Quick Shifting vs. Powershifting
BEFORE YOU COMMENT :
-The purpose of this video is only to show the difference between quick
shifting and powershifting.
-Constructive comments are welcome.
-Stop whining about the shape of the transmission. I don't drive like that
all day everyday, and it still shifts like butter (must be done properly
-Whining about the position of my hand on the steering wheel is also
irrelevant. I usually drive with both hands on it, but during the making
of the video I happened to let one hand on the shifter because I felt like
it (multiple shifts on a short time).
-Thanks for watching and let the VTEC kick in, yo !
Quick lifted shifts vs full throttle powershifts. Powershifting means that
you never leave your foot off the gas while shifting. Also added some rev
matching near the end.
132328 / 2002 Pontiac Trans Am Firehawk

If you review our sold inventory, you'll see quite a few late Firehawks on
the list. Low-mileage examples that have been expertly maintained typically
sell within days—they're incredibly popular, even nearly ten years after
production ended. Sometimes, however, we get truly exceptional cars, and
this supercharged Firehawk with just 7228 original miles certainly
qualifies. Fast, black, and fully documented, this is the Firehawk to own
if you're looking for the ultimate street brawler.
With a pile of receipts for all the work, there's a good $15,000 invested
in getting this car to run as well as it does. The stock LS1 is augmented
by a ProCharger Supercharger installed
by Hutter Performance in Chardon, Ohio. The blower lives down low in the
engine bay, and feeds an air-to-air Intercooler up top that force feeds the
engine cool, pressurized air. Dyno sheets that accompany the
car peg the output at an impressive 454 rear-wheel horsepower. The rest of the
engine bay is largely stock but beautifully maintained, with no signs of
abuse or damage, and certainly no corrosion from being driven in foul
weather. This car has been a toy from day one.
In 2002, a vast majority of Firehawks were equipped with 6-speed manuals,
but this one carries a 4-speed automatic, and is one of only 489 cars so
equipped, and one of only 364 Trans Am Firehawks with an automatic, so it's
a very rare piece. While some will scoff at the automatic, combined with
the Supercharger, it makes for a very
potent street car that's flat-out deadly in bracket racing at the track.
This car also includes the optional Bilstein Ultra Performance Suspension
Package, which really sharpens up the Firehawk's reflexes on the street.
Wheels are optional Firehawk chrome alloys wearing Drag Radials.
Now back to that Ebony Black bodywork—it's as nice as any 9-year-old car
we've ever seen. The paint is in excellent condition, and I'd be surprised
if this car has spent any significant time in the rain. In addition to the
standard Trans Am and Firehawk graphics, including the Firehawk monogram on
the doors, this one has a set of electric blue stripes from Phoenix
Graphix, which really sets it apart. This Firehawk also carries the
optional rear deck lid spoiler, which makes the car seem longer and lower
than the standard Trans Am piece.
The black leather interior is equally well preserved, although it does
sport a few noteworthy upgrades. The first thing you'll notice are the
A-pillar mounted Auto Meter gauges for Boost and fuel pressure; critical if you're
going to run a Supercharger. The deeply
sculpted black leather seats are in excellent condition and snow almost no
wear, despite being almost a decade old. Jim Wangers, the legendary Pontiac
advertising executive, has personally signed the passenger side sun visor
on this car, and was obviously impressed by the build quality and overall
condition of this car.

2001 Formula Stock motor doing wheelie
Took my 2001 Formula to the track, its got an SS4000 converter, QA1
Suspension, and 3.73 gears. I broke two 10 bolts in 2 weeks, so I put a
Moser 12 bolt in it. Suspensions is set up amazing, and for a stock motor,
stock manifolds and stock cats, its running very well, and pulling the
tire(s?) about 5" for 8 ft or so.
2010 Trans Am Firehawk Tribute
Between 1996 and 2002 the Firehawk Trans Am set a new mark for style and
performance. These highly collectable Pontiacs quickly became a favorite
among Trans Am enthusiasts. On the eve of production of the Kevin Morgan
designed and licensed Trans Am, Morgan and Trans Am Depot were commissioned
to build their version of the Firehawk using their new production design.
The owner of this 2010 Trans Am Firehawk has the largest collection of
Firehawks in existence and a muscle car collection of over 300 show cars.
The challenge given to Morgan and Trans Am Depot was to design and build a
one-off "Firehawk" that would respectively honor and pay tribute to both
the Firehawk name and legacy.
