Some of you may remember me... couple pics of my Grand Am...

So far the mods are pretty slim... more will be coming tho...

Different spoiler, 35% tint, new tires... and keeping it clean lol

Slotted and drilled rotors are coming soon, new exhaust tips, along with a steering wheel with the radio controls.

I have more mods to go on it... as the funds become available, i'll post pics as i go.

Oh and this pic... couple months ago... lady in the wrong lane... I was not happy.

I don't know as though I could be happy in a car, well not everyday anyway. I wouldn't mind a weekend car, but I just miss my truck or bike.

All that damage and the hood wasn't even touched... i was hoping it was to get the ram air hood too, but nope. I didn't have a chance to talk to my body shop guy before the insurance inspector came out to look at it, otherwise i would have tried for it lol

I had a 2000 Ranger XLT Sport 4x4 before the explorer...



Miles were getting high, tranny was having problems (and was out of warranty) so i got rid of it while i could lol


I like the grand am... im trying my best to make it not so much like a "chic car" lol... the ram air hood and exhaust tips will help.

Nice gagt. The SC/T spoiler looks alot better. You should check out grandamgt.com and gaownersclub.com. I'm on both, my name is 03 SC/T. Here's a couple pics of mine.

What motor is in that? 3100?

Hopefully you replaced the upper and lower intake manifold gaskets already...

If not check on both sides of the motor, you'll see coolant coming out right below the throttle body and below the power steering pump..

I knew you had the explorer, never knew you got rid of it..

As you can tell, i got rid of the ranger for a even worse gas hog... a ram.. lol

Rocky

PS- if you are leaking coolant, i can probably hook you up with doing them for cheap... i do 2- 3 a month

All 99-05 gagt's have the 3400 motor. As long as his is a 03 and up he shouldn't have problems with the LIM because in 03 they changed it.

Im on both... posted pics on gaownersclub yesterday too lol My name is the same on both as it is here.

I like your car... i tried finding one like it so i wouldn't have to do all the mods, but when i was looking, non were available for the price i could afford...

Wouldn't u know it, about 3 months after i got my car, one popped up... same color as mine, for what i paid. I was not happy lol

Rocky... i should be ok, i knew about those problems before i bought my car... and just in case... i bought the extended bumper to bumper warranty. I have that till 75K miles, so before that hits if i don't have any problems i'll have my pontiac dealer check it out lol

Thanks again guys :)
