  • Newellzie's 05 G6 GT

    Hello everyone

    I have been on here for about a year and have been using this forum to help me mod my G6, so after a year and a decent amount of changes on my G6 I thought I would post my progression, so here it goes... Pretty much from day one!

    Here is how she started!



    Then I installed HID low beams





    Next was cold air intake and 8.2mm blue spark plug wires with chrome separators




    I then deleted the hose that went from the PCV valve to intake, added a breather and installed a little HKS Kompressor, got it for 30 bucks thought I would try it :P



    There's the blue breather



    Then I got some sparco mats cause they make your car go faster :P




    Next I thought it would be cool and inexpensive to polish my alternator, again cause it makes it go fast! Lol



    Next was oil cap breather from Milzy's, drilled and slotted rotors, ceramic pads, and complete exhaust system



    Bank 1 header



    Bank 2 header



    Complete system



    Then it was time to lower her and space out the rims



    Before



    Front drivers side



    Rear drivers side



    After Eibach drop and 25mm spacers



    Driver side front (not settled)



    Driver side rear



    So by this point I had her lowered and spaced out and it looked nice, I also did a tie rod end, all of this I did on a Thursday. So I went in to have her aligned on Friday. Saturday I had an event to go too, after this event in a rush to go home (parents were on me) I tackled a median. :/ needless to say it wasn't great my shock ended up bent



    However because these shocks weren't even a week old and they had a 18month warranty I got it replaced for free! Score aha. Just meant I had to do the work all over again lol and get it realigned. So I ran with bad camber for about 2 weeks and needed to replace 2 tires because of the incident but w/e life happens.

    Next was wiring in my subs I had in the trunk for 7 months lol



    Then I added the sway bar end links



    This pretty much was how it stayed for the rest of the summer while I had a good time with friends built up some more cash and enjoyed life aha which now puts us at more recent times

    I next bought rims with winter tires on them
    (More current picture didn't take one when I got them)



    I then built a custom box for the w3's I upgraded too in late summer



    Now for my most recent addition tinted tails, they have a light smoke, I want to go a little darker but for now here they are!



    So other than stating I put in the metra kit, that is everything I have done to the car so far, however I have more to come, I have a WAMS Tune on order, going to be getting Racingline STB and MMI, going to do a big 3 upgrade and installing a comp car audio system, along with possibly a H/O alternator, I have new rims just waiting for some new spacers to change my bolt pattern, and I'm thinking of doing some CF vinyl wrap along with maybe the brembo upgrade, but for now here's a sneak peek for what lies in store!

    Complete comp audio system


    Dynamat



    New rims

    Interesting sub box. Are those the ports at the bottom for either side? Or is it just one big box with shared ports?

    Also I like those new wheels lol

      It's one big box with shared ports but I did put a wall between the ports and separated them to go to either side, but the box is not separated in the centre between the subs. I guess I coulda just made one port but I like the dual look, and also in the centre between the ports is where I have the cable running for the 150w inverter.

      And Ikr! I love these rims I can't wait to put them on, just waiting for a little more summer and my new spacers cause they are actually 5x114.3 but I'm already running 25mm (1inch) spacers so I just got new 25mm spacers to switch my bolt pattern.

                  Yeah thanks! There's a few cosmetic things I still want to do and I want to get a grounding kit and STB, I might also re work my cold air, but she is very close!

                            So check it out this weekend I re tinted my tails and tinted my headlights...

                            Tails



                            I really like the tails! However I don't like my head lights, I'm still posting them cause this is what I did

                            So I started out by cleaning my lights using the ol toothpaste trick, it doesn't make them brand new but the looked good for 10 year old assemblies

                            One side



                            Both sides



                            Then I did a light tint, it's hard to tell in the camera but it look splattered and like crap so I went to a darker tint to fix it

                            Light tint



                            Darker tint


                            Now I do like the look of the dark tint, but visibility at night sucks and there fore it's too dark. I can run with my brights on and nobody flashes me, it gave me as much vision as I had with my lows prior to tinting :/

                            So this means new he alight assemblies, which means I need your guys help! I can't decide, halos are cool but hear bad things, but there are also two different types of halo assemblies

                            This one
                            http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=310959187849
                            Or this one
                            http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=141099922017

                            Are either good? If not what about these
                            http://www.protuninglab.com/20pog6recrhe2.html
                            Or these
                            http://www.protuninglab.com/20pog6recrhe.html

                            Or should I just stay stock, the ones above are basically oem so I think those would be cool if I can't get halos.

                            So anyway what do you guys think I should get, kinda need to know quick tho cause I want to get rid of these crap headlight assemblies I made myself now LOL!
