    This statement wasn't really directed towards this build. This build with a roll cage and all, would be kinda hard to street race saying the car was "Stock". I was just saying in general for an f-body, The org a/c location would be a good "sneaky pete" location.

    Up to the point where I was informed that my pistons could not handle nitrous, I was planning on a two-stage plate system. 200-shot would have been fun, and definitely not hidden.

    Fuel Cell:






    Replacing the Torque Arm Bracket that was damaged when we were moving it around the lot:




    Upgrading from 1.75" headers to 2" (non-stepped) headers:








    Hey look...rear is on the ground supported by its own suspension:


    K-member bolted up:


    And down:


    This might be a slight problem...transmission cross member doesn't line up...I guess the 93-94s that had the 700R have different bodies too? I'll have to figure out how to fabricate something.

    Hey man stopped by the thread and it is very inspirational. I can only imagine how excited you must be to give the first breath of life into Frankennymph. I thought i had my hands full with replacing the trans mission...you have literally redone everything on that 93-94 firebird trans am hybrid. Great job and great progress. looking forward to seeing the final out come of this monster that has been in a dormant sleep

    ok quick question jeremy. since you have had expierince in tearing apart well pretty much anything. i was wondering if you were familiar with the "gangster lean" or the "fat bitch lean" in our f-bodies. Now i have already read a few posts on some ways you can correct it. but i wanted to see if you knew of any other ways to correct this lean other than the "panhard method" or the "add more busings to the rear stabilizer method" or if anyone on here sees this what your opinions on this would be

    are you talking about how it tends to lean more so on the passenger side then level on launching?

    yes it leans on the passenger side 3/4" i have seen all of the to do's for the lean but wanted to see if there was any other ways besides those to correct it. Ls1tech had a good forum on it but i just want to see if there is a better more effiecient way then spending a ton of money on suspension gear or stqacking more bushings on the rear stabilator...sorry i am not trying to jack your thread jeremy. need some more pics of that project up man.

    Uni-body car...nothing is perfect. Installing an adjustable panhard bar corrects some of it. I now have adjustable springs all around now, so my car will be sitting perfectly level on all four corners.

    Yes. Once I am done, you won't be able to tell it's a different car.

    Nothing new...I've been fighting a cold. As for the transmission crossmember, I bought a LT1 T56 Crossmember from a guy on Tech.

    Thanks man. I actually just lost the shop...my friend that was working there quit, so I'm on the hook fro rent now. I'm moving the car back to my house this weekend, so expect a change of background with the coming pictures.

    As for the color, I am sticking with black. I love how nasty my car looks, and with as much time as I spent looking for a black M6 WS6, she's staying that color.
