If I had a bigger heated garage I would repaint the entire car with this product. Though the exterior was upgraded to match the increased power under the hood, the changes to the interior were only in the area of gauges. From there a dual-outlet exhaust system featuring 2-inch pipes routed spent gases out. My bud has an 99, but I like this style. We are also having problems with cold start, only occasionally after car has been sitting for 8+ hours - car sputters like flooded, smokes, will not idle.
I found a motor and transmission for it at a junk yard. One team may do the exterior design, another the interior, and yet another the powertrain. It was the right color for my Pontiac I want to congratulate your company the product that you sell. Torque steer was minimal and the Torsen limited-slip differential could be felt when making slow-speed turns. All of this upgraded equipment made a huge difference in power. With such a solid foundation for a performance powerplant, it seemed natural to put a supercharger on this engine and take the performance to another level. Basically, the ducting and filter that integrate with the hood is an intake system itself.
That can cause serious problems and is common on older cars. My mom gave it to me when she got her new car. Many of the changes made to the engine were in the interest of packaging and efficiency, but power was significantly increased as well. Likewise, the tranny shifted at exactly the right time and did so with firm, authoritative control. We've run gas through, thought at first it was 'bad gas'.
The larger blower allowed the maximum 8 pounds of boost to be generated at a lower overdrive ratio, which reduced blower speed and charge air heating. Pin-on Pontiac Grand Prix hoods are generally only comprised of a hood skin just the top , are held down using pins, and have to be lifted off to be opened since they don't utilitze the factory latch mechanism. Despite the fact that the 4T60-E was only rated for 275 ft-lb of torque, the transaxle held up admirably. Any good muffler shop can help you out there.

Boost was held to a conservative 8 pounds due to the use of production pistons.
A 20 year old car and the paint was a 100% perfect match, you cannot see where I did my touch-ups at all. Also, my outside door handle on my passengers door finally broke, but this car still has quite the get-up-and-go. I can't find anything aftermarket for my car either. Also like everyone else, I love it. Not weather related, has happened when it was garaged. The answer is this: Most of the vented hoods on the market are not functional.
My blinkers give me a tough time, and it's not the fuse. There are a few companies who do in fact make functional hoods. This abundance of power was transferred to a modified 4T60-E transaxle that was upgraded with a prototype Torsen limited-slip differential. The most obvious change was the prototype ram-air hood. Doesn't happen always, but seems to be doing this more frequently. A set of keys and the remote control also survive. The brake pads and rotor warranty just changed at auto zone fyi.
This is a great car to hang on to. Suncoast Creations, for example, is a company who makes functional ram air hoods that come complete with the intake ducting to integrate with the hood. I've done some research and everyone I talk to says its the intake gasket. Have it removed or replaced if it is not flowing freely. I've found some after market things for it and I just found some headlight covers for it at auto-zone. We also sometimes get asked by a customer if he or she can put on a functional ram air hood and work that in conjunction with an air intake.
The valvetrain was also redesigned to withstand higher engine speeds. That being said, there might be a small positive effect by simply letting more cool air into the engine bay, even if it isn't directed.

At 13 it is just primed and everything still works great, except the armrest - it was open and I turned around and hit the top and it broke off, drop a line if you are looking 1.
It handles great in the winter! The engine was transplanted using off-the shelf mounts and dogbones which connect the engine to the front of the unibody structure from the Regal. You have to keep pumping the gas pedal to keep it going. The reason a person might want to buy a pin-on hood is that it is substantially lighter than a bolt-on hood. With V6's like this, there's no need for a V8, the 3. With the addition of the supercharger, intercooler, and exhaust upgrades, the engine power was boosted to a full 300 hp at 5,500 rpm with 335 ft-lb of torque at 3,500.
