2009 Pontiac G8This is the one that started it all for us, a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT.

This one didn't stay stock for long! Soon after it came home from the dealer, it was running Kooks longtubes, RotoFab cold air kit, and a Solo exhaust setup. 

Round 2 of mods included a cam swap, and FTI converter the following summer.

In 2013, it was time to take the next big step and went forced induction. We installed a D1 ProCharger, Squash Fuel System, and ID850 injectors.

Later that fall we competed in Hot Rod Magazine's Drag Week and made the Quick 32 Shootout in the finals. The hardest part was slowing the car down to comply with the mid 11 second roll bar rule! 

Since that time, the car has changed ownership and has been as fast as 10.8 at Pittsburgh Raceway. It also competed in the 2015 Hot Rod Drag Week, and once again made the quick 32 shootout in the finals.

Here's a quick video of the G8 idle. Nothing sounds better than a little cam lope!
