It def could get expensive. My plan is to win millions playing the lottery, make the G6 a project car, drop an LS1 in it, and watch the shocked faces of the people i destroy.

SCRAPPED BLACK 06 GTP Coupe 6 Speed Manual
Performance- Flowmaster muffler, Cherry Bomb glasspack, JET PCM, K&N Typhoon CAI, Racingline STB, self made underbody air scoop
Appearance- 16% tint all around, debadged with the exception of blacked out Pontiac Arrowheads, black Altezza taillights
Audio- 2 10" Kicker Comp subwoofers powered by 1200 watt MA Audio Amplifier

Expensive and useless. The money is better spent saved up so you can trade in your G6 for a GTO.

Anyone can buy a GTO. Sometimes you just want something unique, that no one else has done.

Exactly. See I have an 07 3.5l auto 4 spd and I'm seriously thinking about doing a swap for the 3.9 and 6 spd manual. Would that even be possible? I could purchase the motor and tranny and other stuff needed to perform the swap I could just turn around and sell my current set up to make up some of the $$$ spent on my upgrade. So would it be possible to swap the 3.5 auto with the 3.9 6spd manual?

Also Im hoping there is a way I can put that F40 manual in my car with the 3.5 I have. Would the f40 tranny mate up to the 3.5l since the sport trim has the same motor setup it's just manual. That would suffise for now until I figure out how I'm gonna get that 3.9l in my car.

I can see where you are coming from. I just didn't know if you were looking for performance or something unique. Of course, why else would we mod our cars if we didn't want them to be unique?
