My 09 G6 GXP

Recommended Posts

Here is my new to me 09 Performance Red GXP

This was from when the dealer let me test the car.

After I signed paper work I brough it home, cleaned it removed all dealer advertising and the front license plate holder.

Word, GXP sedans FTW!

What's the plan for it? Lots of potential from the LY7 under the hood.

I hate the hammerhead, I may end up getting a 09.5 spoiler and replacing that one and using it on my fiance's 08 GT.

I don't think i'm going to do much to it performance wise, K&N drop in, tune, and GMPP exhaust. Just tired of dumping loads of money into cars.

GMPP exhaust is weaksauce. Magnaflow or go home. K&N drop in filter? Real CAI > K&N filter. Fact. Then a tune, and you'll have more fun too. yup.gif

Chris is a little pushy, you just gotta get used to him and know how to handle him :lol2:

As for the new 6er, it looks great! I've never been a fan of red cars but I think GM and Pontiac did it right with the reds they chose for the G6! As for your plans I'll just say with all that you have said you "could" spend a little more and get what Chris said. Either way this car has a lot of potential and will serve you well ;)

Plus I agree on the hammerhead, I like the lip spoiler 10x better!

the 09.5 spoiler doesnt really do it for me, but thats just my opinion. I do have teh regular GT spoiler as an add-on like the one here, but if i could have done the hammerhead (mucho dinero) then i would have.

I personally am not a fan of spoilers on our cars, well the coupes lol but there are some exceptions like Joe's and I wouldn't mind the lip spoiler but I don't think I'll do that. For the sedan I think the lip spoiler is the only thing I like on it. I absolutely hate the huge GXP street edition hammerhead with the 3rd brake light in it. The small one Joe has is the best version of it.

I'm curious too. A DOHC V6 has more of an exotic sound with the right exhaust, especially with headers.

Pushrod motors, maybe. But the DOHC motors are a different animal from the LA1's we're used to, Tom. :lol2:
