well, im not gonna bash you, because ive been wondering since the cobalt and the g5 are so compatibe. wonder if you could swap a g6 v6 into our balts. that'd be wild.

Seems it would be easy... as the optional engine in our cars, is the standard engine for the G6.

Anything is possible if you have the time and money and knowledge to throw into such a project.

That being said, the physical mounting wouldn't be the issue... Its the electrical that you will want to bang your head against the wall over. These new cars do not play very nicely with engine swaps.

That being said, it'd be much easier and cheaper to build up the L61. There are tons of go fast parts for the L61.

I've mentioned it many times here on YC. I'd do it if my car wasn't a daily driver. If I keep it long enough maybe I'll do it someday.

I didnt know the Balts or G5's had an optional V6 engine package.
he's talking about the 2.4, which is in the base model g6


and it wouldnt be worth it to do a 3.4 or 3.8 swap, not at all.


neither is doing a N/A build on the 2.2 or 2.4 hahaha

:) i know someone in my town who drives a turbo'd 2.4 g6. it has the sexiest manifold omg

Someone on the "other cobalt site" a while back, was doing a SS/SC build in his garage, but he was making it RWD with a Chev S10 Axle assembly in back and still using the Rear suspension set up, but chopping out the torsion beam just using the "trailing arms" and then a centering bar. I never saw the end result, but it looked cool...

Now if it can be done RWD in these cars, then for sure you would be able to fit a V6 or even an alcohol hungry Blown 383 Stroker motor...

that would be badass, like they always say "anythings possible with enough time and money"

I remember on my old second gen Jbody forum guys were always dropping 34-3800 series engines in those cars for dirt cheap and those things would fly once it was done! but electrical issues werent so much in those cars.
