not realy just a cold air intake and the strut bar
If your talking about the one where its jumping I made it in Photoshop. It was a ton of work....jedi gotta ask where did you get that little vid of your car done
I had my fuel injectors cleaned today thought it was time since im rolling up on 65k soon. I olny drove it home so I have not noticed a difference and im to sure I will but I keep up on my [email protected] The radiator is good till 150k so thats good for a while still. The tranny fluid is next to be changed out and Im not sure if this car has power steering fluid to be changes. The g6 uses hydraulic with electric assist steering.
Im also ordering new front & read dart overlays and new eyelids from our vendor the grafx shop.
So tonight I jumped on the car a bit and noticed the car is a bit more responsive in the lowend/rolling start take off speed. So I think it was worth it having the fule injectors cleaned. Well worth the $100 bucks to have them professionally done. I dident know that GM (as well most manufacturers) recomends that you have your injectors cleaned every 15 thousand miles. Im not sure I would do it THAT offten but every 20/30k couldent hurt. The reason you do it is that the gass leaves carbon deposits on the injectors and the hiles get smaller and smaller. Now this was not one of thouse kits that you put some shit in your gas tank. This is the stuff they hook up to one of your vac lines and fule lines. They run the car at 2000 rpms for 20 minutes till all the cleaning fluid is gone. Then run the car for another 5 to finish it up.
Worked on the car a bit today... I repainted the two front calipers they were all chiped up to hell. That took a long time since I dont have jack stainds. I had to jack up the car and and do one side at a time. That took alot longer than I thought it would. Im going to do the two back ones on my next day off but they dont need much work, just some touch up. I also replaced another fog light.... It just figures I replace one and the other one goes out like a week later. So after a month of not using them I finally replaced the bulb today. I also picked up a roll of chrome door edging to redo my chrome lower grill mod. I noticed the other day the old door edging was really beaten up. I also picked up one of the headlight restore kits for when my new eyelids come in. I dident get to it today but no big deal since the eyelids have not come in yet. My headlight lenses arent too bad just a bit not super clear anymore. So before they get too bad Im going to fix them up. I have never used one of the kits for it before and hope it actually works like they say.
Out with the old.
Glue, glue, glue everywhere and darn these thing just came of in billions of pieces! :blink: icard:
You can see how bad the lenses were F'ed up when I got the glue off where the eyelids were. :blink: I had no idea they were that bad!!!
all cleaned up!
Drivers side all cleaned and polished! Pass side not even touched yet! Wow what a differance!
I have to tell yea this isent easy to do and the amount of scrubbing I did to get the hazs off was just silly!!!
It just took all friggen day but well well well worth it.
both sides done.
New eyelids, front & rear dart overlays on.
I also did the chrom lower grill mod over last week since the strips were beaten up.
(pic taken today after the lights were done.
I got sick of people always asking me why I had a Saturn logo on my car. So I replaced it with the GM logo.
front calipers repainted (last week)
My back is killing me fron being hunched over the car all day and my hads are sore fron scrubbing. I must of polished each light 15 times and was scrubbing hard at it too. Not to mention how friggen hard it was to get the eyelids off and all the glue leftover. Nothing a beer or 3 cant fix I really dident even think my headlights were that bead till I got my eyelids off. Funny how you dont notice how bad something gets over time till you do something about it.
Yup I found ANOTHER mural for a backdrop for the G6 and you know me I cant resist a great backdrop.
The first two and the last one are my favorites and could be a good calander pic
yea I knew my eyelids were in need of replacement but had no idea my lights were as bad as they were till I took of my eyelids. It was well worth all the effort it too to restore the lenses and replacing the eyelids.I'm gonna have to do some work to my headlights, My eyelids are beat to shit and you can tell the lenses need work in the light of the HIDs.
thankshey Jedi, looks great!!!

Well the car hit 70k this week and she gave me a present to mark the occasion .........
I dropped the car off at Goodyear to have a leaky tire checked and fixed. I get a call and I was like oooooooooooooooooow come on WTF, dam it ill be right there.
there goes all my mod money for an exhaust now I did some web searching and found a brand new rim for $200.00 bucks. Which seems to be a good deal since every used rim I saw on the web was like $150.00 or so and to fix the rim was like $175.00. I know some of you are going to say I should of gotten aftermarket rims but everything I like is $600.00 +. The rim should be here in 5 days or so.
HA ha ha ha!!!!
I swear I have picked up some power with this. The but dyno thinks the puck up in the power band is much faster. But we all know the but dyno is not too reliable. I jumped on it a bit a couple of times and I think its starting to break in and get a bit louder and throaty. One time I punched it doing 40 and got up to 80 like nothing. But who knows it could just be me but I dont think so......
I dont think my iPhone does not do it justice or captures the sound well at all.
Its much deeper, throaty and has a nice little grumble to it than is sounds.
