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.

Man...that is a slick kit. Gonna have ADM install one on my '14 1LE when it arrives. What are they using to coat the manifolds?

Local place does good ceramic coating. Makes a world of difference. Keeps everything cool in the engine bay and keeps the heat into the turbos so they spool quick/etc.

We prefer raw parts as we have our own coating just down the street with our own color combo's.
