    Winter plans

    What are you plans for the coming winter?

    Mine...

    - New GM Certified Carpet
    - Wolfe 6-Point Roll Cage
    - 6LE Racing Seats
    - 5-Point Racing Harnesses
    - Panhard Relocation Bar to make more room for my exhaust
    - 3-Point SFCs...maybe, going to start another thread to see if this is a viable upgrade from my 2-point SFCs.
    - Spohn K-Member
    - Spohn Adjustable A-Arms
    - Powdercoating Spindles
    - C5 Front Brake Upgrade
    - More Engine Bay Cleanup (keeping this part a secret because I want to surprise pajeff02 at the next Spazpalooza )
    - Serious alignment...suspension upgrades will be done, so I want the suspension to be aligned perfectly, so I don't have to F**k with it again
    - Cancer removal on underside...Por-15 ftw
    - Actually finish the nitrous install. I've been slacking because the reason for me getting nitrous disappeared (Corvette friend sold his S/C), so I've had no incentive.
    2000 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 M6: 427ci LS3, Built T56, Moser 9" w/ 4.11 Gearing, Full Suspension, and 6-point Cage.

    Keeping secrets? Now I am intrigued.

    I just ordered a transmission cooler and plan on upgrading the transmission, torque converter, and replacing the rear main seal while everything is apart. May add a trans temp gauge somewhere. Other possibility is a UMI tubular K-member, motor mounts and front LCA's.

    I don't have all the parts yet to do it. Plus the cash flow is not there either. You are safe from the motor swap. But I can't promise you about upgrading current motor....

    I would go with the trans temp no matter what. What size stall have you been looking at?

    Also what are front LCA's? Do you mean a arms?

    Yeah, I think he means A-Arms...I think both are correct terms.

    A-arms. Not sure yet on stall... have to think about it a bit. The lowest would be 2,800 and the highest 3,600.

    What gears do you have now? I would personally go with 3400-3600. Have you put thoughts on a cam yet?


    ....i might have a 4k for sale soon. I think I am going with a 4400
