Did they provide a transmission that can handle the ponies? Looks good though, damn.

I'd definitely hit it.

Everything I've been reading says it gets the new Tremec TR6060 that replaced the T-56, which is in very high demand and why a 6 speed manual trans option isn't available for the first run of G8s...GM simply doesn't have enough of them to cover all of it'* performance cars(or so I've heard).

....Or the BMW'* that have them as well. Maybe not this one, but BMW has been using GM trannies for a long time now.

The G8 makes me sad.
I look at all the work I'm potentially doing to my car and I think, wow it probably still won't come close to the G8 :(

I think you need to look at things a little differently. There will always be another car that seems to "out do" what we have. This is just a part of life. I look at my car as just that... mine. I've put a lot of time and effort into it and enjoyed just about every minute of it. What I know is that it'* a lot more "me" than anything else out there. I can take pride in what it has become and how it got there.

It'* okay to look around, dream about what you could have and strive for more in the future but minimize what you're doing. Every mod, every addition will bring you knowledge and experience you can take forward. You'll get a lot more personal satisfaction out of what you achieve than what is provided to you.

Enjoy your car, make it you

I have no choice but to think that

And you know what they say, don't name it or you'll get attached to it.
God bless, Shadowfax
