So what did Santa Claus bring you for Christmas?

Not really Santa, but my wife got me a great car cover so the G8 can sit nice and warm in the garage all winter.
Told me she just didn't understand cams and things, and was afraid of buying the wrong thing...
Merry Christmas!

things are not as they appear to be.........

2009.5 LiquidRed/OnyxRed, Premium Package
Surprise Package

Don't get too excited, it sounds like a trap. LOL

My G8 got a beater to keep some miles off of it.

My wife let me drive out to a muffler shop (Mr. Muffler in Romeo, thanks for the suggestion Janet/Jerry) and get the Corsa mid-section put on Christine. I would have put it on myself but the Corsa system is a lot of overlapping pipes and clamps vs. bolts.

I've tried to explain to the wife she's got a very unique system now with the Kooks 1 7/8" Mids, Corsa mid-section into Solo axle backs but she doesn't quiet get it. The sound is very nice though I'll try to get some video up in the next day or so for people to hear.

2009 MSM G8 GT - Christine

Go:MJD Performance Tune, Kook's LTs 1 7/8", Chrome TVS2300, Little Lunati cam, etc, etc, etc...
