They dont make alot of aftermarket for that car at all. Wasting your time? Maybe, but you can find stuff.

Big Joe has a aftermarket-ish pre 99 GA. Most your gonna find is aftermarket tails/headlights, some interior mods, maybe a few body kits if u search real hard.

Yea i dont think you will find much besides a CAI or something for it. Maybe they make a SC for it but thats a huge maybe..Im sure you can get a custom turbo made for it..But for the $ it probably isnt worth it to mod that engine.

Well even a CAI you will have to custom make. I put a 99+ GA CAI intake into my 97 GA with a few modifacations. Its pretty hard to find parts for our gas but if you look around ebay and other sites you can find stuff. I found a CF Strut bar on ebay so just look around.

Maybe some people just have to high of expectations for their cars. Ga's are plenty fast.

Sell. There is a reason you can't find any aftermarket...

Uhhh.... no, they aren't. In 1999 they were average. By todays standards they are pathetic.

The posts above saying grand ams were slow were talking about all grand ams in general.

I guess no were since half the people here on this Grand am forum will flame the **** out of me if I tell them a grand am isn't slow. Seen it a thousand times already which is why I usually don't even bother posting here.

We aren't flaming you, it's just the truth. We all thought the GA was "fast" when we first got it.... but for many of us, that was 5 years ago or so, and we have moved on to things that are all around much better cars.
