Joe: I'm in as long as the weather holds. Need to see how it runs after Rick Crawford Throttle Body, Manifold and tune. Not only that but need to wear down the rear tires a little more so I can have excuse for a new set before GONE. Expect this to be my debut into the 12's. :boink::boink:

Sorry, I am booked for April 20/21. My only chance will be April 28, weather permitting. It looks like I may just have my Kooks coated longtubes on by then along with my Solo Performance Hi-Flo Cats and connector pipes. I don't know if I will be able to re-tune before then or not, but I hope so!

Joe Dude: You are really starting to get into the mods. There goes that collector value. Do we see a cam in your future? :boink:

I know, right!? He's got 'the bug' for sure.

Collector value, who ever said anything about collector value? I didn't buy this car for collector value. Then again, I didn't buy it to turn it into an all-out racecar either. I suspect that adding the Kooks Long-Tubes and the Solo Performance Hi-Flo Cats & Connector pipes will likely get me to where I want to be. I don't see a cam in my future, but you never know. I do know that I plan to keep this car NA though. Superchargers and Turbochargers add great power, but alot of additional improvements are needed to support them. I am hoping that the mods I will have, along with great air and track prep, will push me into the very low 12s or maybe extremely high 11s (and 11.999 would be just fine, LOL!)

A small convoy will be leaving the Madison, WI area from the Stoughton Rd Park & Ride at 7 a.m. That should put us at the track by 8:30-8:45. Weather forecasts are looking awesome for Sunday! Hope to see lots of other G8s there!

Nice to meet those of you who joined us at Byron today! We had 4 G8s and a GTO in our group, and I think many of the people at the track were surprised at what these cars can do. Air was alright, but track prep was excellent. I'm afraid that we will have to wait for fall for the really good air now. Oh well it was a fun day anyway!
