Hey UG. I just purchased a 99 Silver Grand Am, and I have a little money laying around, figured I'd put a little into the car, since I'm fine for college, and I'm staying around home, anyway.

I was just curious as to some unique things I could try. I have a 1000 dollar sound system already in there, and some seat covers / steering wheel covers that all match. I don't wanna really trick my car out like you see on Pimp My Ride, rather just give it a little color, and some identity. I'm getting a small neon lights set here soon, and XM radio, too.

Just curious as to some gadgets/toys I could throw inside or outside of the car to make it look a little better..

Any part of the car is fair game, really.

Ideas???


EDIT: Oh I also have this like disco ball thing that makes my car look like a party at night. It's pretty cool. Stuff like that is what I'm hoping you have ideas of.

Get some decent aluminum wheels. Not chrome, they tarnish too easily. That cleans a cars looks up a whole lot.
Get a cold air intake to help performance. Its probably the cheapest way to increase both hp and gas milage.

ummm a ridiculously large unfunctional air intake at the front?
oh and also a huuuuuuuge superbird style spoiler and possibly some pneumatics

Dual turbos actually, gets rid of the slow accelleration



Grand AM Gt's aren't that slow. You'd be surprised. But how much would this range?

Paint Job. or decals/graphics. Try to find a body kit for it. Maybe some TVs in the trunk??

Give me some specifics. What type of design do you think would look sleek for a Grand Am???

do you have emissions inspections in your state?

Well, if you dont, or if its just a visual inspection (in pa its only a visual inspection for cars 95 and older, but idk about where you are) you should gut your catalytic converter. That will bring your hp up a good bit. They restrict the exhaust flow a lot, so just get rid of its innards and leave the shell there.

GPS

but if i were you id
buy another car as a back up. a 500$ junker, as long as it runs and keep it incase something happens to your other one.

how many miles does it have on it?

From what I briefly skimmed over i saw a twin turbo system would cost around 5k?

Upon further reading, a supercharger is generally easier to install, and without modifications to the turbo, it produces about the same power surge. Turbos can be modified to produce better results however. The downside is that turbos are insanely difficult to install, while superchargers aren't as hard and can easily be done by a novice mechanic

Upon further further reading, I find a twin turbo system is most likely the way to go. If you want to spend those extra bucks on getting someone to install it for you.
