Hey everyone,
I'm fairly new here. I purchased my G8 back in December from a member here (PSMG8GT-John). The car had already came with a Corsa catback and TSW wheels. Shortly after driving back from Texas I placed an order for Kooks LT, H&R springs and a Spectre CAI. At first I could'nt really decide what I wanted to do with the car and after putting some thought in to it I finally pulled the trigger and went all out.

My build consists of:
custom grind cam
dod delete
ARP studs
full cnc l92 heads from WCCH A.K.A. Pro Heads
FTI 3200 multi disk converter
and other supporting parts such as oil pump, gaskets, etc.
I also have a set of camaro brembos waiting to be installed

I think its cool watching a car develop over the days/months and how the owner keeps changing up things.

Thanks guys... I got the converter and cam in but haven't had the chance to really take any many pics. As of now I'm waiting to get my heads back I should see those sometime mid next week. I'll be sure to snap some more pics when I start wrenching again. I'll also try and take a video of the idle once everything is done.

Got some more work done on the car. I installed the trans cooler, camaro deep pan and filter kit, and also started on the head studs. Heads will hopefully be ready sometime next week and the car should up and running in the next 2 weeks.
