  • 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!

Hello from Iowa

Recommended Posts

Hello, im new to fp. Im from iowa, i am an active musician for rock, hard rock, heavy metal, and experimental.

I own a 1998 Pontiac Grand Am SE, with a 3.1 liter v6. I have all kicker sound system with a panasonic in dash. All the filters are K&N. It needs new window motors and lifts. It also need a new paint job and rust removal. I would also like to LineX my wheel wells and parts of the undercarage, to protect from the harsh iowa winter weather.

I try and do all the maitenece and repair work on my car myself. I think i do pretty good.

Welcome to FP!

A 4th gen GA owner, nice to see the numbers still coming. The L82 motor residing in your GA tends to be notorious for Lower Intake Manifold gasket and headgasket leaks in old age. However, swapping in the LA1 3400 motor doesn't take much at all.

Any pics of the GA?

Also, curious about your music. *points to sig*

Yeah i have heard that about the lower intake problem, with 170k miles on it i can only hope for a little longer!! will the tran i have work with a 3400, i figured the power wouldn't take, being a bigger motor and all.

no pics yet its filthy from winter, plus im actually looking for prices on gettin it repainted but i will take before and after pics. im not getting nothing fancy, just updateing it and fixing the rust and dents.

as far as music goes dont have any recorded but to give you a hint, i play a lot of Godsmack, chevelle, creed, alter bridge, and a little bit of classic rock here and there. My fav guitarist is Mark Tremonti from creed and alter bridge.

I forget with trans is bolted up to the L82 (maybe the 4T40E) but the LA1's 4T45E trans drops in without much of an issue. Of course, a top end rebuild would be necessary on the LA1 you find if you ever do the swap. (Might as well do an LX9 top swap)

The music...meh...I'm gonna be nice and bite my tongue. Let's just say I don't like any of those bands. :(

I'll find my metal discussion thread and link it here.
