Hello, and welcome! Should be in the low 14's... I think like 14.3ish about stock time.

i dont think 14.3 is all that accurate. no offense intended there. because the fastest NA 3.6 vvt is running 14.20. but thats close. its probably 14.5 14.6ish?

eh not sure on that the highest ran in a tune is 93 octane. and dont get overexcited. there is not much out there for these cars unless you plan on dumping a ton of money in them like me and a few others. but they wont run all that great. there is only one that made it out of 14s and it ran a 13.86 and it was on spray.

spray 3.5L auto LOL and he said he got rid of it before he could tune it better. Aka before the transmission needed to be replaced.

making it a higher grade!.. duh.. lets see what happens when you add 94+100 and then divide by two?.. whats your average?.. not 94... hmmm?.. thats wierd.. must mean my octane level would average out higher too???.. duh..

going with higher octane fuel will be a waste unless the PCM has been tuned to take advantage of it. I would simply put some pump premium in there if its a hot day at the track. That might help the PCM keep from retarding the timing too much under hot conditions.

what are you looking for a body kit? youd have to buy it piece by piece. ask Pmagic he'll tell you how expensive it its.

Yea as far as I'm aware you can't just buy the kit. You would have to get each part one by one and piece it all together. As waterfowler said... P Magic is the one to talk to and it will cost a nice chunk of change.

not to mention every GXP part you buy for your car which is NOT a GXP is one less part we have available to fix our cars with.....my GXP had been hit in parking lots a number of times, and it seems that GXPs are always the magnets for the idiot drivers in the world to crash into we already have no more front bumpers for our car available, all of GMs stock has been used up, only place now is off a wreck GXP to get a front bumper......

if you want your car to look like a GXP then buy a damn GXP......itll cost you less to trade your car for a GXP than for you to put GXP part on your car.....plus then youd have leather seats, automatic climate, the best V6 GM makes and a 6spd auto,a LOT faster car.

JUST the entire front bumper, grilles, fogs ETC cost around $3-4K the side skirts would run you around $1800, the hood around 700 spoiler 6-700 the cheapest part the rear bumper $400........and none of those prices include paint or instalation which would likely run around $2500 more for that

There a companies out there beginning to make bumpers and panels that are certified to fit like OEM parts. Maybe worth looking into.

they make aftermarket body parts for every other G6, no one but GM has made GXP parts and the companies that do make the other G6 part say there not going to make GXP parts because there isnt a big enough market because there were so few GXPs made compaired to every other G6
