Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

That's excellent Bill!

And a pretty rare little GP in the foreground to boot. 3.4L DOHC? McLaren Turbo?

McLaren Turbo. We have two of them. That one and a black one. Red one was bought with forged internals and a bigger turbo and tune. Supposed to be 350hp at the wheels but the tranny never got upgraded so we dont know. Its actually going to the tranny shop soon to get it rebuilt. The black one is a "project" at this point that just sits in my driveway. Took the turbo off to rebuild it right after we bought it and it kinda stopped after that. Daughter bought a driver's door to replace the bad one(bought that way) and then she lost interest. Glad we never titled it. It may not ever get back on the road lol. Got the red one for $1500 and the black one for $700. I will eventually redo the black one but it may end up being a 3400 top swap turbo instead of a 3100 turbo. Its already got a reman motor in it so it wouldnt bother me modifying it.

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

Nice! You'd don't see may of those anymore. I used to be on an A-body forum when I had a Buick wagon. A fellow with a 6000 Wagon added a McLaren powertrain to it. Pretty cool. Would love to see that setup on a 3.9L.

Re: 2017 Trans Am Nationals

The red one is my son's and its does have some serious scoot to it. I figure the black one will be more stock with a little modifying. My son also has an 06 GP GXP thats his DD. It basically running an open exhaust and really sounds mean.
