G8 of the Month for May - Congrats to TYRFRYR

Here's the skinny on this beauty:

2009 Pontiac G8 GT - Pacific Slate Blue

I previously owned two late model GTOs. One was a Nitrous car at 569/495 and the other was a Heads & Cam car that put down 491/434.

When I bought the G8 I knew from day one that I was going to do a supercharger car. Of the three, I love the G8 hands down.

I absoloutely love that I can drive it like a regular stocker: get the groceries, go on a date, pick the kids up from carpool, etc.....

My daughter and I even road tripped it to Daytona Beach and Orlando twice last summer. Just set the cruise and roll out at a whopping 23 mpg!!

Now having said all of that, I can take it to the track without so much as changing the air pressure in the tires and run 11.6-11.7 all night long!!!

Roto-Fab CAI (Filter and Filter Housing)
Kooks Long 1-3/4” Long Tube Headers

Heh tirefryer your car is beautiful!!! Seriously man it is awesome! And I'm jealous. Yours is pretty much what I had pictured of what my car should be. You were the one that snuck in and bought this out from under me before I could get back. Really T Fryer with the right backdrop this car should be on the billboards etc.etc. proudly representing our G8 community. Great Job!
