New here! Early 90s nut!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!  Found this site in an email from Rock Auto and couldn't resist joining.  My first car was a Pontiac and I still have it!  I've got a 1991 Grand Prix SE that has been heavily modified, a 1990 Turbo Grand Prix that has been Getrag 282 5-speed swapped, and another 1990 Turbo Grand Prix that I unfortunately may have to put to rest due to damage and rust.  In addition to that, I've got a 1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 and a 2004 Ford Excursion Limited 6.0 PSD.  Enough about me, here's the cars!

This is the 1991 GP.  I've swapped on the 94-96 factory body kit, had a custom hood built with a 67 Stingray scoop molded to the steel hood, DIY rear coilover suspension, lowering springs up front, and several other aesthetics.  Below the hood is a ~97 Supercharged 3800 and a "fully built" trans.  It's got a Gen V supercharger, ZZP XP cam, Pacesetter headers, PRJ intercooler and fuel rails, several supporting mods to go along, and probably a few things I'm forgetting.  Almost entirely un-tuned, I've gotten 12.58 out of it, but it's got a lot more in it with a proper tune.

These are the 2 Turbo Grand Prixs.  The black one is the 5 speed.  The red looks far less "healthy" now than it does even in this picture unfortunately.

How do they handle?  Well, the blue one is built for 1/4 mile, so I don't even bother throwing it around any curves.  The black one's suspension is stiff and does okay.  It's a bit too solid to really be productive, but it feels good throwing it around.  The 3000 stick to the road like it's on rails and is a blast to thrash on.
