hey i have a 2009 g6 gxp it is automatic and my dashhawk says it runs 14.3 and 0-60 in 5.1. i am stock by the way.

my friends who have a cobalt ss supercharged and dodge nsrt-4 both don't believe my car runs that. one guy has 300whp in the cobalt and the srt-4 guy has 400whp and they both said i can't run 14.3 or 0-60 in 5.1. cobalt runs easy 12's and srt-4 is in the 11's. i think i can get low 14's easily since i have 260hp. what do you guys think my whp is if i dyno'd

i ran 15.6 at 92mph at the track and think i can run what my dashhawk says. dashhawk has an accuracy of +/- .5 seconds respectively. they laugh at me and keep making jokes at me

what do you guys think?

Tell your friends that your G6 can run neck and neck (at the least) with a Dodge HEMI Charger R/T. But I must say the 5.1 is impressive if that's what it's saying. I pulled all of my 0-60/quarter mile specs on line which are saying 6.1 to 6.3 (0-60) which is about the same as the HEMI Charger.

There's a post in the GXP forum about it.

This car is/was a sleeper.

I just recently bought an 09 gxp and i think that your dashhawk is probably off by a second or so.. stock cobalt ss's and srt4's usually run in the low 14's.. I think these gxp's will run high low to mid 15's

you ran 15.6 at 92mph ???

3.6L/252-hp*/251-lb-ft* DOHC 24-valve V-6 (this is at the crank BTW not the wheels maybe [email protected] the wheels )

Your trap speed is high which means you launch was bad keep trying.... look for high 14's on a good day and sticky front tyres....

Yeah I kinda have to agree and say that I think it was off by about a second. I have been in a GXP and my modded GTP. If you could run those times you could keep up with my Solstice GXP when it didn't have a tune. Hands down the solstice is a lot faster car on the butt dyno. Also I thought the GXP stock had 252 hp.

Nope it's the G6 GXP. The G8 "GT" walks all over the HEMI Charger in a mere 5.7 seconds. It can damn near beat the SRT-8.. Again this is the G8 GT.


I raced a HEMI charger just a couple of months ago on 8 mile rd (yes THAT 8 Mile Rd... LOL) and he didn't stand a chance. A close race but still.

Hi guys, I'm new with this forum. I have an 08 g6 gxp I think this car is pretty fast. cobalt ss and srt-4 are different in size with g6. but this car beats hemi engine easy. I've tried to pull it with my friend's 09 challenger r/t and he couldn't take me from the first gear. so I think it's not really fair to compare our cars to those little once by judging from 0-60 or 1/4 time only. we have a lot more!

Must be the stroke that gives the GXP that extra umf

You're right I paced a Challenger once on that same 8 mile road and I notice the take off was kinda slow. But once I beat that Charger I knew the Challenger would be easy picking because it's alot heavier. In my opinion the [email protected] rpm's in addition to the weight of the G6 makes it a comparable opponent on the road. Not the king of course.. LOL!
