Ok, Are you asking about a GRAND am or TRANS am, because to my knowledge, pontiac didnt make a V8 Grand Am. The Trans Am is a 5.7litre V8 with either 325 or 345 horsepower(cant remember which) and comes with either 4-spd auto or 6-spd manual. Ram air is kinda coined by pontiac (I think) on the Trans Ams its those to vents on the front of the vehicle that have a baffle that leads off into an airbox where you can put a performance air filter to boost horse power. On the Grand Ams it's the two openings right below the hood line on the front that lead to the air filter.

first, please show me the site where you found a 2002 that was a V8, and second, yes they usually do come stock with a cd player.

Dude, I work at a pontiac dealership and Im telling you, there is no Grand Am GT V8. I dont know what you saw, but it wasnt a grand am. Grand Ams went to V6 models in 92 and havent looked back.

:confused: wait a second here. TegMan95, I think you are confused. Grand Am GT Does not come with a V8. If so it would be RWD and no Grand Am has ever been RWD that I'm aware of.

but i decided to get the 2000 grand am gt coupe.. i read somewhere that all grand am gts come standard with a cdplayer.. is this true?
If there was a Grand Am GT with a V8, I see it hard to believe you didn't buy it, but you went and got the 2000 GT with the 3.4. This kind of tells me that you may mean Trans Am. I know alot about Pontiac and if there was a Grand Am equiped with a V8, I would know. TegMan95, sorry, but you are going to need more to back up your V-8 Grand Am for us to believe you. I need proof.
2002 pontiac grand am gt Ram Air v8 All Ram Air Grand Am's had the 3.4 same with the V-6 HO. 99-03 all GT's had the 3.4 ram air or 3.4 HO. The SE models had the 3.4(stock) or the 2.4

There is no V8 Grand Am, maybe he is mistaken the new GTO as a Grand Am. Also all Grand Am GT's are automatics the only stick Grand Am is a 4 banger.

wow this is funny.
there was a v8 grand am......back in the 70s.
and on a side note, just because a car has a v8, doesn't mean it has to be RWD, look at most Cadillacs.

We are not talking about a Grand Am from the 70's, its about "2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT Specs".

Heres another side note, a Caddy has a V8 because of its weight and its a luxury car not a sporty car. There not worried about its handling and such.

Newer Grand Ams only come in a 4 banger & V6. the newer Grand Am GT's are all 4 speed automatics only manuals are non GT 4 bangers.

Now why don't they give an option for a stick in the GT? Dosen't it give you quicker performance? That is if you can hook it up without pealing out to much.
If I had the money, I'd like the new Porche eater. (Subaru WRX STi) STi=3.9sec 0-60, Porche 4.3sec. Don't remember the 1/4 mile, but I read it was quicker there too.

Any way,
2002 Grand AM GT
175 hp
205 tourque
1/4 mile = mid 15's toj high 15's
Not sure what the speed is, I hit 87mph where I check it. But that's not official. I wan't to go the the drag strip, but it's far away for me.
Check out this site. www.60degreev6.com
I just checked that site, but now they say 180 hp. Use to be 175 with Ram Air.

PICTURES please. Let's see pictures. Sounds like a lot of mod's for that.
The following GT1's only list a V6

A picture is worth a million words.
Show us the V8 engine in a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am (Not Trans Am) and everyone will be happy. :)
I beleive if it has a V8, it's definately modified to be that way. Not stock.

I paid $75,000 since it's a GT1. It has better gearing and the RAM AIR package, so I had to pay extra.

Interesting. Do you have specs on those engines, and 1/4 run times??? The idea of puting a V8 with RWD did cross my mind after I bought mine. Even making this V6 into RWD would be a great idea. I'm sure it would grab the road better for the 1/4 mile run. Do you have pictures yet?




(April Fools) LOL

I don't know, the original post was before today though.


P.S. @ those prices, you could have had a V8. OHHHH!!! you did.
I mean a Corvette. LOL

Wasn't sure if it was an Aprils Fool joke or not. Do you have pictures? I'd like to see them if you do.
Having a V8 would be a good sleeper performance secret at the races.
I don't know if other people use that term or not. I've heard it before. Meaning hush hush secret until you kick their butt.
I'll have to remain skeptic until I see pictures.
After all, it is April Fools Day.

I've seen dragster cars that say Grand Am, running 7-8 second 1/4 mile, but that's fully modified, not stock. Iroc series and Nascar runs V8 RWD Grand Am's. Fully moded. Approx. $1/2 million.
Not street legal.

2002 pontiac grand am gt Ram Air v8 (what does ram air mean lol im a newb)

also it says Air P. Win/Lks, im guessing it means air pressure windows and locks but can someone confirm?

How can a grand am come with a v8 if it is FRONT WHEEL DRIVE????? i have a 2002 grand am gt 3.4l v6 w/ ram air too and ive never heard of it unless its in the NHRA funny car league. ive never heard of a v8 front wheel drive car EVER! where would the drive shaft go??? you must have misunderstood him or he was trying to scam you. RAM AIR LETS AIR CAME IN THROUGH THE GRILLE PART THAT GOES TO THE FILTER THEN IN THE THROTTLE BODY. IT GIVES YOU +5HP AND +10FT.LBS OVER THE STANDARD INTAKE .( IT JUST LETS AIR IN QUICKLY ) im 18 years old and ive known cars since i was 9yrs old. EVEN THE CONCEPT GTX GRAND AM ONLY HAD A SUPERCHARGED 3.4L V6 (IT WAS SUPPOSE TO TAKE THE PLACE OF THE NEW GTO, SAW IT AT THE DETROIT AUTO SHOW)

Most of the late model Caddys have V8's (Northstar, 4.6L V8) and are FWD. The engien would be hooked up the same as your V6. Just because it has2 more cylinders doesnt mean it cant be FWD. I myself dont see the point in have a V8 in a FWD car since under hard acceliration would be a bitch.

FWD is good to get as much power to the wheels on low powered engines but to me RWD is the way to go with engines with decent power. Of course and V8 powered car with AWD woudl be fun.

So as for having a V8 GA, there are only 3 GA's in the world that I kow of and one was first created by AED a prototying company. So to say you say one on a dealership is impossible since pontiac only made one and it was a SC/T grand am that was destroyed after production as a concept. So you don't have a v8 ga:screwy:

hah! I bought an 03 gt1 brand new, sold it in 05 and can tell you that those years NEVER had a v8 EVER unless it was modded by someone. I will say it was one of the best cars i had until the piston slap started around 10k miles and gm used their most famous line... CAN NOT DUPLICATE CONDITION AT THIS TIME. I quickly unloaded it just before it went off warranty. It was a shame because it was a beautiful car. Victory red gt1 coupe with the sct package.
