Pontiac G8 GT LOUD sounds!
Here is a ridiculously loud Pontiac G8 that I was fortunate enough to ride
in on the way to today's (July 1, 2012) Caffeine and Octane car show. This
car features too many upgrades to list: Ported/polished heads, aftermarket
camshaft, Exhaust cutouts, and much
more! I mounted my Cybershot DSC-H70 to the bumper and the results were
My apologies for the camera's wrist strap flying around in front of the

Pontiac G8 GT with Solo Mach Balanced Exhaust
This is a video of my 2009 Pontiac G8 GT, which has a Vararam ram air
intake, a DiabloSport programmer and a Solo Mach Balanced cat-back Exhaust system. The Exhaust kit is all stainless steel and features
Solo's awesome J-pipe design, which reduces drone dramatically. This is the
perfect Exhaust kit for someone
wanting a more aggressive sound without being too loud.
The Solo Mach Balanced Exhaust kit
works well on my car, and actually picked it up two tenths in the eighth
mile. Before the Exhaust it ran a best
of 8.85 in the eighth mile, and after the Exhaust it ran 8.68 with no tuning. A custom
tune would make it perform even better. The sound is awesome, the
performance is awesome, and it looks good too!

2009 PONTIAC G8 GT - FULLY BOLTED BUILD-UP plus CUSTOM AIRBRUSHING and HI SPEED!!
Recently purchased a 2009 Pontiac G8 GT with 8,900 miles. Car was
immaculate, so began staging for a full bolt-ons build-up that would
increase HP gains, but wouldn't void the manufacturer's warranty. Parts
used were American Racing long tube headers, Magnaflow Exhaust, Rotofab CAI, Powerbond underdrive
pulley, throttle body port & polish and East Texas Muscle Cars custom Dyno tune.
A stock Dyno pull was
performed, producing 302RWHP. After all upgrades were complete, the final
Dyno pull produced
371RWHP and 387RWTQ.

Pontiac G8 - Kelley Blue Book's Review
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS CHECK OUT
When describing the quintessential American sedan, car enthusiasts no-doubt
mention V8 engines and rear-wheel drive. So it is surprising that Pontiac,
General Motor's supposed performance division, hasn't offered that
powertrain combination for years. Classic car fans can now rejoice: the
Pontiac G8 is a thoroughly modern car that harkens back to the
rear-wheel-drive glory days of American sedans.
Having been out of the rear-drive V8 game for a while, Pontiac found
inspiration in Australia where high-power sedans have thrived for decades.
Essentially a re-badged Australian-market sedan, the G8 delivers a
much-needed performance punch for Pontiac, in both V6 and V8 flavors.

Pontiac G8 GT and GXP - Review / Transformation
This is a video review of a Pontiac G8 GT with Dave "DuBob" Richie. He's a
former owner of a modified 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP, which is one of the
nicest Grand Prixs in the country and won 1st place in several club
contests. Dave is an active member on ClubGP and G8 Board. We definitely
had some fun with this one, so I hope you'll enjoy it.
