Im new to the site and i just recently picked up a 98 Trans Am. It was my best friends car that i did 100% of the work on for him. Tried for years to get him to sell it to me and finally he gave in. Enjoy the pics.

Only mods it has at the moment is a P1SC Procharger, full SLP exhaust and some wore out Nitto drag radials.

Im from bakersfield. Im wicked excited i finally got it and thank you. I already have a few parts im going to throw at it. When i installed the procharger, they sent us the wrong pulley and the car only makes 2 1/2lbs on stock injectors and pump it made 402hp on a dynojet. I ordered the 6lb pulley and throwing in some 42lb injectors and a 255lph fuel pump. I cant wait.

402whp on 2 1/2 lbs is still pretty good. :)

Post up what it makes on the 6lb pulley.

hello every one, im rocky and i have been involved in racing for many many years, own two pontiacs, love them both. am in the process of building a NMCA car or IHRA car, i am taking off every single piece but the main body, its a 94 firebird, so if you are looking for anything let me know, i have no idea what that rear glass is worth , but i know it has to be expensive to replace, i just need to get rid of every thing for room for the equipment that will be coming in.
thank you

You paid $6000, curious what do you think it is worth if you were to try and re-sell it today? Are they a nice ride and how many miles does your have? Any problems to speak of? I see a few of these cars for sale here in Santa Monica, California. where I live. Thinking of maybe looking at one..

noticed you are gonna install a fuel pump check out the thread on the fuel pump install where you cut out the floor so you don't have to drop the tank pretty cool write ups. Also how in the hell did you get it for 6k? was that including the procharger? how many miles you got on that bad boy?

I'm sure he got the good deal because it was his buddies car and he did the Procharger install for his buddy, nothing wrong with that! What mileage does it have? Nice car and welcome to the site!

Well the car has 100k on it. just went over a few weeks ago. Motor is still in perfect shape. Did a tune up last week and still has perfect compression across the board. I have a 02 crate motor from gm ready to slap into it. Ill be doing that here in the next few weeks. Its a new 5.7l short block with 6.0 heads, mls headgaskets, ls6 intake, ported t.b. Im thinking about changing the headers that are on it seeing as it has the older slp's on it and they hang way to damn low to the ground. Im not sure what it would be worth if i tried to sell it but i would probly try for about 11k or so. Just off the top of my head. But this baby is mine, shes not going anywhere.
