Horsepower!

Looking for upgrades. Evidently no K&N filter out yet either. Anything else?

Not much you can do to make a G6 gain a lot of hp unless you figure out how to fix all the mistakes they made.

Yeah and you should enjoy that part of it never having to buy a new one. And it is so easy to clean as well. Just remember to clean them after you are done driving for the day because they need to to dry overnight. Then the next morning put it back in.

I think "mistakes" meaning, this car is going to be a real B*TCH when it comes to any kind of power mods. Even the cheap do it yourself ones won't work, like a K&N panel filter and cutting the front bottom section of the airbox out when the G6 feeds from a small hole through the fender well. Another is a resistor in the IAT sensor plug, can't do it on the G6. Anyone try to remove their MAF screens yet? You can't do that either. Even the muffler design is a pain in the azz for a do it yourselfer.

You got it.

That horrible intake design alone is priceless.

The IAT mod isn't a good idea anyway. I learned that as a Ford man.

Leave your damn MAF screen and IAT sensor. No point is touching them.
