with the sound reduction resonator off it makes alot of difference. stock the car is well-performing and quiet, this is easily changed to be the powerful beast its capable of being. the power is smooth,and can be hard to get used to using it properly see full Pontiac G5 review
2008 2dr Coupe 148-horsepower 2.2L I4
5-speed manual FWD
More power than other cars in the price range. Manual transmission and clutch feel good. Like other small 4 cyl, needs to rev to get into the power. see full Pontiac G5 review
2008 2dr Coupe 171-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
very strong engine, very usable power regardless of RPM see full Pontiac G5 review
2008 2dr Coupe 171-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
It was pretty peppy, but certainly no speed monster. Honestly this was the least impressive part, but the transmission and engine worked well together. The powerband was easy to find when downshifting. I was only short power when racing a Jetta 1.8t. see full Pontiac G5 review
2007 2dr Coupe 148-horsepower 2.2L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I like the way it responds upon acceleration and passing and the gear shifting is very smooth. It also responds well to minor engine tuning. see full Pontiac G5 review
2007 2dr Coupe 173-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
the power the 2.4l has is crazy. i put a intake a exhaust on mine and it dynoed 172whp gm rates these at 173 at the crank. on the highway or around town if you want to pass a car give it some gas and you will go right around them like nothing. see full Pontiac G5 review

Underpowered for size of car, more specifically the weight of the car. Other new cars in same class have 20-30 more horsepower for same or lower price see full Pontiac G5 review
