Re: selling the GTA

No! Just put in a LS1/6 speed, and still have good looking car. Don't sacrifice looks for speed.

Re: selling the GTA

Correct me if I'm wrong.... but couldn't you get an LS1 and a 6-speed in a Pontiac?

Don't leave the PMD faithful all together; buy yourself something cool.... like a '96 WS6 Ram Air T/A.

Re: selling the GTA

The difference between the LS1 Camaro's and the LS1 T/Am's is the Camaro's LOOK like they are gonna come and kick your butt, however the T/Am's WILL come over and kick your butt!!

I should have seperated those comments better, Munson.... I'm with you on the LS1 availibility. I've got a good friend that has a '00 Z28.

I was trying (vaguely) to state that the early 4thGen WS6 cars are my favorites looks-wise with the second comment.

But by all means, get a Pontiac instead of a Chevy.

Re: selling the GTA

There are always LS1 T/As on ls1tech for sale. But I also agree, I would do the LS1 swap if the deal falls through.

I rode in an L98 Trans Am, compared to my LT1 powered one, it was like putting the 305 against the 350.

Re: selling the GTA

The guys in my car club are trying to get me to do an LS1 swap, but it is a little out of my price range right now. For now...I'll just be happy to have my L98 running again.

Re: selling the GTA

The car ran 9.35 on street tires spinning through 1st and 2nd. If I could get it to hook up we're thinking mid 8's with the stock motor. I'm enjoying the combo in the third gen alot, plus the 24+ mpg doesn't hurt either.

for a little bit more, and a ton less work, you could put a procharger on your motor. my buddy just put a procharger on his girlfriends 350 camaro 3rd gen. it just dyno'd 341 rwhp and 426 rwtq. that's on a stock head, stock LTR 350 L98 motor. both of those #'s crush a stock ls1 motor. and just to throw another jab in there, that's only with 7 psi boost, they had the 12# pulley on and couldn't get it to even make that much.

Re: selling the GTA

True, but you still have an L98 with the TPI setup which is still a major chokepoint in those motors.
