Grand AM SE1 needs help!!!

Hey, I recently bought a 2000 Grand AM Coupe SE1 2.4liter 4 cylinder duel over head cam... ( 150hp 155torque) with 65,000 miles. I need any help on performance that I can get for this car. MY #1 QUESTION IS: Does anyone know how much hp/ torque I can get out of a 400-500$ engine programer and if so, which??? I am new to this and need some real help. Im looking to get it up to around 200-250 hp. Please list what you know. Thank You! (My main interests are any thing exhaust related, engine programmer/chip, cold air intake, or really anything else that some one knows about...haha)

Welcome to AF.

thiers a lot of stuff you can do to your engine, but you are not going to get 200 hp for $500, more like $4000.

You can find CAI and get a custom exhaust that should give you a few more HP.

I dont know anything about that superchip, new to me.

But you can buy a DHP PCM which will allow you to utalize your other mods and custom tune your engine.

No way! Looks like more useless crap!

This would be your best bet for the money or one cheaper somewhere else...

Or a super charger, $4400

Like I said above a CAI and a custom exhaust would be the place to start.
This site has a cold air intake and an exhaust header for your engine.

Re: Grand AM SE1 needs help!!!

WoW Thanks Again! The supercharger is a little out of my league, because at my current state I am only able to spend up to about 1,500$. I wish I had more but I dont. So from the Z-SPEC Calalog Webiste would you say just about everything on there that fits my engine is legitimate? I want to get atleast near 200 hp out of 1500 bucks and i think i should be able to get close. The headers are nice and not too xpensive, and I am wanting to work on the majority of the exhaust. As you can tell I do not know much at all lol. And would appreciate any more advice you could give me, but please keep everything simple. Im trying to learn lol...and I really want to learn more about that engine programmer so I am going to try and loom into that.
