Hello, My name is Jonni, i live in Pine City, pretty close to alot of guys here!

I have a white 2000 Grand Am GT Coupe that is awaiting attention from the still boxed intake and random other parts i have waiting for me as soon as im out of Iraq.

i have $6000 in to the car already, most of it was getting it on the road: shocks, tranny plate (the name escapes me now) stupidly expensive tires, and a host of tune up parts.

i have stereo equipment (looks like a radio shack tipped over inside) including a 5" dvd player an 8" fold down ceiling monitor, 2 5" headrest monitors, 1 underpowered sub, and possibly my favorite feature, a Stereo HiFi 8-Track player that fits perfectly in the cubby below the heater knobs.

the first thing i want to do to it, besides installing the intake, is have the computer tuned, as this will be my daily driver, i want the best gas milage i can get.

so i will be back in MN late October, If anyone knows of meetings/shows/swap meets in the area i would love to attend.

i forgot to add in the Remote Starter that is giving me so much hell! the battery went dead last time i was gone, and now it will start the car and kill it right away!

So when you say you have 6g's into it, you that includes the price of the car, right?

...and you're joking about the 8track player, right?

6g is in the price, which was almost 3k, i know i payed a little much for it, but its in great shape.

the 8-track player is no joke, ive got a 3.35mm jack coming out of it going into the dvd head unit, i am also equipped to record my own tapes, believe it or not i get amazing bass from those old things!
