I was thinking of ordering a G6 GTP Convertible with the 3.9 227hp Engine.
I also know that Hyundai offers a smaller v6 that they use in the 2006 Azera
SE family Sedan.
That Hyundai 3.8 is a 24 valve 263 hp with 255 lbs of Torque. Its a smaller
engine and more advanced than pontiacs and putting out a lot more power at a
cheaper cost and better gas mileage. I want the G6 but later want to drop
the Hyundai engine in it, but want to know if anyone makes such a kit to
make it easier. I think this is feasible, but I also may just wait a few
more years until GM advances the technology of their engines.
Now that sounds just like the thinking of the good old days. How many of us
found ourselves in the relentless search for horsepower back in the 60's and
70's, and spent countless hours bento over engine compartments making Chevy
motors fit into just about everything else.
Alas - those were the good old days. Not so easy today. Things fit tighter
today and engine compartments are pretty much molded around the engine these
days. Then there's the whole issue of engine management. Engines today
have to be attached to the computer they were designed to run with or things
just don't go boom in the right order, or at the right time.
I don't believe there is a practical way to do what you suggest. Not to say
that with enough persistence and cash you couldn't make it work, but it
won't be worth the effort.
You shouldn't have snipped the rest of my post. You know - the part where I
said with enough time and money you could do it today. As to high
performance today - bah! Some come right off the showroom floor as real
high performers, but most are quite boring in the performance department.
Just like they were 40 years ago. Why do you think we all built motors and
plopped them into family sedans?
