Spray-On Power

Zex introduces its custom-fit nitrous system for the '08 and '09 G8 GT and '09 GXP. Using the company's patented Zex Active Fuel Control module, which adjusts fuel enrichment based on bottle pressure, this system is one of the most sophisticated wet nitrous kits on the market, and it's engineered to be completely compatible with the complex OE throttle-by-wire electronic throttle body. This system also incorporates an electronic throttle-position-sensor switch for consistent and button-free wide-open-throttle actuation, and a nitrous-management-unit bracket for quick and easy engine-bay mounting. Zex claims it will add 75-175 hp to your G8 and takes approximately two hours to install. The price is $575. Zex; (888) 817-1008;
