Not all v6 SEs came with rear disc brake ,actually I think all SE's in general came with rear drums instead

All SE's came with rear drum brakes. All GT's came with rear disc brakes.


My V6 Grand Am SE2 came with rear drums from factory just like every other SE that's out there.

I converted my SE over to rear disc brakes.

Hmm, I thought it was only the 4 cyl's. Oh well. I haven't worked on a SE in a long time.

I was going to do a SE to GT conversion but then I realized that with how OCD I am with my car that it would cost a lot to go through with it. Then I started thinking to myself that I really want to get a RWD car and so I'll be moving on to another platform in the near future. Probably an e46 330i. I just figure that if I'm going to spend all the money I really should get myself into another car that I will enjoy more.

I'm sure when someone says SE to GT conversion, they go by the basics, i.e the appearance, not that in detail about final gear ratios and everything.

So yes if you're wanting to go complete, transmission, engine n all then yes it would be cheaper just to have gotten a GT, but just bumpers and side cladding, you can do that with an SE.

Plus... 2.4 to 3.4 swap is a PITA. I know a guy who did the swap and has numerous issues he can't seem to clear up. Id just trade in for a GT
