Vector Motorsports G8 (No Converter Necessary) Cam Kit - Idle
VMS Camshaft Kit at idle. This kit replaces the AFM system on the G8 with heavy duty LS3 parts. We use a custom billet Comp Cam with Dual Valve Springs and Hardened Pushrods.
Peak gains were 67 HP & 57 LB/FT Torque. The car tested has Kooks Full length headers with HF Cats and a New Era OTR intake.
G8 with Vector Motorsports ECM/TCM tunes
This is my 2009 G8 GT. This is just basically to show how The tune will
chirp up through third gear. Mods are Roto-Fab intake, custom Exhaust, HSRK, catch can, and the Vector engine
and transmission tunes. Nothing really happens after the first minute, just
driving. Traction control is on, and I rolled into 1st to keep it from
spinning. Also shifted before 6000, it redlines at 6200.

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.
