Gotcha, I don't plan on going back to Nelson for anything other than installs. I'm just gonna make the drive down to Victoria and see Pat G for all the tuning. Once I get my headers installed I'll be down that way. I may go to nelson to install the mgw cause it looks like a pita install.

Wally, have you thought about switching drag radials, like to Mickey Thompsons? Then maybe get a line lock so you can do a good burn out really easily and you'll dead hook every time. Maybe shift based on sound if you don't want to look down at the tach. Few hundred bucks worth of tires and parts and you can be the fastest documented gxp!

Damn OBX is out of stock everywhere. Figure I'll go with Pacsetters again, this time coated. Wally did you have to do any modifications to get them to fit the GXP? At Marylandspeed its claiming they don't fit the GXP.

ROB, Got my long tubes @ Summit, They fit fine, need the extenders. I'll see if I can find the paper work for the numbers.
Justin, I would have to buy 17" or 18" wheels. Nitto is the only one that makes 19"DRL's.

Thanks wally, I found them coated and pretty cheap on Amazon. Did u install the mgw shifter yourself or take it to a shop? Mine just came in today but I'm thinking its gonna be a pain to install

Had it changed out when I had the clutch done. I understand that it can be a bi***.
Good luck

Got my mgw shifter installed by Lethal Performance for 100$. I talked with some of the guys and they were actually pretty cool. The service was not bad either, I was impressed. Shifter feels awesome!

Blkdeath, yes. The gxp comes stock with 19's and sport tires.

Well since it has been a while since I have been to AS I have heard there is a car show the local vette guys up here go to in SA so was gonna head down on Saturday and see if anyone or another group of people were gonna cruise around or hit up the twisted sisters.

Was also wondering what some good options were for a stronger alternator were since my Maggie seems to be straining mine now.

Skor, thanks for the reply.

I know the 19"s will fit on the car, I am wondering if they will physically fit In the G8.

I'm thinking that you'll be able to get three rim/tires in the trunk, but not four. I just had two 19" rims/tires in my trunk and there looked like enough room for one more.

Here's an idea put one in the spare tire well and the other three in the top portion of the trunk. Boom...done!!!

Just saw Ben on 35. Car's looking gr8 man! We're you lowered before or is that new? Did you paint your arrowheads?

You see how filthy my ride is? Lol! On Saturday Amy and I volunteered at a farm that benefits needy families and I had to drive down a long dirt road in podunkville. Haven't had time to clean all the red dirt off my car bc I left for Vegas (for work) on Sunday and flew back this morning and had to drive straight to a meeting in New Braunsfels from the airport.... My car is in desperate need of some tlc...

Best way is-- One in the spare tire well, two in the trunk (you'll have to let air out of one to fit two in the trunk), and one on the floor on the rear passenger side with the front passenger seat pulled all the way forward (towel wrapped around it so you don't get stuff dirty).

I'm always down for a meet. Car should be out of the shop Friday, as long as I can get a clear bra put on her by Saturday, I'm good to go. Rock chips are the devil.
