    we are estimating around 750 hp, it still has the stock 10 bolt in the back, stock gears except welded for better traction, it tops out before it finishes the 1/4, so its hard to get a good time with it, but we have a local 1/8 mile track we went to, its the one in the pics, we ran 7.1, but we plan on switching the supercharger pulley around and gettin another 50-100 hp atleast, but its still in the works, and when we upgrade the 10 bolt, it will be a lot faster

    its just a plain jane firebird hood (flat type), Its got some light rust on underside of front of hood.

    BTW, your 83....... is a Trans am! The darker tail lights, rally gauges, and fender mounted heat extractors tell me its a trans am.





    thats the 1983 firebird.......
