Picture moment outside SOLO Performance US Headquarters

My car wanted to pose outside of SOLO US Headquarters, in Buffalo NY.

I obliged.



They do go way back, you know... (In fall 2009 my first SOLO catback was installed on this very g8, my car was a test mule for some pre-release exhaust technology over the years, and since 2009 I've had close to 12 different iterations of various SOLO exhaust combinations on my car!)

By far, my personal favorite combination is my current setup, which is the SOLO Mach Unbalanced (with J-pipes) Catback, with SOLO High Flow Cats, and Kooks LT's and Livernois tune.

Anyways, given the awesome history here, I thought it appropriate that my car posed outside of SOLO for a quick photo opportunity. This was taken a few weeks ago.

Just wanted to leave this here.

Nice moment, Zep! Thanks mostly to you, the Solo guys have gotten a couple of grand out of me, and I've gotten tons more enjoyment (and perhaps even a bit better fuel economy!) out of my G8.

I just gave my best friend a listen to the car with the HFCs and resonators on there, and he couldn't believe how cool it sounded - he was grinning from ear to ear at the rumbly idle and rip-snorting (followed by lots of popping!) on-throttle sound.

2009 G8 GT in MSM: no sunroof, no sport package, no leather... just the standard-equipment "yee haw"!

Mods: K&N air filter, AEM Brute Force short-ram, Solo Mach Balanced + HFCs + resonators, Livernois ECM/TCM tune(s), gorgeous wife mod
Other cars:
1996 Caprice Classic: dark cherry, LT1, B4U
1977 Mercury Cougar XR7: light jade metallic, rare 302/low-option Ontario car

If you're going to have the Kooks LT in hand, then you'd want our catted midpipe with the Mach unbalanced exhaust. It's special order, but will be a 100% bolt on application. They get installed with the headers, at the same time. That needs to be ordered a week in advance so we can build it and have it ready for you. You can call me at 516-655-9002 when you are ready and I can take the special order and have the guys start building it. Thanks
