Nice list, but forget the "CHIP" they really don't work. There is a tune for the LY7, Trifecta or MACE are about the only one's. The MACE was developed on the car of fellow board member Hazer. You should look at his signature and you will see the mods he has done so far...

I got the car less than a month ago, give me a break, this list is for mods specifically designed for / compatible with the pontiac g8 v6. Like I said before, you know of something for this list, post it, if you have other more complex mods that may not have originally been designed for the car but work, pm me what you have and ill compile them in a new post.
