Re: CAI update with stock GM part?

I believe that AEM also offers just the tube that goes between TB and airbox to eliminate the all the plastic in the intake.


On Edit: 21-8027DC AEM Brute Force Intake System $198.99...not cheap.

Re: New Tires - What Air Pressure to Run?

New Tires - What Air Pressure to Run?

So at 25K miles my Goodyear RSA's gave up. Not wanting to spend $200+ per tire for a new set of subpar tires (IMHO). So I started looking for something else. I found a Continental Purecontact LS in 245/50/18's with a V100 rating (100lbs more load per tire - .3" taller & .2" wider), speed rated at 14...

Re: Installed Rear Speakers

So, I am checking out the speakers and holes, can you actually hear anything out of the factory speakers now that you drilled the holes?

Re: G8 door panels

I too have a 2013, and I adjusted the volume all the way to the rear and turned up the volume and lo and behold I have speakers back there. You might try this too. Still tryin' to figure out what to do to get volume out of them, drilling a 100 holes in my rear panels to let the sound out just makes ...

Re: 2013 PPV Radio - have rear speakers that work,but....

I thought about just drilling holes in the panel in a circle, but that might look too cheezy.

I guess the aftermarket speakers lower in the panel is probably the way to go, besides creativity ain't my strong suit.
