oh yeah the cars just over 2600 right now power nothing, should put me at about 2750 or 2800.

I love seeing support from the 3800 people, usually I get bashed where ever I go and mention fiero

I'm sure you'll hear updates from me soon just detailing the engine and all before April/May then it goes in.

thanks again for the support!

I would get the best suspension parts cause it used to suck.
It was a great car . Too bad it blew up.

I really like the older Cav'* . The look kinda nice and the Z-24 package looks better.

Even though there are quite a few Grand Am'* out there, I am surprised there is no support for them. Why not just turbo a 3.4L Grand Am? Would have an advantage since its DOHC, have probably some good head flow.

And the classic Fiero 3800 swap. We shall be dropping a 3800 in a 95 Cutlass (3000lbs wet) that will be converted over to turbo rather than run the Eaton M90. MM...... 25psi....

You are right, forgot GM stopped using the 3.4L DOHC engine. The compression ratio on that 3.4L is 9.5:1. GM did a supercharged Grand Am for a total of 275 HP. Don't know about if they changed anything on the engine though. Should be the Grand Am GXP since every car in the Pontiac line will have a performance version with the GXP badge, and they will all have the same wheels (different sizes though), color, and a few more other features.

Turbo'* add alot of torque (backpressure and such). That'* why alot of 4 cylinder turbo motors from VW will have 180HP and 180TQ while the N/A version is 120HP and 105TQ. Turbo'* are known for generating more TQ but there comes a point like around 1000HP that HP keeps going up and torque doesnt since HP is a function of torque. It'* how long it stretches basically.
