    Default New Grand Prix Owner - 1999 GT 4 Door

    Hey there everyone! I'm 18 and i have just purchased my first car, which as you can see is a 1999 Grand Prix Gt 4 Door. My dad had a 1997 Grand prix that he loved but he got rid of a while back. I'm looking to modify my car over the next few months and i wanted to find out what the best companies to go for. I know that i don't have the GTP unfortunately, but i'd love to put in a super charger down the line. Right now i'm looking for more exhaust, cat delete, etc. Let me know what i should do!

    -Thanks everyone!

    Do all the basic maintenance things first. Plugs, wires, replace the LIM gaskets, coolant elbows, coolant flush. I'd also throw in a Trans-Go shift kit and do a pan drop/filter change on the existing trans. NO FLUSHING! Once you have a good solid running car that you now know the maint. history on, then you can start gathering parts for what is known as a "top swap". Which basically means you install the heads, LIM and Supercharger parts off a GTP onto your GT motor. Then you get a tune to make it run right. Then start saving for a transmission because I know when I was 18 I was not always "nice" to things, lol.. And these trans are made of glass on a stock motor, let alone a boosted one.

    You could get a 3" ZZP catted downpipe which will eliminate the u-bend after the cat and likely replace a the worn out cat converter that the 99 has on it. They also make one w/o the cat but it will not pass visual inspection if you have those where you live.

    Keep stock mufflers if you enjoy hearing yourself think inside the car. Aftermarket mufflers will drone all the time on a V6 like this.
