First off I would like to say hello everyone. This is my first post on the site and im new to the community. I decided to drop by because I am now a proud owner of a 2009 G6 GT and am looking for some good performance upgrades. Im looking for the number 1 intake preferable ram air because I drive mostly in Florida and NJ and with cold air I am more likely to suck up water. I am also looking for a Exhaust. I was looking at the GT-R but all the posts about it are old and dont know if it is outdated. Any advice helps and thanks in advance

Sincerely,
Waldron.

First, welcome to the boards! I also have a 2009 GT, so - have fun finding parts. Lowering springs, brakes, throttle body, headers.. all go up to the 2008 but not 2009 (i'm not adventurous enough to 'try' them first) so please, keep me updated on what you find.
On the boards here I've been talking with Lampoon, he makes the CRAB intake which truly is your number 1 solution for intakes - little over 350 for the full setup so it is pretty expensive but I've been trying to have him make me one myself - I think he's been busy, have not heard back in a week or so but once i find the details I'll let you know.
The GT-R exhaust appears to be the best option for our cars, not outdated just yet haha. My issue is from what I have heard/seen they have some back pressure issues but I have been told the excessive crackling and popping is nothing to worry about. Needless to say I have not put one on yet, but I also have the 4door - not exactly the hot rod LOL.
As I said, welcome and keep us (pm me!!) updated on what you find.

if you want to go ram air look into MPD hood. As far as exhaust..ive got GT-R and I love it. Ive never had any crackling and popping..unless i downshift at high rpm's. But I also dont have a problem with backpressure. They modify the muffler to keep backpressure until you hit higher rpm's.

Yeah looks like I will have to get the GT-R. I have to get a new bumper to fit the dual exhaust though. This project of mine is gonna become quite pricey haha.

I didn't want to start a new thread so I'm jacking this one.

My buddy has an R32 which stock sounds bad ass but he show me this video of it with a Magnaflow.


I really want to get a GT-R but can you hear the nasty cracking in high RPMs (which you dont hear in the R32) even after the break-in period? Any one with a 05 G6 sedan has a clip of there setup?

Oh if the G6 had a God, its holy trinity would be : CRABS, GT-R and WAMS....


Personally i am not a religous man, so i say : full length intake, your own blend for exhaust and a true dyno tune. This way you can rest assured by COMPUTERS of the real HP/TQ gains... Not this "seat of the pants" horse hockey!!

Yet i am shunnedby the gods, so what the hell do i know. Lol

Just an update. I just installed the GT-R exhaust, its the m-f truth. Why didn't the G6 come with it? Hell why don't the G8/Camaro sound this good!

Its quite a bit of $ but I'm 100% happy I made the purchase.

I'm on the waiting list for the Gt-R, is it pretty over the top as in at a stop light it sounds b!tch or is it more once you get on it is where it shines?
