    need some advice on build

    I have a 2000 trans am, a4 2.73 rear end. I just got a loan for $3000 and my goal is around 400whp

    My engine is burning a good deal of oil , so thats why i decided to do it now. . hile i have it apart ... might as well do some fun stuff. I got lowering spring&shocks.

    My list includes:
    subframe connectors
    3.73 gears
    torque arm?
    Comp Cam and valvetrain package + rockers/pushrods (want to rev to 6500)
    HP tuners
    Flow tech ceramic coated long tubes & y-pipe
    Dyno time
    the rest will be spent on maintenance like water pump, adjustable timing chain, etc etc

    Any recomendations while im having this done? appreciate any feedback.

    You need a stall converter. Go ahead with a new ported oil pump.
