VEHICLE STORY

 I'm slowly upgrading this car with the end goal of going forced induction.  I'm learning the ropes and methodically changing things to see what works best.  Suspension and drivetrain upgrades is almost complete with plans on doing an IRS conversion in the not too distant future.  Outside of the exhaust fabrication, and most recent engine assembly, I've done all the work myself.

Hi Josh, thanks for the offer! The V6 is ~80lbs lighter on the nose, at least if I recall correctly. With the tubular front k-member, that drops the weight a little more. It's almost complete, waiting on some minor odds and ends.

I know girls don't like to hear this, but I think the Firebird needs to go on a diet.

Slowly but surely. I've installed a lot of tubular components that drop the weight some, have a fiberglass hood waiting to go on as well.
