CruisinG6's G6

Although I've owned my car from new for two years now I'm just getting around to making a sort of build page for my car. But that doesn't mean I'm just getting around to modding it!
A slightly different progression thread is also taking place over on G6Performance.com >> G6P Progression

My 2009 Pontiac G6 Base 2.4L l4
4 Speed Automatic

Here's what I've done!

Performance:
Powertrain:
- Cold Air Intake
- 93 Octane Tuned ECM
- Tuned TCM
- Twin Transmission Coolers
- Engine Torque Damper

Handling:
- Racingline Strut Tower Bar
- SSC Lowering Springs
- Kumho Ultra High performance All Seasons

Appearance:
- Eye Lids
- Light Smoke Headlights
- DRL Delete
- Chrome Lower Grill Tips
- 5000K HID Lo Beams
- 3000K Halogen Hi Beams
- 3000K Halogen Fog Lights (aftermarket OEM install)
- Front Lip/Chin Spoiler
- Stock Wheels Painted Metallic Vintage Copper with a White Stripe
- Calipers Painted Black
- LED Courtesy Puddle Light
- LED Parking, Brake, and Turn Signals
- 20% Tints all around, except windshield
- Blacked Out Third Brake Light
- Light Smoke Taillights
- Debadged
- Mud Flaps
- Rear Roof Spoiler



Inside:
- Dynamat Entire Trunk
- 2 12" Subs
- Tweeters to improve sound quality out of the trunk for showing it off
- Copper vinyl wrapped shift knob accent

Here are some pics I took after some mods




















Welp! I've probably posted the hell out of this one for now.
There's more pics of it floating around the forums here if you want to see more.

I have plenty more ideas in mind. Just need time and money!

Here is a video of my Courtesy Light add-on.
It came out exactly how I wanted, was easy and looks great, and is actually quite handy!


And here is a video of my neon subwoofer rings.
The subs are a couple of 12" Visonik's that I got all in a kit with everything, All I had to add was the inline fuse...
They've lasted quite well for the 7 years I've had them and they do the job quite nicely for what they are.

I've since blown these. The switch got knocked on when I went on the track with my car, ended up blowing the transformer. Oh well.

no, it's just two strips of really bright LEDs with the self stick 3m on the back. I just stuck it on as if it was underglow and wired it to my dome lights.

Last night I installed my 6000k HID Lo beams and my 3000K Halogen Hi beams.
As well as started my DynaMat install

Light's on without HI's


Light's on With Hi's ...the HIDs really make it hard for the camera to pick up everything...



And this is all the dynamat i've done so far...



Tonight i'll probably be working to finish off the dynamat at least all around the trunk

not extremely bright, Probably as bright as normal high beams. just yellow

They're 3000K 65W 12V Halogen bulbs.




And sadly today we've been getting some rain... and the courtesy lights on one side are beginning to short out about half way down the strip. Looks like water got into it somehow. So i'll be pulling that apart tomorrow and looking for a solution as well as something to prevent any further damage. I've been driving in quite a bit of rain so far without much issues. But i guess something was bound to go wrong

Well I installed the rest of my Dynamat. Unfortunately though it looks as if I only had enough to do my entire trunk. So that's all I could do.


BEFORE:



AFTER:



It didn't go down as smoothly and straight as I wanted. but oh well. I made do with what I had and frankly It did a great job with my subs. No more echo and it seems a lot clearer and crisper. But It looks as if i need to raise my levels a tad haha

that sucks, hopefully it's a simple solution.

i have a 10'' ported box in my trunk, and it rattles like hell, what did you do to help your trunk from vibrating off the hinges?

Well first I went around and found all the little rattles. In the tail lights. License plates. Third brake light. and basically put little rubber pieces in everywhere to stop it from moving.
As well as interior lights and such. The less movement the less rattle. I even went as far as removing the rear bumper and putting rubber slabs in between the bumper and energy absorber.

Then I got around to doing the dynamat. Which made a big difference in the performance of my system.

There is still a slight rattle type noise, but that's coming from the little vents that are there to relieve the pressure when you close the doors.

I would suggest letting it bump. then go around and listen for what rattles, and then try to brace it with your hand. (trunk closed) I found rattles in the license plate, I just put four screws to stop that. Rattles in the brake lights and third brake light i stopped with some pieces of cardboard and little rubber twist strips from menards
