That's a nice car, dude.

At least you're bumpin' the trunk.

Now that's my kinda car. One of the few good looking designed models from Pontiac in the late 90s. Except for the firebird Pontiacs were far from what I'd call good looking.

If you dont mind me asking, how much did you get it for?

10-14-2008, 10:04 PM
Supercharged 3800 Series II FTMFW!!!

Oh yeah, I love Grand Prix', all of them. They are nice looking and yours seem to be pretty fast too, it got the same 3,8l V6 like the 04/05 Impala SS. Great car, one of the best Pontiacs in my live.

Why does everybody drive such nice cars...:'(

I raced against one of those at the local 1/8 mile track a while ago. We were door to door the whole way. Those things are quick.

It's a nice Pontiac dude & how much is it worth currently?

Those normally sell around the $5,000 range, for ones in good condition.

3800 is also a police car motor, no wonder why it's so durable. They need to be like that for the heavy use of police cars. I didn't know much about Grand Prix/Grand Am but a supercharged cop car motor..... that thing must move! Looks awesome in jet black as well :)

took a run on the highway today for shits and giggles, man does this ****ing thing fly.

got a rear valve cover leak that I can't be arsed to fix because I'll be ripping off the intake manifold and supercharger thanks to GM's shitty gasket design, and one of the lifters is ticking, so quieting that involves pulling the valve cover anyways.

Nice Pontiac, but what sort of engine does it have & is it powerful?

Nice Pontiac, but what sort of engine does it have & is it powerful?

Supercharged Buick 231 V6, rated for 240hp and 280ft lb from the factory.

It now has headers, a 3" offroad downpipe, a fenderwell intake for power adders, and new struts and springs, thicker solid sway bars, and poly motor mounts in the suspension department. ( ( ( ( ( ( ( (

Smaller pulley or GTFO.

how about you sell it to me? <3

Really nice car, now it only needs RWD and its perfect :D

Smaller pulley or GTFO.

I'd love to but unlike a good deal of the L67 modding community, I just don't go slapping pullies on without a proper tune and scan for Knock Retard. My hope is sometime this summer to book a spot at the local dyno tuner who knows the 3800 and bring a few small sized pullies with me to figure out what is safe to run without the result of putting a piston into the oil pan a few months down the road.

That and I have a brand new Gen V M90 waiting to be bolted on in the upcoming weeks.
