    Pics of my ride - First wash

    So as some know, I sold my 01 T/A and traded my truck for an 09 g8 gt. Finally got some time to clean all the swirls the dealer and/or previous owner put in the car. Just did a quick job of wash, clay, polish, polish, sealant since it will be a dd. (spent about 5 to 5 1/2 hrs counting beer time)

    What'cha think? Oh btw, I guess g8's aren't welcome around here. I got no good sections to post my car pics.

    Hey, I like it! It's a great looking 4-door LS1 (they are LS1s right? I admit I can't remember the specs on these bad boys...)

    That looks great in black with tinted windows!

    I knew I was gonna get some grief on that, but they are a happy dealership. Technically it's an L76. It's a 6.0 ls2 with better heads and a milder cam to my knowledge. They're putting out a dissapointing 290-305 rwhp stock. Supposedly a tune helps stock form well.

    I like but I'm a bit bias....

    Looks like you did an awesome job on the paint. I'd say some black out tape or paint on the grill surround and window trim is in order. Enjoy your new ride...

    Cool, like I said lots of good info and great people, just like here.

    BTW, have you done any mods? First thing I did was the BASS mod for the stereo and then I got rid of my mufflers and replaced them with a straight pipe from the axle back inexpensive and it sounds nice. A bit of drone due to AFM but its a great value I think.

    Here's a link to similar product made by SLP, they claim 10 HP but want $399. They have pics and a video. I got mine done for 120 at a local muffler shop, I used my stock tips...

    Again nice ride, enjoy...

    Hell yes... I went into the trunk and found the stupid gain and cranked it up to about 75-80%. To have an 11 speaker stereo sound like an ice cream truck is rediculous.

    I don't know if my muffler shop would do this? are removing those two mufflers street legal? I know it seems like it has six of them.

    I honestly couldn't tell you if its legal or not. SLP says it is emissions legal in all 50 states. I'm sure it has nothing to do with pollutions, its just to make it quiet.

    Below is a link to the product description from Maryland speed.
    http://marylandspeed.com/slp-loudmou...91-p-2244.html

    The axle backs are one there with the use of two bolts, some have added one or two washers between the flange and the bolt to make a leak in the exaust and get a similar sound but is very low compared to the SLP setup or mine. Here's a comparo video I made stock v.s. no muffler.

    Best thing is you can try it and if you don't like it you can be back to stock in 5 minutes.

    Cheers

    Another plus is if you like it and use custom tips you can sell your mufflers on here or GRRRR8.net and get some cash back.

    Here's a couple vids with the free washer mod.

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eO3c_1wlncM[/ame]

    Here's a good vid seems like WOT with no muffers. I wouldn't recommend doing this on a side street and there's some music in the middle but only for a few seconds...

    Maryland speed is a good place to order from for the G8.

    Don't know where to get the two tone car seat but what ever you do make sure you get one that has a smooth bottom and back, I used my car for 3K miles last year and when I pulled the car seat to store the G8 for winter the leather looked like ass. Still has all the indentations from the grooves on the car seat and the bottom and back rest are separated by like an inch.
