08 G8 you see here. For comparison sake, it had 82,5xx when I picked it up last week for $16,500. G88 #589 for those that care.
I'd like to add an intake, headers, and a tune, but my main priority is getting the AFM deleted (electronically for now). I honestly never paid much attention to the L76 engines, but I'm pleasantly surprised to have learned they have the L92 heads and LS3 intake.
I'd love to see this section get more action (and that is certainly a goal of mine as a mod), but in the mean time, is there a preference between G8Board and Grrrr8? Any nuances or whatnot that you'd suggest I pay attention to with the car would be helpful as well.
I'll be updating this thread as time progresses just as I did with my Camaro thread: 2002 Camaro SS #7146 build thread
Anyone who followed my Camaro build thread knows I document everything in detail. This includes listing anything that is not as it came from GM. Even things as insignificant as wipers will be listed if they are not GM/ACDelco replacements.
Feel free to comment about anything!
