FIRST OFF I KNOW THE VID IS LONG BUT WATCH ALL OF IT, IT'S WORTH IT. This
is the first, of my videos of my Knight Rider Replica. It all started with
a 1982 Firebird Trans Am that I found sitting beside a guys barn. It was
there for a year or so but was previously stored for the past 23 years in a
garage. The project is going great so far I am starting with the exterior
first as the interior needs no restoration with the car only having 48,000
miles on it and is mint inside. This summer I hope to get the KITT nose and

91 Trans Am vs 04-05 subaru STI
Ran into this 04ish STI on the highway and went from around a 60mph roll.
Kid in the STI counted it off on his fingers and we went. No idea what was
done to the STI since we never got to talk to the kid but it seemed like
bolt ons/tune and looked lowered.
Firebird has a 350 with trick flow heads, XR288 cam, vic jr & 750 carb, T56
turbo 5.3 third gen dyno @ 11 PSI
IAT's were getting real hot and pulling timing. Made 501 this run on 7-8
degrees timing. First Dyno when it was still cool it
made 540 rwhp at 14-15 degrees timing. Have since added methanol to cool
the intake air charge and will be re-Dynoing soon!
