If you really want that fast a car why did u buy the G6?

Im not trying to be mean...I just dont understand why people want to dump more money into a car than it would cost to go out and buy a GTO...

Thanks for the Rely. The reason I got the G6 is that I loved the look. The GTO does not represent what I remembered what it use to look like, As in the Challenger and the Charger and soon the Camero. I have plenty of money to dump into it I was just wondering because I was handed this engine from a GTO and was wondering if it would fit. So if any one else knows if I can that would be great or where I can find that answer.

If you have enough money you can do anything you want... I have seen a gran am with a V8 and it had been converted to rear wheel drive... so it is possible. but the whole money thing comes in. and if you want the LS1 why not the LS7... 7.0 liter with 505 hp. that would be sweet!

The 5.7L LS1 will not fit in the G6 engine compartment. The better alternative would be to try the 5.3L V8 from the Grand Prix GXP. It is configured for FWD already.

If I were you I'd trade my G6 in and get the GTO. Just seems more logical than doing a whole engine swap and converting to the rear.

Thanks, I looked at it and it really does make more sense.

I know where your coming from, but as I stated earlier I don't like the look of the GTO. I really love the look of my G6.

Yeah the look of the G6s are real nice, but hey, GTO's are real nice too. To be honest with you, I would much rather have a GTO.

Performance Clutch?

Does anybody know where to get a performance clutch for the 3.9L G6? I have searched everywhere and have been completely unable to find an aftermarket clutch. I would like to get a stage 2 or 3 in ceramic if anybody makes one. I am guessing that they have discontinued the 6 speed and I hope this doesn't mean that there will never be performance parts offered. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

ls1 in a g6, that would be sweet. i was actually thinking of that the other day. i have a 98 z28 m6 and my wife has an 06 g6. but if you go with the 5.3, you can still do a lot to the motor.

Has anyone ever done a swap with the 5.3L LS4? I've been looking into it and it seems as close as I could get to a perfect matching V8. Also, does anyone know if there's a place to by that 5.3 motor new?

You would go through so many tires if you left it front wheel drive.
