The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.
Oct 17, 2014 - 10:43 AM - by AutoGuide.com
Quote:
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of the week to watch the cars exiting. Additionally, the "best of show" awards will be given out during a televised presentation as part of the Ignited event. A proud sponsor of SEMA Ignited, AutoGuide will be on hand to capture all the action.

2014 Paris Motor Show Coverage
Oct 01, 2014 - 2:28 PM - by AutoGuide.com



Quote:

Kicking off the auto show season, the Paris Motor Show opens its doors to the public next week, but AutoGuide's team of reporters will get you inside early with three days of coverage from the City of Lights.



And there's a LOT of amazing hardware to see, from the Ferrari 458 Spider A, to a wild new Lamborghini Hybrid. The performance car action doesn't stop there either with the world premiere of the Mercedes AMG GT set to take place, along with a new 500+ horsepower C63 AMG.



Additional German performance comes from the new Audi TT, while rumors suggest a TT sedan will also be unveiled.



A long list of other cars includes the Range Rover Sport, Jaguar XE, Honda Civic Type R, Fiat 500X, Kia Sorento, VW Golf Alltrack and the Toyota C-HR – a sort of Prius crossover.



And one really big surprise is a 550-hp Infiniti Q80 hybrid concept.



Coverage runs October 1st to 3rd and, as always, includes the best auto show video coverage out there.

Hello Everyone, My name is Hassan aka Hazer, and I have been a part of G8Board since I bought my G8 in 2009. The car has come a LONG way since I bought it, and could be one of the most modified G8s ever.
I have always been a car guy, ever since I was a kid. I remember I used to be hooked on the Need for Speed games and would watch all the information videos about the cars themselves. Growing up I had always been different from all the other kids that would only talk about imports, and I would be the only one that would talk about GM Cars (which still hasn’t changed). I guess my love for GM began since my dad had always loved GM as well.
Enough about me time to talk about the car! You all may know my G8 as Oreo, since it is white and black I thought the name worked. I got it as an early Graduation present from my parents in 2009 when I was 17. I was looking at buying my dream car at that time which was a 1995 Nissan 240SX (which would have been swapped), but my dad didn’t want me to get something unreliable to drive to College every day. I gave him my savings and we were looking at 07 or 08 Subaru WRXs, but we didn’t get the deal we wanted. My dad had a bunch of points saved up on his GM Rewards Card so we went to Howard Pontiac/GMC and they had 2 G8s left which were both V6s; a PBM which had the ugly base model stereo or a WH which had the sun and sound package, so we ended up buying it for $24k + Taxes on August 6th 2009.
After going through many stages of the car:



My V6 put down 242whp and 260wtq, which was achieved with Pace Setter Longtube headers for a V6 Camaro, which I was the first to have, a Roto-Fab CAI, a custom 2.5” Exhaust, and a MACE Tune. The car wasn’t necessarily slow, I did beat 2010/2011 Camaro V6s, automatic G35 and 350z’s which is pretty good. I had put GXP Brembos on the front and BC Coilovers which still are some of my favorite mods on the car. I took the car up to Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI last year and had no issues keeping up with Mustang GT 4.6s and a Genesis Coupe 3.8.



I was getting bored of the power and really wanted to get something faster. I decided to try and sell the car, but at the same time I loved my car too much. I really was looking at CTS-V V2 sedans, or a 2014 Camaro SS 1LE had me dreaming. I tried to get at least $20,000 for my car as is with all the upgrades but didn’t get a close enough offer. I didn’t want to part out the car either it was too much of a hassle. I talked to Randy at LeftHandUtes and he had told me how easy it was to swap a V6 over to a V8. That’s all it took to convince me to do the swap. Everyone was telling me to just buy a G8 GT instead, which is a smarter idea, but once again swapping everything over is too much of a PITA. Also, I don’t think I would buy another G8 after modding the hell out of one already. You can’t beat keeping your first car and the fact that you could never be the first owner of a G8 again made me want to keep it. In February we pulled out the motor, and sold the whole swap on craigslist for about $1500. I used that money towards buying my L76 with 52,000 miles on it. It included a Motor w/ accessories, 3.27, Driveshaft and 6L80. Before the motor went in we put a RCR Blower cam, and Adam Schwab Ported Heads, WHICH ARE AWESOME, and a few other things that helped. Next Gen Auto (Elmhurst, IL) did the entire swap in a day! Roto-Fab was great with sponsoring me a new Intake to replace my V6 one. After the money spending was over I spent about $8,000 Parts and Labor on the entire swap, which to me was worth every penny.
