  1. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    I've narrowed down my cam options from recommendations from what I (and most of you) consider reputable sources. My options are: BTR stage 2 LS3 cam 225/238 .620"/.605" 113+3 p/n 32538133R1 Or PatG spec'd 225/232 .629"/.615" 112+3 The cams are clearly different but my question is what does...
  2. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Hello I am a newbie but I am looking to do a dod delete to my 08 G8 with 130k miles. Below is a list of parts im thinking to buy. Please let me know your thoughts. Will be resuing heads and replacing the trunnion, valve springs, and pushrods. -Will I have any issue reusing the heads? G8 Dod...
  3. Exhaust Tech
    So it seems like most are in agreement that a cat back on an otherwise stock G8 should add approximately 10 hp give or take. I want to know how much hp gains can be had from any full cat back on my engine over the stock exhaust system. I’m doing a dod delete on my 09 g8 gt. Cam specs are...
  4. G8 GT Talk (V8)
    My 09 g8 gt is going on the dyno this weekend.. any guesses what she will make?? MODS: ASA cam, longtubes, 3.90 gears and obviously DOD has been deleted
  5. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    So first off, my car: 2009 G8 GT, 35,000 miles, and daily driven 70 miles a day round trip to work, 90% freeway. Full OBX exhaust from 1 7/8 long tube headers, to the factory GT mufflers, no cats. Used stock GTO intake tube for free flow, factory air box, K&N filter. Wideband O2 to tune with HP...
  6. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Just finished up installing the dod delete package and here's a short idle video. That was the first start without a new tune so it is running a little rough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZbyD-kfqEM
  7. Central
    Found this gem at a local dealership, one of the best kept GTO's I've ever seen. They have it listed for 17,000 with 55,xxx miles. Really good deal. Hopefully someone from here or the GTO forum can find someone who wants one. Would hate to see it go to someone who doesn't know much about them...
  8. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    This is a Patrick G spec'd cam: 218/226 .595”/.605” 115 LSA +4 Dual springs and hardened rods otherwise stock internals. Remainder of mods in sig. Exhaust is all stock but the ARH 1 7/8 LT's from Nick are in the box and going on "soon". One thing at a time. Learned that the very hard way with...
  9. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    So on the route to purchasing a cam and have narrowed it down to two. My goal is like most, preparing for blower while keeping her DD AND adding as much hp as possible. I've been considering the Livernois Stage 1 (224/230 .581/.590" 114 LSA) and a custom Pat G cam (218/230 .595/.609" 115 LSA +2)...
  10. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Hey guys im wanitng to get some input on who I should order from. I originally was going to go with Vector Motorsports and that was based on everything I read on Knoxvilles thread. I have decided not to go with them based on no communication from them. I have emailed them numerous times even...
  11. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    So I decided to do it, I purchased the VMS Stage 2.5 cam package with ported CNC Heads along with a 3200 Yank Stall Torque Converter along with some other goodies like a Tranny cooler, and Oil Catch can. I felt like a fat kid in a candy store after I saw these boxes waiting for me when I got...
  12. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    I am looking for a "mild-ish" cam for my car. I am getting rid of the DOD as well. I have a custom tune, underdrive pulley, vararam, catless LT headers, 3" Magnaflow with X-pipe, and a 402 forged stroker kit from Probe. Also, I will be keeping the stock stall for the time being.
  13. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    I ordered the Livernois 2C cam and DOD delete, everything should be here tomorrow and I will hopefully dive into it on Wednesday!!!!!!! Pics to come!
  14. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Ok, I was going to buy the 404 ci stroker kit from Livernois but decided to put it off for bigger better things down the road....... For the meantime I want to at least get a cam and dod delete kit. I just can't figure out which package to go for or if I should just get a custom grind and cam...
  15. G8 GT Talk (V8)
    I am torn between the 1 and 1c cam, can someone with experience tell me about how they feel about their selection. Any regrets one way or the other? Need help deciding which to get for my DD. Thanks for your input.
  16. PCM Tuning / Dyno Results
    Just had my car Dyno Tuned at Automotion in Louisville, Ky by Rob Raymer. I'm really happy with the results! Thought I would share them with you guys. I had it Raymer Tuned a couple weeks ago before I removed the cats and installed a 160 thermostat. On the Base Pull with only the DOD shut off...
  17. Exhaust Tech
    Swapping my mufflers out (again), figured I would take a video clip... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QOZkaW9oMY I've gone through a number of exhaust setups and I really like the Pypes. Great looking tips, good sound, good fit, and surprisingly cheap!

    Just got my flowmasters installed... heres a clip of what it sounds like! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_eLnK-VP62c
  19. V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    The GMPP catalog for 2009 shows the LS3 engine (which it refers to as being in the G8 GXP) as having a cam with the following specs: Lift 0.551" I 0.522" E Duration 204d I 211d E with 1.7:1 rockers Does anyone know if that's the spec for what's in the GXP? There are several LS3...
