What looks like a single exhaust pipe gives me the impression of v6. But i wouldnt of noticed if someone else didnt mention it.
Very clean car though The more i see trans ams the more i want one. A red ws6 would fill the driveway nice i think

1) Single exhaust
2) picked it up cheap
3) Firebird front bumper/rear hatch/rear bumper
4) Ram air hood, if it was a formy you wouldnt of changed it
5) My car use to be a v6 till i swapped all bumpers/hatch/hood and added an ls1

i have had a few people tell me to switch the front and rear bumpers and spoiler to the trans am style....but like i said...i made this car to be different...i have never seen a really nice v6, and those were my thoughts..to make a good looking firebird.......as for the exhaust, thats on the to-do list. I want it to be quiet as possible but some nice dual tips..overall it has been quite a project.....it was a good feeling saving this car. i will post the before pics as soon as i can....thanx for all the compliments
