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.

DEATH OF A TRANS AM WS6!!
After a year of beating on the stock block after all the mods, and
approaching 98k miles, the LS1 block finally started having excessing
blow-by in the cylinders and also blowing oil into the upper crankcase
housing. It ran strong, producing idle launch 1/4 times of 12.4 @ 118MPH.
But....IT'S TIME TO GO BIG!! Updates on the way...
Car has LS1 motor, cam, Dart Pro 1 stage 3 heads, headers, Borla Exhaust, cutout, LS6 intake, lid, K&N, tune, ASP
pulley, Hurst shifter, shift light, Nitto Drag Radials, DragLite wheels,
Moser 4.10 gears and more.

132328 / 2002 Pontiac Trans Am Firehawk
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/857s5er
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.
