    to tell you the truth..if your looking at the 00'...just pony up (no pun intended) and get a 01-02 ls1..they have the ls6 intake and are usually better cars..cleaner engine bay due to the lack of the air and egr system

    agreed...hate my stupid 2000 engine bay and all its ugly wires. Hopefully Y2K will be helping me take care of that soon. (I drive an SS, but engine bay is basically the same).

    and upgrade your injectors to 28s. and if a manual upgrade the hydrolic system and the clutch... like i said over all 01-02s are better cars..now if hes going to mod them heavy then f-that get a 98-00... but if he wants a relatively mild modded car then 01-02s are the way to go.

    I can't speak for him, but I think Shady was just listing the better performance options that came stock with the 01s and 02s versus the 98-00 Trans Ams...so he was making the point that, in addition to the other parts he mentioned, the injectors would have to be increased to have all the advantages of the 01-02 models....

    ...Like I said, that's just my interpretation of Shady's reply.....chime in if I'm wrong Shady lol...

    I have a 2000 TA, WS6. I did a heads/cam/headers install. I removed air/egr/cats and installed LS6 intake. Engine bay is cleaned up.

    the reason i asked why is because upgrading the injectors isnt cheap and youll only get a few h.p from upgrading unless you plan on modding your car for alot of h.p

    if you are doing major mods like h/c/i exhaust might as well move to the 30 lb svos like i did my 26s were maxed at 110 without using nitrous
