No words can explain how happy I am that this car is done and done right, when i see the green light on the meth I grab the wheel with both hands and enjoy the ride . I had the maggie TVS 2300 on the car before and twin turbos win hands down

I'm 99% sure I could make the Camaro kit fit my G8

Keep me posted if it can be done without major re-engineering.

They are both the same chassis. I've been told the adapters bolt right up but haven't seen it. It would be a few different pipes for sure. I know a place in Washington is attempting to make it work on a CTSV.

If it can indeed be made to work on a G8 fairly easily, I think I'm in.

Are you going to buy a clutch and fuel system and a bunch of other parts too? The kit is no where near 10k.
Well,

70K miles on the LS3 right now (so would discuss beefing up the bottom end) - I have to pay for the kit, the removal of my CAI, LTs, then would want to coat my OEM exhaust manifolds....I'm not doing the install so pay for that and the tune, then while he 's in there, upgrade the fuel system, add a cam, add gauges & poss. boost controller, then yes - look at a Mantic clutch, then the drive line and rear axle...crap - now I want to finish the suspension (just upgraded bushings when I did the LT's), so Pfadt coil-overs, etc. to keep the car stuck while I blast through canyons....

....so, there is my $10, possibly $13K




But DAAAAAMN it will be fun when I can pull it off!!!1

The only issues with the G8 fitment is that the bumper area is different than the Camaros... It will definitely require some custom tubing going into the bumper area, and I'd definitely check the icooler fitment too.

There is no way the complete kit bolts onto a g8, but if the turbo adapters fit and turbos are in a good place then fabbing up cold side piping is easy and any decent fab shop or shop that can weld could do that. I know AGP isn't going to pursue the work to do a full g8 kit just because of the lack of demand.

Mostly. I would call the shop or talk with Matt@FSP, or Andy@ADM. It could be made tow work but some piping would need to be tweaked for the different TB location at the minimum. Turbos/etc should bolt on no issues.

Call Andy. I don't think the down pipes for the turbos will fit the ZL1 exhaust manifolds. I believe he tried a set but your best bet is to call him.

Worst case would have to swap to the SS manifolds if that is the case.
