    Oh ......and start saving for a 9"

Not one problem out of the tranny or rear end. All this raping took place from 38k-65kmiles.
    yes some rears are just factory-freaks and some are factory-fawkups

    Black
    2002 Trans Am

    I just recently purchased a black ws6 in April and love the car. I wanted a 2002 because its the only one that can wear the last of the breed badge which draws attention and makes it seems more collectible to the average person. Had to be a m6 cause I know 10 years from now that will be heavily sought after. And I was lucky enough to find one with a 12bolt Moser rearend because the 10 bolt do go out fast. And I wanted black because personally I feel like a trans am traditional color from bandit to kit were blk and black rims are cheaper.

    Bought it with 49K in April 06. Strano package went on at 61K. Stall/headers/exhaust at 65K. H/C/I and stickys at 72K At 97K now with prolly only 30 track passes or so.

    It has a moderately loud roar from bearings and a pretty good whine from gear/pinion wear. Changed the fluid out in June and the magnet was covered with metal dust..... I won't launch it at the track on the MT's until I do a 12 bolt.

    427rwhp + et streets= no problems for me. Although I will admit the rear end was getting loud.
