Should be about 175 with the ram air and 170 without. I think the "ram air" is just a marketing scheme for a cold air duct. That'* the real benefit unless you're going over 100. That'* probably when the incoming air gets compressed and increases manifold pressure. You know, you should put in a boost gauge, go to a track, and let us know what you see!

I had a Alero..(pretty much the same thing as a Grand Am) Same color, with tan leather, 3.4, every option, until it overheaded and warped the heads
