Will it limp???

Hi all! I was lucky enough to pull a 2.4 throttle body and intake manifold from a 2006 Pontiac G6 the other day and have been doing some research on installing them however one thing I keep getting confused on is if installing these parts before having a tune will make the engine run in limp mode.

I've heard a number of people say that the throttle body will but the intake manifold will not and a few people saying that it doesn't matter either way. The trouble is most testimonials I've heard are from l61 owners and I don't know is the lap will act any different.

I know eventually I will have to get a tune but I'd rather wait when I have new headers and downpipe to drop the money.

On a side note will the lap stock intake fit the 2.4 throttle body?

Thanks for any help!

Your current intake should have the dual bolt pattern. Just bolt it on your LAP manifold and try it. If it throws you into Reduced Engine Power (REP) just put your old throttle body back on and unplug the battery for half an hour.
EDIT: actually the throttle body, if it is an 06 probably won't fit your intake. You need the 6-pin throttle body with the dual bolt pattern.

No, the manifold won't throw the throttle related codes or put you into REP. The throttle bodies may or may not. It really varies car to car. My 2008 went with the 2.4TB for months before I tuned it. My distant friend's car went into REP the instant he stabbed the throttle. His was an 06 though.

Fantastic! Thanks for the help!

I found a 6-8 pin adaptor on zzp to fit the new throttle body but is the issue that the 2.4 throttle body won't fit on the 2.2 manifold and the 2.2 throttle body won't fit on the 2.4 manifold because of the bolt pattern?

Once again thanks for the help! If everything can be bolted up I'll do what you suggested and see if it throws code when hooked up. Either way I may end up keeping the 2.2 throttlw body on for a little till I can get the adapter.

Your 2.2 throttle body should fit fine on the 2.4 mani. So yeah just bolt it up to the 2.4 mani and see what happens lol. If not, wait until tune then put the 2.4 tb on the 2.4 IM.

Just an update

I put the 2.4 throttle body and on today and got a whole lot of zip. The engine wouldn't even try to start with the new throttle body on. I take it this means the one I pulled is DOA or the harness adapter I ordered isn't working. Not quiet sure what to do next.
