2008 Pontiac G8 Description

I am the secondowner. It has numerous upgrades, new parts, etc. which are listed below. I took care of the car very well. It makes 411hp at the wheels. Here are some special notes:
- Engine rebuild – at ~120k miles,Both before and after rebuild the compression read at 185-190 across all cylinders. Replaced cam, upgraded rocker arm bearings, pushrods, valves, springs, etc. Got the transmission professional rebuilt, replacing any/all worn parts. Got a professional dyno tune from Geoff Skinner at Engine Performance Systems.
- Suspension – Replaced shocks, springs, and all bushings (poly) at ~130k miles.
- Brakes – Upgraded to 4-piston Brembos (front) and just put new pads on (2/2/16).
- Wheels/Tires – Brand, spakin’ new (2/2/16). Details below.
- Interior – Very clean and no real wear-n-tear. New floormats (1 yr old), new steering wheel (1 yr old)
- Sound system – Completely upgraded everything. Reprogrammed radio for XM radio. Replaced all speakers, wires, added amp and sub, put sound-deadening in most of the interior (details below)
Quick note about my philosophy. I do not upsell. I am 100% honest about the car. You will notice that all of the pics aren’t “perfect”. I washed the car and vacuumed the interior. I didn’t put special glossy crap to make the seats look shiny (the seats and other leather were regularly treated with Meguiare’s leather conditioner). I want the pics to look exactly like the car that I drive every day and that you will pick up if you buy it. That said, there are a few issues you should know about. I was involved in a very recent fender-bender that I have elected not to repair. Front-right wheel well has 2 small dents and 1 area where the clearcoat was rubbed off (guy merged into me). And the rear spoiler broke off (I am hesitant to do anything, as I don’t know if a future owner will want to use goof-off and keep it off, or replace it). Beyond those things, the car is in excellent condition.

- The trans was rebuilt during the engine upgrade install. The TCU (Trans Control Unit) has a custom tune that makes “Drive” a stock-type tune (shifts normally). But, “Sport” is truly a sporty tune. Instead of only activating after ~10 seconds of spirited driving, it defaults to a true “Sport mode”, where it holds gears longer, makes shifts harder/faster, etc.also has a circle D torque converter 278mm

The car will come with 2 VMR V710 replica wheels (provided I cannot sell them outright) that have tires mounted already. These would be great to keep as spare tires (not in the trunk, though). The tires are almost done, but would last another 500 miles or so.
That’s about all I can remember right now. I’m certain there are other little things I’ve forgotten about. The car has 175k miles, but as you can see, the most essential parts (engine, trans, suspension, etc.) have less than 50k miles on them. The car runs great. I ran it once in the quarter 12.90s at 110mph spinning off the line i'm sure with a good set of tires it would go 12.50s
