Hey so I'm new to the G8 and this site but I'm looking for a good list of all the different mods you can do to the G8. I have the V6, I already installed a K&N air intake system and changed all the lights to HIDs. I'm looking to get more HP and MPG. I seen a lot of difference threads saying their ain't to much that can be done, such as chip or tune, so I'm ver curious. Anything information and list of different mods to think about. Please help with a list, places or websites to get equipment, or link to other threads for good accurate information.

Thanks
Ed

Congrats on you entering the world of the G8. I first had a Base V6 and wanted to get the most out of her. There are others that have just about squeezed out all you can get. Mine was dyno'd and i got 224 H.P.out of her , i had a CAI, deleted my mid muffler added a x-pipe in place of it. Also deleated the resonators , the numbers were pretty good ,only had about 8% loss in the drivetrain to the rear wheels.Hazer also put headers on and intake insulators and a Mace tune,he did the most. There are threads on here with all that can be done.She is pretty snappy for a 4,000# V 6 so enjoy and welcome to the board.

For the V6 get the intake insulators from Mace. and open up the exhaust. and there is also a tune for our V6s which will add up to 50 hp maybe not that much but close to it.

If i may give a suggestion, i would go with the tune from Mace Engineering out of Australia. they do a great job. a few members have that and i think were all pretty satisfied. you can PM me for more specifics if youre interested.

Depending how deeply you want to get involved, there is always a 3.45 Camaro differential conversion or a six speed automatic swap...lol

Les- I can't seem to find any on that site. It's like to build apps and stuff. I don't know if I'm looking at the right place or not.

Have you done ANY independent research on ANY of your questions?
i've stopped asking that question... we need to make the search button 3 times its size... awww hell people would still ignore it. :slap:

i remember maybe a year ago i put a post about an aftermarket supercharger for camaros that i thought would be cool for our cars... and someone mentioned the STS Kits...

here you go, a quick SEARCH found it.

Check with Hazer, I see he has a set of Mace intake insulaters for sale.

From a unnamed mental institution. ...
