Need Help!! G8 first experience.
Hello. I joined the forum because I need your assistance. I figured this would be the best place because people here actually OWN a G8. There is this guy selling his for 10k. I told him id give him 10 for the car. Due to me recieving money from a lawyers firm. I called them and they told me the ACTUAL final amount was 8100.... told the dude, was upset, but eventually worked out to 9600.
The car is a:
-2008 G8 GT
-Has Aftermarket heads
-"Dod delete" whatever that means
-Long tube headers
-75-175 shot of nitrous 2x bottles.
-Lowered about 1/2 inch from stock height
-has 134xxx M on the clock.
-Needs a lower control arm soon.
-straight piped no cats.
Dude bought it as a pace car? I think thats what he said. Basically he's had it since about 20k Miles. Ran it hard through all of his ownership.
NOW here is my questions to you higher ups. Ive read about the 6l80e and how eventually around 130k itll need a rebuild. How has y'alls held up? What is this Flare shift term i keep reading about? Has any of you had major problems with trannys? What are common things to look out for? What are signs that its a bad tranny/buy?
Guy told me some kind of tune is on the transmission... what would this be affecting? Told me off nitrous around 520hp. Has the 6.0 L76? (I think) ive never owned a GM product due to me always believing that they arent good products. Always seem to see stuff about the trans (4l60, 6l80e, 6l90) should i spend it on this car? Im 18 and this is probably the most money ive ever spent in one shot. I come from Jeeps, Fords, Mazdas. Etc. (this would be my first GM product)
(Also I test drove it used the manual mode and shifts feels a little delayed is this normal?)
