Chips!



(Money better spent on those)




As for turbo, if you had a 2.4, maybe. 3.9, sorry no

Thanks! I had a lot a time on my hands when i was out to sea for 159 days straight. Apparently it came from Michigan. I was also thinking of taking the exhaust and bringing it out the sides right before the tires any recommendation on that?

I think its a G6. Not a race car. No point in re-routing the exhaust. All the chips you find on the internet are garbage. Get ur ECM tuned from WAM or Vector. Buy a CAI. Injen, K&N or CRABS. You could attempt a turbo or supercharger but ive read that its been attempted but no one knows if successfully. The best thing you can do is the stuff i mentioned above and get a new exhaust system. I hear GT-R is real good.

I think those may actually be hurting your performance.

Without spending BIG bucks you limited to a tune (not a chip) and an exhaust.
You said you already had an intake....

G6 Lover is on the money. The G6 is not cost effective to put it into the musclecar arena. Its cheaper to buy something else that already is.

However, you can upgrade the motor mounts and with a quality tune and a good exhaust you can make the most of what you have.

The headers (OBX & whatnot) for our applications have very bad reviews.
