On one hand I agree with The Old Guy....but then again I know a couple serious Grand Am enthusiests (sp?) who I hang out with who are rarely or never on this site..... Not everyone enjoys or even ownes a computer.....They would rather be out working on the car....Then when they check back a month after posting and see a bunch of flame posts they are like.....Screw the internet! Ya know?

Some people (like me) are just stuck in front of one all day at work and post to keep time moving.....dunno!

I agree with you, except this guy and I supposedly frequent the same track, on the same nights.....I notice every GA that shows up.

But if he is out there.....I'd love to see it, because I want to know why you'd go through the trouble of doing a S/C and then put a Jet Module on it. And no PnP Intakes????? Kinda make me go ....hmmmmmmmmmm

:::CHIME::OK OK OK HERE I AM TO SAVE THE DAY:D i have seen this car,i posted months ago about seeing a red gt on 77south when i rode up i thought it was stock so i didnt pay much attention, then i noticed (blowngt) on the plates i waved or whatever, i noticed gauges too ,other than that it was pretty stock so yeah i have seen the car

Blown Gt
09-28-2003, 06:05 PM
Yes I remember see you on 77 south and I had not gotten the supercharger yet. I know you all are saying a bunch of **** about me like saying that I don't have it I am just trying to make my self look cool or what ever. I havn't been to the track in a long while because for one I have been having some problems with my car and to I go to akron on tuesday nights. also dragway 42 is getting really getto with all the people that work there. and of you how know where Circuit city is in Cuyahoga Falls Ohio can come and visit me there and I will gladly show you my car. I just don't have alot of time to sit here everynight and write about me car. I work 40 hours a week and got to school 16 hours so I have very little time for this. please feel free to come see me

No harm meant, man. There's just the occasional newbie on every auto board that has the biggest and best of everything then is never heard from again. And when it happens too often people become skeptical easily unless someone has actually seen it. I'm sure everyone here remembers the guy on the BMW forum that made people believe he had an M3 for two years before he was busted.

That and we have a certain someone on this board who says he has tons of work done but never follows through on anything with pics or meeting up with people. Its all good some day i hope to see your car. sounds real nice. Do you have any exterior work done or is it just a sleeper.

Blown Gt
09-29-2003, 05:59 PM
It is going to stay a sleeper because when I pull up to the line and the mustangs see it and start talking crap like why waist your time I am going to blow them away. I get my car back tomorrow i hope getting the window fixed and a few other common problems. I am going to have a guy a work take some pics. I really need to get some on here

Blown Gt
09-29-2003, 06:10 PM
Oh yeah I ment to write this on my first reply but I would like to give congrats to The Old Guy in this forum for picking up that you can not have a jet power control modual with a supercharger since you need to keep the air and fuel at the right mix. I just thought I through that in there to see how picked up on it. I am going to try and get to drag way 42 tomorrow and race for those of you who go. it depend on how late I get out of school and if my car is fixed. if not there I will try and hit quaker on wed. to race. better track.

yeah the rims were on the car when I baught it and don't have the money right now to change them. I am going to go with Centerline rims the RPM or Impuls rims but one of them I have to special order since they don't make them so I am going to drive on these rims for winter.

10-07-2003, 02:30 PM
I don't post very much anymore due to time, but I thought I'd better chime in on this one. BlownGT is legit cause I saw his setup getting done at RSM when Athomas and I visited Toronto in August. Nelson took us down into the shop and we saw BlownGT's engine all apart. Adam and I thought it was funny that the license plate said "BlownGT" before the SC had been strapped on, but all is done now looks like. We were wondering if the car was on the boards at all. I know lots of people have been accused of posting hype about their car - all BS with no proof. Just putting my 2 cents in as a witness... I saw the plate, I saw the car, I saw the blower, welcome aboard Blown (man doesn't that sound funny :duh: )

10-07-2003, 03:46 PM

$4700 with free install, tuning, and couple nights' accomodations in Toronto. Not a bad deal whatsoever....if you like centrifugal sc lag.

10-08-2003, 07:29 PM
This is a serious consideration of mine. It dont look like to much room for headers however. That may bother me, you think it will still fit with headers?

PontiacGT2K
10-08-2003, 07:54 PM
The RSM doesn't work with headers. Wait 6 months, and you'll realise why the RSM and Eaton aren't really worth it.....there's going to be a new option, that works with headers.

:thumbs: :cheers: ANd his slips told me all I needed to know. It took him 1/8th of a mile to generate boost. But I know what you mean, I hate it when people make speculations on something that they have never experienced. My buds' mustang has a centrifugal SC, and he doesn' t generate boost til' around 3000rpm. That's pretty high, for a stroked cobra motor.

you realize it works both ways, if you don't hit 12's, you will end up paying out 500 dollars. In the end, 500 dollars is going to seem miniscule after the thousands and thousands of dollars spent on getting into 12's in the first place. Definately not worth it.

The money spent to get into the 12's not worth it? For me its worth it. There is others out there just like me, money is just money. Ill make more tommorrow so it dont matter.
