Hey, I'm new to the forums. I have 2004 SRT-4 & 1979 Pontiac T/A. I used to have a '98 GAGT V6 Coupe before I sold it for my SRT-4. My mom has an '03 GAGT SC/T in silver and I came here to get some ideas to do visual mods to her car. I have some left over stock parts from my '98 GAGT also if anyone would be interested in. I'll post some pics of the cars a little later if anyone wants to see.

I was thinkin' of taillamps, black housing headlamps, SLP exhaust, and etc. If I hadn't bought my SRT-4 her '03 GAGT would have been my car.

I really like the wheels you have on your SRT4. They look a little small though, are they 17s?

It's a 17x8 rim size. The factory rims are 17x6. I just am usin' the stock tires but they are stretched on since the factory tires are 205/50/17's and I didn't want to replace tires that only had like 4-5K miles on them. When I get some cash I'm plannin' on goin' with 225/45/17 Nitto Neo-Gen's. The rims are Konig Sidewayz

Right now, the car has nothin' but bolt on's. The mods I have are in my sig. I just had my PTPerformance WGA put on the other night and the car feels great now. I spike about 17-18psi and hold around 15-16psi. I do plan on goin' with Mopar's Stage 3 w/turbo toys kit which will boost the car's hp from 230hp/250tq to 355hp/365tq on 100 octane.
Here's a link to what's included in the kit.

Thanks, I plan on lowerin' it. Just have to decide on springs since there's like a lot of them.

Yea that SRT4 looks hot man.

I also love the T/A. Looks like a lot went into to get it back into that shape.

Interesting what you did to the rear bumper on the SRT4 there. Looks good from an angle or probably a higher elevation rear view.

The SC/T kit's rear lip would lend itself to that treatment. . . not that I'd do it on mine.

My T/A has only has 25,000 original miles on it. It's almost a survivor car. I got it from my uncle in 2001 with 12,150 miles on it. The paint is original along with the decals and hood bird. The interior is mint also.

After about 3 minutes of pure frustration, i finally noticed the difference in the bumper. I could not tell what you changed lol, looks good though.

Thanks, it was probably one the first visual mods I did to the car when I first got after I found out how to do from my Chicagoland SRT Club. It looks better when you have an aftermarket exhaust on the car though. I had it done before I put on my Mopar/Borla catback exhaust.

No problem. Some of the nicest mods, are the ones that dont scream for attention.

I'm lookin' to do some more visual mods to the car like Carbon Fiber accents. On SRTforums.com they have vendor makin' a lot of cf interior parts for ours car. I might be gettin' CF A-pillars w/3-gauge pods molded in it, CF B-Pillars & CF C-pillars.

I'm afraid to say my SRT-4 is pushin' more than my T/A. I've read it's around 185hp/320tq since the car is still sorta stock. All the emission stuff is taken off and I run a Edelbrock intake manifold and taylor 8.5 wires.

Power can always be added, original bodywork and style is sexy. Original miles is a sure plus

With the torque the car can at least spin the tires a little but you gotta think this car was made durin' the rough smog and emission years. Not only the hp ratings suck the I have a 2:41 gear in the rear so I can do like 85mph at like 2800-3000 rpms. I even pegged the gas to floor and went past 100mph and the needle was straight down coverin' the odometer as you picture it from the earlier pics I posted of the interior. My next mod I was to do it get a bigger gear in car cause 2:41 sucks. I barely can do a burnout with that gear. lol
