PostSubject: Building Bigbird.   Wed Mar 09, 2011 10:36 pm

Let me start off with a little background of the car. In middle and high school I always wanted an Fbody. When I was 16, and after countless hours spent on the internet searching I found my yellow transam for sale on a farm just outside my home town of Waupun. A month later I bought with 130K miles for $3000. 1994 transam GT with Faded yellow exterior and black leather inside, I was in love. Of course by the end of day one I was pulled over, installed a cold air intake, and started an obsession. I know some of you had asked what I was up to this year and as much as I would like to keep secrets Ive decided to spill the beans. Im a believer in spreading knowledge and setups and results etc so here ya go...

I do what I can with the very little resources (im a poor college kid) and lack of a real shop so dont give me grief as this really isnt a "build". Almost every part on my car is used.

Engine:
Stock longblock and manifolds
K/N intake and metal elbow
SLP loudmouth II catback
Free mods and other bolt ons (160 t-stat, EWP, etc)
New Opti plugs and wires recently
Walboro 255 fuel pump/hotwire

Suspension and Brakes/Tires:
Tubular LCAs and drop brackets
Adj PHB
Strut tower brace
Bilstein struts and eibach springs(rear)
35/25mm aftermarket sway bars
LS1 front brake swap w/ Hawk pads
Mickey Thompson ET streets on stock wheels

Power Adder:
Wet nitrous kit
HSW Microedge and Timing Puller
HSW black bottle and gauge
NX solenoids and nozzle
Bottle heater and purge
Custom switch panel

A few pics for now, I will update when I put the rest of the kit on the car(just need to finish wiring and mount bottle)

Good choice on the chassis mods before building power. I'm sure it was tempting to go the other way around
