From what I have read yes but you need the entire front end, hood, bumper, fender.Just wondering if anyone has tried this. Looks like it should be an exact fit, if you figure out what to do on the leading edge of the hood.
Quick edit with a google'd G8 picture, sorry for the sloppy work.
Not really - unless you install the earlier HSV E1 that uses the Commodore SSV hood (without the vent). The HSV E2 & E3 as pictured (if you only want the bumper) only thing that needs to be interchanged with a G8 is the front bumper facia. HSV models are not finished out at the VE factory but at a seperate facility, and when they leave the dealership they MUST meet AU factory standards with bumpers and wheels (mostly recycled and reusable parts). The wheels on the car when sent comes with steel spares all around. Once arrived at Walkinshaw's shop they install suspension, brakes, engine upgrades (early E1 LS2 had a cam upgrade & E2/E3 LS3 installed) bumpers, fenders, interior, etc. I've seen photos of HSV using G8 (Special Edition) hoods and GT bumpers (in flat black) when leaving the factory and once removed the G8 bumpers went back to the VE plant while other parts were discarded. So hence, it comes with a G8 GT bumper and hood that would mean to save money they would probably use the same skirts and undertrays that our G8 uses for the E2/E3 conversion.
