G8 GXP Twin Turbo

I haven't been on the board much because I was waiting to get my G8, but since I took delivery on March 21st it has been crazy. This weekend I am in Ohio, at Intense having the car dyno, tune and installing the APS Twin Turbo Kit.

I got a 2009 GXP fully loaded (not like there are a lot of options) in six speed automatic.

I will try to get pics along the way.

Very nice car Robert.

We'll be slightly limited by your stock exhaust system, so regardless of what we end up with later this week, you'll probably see another ~ 50 horsepower once you upgrade the exhaust system.

Baseline dyno runs were completed last night.

The car was disassembled this morning and kit installation is underway.
