any cobalts wanna race a grand am?

Looking for some FWD competition from the GM FWD crowd. I have a quad 4 powered 2001 Pontiac Grand Am, and I want to see if anybody can step up and make at least a challenging race.

i dont see a grand am beating an SS/SC anytime soon, unless its gutted, and has at least a 75 shot on the motor... depends on where your from, if your on the east coast, ill see you at Rockingham...

I have full interior and no nitrous, my intake manifold however is setup to accept a direct port juicer though if so desired. I live in Las Vegas... hence my post in the southwestern forum. Now why is it that you don't see a Grand Am beating an SS/SC? Well here's a little help. It's not the 3.4L or a 3.1L V6, no it does not have a motor swap from a GTP. It does have a 2.4L twin cam in it though.
And a


I think you, by a wide margin, underestimated an n-body.

Those quad 4's were killer motors. The only problem was reliability. I can definitely see a 60 trim charged quad walking right past a SS/SC.

not to spoil the fun, but i dont think you would be able to see him by the time you hit 80. i used to have the same mindset as you, until i raced a 10 second grand am. sad thing was it had chrome rims and a ricer paint job, i didnt even see it coming. then i got walked by one driving the ol evo 8 a few weeks ago.... those were both blown, i cant imagnine one with a turbo of that size on it

btw evo held 22+ lbs, grand am had a kenne bell
