Hey guys!

Hey guys. I'm kind of new around here. I registered a little while ago and just looked around to see what was around here. Now, since I have purchased my car, I decided it's time to start posting.

I have a 2 door '05 Grand Am GT. I was looking around and was trying to find something to make it a little louder and more appealing to myself and my friends. I have not found anything on my search and neither has my father, who has been looking around for quite sometime now. Any suggestions on anything that will make the car sound louder?

If you are talking about exhaust, search in the Mod section for borla, flowmaster etc.....
few different ways to go about it from cat back to just mufflers...


WAI or CAI will give you a little bit of sound under the hood, not much.

if you play around with searching, its all been said before, trust me its there, you just have to find it.

Enjoy the site and happy modding......

Thanks guys.

Bought it for $11,000 with just under 12,000 miles on it. It was my 17th birthday present.

Here is a shot of it when we first bought it:



I'll post later to show what I have done to it.

Pretty good price. I had paid 10,500 for my '02 w/ 20k on it.

The GA looks pretty decent. Start modding NOW..

not really, but pretty damn close.


Current private party resale value of a car like mine (2006, very clean, 20k miles): $19k

These cars are a focking bargain for used buyers.
