There's no replacement for displacement. Buy the smallest car with the biggest engine. like a 74 Chevy Vega stipped down to 1800 pounds with a 500 ci blown rat with 900 HP.
That should satisfy your need for speed. And it would be cheaper and easier than turbo charging a G6 and would run a 7 second 1/4 mile.

You would no doubt shit your pants and pray to God you don't die the second you step on the gas


Dilemma solved....

Its just cause it seems very overwhelming. If you plan on stripping all the luxuries of the car, you can do it easier. But nobody wants to do that, except me. I plan on making mine a full on tuner. And I will supercharge(top mount, no procharging) it if it kills me. Guess that makes me crazy, but I want a bad ass g6, no luxuries, no bs. Go ahead and make fun of me, but i'm still doing it.

This is true, but it would cost more. Adding up the cost of trans, diff, suspension, chassis upgrades, all other drivetrain upgrades, and all the other things that would keep it stable and a little reliable, would add up to over 10k. Plus the engine isnt cheap. probably 7k+. Idk if turbocharging a g6 is a 15k project. It may run high 13s, mid 13s at that. And if its that much, for 1 sec off a quarter mile, I'd have to say go with the vega. GM power.

think we need a turbo section. All we hear about is people wanting or in the process of adding a turbo on the G6 but haven't heard of anyone who has. Just 2 people. One with the turbo under the trunk "which prob didn't do any good but make the service lights come on and burn out the tranny" and one installed right but haven't seen or heard it run.

Im sure it has been done..but honestly not every tuner who owns a G6 is a part of this forum. So we agreed its possible its just going to take more money to do it. But im sure there are more people out there like myself and BensG6GTP, who are willing to put the money into there car to make it a tuner. And making a Turbo/Supercharger set up is just the first step

Please record, take pictures, and a how to if it works. You could be making a lot of MULA (MONEY) off this. But, goodluck again and please keep us updated. I wouldn't even sit here and argue with anyone. I'm sure it can be done. It is just really hard, time consuming, possibly a waste of money, etc.

Nothing is impossible or unreasonable when you're 19 ;)
Lol at 19 your just more willing to accept the challenge. The way I see it is that anyone....most/some people can go out and buy a faster car. But a person who loves there car will do what ever it takes to make that car look good or better despite what anyone says. Im sure there was a time when people said that about the Nissan Sentra (My old car :D) till one person did a VQ a realized it was a way to increase the hp of the car tremendously.

But Dillon I wouldn't call it a waste of money. Some people are into performance while others are just into making there car look good. And at the same time "ordinary" ppl could look at the mods on your car and call it a waste of money. Different people have different preferences

That is great and all that you want to put a turbo on your G6, Hell I would love to put 2 on my GTP, but the thing is there just is not very much support out there for these cars. The few people who have succesfully moded and bolted 1 on have had problems with tunning the cars to make them run right, the internals of the motor and trans are not strong enough to support the boost, and if you dont want a beefed up Vega, go out and get yourself a Cobalt SS that comes from the factory doing low 13's and there are all kinds of support out there to make them even faster. At 19 you will live and learn, I still am at 30.
