Pontiac has "Ram Air V6" emblems on the GranDamns. I laughed so much I missed 3rd gear. Unless the "ram air" is coming from behind the radiator, I don't know how it works. There are no hood scoops.

horatio102: Open the hood and check for yourself. The "ram air" intake is right about the rad. So yeah, the GrandAm GT's are ram air...


Just thought you might want to know.

I have a friend with a Ram Air GrandAm GT. Yup, right above the radiator, and it give a whopping 5 HP increase over stock! Oh, well, like I always say, every horsie counts! It's a nice car.

Blindeye_03,

I use a MRT WRX bonnet hood scoop for ram-air. Check my the member's pic section to see it or check out MRT's website and search for wrx bonnet hood scoop. It raised my 1/4 mile mph by 1-2mph but I don't know how much extra horses were made if any.

I had my car shop "Griffin Motorwerk in Berkeley" Make me a custom ram air intake. U know the little orange vents at the bottom front end of the car... well on the passenger side i had the vent removed and put a noeprine tube in where that little orange vent used to be. the tube runs from there to the stock pletum that i still use with the stock filter. works grate the only worry i have is going throught big puddles but even in the rain i have had no prolbems for the past 16k. I change my air filter a little more often because it seems to get dirty faster but that it.

The only person who I knew who had a Ram Air set-up was "Dan" with his 99' RS. I just deleted the link in my favorites because I hadn't gone there in a while. I don't remember his full name or web-address.
But his car was Blue, with dark tints and Chrome Rims if that helps.

If you wanna put your hood scoop to good use and get some forced air into the engine get a turbo. Ram air will give you like .8 psi. Why mess around, save your money and get the blower.

I've done something very similar...but different!

Anyway...I am going to be working on this over the weekend, so I will post more as it comes up.

....OK, so I don't want to work right now...

here is a picture of what I did for my car...rather, how it USED to be
<IMG SRC="http://216.242.153.40/MembersList/UserPics/1126/intake01.jpg" border=0>

BIG PROBLEM THOUGH!!! Sure it screams at high RPMs...but there is an UGLY loss of low end torque. That is due to the extremely short length of the intake runner (from the filter to the throttle body). In order to generate that good low end power (rather, one of the things you need to do, there is more to it than that) is get some good air speed as it enters the throttle body. In order to do that...you need some length.

My half ass (but AMAZINGLY benificial!) fix to that was to get some good old black sewer pipe from Home Depot and hose clamp it between the throttle body and the filter. The effect was huge, and that was with a relatively short increase in length.

Needless to say there is much more work to be done...

But for those of you out there who want to put a cone filter straight on the throttle body...build a box around it...you are going to lose a LOT of low end torque...and run WAY lean too.

Just my $85.00 (I can't say $0.02 'cause I have spent way too much time and money on this thing! )
