More Power For A 92 Grand Am Gt

My son wants to add power & performance to his '92 Grand Am GT. I can make my way around a regular motor pretty well, but once it starts getting all that computer stuff on it I get lost. His car has the multi-port fuel injected v6. Can he add a chip? can he add some sort of air induction system? ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANKS

Hit up www.n-body.net and go to the forums. The Grand Am, Malibu, and Alero are all built on the n-body platform, and that site is dedicated to them. The guys on there are very knowledgble about these cars and will help you out with anything you need.

Which engine does the car have? 3100, 3300, or 3400 V6? I dont think the 3400 came till later, but I'm not to positive.

The easiest thing you could do is a Cold Air Intake, and Exhaust. The intake you can get from several places: www.pfyc.com , www.rsmracing.com are just a couple, there are more I just don't know them.
The easisest way to do the Exhaust is to replace it with your favorite brand in a Camaro style muffler, single IN, dual opposed OUT (does that make sense?). And use 2 1/4 or 2 1/2 inch piping.

The chip can be reprogramed too: www.ase.com But it requires sending it off to them to get done, I believe it cost around $300

There is actually a lot you can do to these cars, just have to go to the right places. Deff go to www.n-body.net, we will help you. I am malibucdl over there as well.

If it has the 3.3 the easiest thing to do is swap in a 3.8 of the same vintage. The 3.3 is basically a "baby" 3.8. Then do the chip, cold air intake and exhaust. That's how I'd do it anyway, you can usually pickup a bent low mile '95 and earlier LeSabre with a Series I 3.8 at your local salvage auction for cheap. Most of these were"Granny" wagons so the motors weren't abused. I have a '94 LeSabre with 143,000 on it and it runs like it had 43,000 on it.

If you do decide to swap for a series 1 3800, try to find one with a supercharger, and make sure you grab the tranny, computer, and all the wiring that goes along with it.

Also remebered another supplier: www.mantapart.com
If I remember anymore I'll post em up.
