I thought I had read somewhere that the Pontiac G5's with the 2.4 Ecotec had forged internal components. Can anyone confirm that? What years and models....
Brian, you're right. 'Found it on AlphaFab: "The early production [2006-2007] 2.4L LE5's are BOOST READY w/ Mahle hypereutectic aluminum pistons, forged rods, & nodular iron crankshafts”. I checked the invoice for my LE5, it is from a 2007 G6, built 09/2006.I read 2007 and earlier. This being the reason many builders were snatching them up and adding turbos to put them in sand cars.
LE5's have variable valve timing, but not direct injection. 'Don't know about the reluctor.How about the Pontiac G6’s... was talking with a friend that has 3 G6’s all 2009 2.4 Ecotecs (32k,53k & 60k). None of those should be direct injected? And how do you tell which reluctor wheel (7X?)?
