yeah well this does make #4... but wasnt really going to wait around forever to sell the Galant. so i bought it anyway...

also photobucket took a shit, they want $40 a MONTH for hosting...lets see how imgur works...


couple pics:












http://imgur.com/a/pRTGK <~ the album.


its a 2008 Pontiac G8 GT
6.0L L76 (LS2 bottom, LS3 heads)
6L80E (yeah its an auto)
DOD is in the TRASH!
Comp cam... specs he sent me: 223/231 610/617 112
LS7 lifters
hardened push rods
Pacesetter long tube headers
X-pipe
no cats or resonators
flowmasters (going in garbage)
ported throttle body
cold air intake box
Yank SS 3600 stall
3.27 gears (stocks are 2.92)
100 shot nitrous plate kit

think that about somes it up? oh its got 91,xxx miles. i do have some plans, but really i do need to sell the Galant. it has the stock suspension on it still, i plan on some swaybars at the least and some bushings, might do some springs. i ordered a Magnaflow exhaust, as i cant stand this exhaust, i mean it sounds badass, but really its way the fuck too loud, drones, etc.

oh... here lets blow out your speakers:



he claims it made 440whp and like 470tq or some shit? yeah idk about that torque. plus the 100shot of nitrous. says it ran low 11s in socal on the bottle... google says she weighs in at hair under 4000lbs. et calculator i found says its possible of power is as claims... plan on checking both ;)  buddy just picked up a 17 ZL1 that i would like to race and dyno against. and another buddy says he wants to play, but wants a "handycap' as he "only has a V6"....its a GTR.

so far i have only done some small thing to clean her up. polished the headlights, repainted the brake calipers (green wasnt doing it for me, did some dark gray/cast iron color), painted the chrome kidney grill trims black... will be hopefully painting the door trims tomorrow.



for those that are counting:
G8 (daily)
Nova (toy)
Silverado (truck)
Galant (needs to leave)

SOLD THE GALANT....

shopping/ordering parts for G8 now... lol.  think i said i hate the exhaust thats on it? and i ordered a 2.5" maganflow off amazon for jew deals. hopefully get around to putting that on tomorrow before my neighbors kill me lol. or i start bleeding from my ears. its loud/drones.
ordered stereo stuff. got a couple speakers that are shot. went a little overboard i think, but i plan to have this for a long while, and drive it a lot (road trips).

still researching suspension/brakes i want to go with.... and fuckme, for the life of me i cant ever choose an aftermarket wheel to put on a car. maybe just some wheel spacers for all 4, and some 275s for the rears?


I really like these cars!

its awesome.

why not, how about an update?


painted the grill surrounds and emblem black. i hate chrome.



again, chrome shit gone. thats upper moldings and horizontal window ones too.



magnaflow 2.5" exhaust. MUCH more livable.


damn near Prius like gas mileage (verified with actual math)


couple of these where for sure making shit noises. and when pushing with light pressure all had crunchy resistance... junk. (x6 alpine type r's)


replacements.


after a trip to homedepot for some shelving board. i have amp rack...  :mexi:


anyway. been looking for wheels. im always super opinionated about wheels, probably why i end up with OE wheels most the time. but i have been looking at these...

Niche M131
19x8.5 et35 245-45-19
19x9.5 et35 275-35-19


oh, also did the front brakes. just some blank rotors, and Hawk pads.

The car looks so much better without the chrome on the front end.  Those 'type r's use to be high end back in the circuit city days  :mexi:

wow, your old...shit. i might be too. the owners manual for my Orion amp was copywrite 1999 i do believe lol.

i hate chrome. was kinda afraid it would look murdered out, but i think it looks good. something needs to happen with that front emblem. if you pull it there are holes left behind. think i can pull the rear without issue... just scrolling through the pics, should have painted the mufflers black, but kinda have to leave the tips.


wheels are back ordered. fuck. found retailer on ebay that says he has the rears in stock... just need to find someone with the 8.5's...

so looking for opinions... maybe im getting old? but im debating putting lowering springs on her.  the springs would be EIBACH's. they say like 1.2" lower or something. and probably replace the shocks with Koni yellows (adjustables). ok. that will probably happen either way.


oh. so got the car up on the rack at work. replaced 2 tires. ordering 2 more soon. i bought all seasons as these will be 'winter' wheels or whatever. unless i never buy aftermarket wheels... anyway. had a tech take a peak also. we found:
left front wheel is bent (ordered one off FB already)
rear shocks have a little bounce to them (didnt check fronts)
and i have 2 shit upper control arm bushings.

uca bushings are awesome because they bolt the arm on to the sub frame and lift it into the car. but i planned on doing subframe bushings also. so i need to drop it just low enough to slide those in. hopefully dont have to remove the hole damn thing.
oh, we where looking as i have a light vibration still front the front after the brakes, and rear end seems to do a little dance over bumps at 35+mph or so as it settles.


not sure how overboard i want to go? ***i dont want to ruin the ride quality or add noise.*** like i said, daily driver, want to drive across country.
my shopping cart has many items in it...

going to replace/buy:
front/rear sway bars (front will be fun to replace)
koni shocks
subframe bushings
uca bushings
front strut bushings/bearings

maybe im going overboard?
eibach springs $250
rear trailing arms (prevent wheel hop) $140
trailing arm bushings (same) $30
rear toe rods (stiffen up toe from settings wondering) $110
19" wheels....for vip status.... actually, ill probably need to lower it if i get wheels.  $800-1200
