    Congratulations 024mula!



    I always drove Firebirds my entire life, when I was 17 and able to afford my 1st car which was a 1974 Firebird Esprit (350 2-barrel), boy could that car run. The only problem it rusted liked crazy, I traded it for a 1979 Firebird which was dressed up like a Turbo Trans Am, man did it like nice. But it couldn't pull a "fart out of a shoebox", whoever owner it before me put a Buick 6-cylinder in it and instead of putting a bigger and better engine in it. I trade it off on a 1986 Firebird which was a very nice runner and good looking car. It had a 305 4-barrel motor that was easy on gas as long as you keep your foot out of it. But the unfornate happened, I hit a farm tractor with it and totaled it.I had to find a car fast, I looked all over but couldn't find a Firebird that I liked so I bought a 1985 Mercury Cougar which was a good car but NO Firebird. Couple years later I traded the Mercury for a 1991 Firebird Formula with a WS6 package, WOW was I ever surprised. I didn't know how good a car could handle the road.
    To keep the '91 as long as possible I built a two-car garage and keep it for over 10 years, in that time I got a '99 Chey pick-up for work.Then mid-life crises hit me and the '91 had 150,000 miles on it and it started to break down alot and started to rust. I looked all over for a 2002 (the last of the breed), finally found one two states away and bought it.
    Now I have a problem, I have two Firebird Formula's and a pick-up and only a two car garage. So I sold the '91 to make room for the '02.

    Paint it whatever way you like. I did.

    Black for the intake and used Navy Blue/Red for the lettering

    I. Going to do it. I already spoke with my local tranny shop and with Gear Vendors. You buy a crossmember mounted torque arm, which is an improvement

    Does anyone know where I can obtain an adapter for the clutch actuator for a 2000 Camaro V8 to adapt an AN line to the stock GM fitting?

    I just purchased a used FAST 90mm intake today. I will port out the inlet to 92mm and then port the runners. I'm also going to paint it. Not sure if

    Right on. I'm hoping to push somewhere around there when I'm "done" with mine. I'm also thinking about doing a FAST 92mm.
