Got it fired up yesterday. Had to supply fuel through the intake to keep it running. Vats are enabled and I'm swapping in the 4th gen plastic tank.

I bet that felt good to get it running. Looks like you still have a bit to go. Looks forward to seeing it in person.

Re: Florida thirdgens

As the owner of 2 4th gens Trans Ams, you will enjoy the increased power over the 3rd gen engine. Sounds good.

Just bought this today, 3rd car i've ever owned and i'm in love so far! Would definitely love to swap out the v6 for a 305 down the road, but for now it'll do nicely the way it is

Nice car man! I have always liked the SC's I have seen people lower these and they look awesome with no GFX!
I am in Jupiter, Maybe we can meet up at a local cruise in or C&C .I heard the one @ Lowe's in Stuart is a pretty good one,

Re: Florida thirdgens

Put the LS and the T56 in the car last night. Waiting on the Hawk's crossmember so I can bolt the trans in completely, and get the headers on.
