Pontiac of the Month

Pedja's 1968 Firebird

2019 March
of the Month

  • 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!

Is there any interchangable parts between the Grand Prix supercharged or not and the Grand am v6’s. More so the injectors and the supercharger itself and the transmission to push more power and withstand it. (I own a 2005 v6 3400 sfi grand am SE)

Sadly no. The reason being is that the 3800 SC engine from the Grand Prix is 90 degree engine design based on the Buick V6 oddfire/evenfire/Grand National/GSX motor. The  LA1 engine that you have in your Grand Am is a 60 degree engine design from Chevrolet, that started with the LE2 engine back in 1980. These are essentially different engine families.

The transmission may bolt up to the 3800 bell housing, but the 3.8L SC engine will be a tad wider than your 3.4L motor. This is not to say it won't fit in the engine bay, but you will have to do all the custom fabrication since there is no kit that I am aware of, for this swap.

      What is the difference between the 2005 grand am v6 SE and GT. I know there is a power difference but what differentiates the two and can the SE motor be modded to a GT?

      Hey, im new to pontiacs and see the grand am's dont have a large after market variety. I have a 2005 3.4L V6 grand am sedan and was wondering what I could do to make a little more power but wont entirely break the bank

      IT is a great pleasure to be a "newbie" on this site as I am a long-time Pontiac enthusiast!  
      My first ownership began back in 1976 when as a High School Senior, I purchased a '64 LeMans from my neighbors.  Not a GTO by any means (flat 6, standard brakes), it still started me on my Pontiac journey- which included:
      1984 T-1000,  1986 Sunbird,  1988 Firebird (V6),   1996 Grand Prix GT,  2004 GTO (my buddy Mike and I were early adopters of the Monaro/GTO and Pontiac Performance Magazine actually did a photo story on us called "Blood Brothers" as we lived several houses apart), 
      current ride:  2002 Firebird.  Sunset Orange Metallic.   Apparently, it was one of the last couple of hundred produced and I thoroughly enjoy it!  Although I drive a german performance sedan during the work week, I intend to keep my 'Bird for a long long long time!  I never had a car with T-tops before this one and I love opening it up and cruising alongside the beach on FL A-1-A, going to the local "Cars & Coffee" once a month.
