    wheels....19" Rims, Summer Rubber
    Engine....6.0L 361hp 385tq
    Trans.....6 speed Automatic

    RAM.......2GB ram ( have spare ram, but may change if CPU changes )
    Video.....(want onboard)
    Audio.....(want onboard)
    HD........500GB WD SATA
    DVD.......Pioneer DVD+-R

    ..........iGuidance 2.1.3
    GPS.......BU-353
    Display...Xenarc 700 TSV
    PSU.......M2-ATX 160w
    AMPS......Kenwood and Infinity
    Sub.......12" Infinity
    Speakers..2x 5.25" MB Quart Components, need another pair for rear doors
    Guages....4 Autometer Guages for center stack

    Current Plans -------------------------------------------------
    G8GT's with 19" wheels have no spare, so MB/CPU etc will be mounted there, along with the standard 'inflation kit'. The MB/CPU mount will be my first
    attempt to fabricate with fiberglass. Once I have the spare location complete
    to my satisfaction I will move on to fiberglassing the center stack. ( I have a spare center stack on order already ).

    I intend to glass the center section of the dash to incorporate the Xenarc and
    4 new autometer guages since I intend to cover the digital guages in the
    center stack.

    I am keeping the stock Head Unit as it integrates the Climate Controls into
    the 7" LCD ( non-touch ). The head unit has Rear-Aux inputs that I will
    feed the PC sound into.

    Asside from that I am gathering data as there isnt alot of available information
    on the G8, some information is common with the Holden Commodore but
    its not information I can count on.
