Car looks terrible.

But no timeslips, no dyno sheet...no care.

Nice hack job! Your hood looks terrible. You know you aren't going to be able to drive that in ANY kind of bad weather right? A good hard rain is going to short out your ignition system.


Also, if you have larger injectors, a tuner, and a caspers AFPR.... WTF are you using a vortech 10:1 pressure riser for?! You are going to jack the pressure up WAY too higher under boost and kill your fuel pump or make your injectors go static. Plus you don't need that much pressure with bigger injectors and only 3psi of boost. Do you even have a WBO2 so you know what your AFR actually is at WOT?

And why is it only making 3psi? You should be able to get way more than that out of an M90. The only point to using an M90 is that the M62 is kind of small for this engine's displacement and is pretty much maxed on air flow around 10psi. An M90 can move 10psi worth of air at a lower rpm and rotor speed so it is more efficient and doesn't make as much heat. If you are only making 3psi... it was a major waste of time. Or are you actually making 10psi? It's not very clear from your post. Regardless, a stock trans isn't going to last long with boost either. If you swapped in a new 4T45e without rebuilding it and upgrading the clutches first, you just wasted a bunch of money. No dyno or time slips... I'd hardly call it a "fast grand am gt". I'm not impressed.


And it's not very clear what you are doing with the NOS... do you mean you are injecting it before the S/C? That is a very bad idea. Those S/C's are not made to run anything through the rotors. Not nitrous, or fuel, or alcohol injection, or anything. You'll wash out the lubricating grease in the needle bearings and burn them up and end up f**king up your rotors and having to get a new core.

Aaron, I love it when you crush the hopes and dreams of noobs.

ditch the stripe it just looks dumb.

and if he were to put a cowl on the hood it would be like 6-8" high meaning your not seeing out the windshield.

someone did this years ago with a Beretta. not the most practical setup but it worked for him.

what about some underhood pics.
