1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan
I've had the car for almost 2 years, it is a 5 speed and i luv the car to death, i've had problems all the time but nothing to major all the time. i've replaced the tranny and clutch once and it ran amazingly since. I street race the car, i have a custom exhaust on it, custom intake, and a lot of interior work do to it. they come with the Z24 racing engine (stock 150 HP) since all my mods i have figured that the car has about 185 hp now and amazing take off and torque. i have a lot of corners around here and the car cornered well before hand but now i have replace all the control arms, sway bar mounts, tie rod boots, and end links and the car is amazing at cornering now. All in all i luv the car.
the sound of the engine with a can on it is amazing it has the deep throaty bubbling sound, it doesn't have the farting bee sound to it.
really no improvements i think, maybe make the firewall more accessible so the the amps battery wore can go through the fire wall. and make the engine a little bit more open to give it as much power as possible stock then the next owner con improve it more.
