Welcome to FP and the madness. As a fellow Michigander, I hope you will be able to make the Tri-Power Pontiac/Buick/GMC shows we have planned iin the Detroit Metro area for this summer too.

I am not entirely certain that Wilwood has a brake kit for the G6. I couldn't find one listed on either the Summit Racing or Wilwood's websites. You may need to call Wilwood directly if you are set on them as a brand. PowerStop does have drilled and slotted rotors, pads and some performance calipers for the G6 - available thru Summit. EBC and Stop Tech make drilled and slotted rotors as well. MGP makes cool colored brake caliber covers. However, I am not finding a large choice of multi-piston calipers like you might find for the GTO. Most calipers I find are stock replacements.

Hi Frosty, I have a busy summer planned this year for 2k21. However do you have more information on these events for this summer? 
 

Yeah, ended up giving up on my search because I didn't feel comfortable buying from a 3rd party website. You do have a good point though for calling them and seeing if I can get a brake kit customized for my type of car but highly doubt they will do it lol. I am currently looking for other brands such as brembo and powerstop. I've heard you go thru brembos quite fast and heard they don't last as long as far as I read. Also a issue I ran into they don't make any brake kits for my specific car.  Power stop seems more reasonable for stopping power, price and pretty much just more realistic less expensive than the popular brands. I am still currently looking to see if I find anything else but at the moment just seems more possible to put on my car at the moment so I at-least have something visual to look at and it's not plain lol. I will definitely check out those other brands too for brakes thank you for the feedback I appreciate it 💯. Eventually in the future I plan on getting Brembos custom made for my car or wilwoods.

Welcome to the site.  As Frosty said a few of us meet up N run together all summer.  Hope you can join us.  Join N watch the Great Lakes discussion at the bottom of the forum list.  Post any shows cruise nights ect for all of us to check out, as well as what we post.  I would like to extend an offer to join the Pontiac Widetrackers.  Short notice but we have a meeting Saturday at the Golling dealership on M24 in Lk Orion at 3pm.  Yearly dues are only $18.00 for the Widetrackers and also a chance to join POCI if your interested.  Very active club with monthly activities including our annual show the  DUSTOFF held in June.

The first event is the Widetracker's Spring Dustoff scheduled for Saturday, June 12th at Springfield Oaks County Park in Davisburg Michigan - hosted by the Michigan Widetrackers POCI chapter

The second event is Motor City Summer Round Up scheduled for Saturday, July 10th at at Baker's Restaurant in Miflord Michigan.

The third and final event is Bob Sellers Buick-GMC's Indian Summer show scheduled for Sunday, September 26th at the dealership - 38000 Grand River Ave in Farmington Hills Michigan

 

As JustA said, the details for each show will be posted in the Great Lakes Region. In fact, I have already posted the details for the Spring Dustoff show.

      As well with these taillights I also have to wait for these to come back in stock. As soon as I get my new brake system and new taillights I will definitely be uploading pictures for everyone. Same thing for these only sketchy websites have them in stock and I would rather be patient than get scammed!🗣👍🏼 I hope I’m in the right topic for this as well 😂

      Hey y’all been a minute since I’ve been on here I’m starting a new job soon and will be not be as active due to my schedule. I do miss having more time but money is more important at the moment. Quick little update I have been trying to find and buy these powers too sport upgrade for my car unfortunately only websites that have it in stock are sketchy ones. And I really don’t trust that. So right now I just have to be patient and hope they will be in stock sooner. Still trying to learn this website as well, it’s alittle confusing to me especially when I have barely been active on here in the first place lol! Follow my Instagram for more updates 🙏🏼 @g6.GXP

      Hello. I plan on buying a Grand prix Gxp. And I also plan on only deleting the muffler just for the extra noise. I know there is a drone but from my understanding it's due to the afm at highway speeds. I'd like to know the best way to do this cheaply and keep the drone to a minimum.
