Hi yall. I just thought I would drop a line and let ya know some stuff about me. I've been a Pontiac fan since I was a kid my first car was a '75 Lemans, I actually lost something very important to me in the back seat but still can't remember what the girls name was. Later I bought a '69 lemans that had a '66 389 tri-power in it. when I caught that on fire I dropped a 455 from a '75 Grand Prix SJ into it and that car scared me to death first. My wife and I just bought an '05 GXP it had 31k on the om and I paid just over 11k for it. I love this car, my wife is scared of it but I love it. Its kind of a Blue green shifty color, sounds like a pitbull on roids and runs like a striped assed ape. Any improvements I can make to this without going goofy would be deeply appriciated if suggested.
speed is time, time is money

The GXP is already loaded with most of the goodies, drilled rotors, bilstein struts, good springs and a lightweight set of alcoa wheels.

You can get a K&N or other intake, maybe a hi-flow cat (Magnaflow makes good one...possibly even one made into a bolt-in downpipe)

Magnaflow and others also make good hi-flow mufflers but the Summit Fully Welded muffler is a hi-flow bargain.

i'm not sure if anyone offers a PCM for the car or maybe you can get a capable tech to re-tune your present PCM. Just keep in mind that the FWD trans is your weak link. 323 ft/lbs stock is already taxing the limits of the trans so be a little ginger on the hot starts.
