Suggestions on quickness

Okay so I am looking for ways to make my 6 quicker. I want the 0-60 time faster and a better response time when I step on it. I already have a magnaflow exhaust, crabs o3 and have order the fpu. I also have removed the intake resonator. What else can I do? Any suggestions will help. Thanks in advance!

How much would the WAMS tune help? Is it worth it?

I ordered it a while ago, but haven't gotten it yet. So, I can't say from personal experience.. But everyone that has gotten it says they love it.

What engine do you have? There isnt much for aftermarket support for this car, nevermind the performance aspect of it. You've basically have everything, intake and exhaust. Just missing the tune, which mitchd17 already suggested

Does it make your car a lot quicker? Is it worth the money? And What are the other 2 mods that are in the top 3?

It is worth the money in tenfold, it "wakes" up the engine and changes shifting points, making it use the full power of the engine. It is a noticeable difference, according to the computer calculated MPG, in the thoughts of gas mileage. As for the power HP gains.. Wams claims to give a 10-15 hp boost. So that, plus intake and exhaust could possibly add an 20-25 above the stock 3.5V6.



1.) The bass
2.) My summer rims (see progression page; mitchd17 G6 GT)
3.) My EE
(I still love everything I've done to it)

Would WAMS affect a factory warranty? If I'd ask a service writer I'd know the answer.. Yes. I just wondered if anyone ran into a situation.

Technically speaking, Yes a WAMS tune would void your warranty... If they find it. You can do what I did and get a replacement PCM/TCM sent to you so you can just swap it, If you need to bring it in for dealer work just put the old one back in and drive it on over.

If there's no reason for them to plug into the car and check it out, then you shouldn't get caught... Such as tire or brake work.
