  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Welcome to the site.

What's the plan for the ol' J-body?

Welcome! Nice to see people are "stumbling" onto this site. :woot:

I like the Gold/Black on the Sunfire, they were my high school colors.

Welcome to the site!!

IMO, you're better off just getting yourself a cone filter and putting it right on the end of your MAF sensor.. I bought an ebay intake and it gave me better sound, but my engine lagged.. badly. Took the extra pipe out and put it right on my MAF, sounds amazing, and I gained power! Otherwise, 2.25 exhaust -- :woot:

and I'll never fight with a man wanting a better system.. my van's got the beats, haha. Nice sunfire, good work!

One of my friends has an LN2 Cavy, I'd recommend his exhaust setup:

Pacesetter header

2" exhaust

Stock cat

No resonator

Magnaflow muffler

He's got no rasp, and it's a deep, low tone. Not loud either.

sunfires dont have a MAF sensor, and the ebay intake im getting is the same size as my current intake so it shouldnt decrease performance

and i plan on having almost that same exhaust set up except i already got dual exhaust with 2 fart cans(dont worry there not loud and annoying) and im getting the pacesetter header, 2.25" exhaust, magnaflow hi-flow cat, then im gonna start working on the internals of the engine

get a CAI, way better then a WAI. the black and gold are nice but Id say paint the upper have of the front bumper gold to match the car, cause right now it look like you just slappped a bumper on there. but besides that the car looks good man.

the one im getting is CAI and im gonna put a good filter on it

and you wont believe how much i got ragged on for that on the JBO for not painting the top of the bumper, but truthfully i dont think i'd like it myself

Since the LN2 is a pushrod motor, IIRC, LSx parts can work (valves, lifters, springs etc) and a good port and polish, and a good cam will help out. Although the only way to really get power is boost.

As for the intake, delete all the intake resonators, even te one right above the throttle body, and you'll get the most from the intake setup.

*Edit*

Darren's chop looks good, I'd redo the bumper like that, makes the two tone more fluid.
