2009 g8 gt for sale, 15,000 miles. $32k

700+rwhp, easy 10’s in the ¼ mile, reliable daily driver.

I hate to sell the car but it is at a turning point where I need to consider a built motor and a roll bar if I want to go any faster and I hate to ruin the car with a roll bar.

Here are the details on all of the mods.

TURBO SET UP
Twin precision 60mm billet wheel turbos mounted where the factory cats used to be, conservatively rated at 650hp each
Twin tial 38mm waste gates
Tial 50mm blow off valve
Full dual 3” stainless exhaust
Blitz speed based boost controller
Dual in single out front mount intercooler
2” charge pipes from each turbo, 3” charge pipe from intercooler to engine.
All pipes are stainless. Exhaust is made with vbands.

ENGINE
Comp cam non dod cam. 216/224 .561/568" 115LSA +2 advance
LS7 Lifters
LS2 Lifter Trays
Comp Cams Adjustable Timing Set
Comp valve springs and push rods
Stock mls head gaskets with arp head bolts
Melling oil pump, new style timing chain tentioner
Pinned power bond under drive pully
160deg stat

TRANSMISSION
CircleD pro III 245mm triple disk converter, stated 3200rpm stall speed
CircleD built 6l80e. Link to video >> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pkT9...layer_embedded
Line pressure sensor wired into hptuners so I can log actual line pressure
B&M cooler

FUEL SYSTEM
Stock intank pump feeding a 2 gallon surge tank
Tripple 392 walbro pumps staged.
-10 feel line to front of car
-6 return line
Fuel lab regulator
Areomotive rails
96lb injectors at 43.5psi base
Car is tuned and running on e85, fuel system should be good for 1000rwhp on e85 or 1500rwhp on gas
Car is plumed/wired for a progressive AIS alcohol injection system but it is not installed at this time

OTHER STUFF
17x9.5 Z06 replicas for the rear of the car
Near new 295/45/17 Micky Thompson drag radials
Tinted windows
V6 door handles and tails, still have stock tails
Dynotune rectangle gauges, a/f ratio, fuel pressure, boost
Inovate wideband

The car runs great and is a blast to drive. I have put 4000miles on it in the last 6 weeks including 3200miles going on drag week. No issues at all. Ran several low 11 passes and a best ot [email protected] with a 1.68 60’.

Car gets to park inside but it has been driven like a normal car so it isn’t perfect. It has a couple of dings, a couple of chips, a ding in the window tint. It’s very nice but not show room perfect.

Other issues. You can hear the oil return pump when the car is cold. Car has the typical gm piston slap on cold days when the engine is still cold. It has been doing it for 10,000miles and is no worse. Converter has a rattle when in park. CircleD checked it and fixed it but it came back quickly, they say no issue with running it that way but you can hear it. The 17’s rub a little in the back when the car is fully loaded

I am sure there are parts I forgot and maybe an issue or two as well. I cant say enough how nice the car is to drive. After the tranny build it is a whole new car. The tranny is out on my truck and once that gets back I will be getting the g8 professionally detailed. Car should be ready to go in a week or so.​

Saw that, pretty cool. But if I was to spend $30K on a race-car it wouldn't be a G8.

True but you loose a kidney you can not do anything physical. From what I understand u get a hit in the empty spot your in a world of hurt.

On the side note the G8 is nuts!
