Well getting a Vortech style supercharger will competley change the path that the intake takes. So no get the Supercharger before the intake.

also it dosen't matter if you have an auto or a manual the supercharger will work the same way.

I also emailed RSM and they called it a "tuner" part, which basically means that theres A TON of programming that will have to be redone inorder for the car to acctually use the supercharger as its intended to be used! As much as I liked the idea of putting one on, I dont think the proper chips and computers are out to program the computer to accept it!

From what I understand RSM Includes a reprogramed PCM.

However the one that came with the 3400's supercharger was crap.

"80+ HP gain. Includes Vortech supercharger,
all brackets and oil lines, belts and pulleys,
ECU programming, adjustable blow-off valve,
FMU, induction piping, and K&N cone filter"

all that for around 5K.....hmm

If you need that kinda HP gain you might want to look at selling your GT and buying something that has more power out of the box. $5k for a sketchy supercharger vs. $5k upgrade to something like the GP GT which has a proven track record.

If you're looking for speed in a G6, you could always buy a used or leftover one at a discounted price, drop in the blower, and be pushing more horsepower than a GTP for about the same amount of cash. Some people just like to unleash the potential of their vehicle.

I would have, when i went to go buy my coupe i was looking more in to GTP not the GT. I got my car for 24K and the GTP was just too much for me (in price). well, i am just a 18 year old kid who enjoys fast cars and i think GP GT would be too much of a family car for me then...

Hrmm.. shoulda waited for a 2007 solstice gxp. Those babies will be turning out 260hp and 260 ft-lb torque. 0-60 in 5.5 sec and looks a lot better than the G6 coupe imho.

Your not going to find to many people looking for a G6 also considering a Solstice.

wow, 3 very different cars with a wide range of pricing, if you're buying new. How did you arrive at that selection?

If you don't live in California, don't worry too much about CARB.

Unless, of course, you've got Nazis running your state emissions checks like they do out there.
