  1. Need advice on Front Stabilizer bar/bushings.

    Suspension / Brakes
    As stated above, once you remove the two bolts(As a heavy suspension mechanic, I would assume the bolts have 13mm or possibly 15mm heads), pull the bracket off and remove the old bushing. Replace the old bushing with the new one. Sometimes the bushings are hard to get over the bar, depending...
  2. Tinting taillights

    Appearance / Detailing
    I think they used the VHT spray. It was so bad that there were huge runs in it. It looked terrible. Yours came out looking great!
  3. Tinting taillights

    Appearance / Detailing
    I don't know why multiple pictures are showing. My apologies.
  4. Tinting taillights

    Appearance / Detailing
    Looks good! I just picked up a 05 G6 GT to drive thru the winter so I can store my G8. The tail lights were poorly tinted so I removed the tint. Lacquer thinner and some good old fashioned elbow grease and they came out looking like new. After removing with thinner, I cleaned them up good and...
  5. SCT tune

    V6 Engine Tech (LY7)
    I went with a Magnaflow True X muffler/pipe and Magnaflow axle back exhaust with dual tips. They are made for the GT but it works just fine for the V6 and sounds damn good. I also added a K&N cold air intake and a catch can and then had it tuned. Huge difference. I would guess that all the mods...
  6. Overkill tune

    G8 Talk (V6)
    I don't know why so many pictures are showing. I only attached two. My apologies.
  7. Overkill tune

    G8 Talk (V6)
    When I bought my 09 G8 last November, I tried getting ahold of Will and Overkill Motorsports for months. No replies, no nothing. I gave up on the dude and went with someone else. Glad it worked out for you and I hope he's around for you if you need him in the future. I know I can count on my...
  8. Looking for Headers

    V6 Engine Tech (LY7)
    Talk to Joe LaBruzza @ G8Only. He should be able to take care of you.
  9. Painting my calipers... what about the brackets?

    Appearance / Detailing
    The red is the perfect contrast to the pacific slate metallic surprisingly! I still need to do the rear calipers but I'm very happy with the way it came out. Check out the pics... Also painting the engine covers the color of the car. Maybe some red on the raised areas. Still up in the air on...
  10. Painting my calipers... what about the brackets?

    I ultimately went with red....
  11. Problem with FE3s up front and FE2s out back?

    Suspension / Brakes
    I just replaced all four of the front lower control arms and after researching the different options, I ultimately went with Moog. Unfortunately... they only offer the R series, which according to the box, are made in Taiwan and do not have grease fittings. Even after a pretty big discount, it...
  12. Painting my calipers... what about the brackets?

    Appearance / Detailing
    Looks good but I'm not really sold on black brackets. I'm thinking either red or silver.
  13. Who needs G8 workshop manuel

    G8 Owner's Spotlight
    Andy... I have seen them on eBay for 300-500. I bought them used for 75 bucks and they are like new! Thousands of pages of information. They cover EVERYTHING you could think of.
  14. Current Base V6 Mods

    G8 Talk (V6)
    CAI, performance exhaust with X pipe and a tune. The tune helped immensely. I thought about headers, etc but....Na... I'm happy with it as is now. Good luck to you!
  15. Maverick Man MIA?

    Besides G8Only....
  16. Painting my calipers... what about the brackets?

    Appearance / Detailing
    For those of you who have painted you're calipers, did you paint the caliper brackets as well? My G8 is Pacific Slate Metallic aka Karma Blue and I will be doing the calipers in red. Picked up the Dupli-Color caliper kit yesterday and am looking forward to getting these done but after searching...
  17. Maverick Man MIA?

    Appearance / Detailing
    Glad to hear you got it! Was it worth the wait? I wish someone else offered carbon fiber pieces for our G8's. MavMan makes a great product, but the wait times are a bit ridiculous. I tried telling him 6 months ago that there is a whole nother generation getting into these cars and he should...
  18. G8 GT Wheels/Tires

    G8 GT Talk (V8)
    If you want a smooth ride, I would highly recommend a set of Michelin's. Best tire money can buy as far as I'm concerned. Stay away from General and Cooper tires. In my 25 years as a suspension mechanic and having done thousands of alignments, Michelin is the best.
  19. This was scary to find

    Suspension / Brakes
    Wow... good catch! That is scary, and I'm a suspension mechanic. Glad you caught it.
  20. 2008 g8 base supercharger

    G8 Talk (V6)
    Like everyone said, you would be far better off getting a V8. Turbo or supercharging it will cost a helluva lot more. Besides, would you really want a used turbo or supercharger on your car? I wouldn't. Good luck to you.
