    The thing you have to worry about with a gas blower as opposed to an electric blower is that on shitty models there's the chance that the blower will actually blow small oil particles....so, you just need to make sure the blower doesn't do it lol.
    It's stock.

    2002 Trans Am WS6 M6

    Pretty much just decided to recover the stock seats. Cant find an aftermarket seat that I like enough that wont cost me an arm and a leg by time i buy them and have them customized to my taste. If i was going to turn this into a track car i would be more willing to but for a show/cruiser it just doesn't seem worth it when i can put the money into other stuff.

    Most of the places i've talked to only charge a 200 - 400 more for real leather covers vs synthetics. Problem with vinyl or leatherette seat covers is that they just tend to be very shiny if cheaper but once you get into the nicer versions of them the shops are telling me for a couple to few hundred more i can just get real leather as long as i don't go crazy with the custom features.

    Big thing I've got to decide is what color I want to do the inserts. Started off thinking suede or alcantara but suede doesn't hold up all that well and alcantara gets expensive fast. Plus it requires a lot of maintenance and probably wont last as long as the leather. Problem i'm having is choosing a insert color that will go with both the cars current pewter color and the a variation of viper gun metal grey that i plan on repainting the car down the road in a few years.

    I've been reading ALL the threads on headers, EGR/AIR removal, motor mounts, and plugs/wires!

    This coming weekend, the car will be up on 24" 5t jack stands and the work will begin!

    Last year did the clutch, Tick MC, and UMI TA! I know what the underside looks like! ;-)

    Too bad you aren't a little closer -- we'd toss her up in the air and make short work of this swap!

    It'd be 2 trips! One to bring all the parts, two to get the car there! Wish I was closer too!
    I'd love to meet up this summer!🤗

    Something else to consider udy2554, since you're gonna be right there anyway, I highly recommend changing out the motor and Trans mounts to some polyurethane ones. It will translate a little more engine vibration to the car, but you won't have as big of a fear of pulling one in half once the hp numbers grow larger with the increase in mods.

    I hear ya! This'll be it for some time! I probably overdid it for now! I can't spend while I'm on my back under the car! Gas and tires will be it for the rest of the year!
