I'm trying to look into a current list of mainly performance oriented mods for the V6, and I quickly came to find that there are very, very few.
I've based everything so far that I've found off of jrc1989's post from 2012, but it hasn't been updated since.
I was hoping to make/find a comprehensive list of mods that is current, as I can't find a complete exhaust system still available, as well as the fact I can't find a place willing to ship headers to me.(Oh Cali)
As so far, the list that I personally am working from is as follows.

G8 Tune and Throttle Body-
Overkill Tune: 600$
K&N Cold Air Intake: 331$
Overkill Throttle Body: 250$
Exhaust System: ???
Pacemaker Headers: 450$
NGK Spark Plugs & Coils: 53$ & 339$

Anything I'm missing that could help a lot? Before anyone asks, I'm not a resident of California, just on orders here, but headers and CAI are difficult to get shipped.

Yeah this is one of the reasons I've left my V6 stock, there's not the options and gains available that there are for the V8s.
Look for Les on this board, not to may have done as much as he has on this board to a V6.
Another would be ChristoJesus, I believe that's his screen name, he has done probably a comparable amount of work.

CAI, performance exhaust with X pipe and a tune. The tune helped immensely. I thought about headers, etc but....Na... I'm happy with it as is now. Good luck to you!

I did the Solo Performance cat back exhaust. Very happy with it so far.

I am still about, I've not gone through with any of the mods yet as the G8 is my daily, the playtoy ends up getting most of the spare money, since it enjoys breaking much more than the G8, I put it on a nearby shop's Dyno mostly for shits and giggles since we were shooting the **** and were comparing our dailies for the hell of it, it turned up right around 200 for both HP and TQ, mind you, that's completely stock, since I doubt NGK Coils and Iridium Spark plugs help HP and TQ, if you're looking for exact numbers, I can't offer, but roughly 200~ for both HP and torque stock, we'll see by the end of this year if I end up going through with my bookmark tab and give the 1500$ G8 the mods I've found since.
