Default G8 Workshop at Redline Motorsports

I know we're all always talking about a nice meet besides the G8 Extravaganza but it's hard to find time with work, personal commitments, distance, etc. so I just want to put this out there. Redline Motorsports in Pompano Beach has offered to conduct a G8 workshop at his beautiful shop. This would also be catered by him at his expense. He would go over tech stuff related to our cars, use his dyno and lifts and just have full access to a world class shop where we can all discuss our G8's, share technical knowledge and of course, see what Redline is all about and what it can do. His amazing HTR-850's would be on display for us to see as well. This should be easy to arrange and he said he can get it set up with a minimum of 8 G8 owners but obviously the more the merrier. He can do it on a Saturday or Sunday when we would have his huge shop to ourselves. I'm thinking a weekend in November. Who's down? Let's set this up!

Here is their website:

I'm in as well, just need a date. I think it'd be neat to see the differences first hand between the G8 and the Caprice (powertrain, suspension, L76 v. L77). Plus I'd definitely want to try a Dyno pull. So far my car is essentially bone-cop stock except for a Roto-Fab and some appearance stuff.

Hey Eric. The date is set for November 17th, 10AM. Sorry but it's not a "dyno day". It will be an opportunity to see one of if not the best LSx shop is SoFla and have it opened only for us. We will be able to hear from one of the best in the business and ask all the questions we want. It will also be a great setting to meet a bunch of other G8 owners so in a way it's also a G8 meet. Even GTO guys are coming. The shop will even provide food so it's an all around great event.

No probs, I still plan on coming. You said "use his dyno" in the first message so I took that to mean there would be pulls. Sorry for the confusion.

Update:

So far 14 G8ters confirmed "going" on the Florida G8 Car Club FB group and another 8 or 9 GTO's say they're coming too. Looks like it'll be a good turnout.

Just got home from work. See everyone in a few hours.

Julio, I'll be up at 730 if you want to swing by my house and detail the car. I sent you a text with the address. I have everything you will need.

Back from Redline, had a good time, learned a lot and enjoyed meeting a good bunch of SFL folks. Thanks to Howard & his staff for allowing access to his very well-equipped shop and taking the time to get everyone together, and also providing lunch.

Here's the linky to the pics I took....

Julio's car drives great with the 404 ci and 3200 stall all he needs is D1 or turbos..

Some shots of the great workshop and GTG this past Saturday at Redline Motorsports. BIG thanks to Howard for not only hosting this great event but also feeding us! I for one learned quite a bit about our glorified air pumps and calculators (engine/computers). I think I speak for all when I say it was a great time, nice opportunity to put some faces to names and learn about this great shop which is not new, but new to SoFla. I see big things ahead in our community with this shop on the street and at the track! Thanks again Howard for supporting our little but strong G8/GTO community. I think you'll be seeing some of us again very soon.








That was some GOOD pizza!

elc32955, is there any way you can remove the block you have on the Redline photos so they can be mirrored elsewhere?

Didn't realize they were blocked. It looks like it's a Flickr thing, they won't allow linking to the original images unless you get a pay account with them. Not gonna happen. Let me see where else I can host, maybe Smugmug or something...

Would be cool to set something up but I don't think redline can host a bunch of meets there always busy on big projects

Albert let us know if you do and definitely mention that you heard about the Workshop!

What are you planning?

I will Ewing, a tune to try to improve the AFM to stay in it longer for now and to meet the guys there. Might also get a price on a ram air kit and Axel back for now.

Stay IN the AFM more? I don't think it's possible. The G8 stays in 4 cylinder for very short periods of time. Only when you are coasting and have almost no load. Almost like when driving downhill. The moment you give it any gas it needs to fire up all 8 cylinders. People actually turn it off as the AFM valvetrain is weak with lifters prone to failure.
