Not sure about the tune but if could, can you post pics of your progress? What are you planning on doing for the tranny?

And yet another man steps up to the plate to watch his dreams of a "turbo" being dashed by reality. Hell if you can do it, congrats. I won't be in for a week so it'll be interesting to see how well, or bad, this will turn out.

I don't know where you live But a dyno tuner can solve your problem,

Go here(link below), find you nearest shop, call them and ask about a custom tune for your car. Should run from 300-700$, Well worth it IMHO, Diablo sport tuners, HP tuners, And other pre tunes are good base lines But usually have your car running vary rich for safety. But a Dyno tune can be done real time, and perfectly dial in your car and make sure its done right with no other issues, also many place offer a lifetime free service i.e. free re-tunes and such.

Now I'm not trying to advertise here this is simply a link to find YOU A LOCAL DYNO TUNERE/SPEED SHOP, use your judgment and research before letting anyone work on your car.

You will find they do not support the G6 platform.
There are only 3, in my 5 yrs of experience with this car, that
do tunes for the G6.

Westers is up in Canada, Vector and the last is Chris White.

They will need your car to tune it. HPTuners does not support it. Chris wrote the tune for Vector so go to the source. He is on here at GTPPrix. Contact him and take your car to him with lots of cash and Ill bet he would be glad to help you.

No one else does it. Do like MJ says and go to your local places like that and listen to them laugh at you. Try it and if they say they will then post up when they do because not only will they get no help from the software people (its now unsupported remember) so they will be navigating tretcherous ground blind. I recommend you have the car tuned by people with experience tuning the G6.

I wish you luck as once people find the only way to tune it is HP and that HP doesnt support the G6 anymore then your screwed outside of the 3 who have navigated these waters back when it was supported.

Chris is also the least expensive but you will have to take him your car. Lots of time, expense and quite a PITA when you can go turbo a different car for 1/2 the hastle.

Hense....no turbo for the G6.

Dont believe me?? Go to the source and ask them: http://www.hptuners.com/forum/

I already did and Im sharing that knowledge with you now free of charge.

Why would they laugh? Why would they be guessing? That is what the dyno is for.....HOw do you think Chris an others did it? the only difference is that they have mad generic pretty safe tune that they can than send to everyone.

I have had my car tuned, in fact i have had all my cars tuned..... I don't see how you can dismiss something without even looking into it....

My main point is to use people who tune the car on a regular basis. not someone who never does it. A turbo tune is not a caned tune. He would have to take the car to them. I never advocated a mail order tune on a turbo.

Just because someone has wrenches doesnt mean they are qualified to fix your car. Get someone who has done it before...ON A G6.

If that is negative then so be it. ;)

New to the site

Ok so I apologize in advance if this isn't the way to do it but I just joined the site and I guess I’m as slow as opine but I can't seem to figure out how to start a new topic.

Any way this kinda relates I have a 08 3.5 G6 GT coupe stock except for tint.
I really want to toss some mods on but as of yet can't seem to find any thing to major. I was told by a friend that the old Grand Am 3.5l had a supercharger option. Does any body know if this would bolt on the G6 3.5?

I was thinking that since the G6 replaced the Grand Am it could be a good possibility

Ciao

I'm take the flip side of that, What if it's a company who has done so many turbo cars it's not even funny...... And there primary focus is turbo vehicles?.

I happen to have said company vary near to me lol...... They did an excellent job.

But here is my other thing taking what you just said what makes you qualified to use an hp tuner or something similar? Something you have never done? wouldn't you trust someone that does it for a living more than yourself? Now I'm a do it your self, but somethings are left to the pros especially when the tools they use cost 10k +.

Yeah that's exactly what I did. GM does a free one time turn and then that's it what the hell I took the free turn then after that when they started to warp again I just changed them out for ceramic

ok so next question WHERE the HELL!! can i find rims this bolt pattern on the G6 is a pain only the colbalt is the other car that has the same pattern so I was told by my dealer and so far the choice I have for rims is VERY slim like 5 types all look like they belong on a van
