If where you live has emission inspection requirements it may cause you to fail emissions. However I don't think it's a real big deal other than that unless it starts cracking more or lets fumes into the car (obviously).

Thanks for the reply. I was just making sure that it was going to hurt the G6 before i get a performance exhaust.

Take a look to ensure that the moisture is coming from the crack. Almost all cars have a drain hole to allow moisture to escape. Also GM mufflers are stainless steel (low grade) and usually the outer layer cracks a few years before the inner layer does. If this explains the drip, you're probably good for quite a while. If the moisture is coming out of the crack, then your muffler is on it's way out!
