I dont think it matters which way you go except your paying $70 for a contraption to suck out your old oil when you could just unscrew the oil plug and drain it. Save your money and use it to buy an oil pan from walmart that costs only $6. They even have some with caps so you can take it to the trasfer station(dump).
As far as the filter K&N is probably the best filter out there, but its spendy, the only other filter i know of that is really good is the NAPA Gold. Costs around $8. Dont get the pro-select or the cheap napa filter. And one filter to stay away from is FRAM, those are bad news based on what ive heard.
Also, dont use ramps unless it has a really long incline because the G6's are low profile. Use a 3-ton jack and support it with two 3-ton jack stands so you wont get crushed if your jack fails. Remeber that the G6 sedan weighs 3,600 pounds, i have a 2-ton jack that struggles to hold the car up so i had to buy the 3 ton jack. Works like a champ.
