G6 2.4L Intake Problem Rises Again!!!

Recommended Posts

I know you guys have heard this one 100 times, they don't make intakes for my 2007 2.4L G6, but what can I do. I have a cone K&N filter that will go on the stock plastic intake, or some said there was a guy on here used a civic short ram intake that works well on his G6. (can't find post by the way) Just need some tips to get all I can out of the G6 4 banger. A lot say it will throw a CEL code as it did do on my 05 Sunfire but its still running strong 16.30 @ 84.31mph e/t (automatic) after 30,000 miles. Some say I can use the 2.4L Cobalt set up, witch don't look like it will mount. What can I do guys?

And what do you guys think about E3 plugs? :lol2:

Auto Zone is your best friend for this, you can custom build your own intake, or even try building one with plumbers pipe that would be heat resistant and give you great airflow :lol2: As far as the spark plugs, they are good plugs from what I've seen, but you shouldn't need to replace them now...

I will try that, but how do I get past the air temp sensor situation? and will it cause CEL probelms?

Or should I just give up and get a K&N replacement job cause the make shift intake wont be worth the trouble.

E3 plugs are teh gheyz. Stick with either AC Delco Iridiums, or NGK Iridiums.

One thing though, I love how easy it is to change plugs on the Ecotecs.

Thats a turbo and tune thing Right??

You WILL throw a CODE and it WILL shift like SHIT!! I did it from a long time. In the cold it messed everything up and car would just die out and not stay running. I took intake off and ran no problems. I kept my code reset whenever it came on and it would shift ok. I tried just about everything making no changes to the car and still threw a code. I got my "tune" and was supposed to work with the intake it also did not work. I used a Cobalt 2.4L and it bolted up fine(rubbed on hood a little). My advice after spending some time and money into it DONT WASTE YOUR TIME!

If you want all the detail let me know and i can type everything out later

For the Air Temp sensor, Auto Zone sells different pieces separately, so you can build you intake the way you want to where you want, so you can have it in any place you can fit and they have the piping for the sensors to go too ;) And if all else fails, and it doesn't work, return it :cheers:

If I had a 2.4 G6 and really wanted to mod it, I would save all my money and buy the M62 supercharger kit. Easy 240hp! And thats just the kit. YUMMY!!!

No room, that's why no one has thrown a super charger on their G6 :agreed:

yeah i was looking at the cobalt injen kit which doesn't need any mounts if you use short ram version and will def work, but its not a turbo thing just a stocker g6 2.4. You still say no go on kit? What about a cone and just removing the box and placing the cone on plastic intake tube? or is it even worth it.

ok Im here.

No dont do it its a waste of time and money. I had tired defferent set up and everything. The problem it the air is twrilled through the MAF and it gives it a false reading. It will give you a lean code. It will shift very ver yvery hard all the time as soon as the code become pending. I carried a scanner around and kept resetting it and drove on it for like 6-8 months. When it got cold it shifted even worse and would die out. i tried for a few days took off intake and put on stock and ran prefectly fine. I tried letting the code sit and see if the computer would learn and no nothing. The computer would dump as much fuel as it was prgrammed to and still ran lean. Depending on how much your willing to dump into your car i would like to see someone try(since i cant) the adj Fuel Reg. i never looked into prices or anything. I went to dealer and they couldnt reflash my computer after they said they could. I went to my dad freind who owns a shop and all his mechanic were testing stuff and everything they said adj fuel reg should work but not really sure until your play with it

You basicallly better leaving it alone if you dont wana dump some good money into it. The intake did make a difference it just drove like shit.

Nope I tried

I never looked into them I just talked about it. My guess would be summit racing or something along those lines. I can talk to the mechaincs and see what they think but as long as its adj i dont see y it would matter
