Welcome!! Dont waste your money on chips. They do not work for our vehicles. Youd have to have your computer tuned.

Crabs intake, sounds so damn good. Best on the market for the G6. Not too sure about installing in a convertible though. Ask Lampoon, the maker.

also what water said about the chips. Waste of money.

Look around the site, and G6performance forum for reviews and recommendations. You will learn a lot by lurking these two forums.

Welcome to the G6 world lol

Handling wise my suggestion would be to get a set of lowering springs, Koni Yellows, and adjustable endlinks... KYBs aren't going to be an upgrade on your shocks, and Ill echo what the others said about chips being a waste

Are the "Koni Yellows" shocks/struts, where do you get them for the g6 i searched the site and there were none, unless they are just for the convertible?

Konis take some work but are worth it. The rears are for a Saab 9-3. They require no modification and bolt right up like a normal shock. The fronts though are strut inserts for a Cobalt. They require some simple modification of your existing front strut to be inserted, but after that the installs the same as a normal strut. I'm pretty sure theres some pictures in my progression...
