    How can I verify some of the mods my car has?

    So when I bought my Trans Am from the previous owner he said that the owner before him had all this work, but he didn't have the paper work at the time. I was completely fine paying the price I did without proof of said mods even if it were "stock" as a '98-'02 Trans Am is my dream car. After purchasing he lost contact with me and never got back with me on acquiring the proof from the previous owner.

    I never rode in a LS1 Trans Am so to me this thing seems ridiculously fast compared to my past cars (Fieros and a V6 Firebird..) so I honestly can't tell if it really is cranking out "400 hp". Supposedly the biggest mod is it having a 6.0 Aluminum GTO block? Plus a bunch of internal work like stronger lifts/blah blah blah which I know I wouldn't know without ripping apart into. The same for all the upgraded transmission work to handle the horsepower. So I'm guessing the only modification I can easily identify would be the block right with some type of identification stamped on?

    Knowing the difference in looks from stock to aftermarket alone will help.

    Easiest way for us to help you, would be to take a ton of pics and post them up. Several angles from under the hood, several of the from underneath the motor, and the drivetrain.

    Also, a local performance shop could as well, even some good tuners who are familiar with f-bodies would be able to help.

    Sounds good. It's currently really rainy and wet outside, and I have a car in my garage I can't pull out so it'll have to wait for pictures, but I'll try to get them soon so you all can help me identify if I really have a 6.0 block/etc.
