    trans am BUILD THREAD

    So Ive owned this car now for a couple years and finally decided to start pulling the engine since i finally bought a house with a garage so, i figured i would pull it due to it had some issues. this is how it sits now, the engine is on a stand and is built just need a couple more things to finish like tranny and exhuast hoping for 450hp to the wheels on a natural aspirated LT1 when complete. I'll upload engine pictures and mod list later just figured i would start a build thread.

    Looks like you've been busy. Need to invite me over to see the new place and the old bird.

    Yep! Lol The pics with the hoist give me Vietnam style flashbacks to last summer when we were putting mine back together. Can't wait to see build details. Who are you going to have it tuned by?
