There isn't a whole lot performance wise. No supercharger. And gm ground effects imo is the nicest. But very pricey.

All that you can really do to a V6 is a CAI and tune. Anything else will have to be custom-made.

check out milzy motorsports. I have yet to contact them but they do have ported and polished intakes, connecting rods, looked like a cam also for the 3.5 motor. They have a g6 section but i need to call him and figure out if they will work with the 3.5 that we have in our cars since its slightly different that the 3.5 in the 07 and back i believe

awesome. well i checked and it seems as if the ported and polished intakes will definitely work with the LZ4, the cam and heads that they have only work with their crate 3500 engine.

MMS is great, I used him for my LX9 grand am

How much power you looking for? Can always do a custom turbo kit, but besides that no S/C. Do headers,heads,cam,intake,exhaust,rods all that good stuff, maybe be in the 250-275ish range (if they have 201hp like 06 does)

You can only pick two
Cheap,Fast,Reliable

That will answer all of your questions

I think that HP range is about what most people want from these cars. I just want to figure out what a total cost would be lol

I think the headers I priced for my GA work for the LX9

You can go to Pacesetter, they are cheaper, not sure how much power they will give.

Headers-$1000
P&P intakes-$300-400 maybe
CAI-$100

Cams,rods all that stuff will add up. For everything, looking around $2000-3000.

Cut corners where you can, bring intakes to local machine shop. Build your own CAI. Get a pacesetter catback versus borla. The real money will be getting the heads done and the headers/downpipe.
