Scarred's G6

As I stated in my introduction thread, I got the car new in '09. I just started modding my G6 a few months ago. I have PLENTY of plans for it, but its going to take a lot of time and of course, money! So far I have tinted windows, tinted tail lights, glasspack exhaust, resonator delete, and plasti dipped hubcaps. I have some Eibach lowering springs, just haven't had the time to put them on yet. Here are a few pics.

How does the exhaust sound? I though about doing it as a cheap upgrade but didn't want to invest the time or money if it sounded like crap

Thanks! I really like how they turned out. I want to do my roof too, but I much rather have it painted instead.

The exhaust sounds great. Its loud outside of the car and not so much inside, and that's how I like it. The only flaw in the sound is when I cut the A/C on, it sounds like a tractor

Do you have some pictures of it I could use as reference to make mine? And I don't use my a/c a whole lot cause the weather is nice here.

I'd be more than happy to take some whenever the weather clears up here. It will more than likely be Monday, but whenever I can get around to it, I'll pm you to let you know when I have them posted.

Okay, as promised, here's pics of my exhaust and resonator delete. Its pretty much a simple way to have a good sound from your G6 without spending so much money. Its not a clean/beautiful setup, but it gets the job done. I used the stock piping along with some new pipe just to replace the old that was cut off. I also replaced the resonator with a straight pipe. I do plan on replacing the existing muffler with cherry bomb later on. I just love the sound of a glasspack lol

Stock muffler and resonator cut out


Straight pipe welded in place of the resonator (Front then Back)



New muffler welded in place of the stock muffler along with new piping ran out

Was there any certain reason that the pipe in place of the resonator is a little smailler than stock? and it looks great. Besides welding, about how much was cost?

The only reason the piping is a little smaller is because that's what I had. No particular reason. The price was a little over $100 I believe. I'm not sure on the exact number. A buddy of mine did the welding for me. I priced the same amount of work at a local shop and it would be a little less than $200. Either way, its pretty cheap. The price will probably depend on your location too. When I had exhaust done on my truck, it was three times as much or more. Of course, it was true duals too.

Well it looks really good. I want to do mine soon and hopefully i will be able to. Although i dont think i will weld mine to start with just because they dont have welders on military base auto shops around here. And was it just a stadard glasspack or was there a specific one that you wanted?

The one that's on it now is just a standard one. No specific name or anything. It got even louder after a couple of months, but I still want a better tone. That's why I'm switching to Cherry Bomb later on.

4Banger... I would go with Cherry Bomb right away if you're wanting a glasspack. If you want to get an idea of what it would sound like, there are videos on YouTube of both the 4Banger and the 3.5L with Cherry Bombs. I'd record mine, but I don't have a camera, just a smart phone. If I recorded it with my phone, it would sound like I recorded it with a potato lol

okay that works for me. I will definitely be investing the time and money into this soon and i will let you know how it turns out. I might even be able to get a camera with a good enough mic to record how it sounds.
