Ahh man thanks a lot! Wish I had the funds to get me some ported and polished LS6 heads, a 12 bolt and a FAST 92/92 set up.. With the heads, intake and throttle body set up, I would prolly make 460 RWHP

Go ford nine, much easier to change gears, and cheaper. I had Lloyd Elliot do my cam, and Afr heads. I still have my complete 4.5 in mufflex exhaust if your interested. It was a $1000 setup.

Mathematically aligned my e-code headlamps according to D. Sterns instructions. http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech/aim/aim.html Fairly easy, just takes some time and finesse.

Ps. The 5.9 pulls like a mother on snow/ice. 4PT + LSD = Maybe I do like these BFG Long Trail tires after all...

No. I did raise peacocks as a kid though lol. I've been a car nut since I was knee high to a grasshopper. That car was my dream car, so I built it, then sold it after a HUGE event that changed my life forever. That was the last of my insane street car projects. Sold that, and my race quads, drag sleds, now just nice tame street cars and slow crawling rock rigs. Life does change sometimes, but at least that and really all my babies have been sold the locals who saw them and dreamed of owning them, so they are all in good homes, and I get to visit often. The ta was turned back into a street machine with a 432 eHp engine, then sold off all the really good stuff.

I have a baby 228/232 cam.. As you said on stock 241 heads and stock LS6 intake.. My exhaust is all custom.. My GMMG c/b alone was $1,100 | QTP LTs | Kooks 3" O/R Y-Pipe | Flowmaster Merge | Powerstick Bullet Muffler | DMH E-CutOut | GMMG Catback.

My car isn't a track car. It's really only a summer/garage queen car. No need for a Ford nine. A 12 bolt would do me jsut fine. My car hasn't seen rain since 2005 and has never seen snow. Sits mostly in the garage untouched.

Here is how my car sits

Beautiful car. I built my 9 before 12s where popular. My car is actually a 94 that I replaced everything with 02 parts, except it had an lt in it. Last pic is installing the 433hp street engine, to sell it.

Wow a 94... I would have never guessed it. Are all the front and rear fenders from 93-97 the same as 98-02? Or did you find a donor car and just strip it and put it on the 94?

I'm actually thinking of selling my Trans Am I jsut never drive it anymore and I could use the money for new money pit; JEEP.. hahah

My Jeep really needs 4.11s or 4.30 gears. In the spring I plan on an APN header, 99+ intake Neon (703) injectors, port the TB and maybe a hi-flow cat and re-do the exhaust to 2.5" from the header back... The jeep is sooooooo damn slow

Entire front clip, taillights, t-tops, seats, gauges, and the brakes are different. The rest is the same. I bought new gm parts for the clip, the rest I bought over time on eBay. Wasn't gonna do the tops but one morning I realized I forgot to latch one at about 110. I sold mine after it sat in the shed for 2 years.

On your jeep I would do an ls swap, or 360. I'll have around $1500 in mine turn key with 350 Hp.
