My 2008 G6 GT coup

This is my first thread ive been looking and reading alot on everybodys 6's and they all look amazing. Modding my G6 is been something iv done from the beginning and iv really wanted to keep going with it. So far iv done a front pontiac decal, hammerhead spoiler, CRAB intake, and a set of red streetglow.For me its all about making my G6 my own and setting myself apart from the pack, and just sticking out! Let me know what u guys think, im gunna post more pics as i progress.


Thanx!!!!

Hellz yeah! Off to a great start. Time to clean up that engine bay. It's looking rough.

I'm not a big fan of the giant decal, but that's just me. You should get us a rear picture of your car and the red streetglow. Gotta see that spoiler from behind right?

Thanx guys. Ive heard mixed reviews on the front decale. Some say it looks dumb but most really like it. I lkike it because when someone i know is driving down the road they know its me! I like sticking out like that haha Ill work on getting pictures of the back and the red underglow. Iv been finding it hardf to get a good pic of the underglow tho.

And the hammerhead spoiler, i couldnt tell ya lol I got it installed for me at a garage. Didnt wanna risk screwing something that major up.

Great looking vehicle! I was in the same situation - I ended up adding 'eyelashes' to my head lights (taped off along that line and bodymatched the color ) and then went with the GT-R. Can't wait to see the progression!

Or if you have a good exhaust shot in the area you could explore replacing from the cat back with a glass back in place of the resonator and a 80 series flowmaster for the exhaust. Have the exhaust shot custom bend the rest (make sure they use mandrel bends instead of crush bends!). You might just be able to save enough to do both! Granted I know the owner - but that is what I was going to do with my G6 when I bought one but instead I'll be doing it with the Grand Am I just bought after I finish stuffing the new motor in it! (which just so happens to be from a G6!! lol)

I'm not taking anything away from the GT-R, its an awesome proven design and system that's easy to install. But there are plenty of others to replace their exhaust with other systems such as the one I mentioned!

But, go with what YOU want - not what everyone else tells you. Unless your just plain making a bad decision that's going to make you lose power!

Actually my first exhaust replacement was in fact just that.
I ended up swapping it out for GT-R. World of difference.

So believe all you want about doing your own thing but I would have saved allot of $$
had I done the GT-R from the get go.

I have a hard time believing that another exhaust system wouldn't yield the same results. Perhaps left untuned, the GTR ends up working better then another system - but other then that scenario its in everyones heads. (The I have it it so its the best mentality)
