Turbo Trans am ls1 KYTP first startup and drive
Got it started up and out of the driveway. Shortly thereafter it overheated. No worries, we were able to burb the coolant system the next day and the temps stayed at a respectable level.
LT1 Trans Am 600+hp Lapeer Dragway
8psi. 92 Octane. Stock car meaning all stock weight, trans, axle, sway bar.. Modified Motor meaning 383, AI ported heads + cam and a Supercharger. This setup was Dyno'd at 570rwhp and climbing at the limiter (~650hp) @ 6200rpm with ~34 degrees total timing, proven on the Dyno with video attached in my profile. Since the Dyno I pulled 6-7 degrees for safety for things like this video so who knows what power, 550-560 at the wheels? How about running Rice Boost levels? (20-30psi)? haha.
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. Motor work was done at East Texas Muscle Cars. Airbrushing by Allen Jonez - lid design is from the Disturbed Ten Thousand Fists album.
