Hey everyone my name is Casey. Im from Little Rock, AR and new to the GM racing scene. Not new to racing just always been a ford boy and have owned many mustangs. Just been itching to build one of these Ls1 street cars. I own a 1999 Trans Am 6 spd (really wanted a Auto, but ran across a good deal on this one). Will eventually swap to TH350/400 when I start making serious power. This will be a nitrous car and want to keep streetable. So was wanting some help with does and donts, any help will be appreciated. I have read a little bit of forum and have some dumb questions, but i gots to ask. Will never learn if dont ask sorry to bore others with stuff they have probally heard before. Whats the A4 and M6 stuff mean? Whats a good rear gear ratio for my 6 spd (best performance, not worried bout gas mileage). Whats the best clutch for this 6 speeds? And also how much spray can this stock LS1 take (them ol fords where tuff trust me)? Whats stock fuel system good too and i will be using Dual Nozzle NX wet kit? Any help would be appreciated. THANKS
Any other sites I need to be checking out

welcome to the land or real cars. A4= automatic trans. M6= manual trans 6 speed. 4:11s are good all round gears until you get the point where you need to match the gear ratio the engine speed you run on the track.

Thanks, how bout 4.56s is that too much. Im liking this 6 spd probally dont need to mess it up by putting 4.56s. Guess ill start with 4.11s and play around with them.

I don't have experience with that much gear on the street but with the two overdrives on the M6 you would probably not have too much of an issue with them.
