Theres a ton of aftermarket radios, and some reviews on here. Just search around. But if you're gonna get a tune (programed), and you plan on doing the intake and exhaust, get the intake and exhaust first, because the tune needs to be programed for it. The best intake is Crabs. (crabintakes.com), the best tune is WAMS (just google pontiac g6 WAMS), and as for the exhaust, that is all a matter of opinion.
If any question come up, try searching first, and if you can't find it, post it. There is a large amount of knowledge on this site, and everyone is here to help each other.

Crab Intakes

G6 WAMS Tune (My Favorite Mod. I Love It)

Magnaflow Catback - Made for the G6.
A lot of people have replaced the resonator and muffler and have gotten good results. I just did a resonator delete.

you will love crabs they bring life to a dull engine bay and a smile to your face when you press the skinny pedal.
and if you paint your engine covers its even cooler check out my thread for a engine bay shot i don't want to photo bomb your thread

an intake alone will make your engine sound and feel a lot nicer! Getting one like a crabs can help make it look realllllly nice

been a little since i was here but yeah im hoping that will improve WOT takeoff. as it sits now if i take off at a quarter to half throttle she gets up and goes. but if i nail it, she creeps off. seems a little backwards. i was told that the TCS is to blame for this but i havent tried this with the system off

oh, If you plan to launch it at WOT you should turn the TC off. It'll let the wheels spin and let it take off. You'll know when it's interfering, it'll flash a light and say something the DIC. haha

Which motor do you have?

ah i tried it this morning against an eclipse, TC was on. light turned green, i nailed it, got a mild takeoff with no alerts from the system (eclipse was half a length ahead of me by the time mine decided to wake up and run) and then after a second it sparked to life.

i got the 3.5L

An Intake can very well solve that. I can't say for sure. I just know that once I installed an intake onto my 2.4 the off the line launch was snappier. After the tune it really launches!
