New Owner Introduction

I thought that I'd register and introduce myself. I'm registered over at ls1gto.com as GlacialBass and previously owned an 05 GTO M6 with the usual bolt-ons. I sold it after I bought my house and started a family and recently picked up a new go-fast family car.

2009 SBM G8 GT - Sport + Premium. 33k miles.

I'll be starting some basic mods sometime early next year (cam, headers, etc.) and am looking forward to having fun with the car.

Seems like this is a pretty slow forum. Are people letting their cars hibernate and doing the same with the forum?

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new purchase! As for the Forum being slow, yes it can be from time to time, peaks and valleys, but the ones who do contribute regularly are extremely knowledgable and helpful.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your G8!
I think you'll find plenty of solid info on here and since you're not a newb to forums I'll save you the greenie grief.
First mods: GXP rear diffuser, you have to do it. Makes the car look much better.

Welcome. Being in Morrison, I am going to assume to make it to Bandi fairly often. If you you do Club Clash, look us up...Twisted Racing. We have a few SBM's already, as that seem to be the most common G8 color at Bandi...not to mention the fastest. If you ever make it up to Wyoming, look me up.

Gone but not forgotten:
1 of 35 - SBM GXP A6 w/roof #321020 (#1811 of 1829)
Thunder Racing LS3 cam, 224/236 .609/.607, 117+2; UD Crank
Custom Tune, ARH 1 3/4" LT's, Vararam, Yank 3200, Dave's plate kit
Pre-Cam: 372whp/361wtq at 7200ft, [email protected], 1.84 60ft, 8574ft DA

Not sure I'll be able to commit to club clash, but I'll certainly have the car at the track a few times. It will be odd to run slower than I did with my GTO, so I guess I'll have to start modding!

What's up brother?!

You're right...I'm enjoying this retired thing! Too bad I had to get a job, but oh well...life is swell.

Hit me up if you are ever way down south...I'll let ya know when we go north to Loveland to hit up Runza's!
