No more boat anchor LT1 - 2000 Trans Am

After giving up on getting a 16-17 SS because I am poor, I decided to start looking for a 00-02 trans am or ws6. WS6s are calling a lot of money, when really, everything would be replaced besides the hood.

So I posted on LS1tech with an ISO/WTB post and someone from NC messaged me saying he had a stock 00 TA. I sent carchex out to look at it, and he sent pics, very clean. Few days later, it is here at my doorstep

2000 Trans Am, ~119k miles, only mod was a t handle hurst shifter



First mod was removing the handle, luckily the stock knob was in the glovebox


First real mod was reverse LEDs, because yeah stock bulbs suck


While in there, did some race car weight reduction with some help.


I have an SLP Lid for it and a tick short throw. Going to order madhammer (gmmg), strano/koni yellows, and hunt for some sportline 17s

I turned to the dark side, abandoning LT1 camp

I "collect" spares, lol. The 4th gen ones are great for rollers and bigger brake setups. I think I have 3 4th gen spares, but one is an LT1 style. Would love to get a couple more LS style ones

Sweet, thanks.
When I had to push my Formula into the garage I put 4 spares on it to make it easier to roll, worked well and it looked funny AF. Pushing it meant going uphill and across the sidewalk apron

Spoke with Larry. Going to do an LS7 clutch setup and a standard rebuild from drivetrain dynamics, making it secure for about 450hp/torque which i wont hit for a very long time lol. I might have him toss on the catback/ac bracket depending on how much the rebuild will run me
