also want to know the same thing, my g6 is over fueling badly boost is down, pulling timing and has a rough idle sometimes.

There's a hole on the right side of the circular part of the PCV. Check if it's blowing through, block it with a finger and observe

Try this. Unplug the maf sensor plug.

Does it idle smooth?
