Tuned Vs. Stock comparison vid.

Here is a quick comparison video of my G8 before and after the tune. I wanted to get a speedo reading of just how much of an improvement the tune really is.

First part of the video is just with the solo mach shorty exhaust...second part is with a CAI and OVERKILLED!

Looks like 12 seconds to go 60-100mph just exhaust versus 9 seconds 60-100mph with tune, CAI and exhaust? It sounds stronger too. Thanks for the video.

I'd say that's about right. Quite a big difference for sure. More of an improvement than I thought actually. I just wasn't able to tell how much until I put those videos side by side to see. It has a meaner deeper roar not only at WOT but just in daily driving.
