Stock Looking 2000 Pontiac Firebird is an 819-Horsepower Sleeper
Built LQ4 with worked cylinder heads and a big turbocharger make this 2000 Pontiac Firebird a serious street brawler.
While flipping through the LS1Tech Marketplace, we came across the listing for this 2000 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am WS6, listed by “xX2000ws6TAXx”. This car is built to make monster power, but with the hood and doors closed, it looks like a pretty average fourth gen car with a set of Corvette take-off wheels. Of course, that is only true when the car is parked with the engine off, as the grumble of the turbocharged V8 leaves no question that this is not your average LS1-powered Pontiac.
When the OP first listed his built 2000 Firebird for sale in the marketplace, he offered up a quick-yet-thorough rundown of what went into creating this monster.

In other words, this car has a built driveline, a suspension system designed to handle all of that power and the safety items needed to enjoy this Trans Am without too much concern of injury. Also, he is not interested in swapping for a Mustang.
The seller also included some images of the car inside, outside and under the hood, along with a video of the car idling in the driveway. It sounds wicked, to say the least. Finally, the owner included the invoice for the engine build with all of the details and the original pricing.
This Firebird has over 800 rear wheel horsepower, but it is inspection-complaint in Rhode Island while still being set up to run stunning quarter mile times. The seller doesn’t list any track times, but with good traction, this Trans Am should be able to run well into the 9-second range along with being to and from the track. Mind you, that is running pump gas with methanol, so there could be even more power to be had with race gas.
This Firebird is listed for sale for $19,000 and he seems pretty confident with that range, while wanting cash and not a trade for some other vehicle. If you have been dreaming of a street-friendly Trans Am that has real 9-second potential, this is a great chance to score a stock-looking beast.
