Our Pedderised, ProCharged Corsa equipped G8 make 480 RWHP. The OE Wheels and Tires are bit under size. Running at the strip with the traction control on the car still rips loose on the up shifts -- even when I try to moderate the throttle at the point of the up shift. Our best runs are 12.7 seconds -- even running with a light throttle. We will upgrade the tires and wheels very soon and expect to run very low 12s with street tires.

Pontiac G8 GT drag racing in car
My Pontiac G8 GT at Cordova Dragway. Runs were made during National G8 meet
September 2011. Mods are Volant intake, Vector Motorsports stage 1.5 cam
and tune, Kooks headers w/catted midpipe system to stock axleback mufflers.
Last run was personal best 12.95 at 109.8 mph on the last run. This was
with street tires 285-35-19 Nitto Invo, so not great traction, best 60ft is
over 2 seconds. Drag tires should help with that, hopefully.
Pontiac G8 GT 0 - speed limiter
Stock G8. was recorded in high heat and at pretty high elevation. Speedo
slows down after 100mph because it changes rates (every dash adds 10mph up
to 100. After 100, it goes up by 20mph intervals)
PONTIAC - stock Pontiac Super Duty 421v8/405hp vs stock Chevy 409v8/409hp on DYNO
WATCH THE VID TO SEE HOW CLOSE THEY Dyno TO THEIR FACTORY
405hp/409hp ratings. Growing up.....Pontiac/Oldsmobile old timers/EXPERTS
who taught me most of what I know, often told me Chevy rated their horsepower in a more
optimistic way than say Oldsmobile or Pontiac. I've even heard Pontiac
rated/tested their engines in a 100 degree room, compared to Chevy in a 60
degree room. These Dyno results seem to reflect
that some of what I heard was true. Both of these engines are great, but
the results do seem to show that Pontiac was not rating their horsepower worrying if it
would cause "songs to be written" about their engines .... like the great
song "She's real fine my 409"--(Chevy).
