    I received my Pat G tune this week! Now I'm itching to get the exhaust made up and wrap up the new lower radiator hose. A few more odds and ends and I can fire the engine up.

    I have 1 leaky AN fitting. Of course it's the one from the pump down to the new filter. Has anyone used a seco seal?

    After 5 years I can finally say that my G8 is officially mine! Made the last payment on her. Now if I can get into another job sooner rather than later, that would be fantastic.

    I swapped transmission coolers. New one is an earls temp a cure 19 row extra wide, 2" thick. P/n 81900. Thanks Greg@Pace for keeping me in the game! I already had a 4" spal fan, so I made a bracket across the top of the cooler to hold it. Cooler is bolted to the crash bar, just drill and tapped it 1/4-20 and used stainless hardware.

    I'm happy with how it turned out.

    I still have stock tstat in the car, and the cooler is routed in series with stock cooler. If this doesn't get temps to the 175-180 range, I think I'll either swap tstats or pull it out of inline with stock cooler.




    Yes I did paint the xrp an adapters black to match.
