I'm Fairly certain the 2.4L l4 in the g6 is the same as the one in the Soltice...I found a turbo kit that works for the 2.4L Can the engine that they put in the g6 handle a turbo without much work needed to the internals?

Just curious. Can I just through a turbo on, increase power, and not blow my engine?

Another day, another turbo thread.

The engine isn't what the weak point is, it's the tranny, also not having space in the engine bay, also that noone else has done a turbo that has been proven to work, etc. etc.

bainecotec on G6Performance.com that did a custom set up on his ecotec. Because the tranny is the essentialy the same as the v6 (gear ratios a little different) the torque/hp gains wouldn't be as damaging as if the gains were made on the v6s. However Bain is shooting for 275whp, so he will need to beef up the tranny.

That said, if you are shooting for big gains, the price is going to be very high, and would be more cost effective to go with a G8 or other performance car.

As far as the solstice turbo kit working on the G6, I am unfamiliar with the engine codes, but my assumption, (for what it's worth) is no, because Solstice is RWD which would leave me to believe the heads and such are slightly different. But I don't know anything.

Bain stated that his custom setup ran around 2500-3k for the motor work and ecm tuning.

Here's a link to that thread.

Good luck!

:eek:Really?! Is that just for the 2.4 trans, or is it for all the g6 trans.

Depending on what I decide i want to do to this thing, I might look into this further.

Now only if I had money.:beer:

Yes ZZ performance has the whole kit, drop 2500 in the trans + 500$ for the axles, and your good to go unless you want to do the rebuild yourself.......

ZZ Performance sucks. I wouldnt buy a thing from that company.
Ive delt with them in the past and they are HORRIBLE. Dude.....do you
work for them? As those are the only people I know who recommend them.

:barf:

No I don't..... I just got some dog bones from them in the past..... They did have the fastest grandprix....

The only other option I would trust is intense racing, honestly zz's sites is easier to navigate and you can direct link it.....

Yeaaaaaah no. LOL Ask the old school GP'ers if they would ever use them. I had 8K in parts last less than 2000 miles and NO refund/warranty ect...

I know for the 04+ Grand Prix Intense was the place to go to grenade your engine :eek:; I think they did better for the 97-03 community. And I never dealt with ZZP but have heard generally good things about them, Grand Prix-wise.

Can't vouch for anyone's G6 stuff tho :confused:

EDIT: except of course CRABs :D

Hey man be sure to rebuild your tranny and you should be good.

Maybe get a trailer to haul that turbo around too.

I estimate about a 945,997+HP increase. Might want to invest in a larger gas tank too.

With that thing you might get 20 gallons to the mile on a good day.

You gonna run 91 or what?

No way, run e85 or race fuelz. And make it a VTEC!

So if i had 1000$ to blow on my car and i wanted to do some good mods that won't break stuff in my car or need me to get a new tranny what would be good?
I'm assuming 2.4l? If so exhaust or tune/CAI.

ok.... if i could do it all over again i would buy the 2.4 G6 because then you can do the LSJ Supercharger Swap. It is SUPER COMMON on the Cobalt, Ion and G5 Boards. it would cost about 1500-2000 to get the parts and they are BOLT ON. also becuase teh 2.4 is tunable with HP Tuners you will be KILLIN IT!!!

srsly. no sarcasam here. if you want boost and you have the 2.4 LE5 you can do a SC swap.

Just Youtube LE5 Supercharged or 2.4 supercharged
