1991 Formula Firebird WS6 0-60 0-100 Acceleration & Walkaround
Just a brief video of my new Firebird.
Has a brief walkaround and a little 0-100 pull at near WOT with a very
babied launch (tranny is still being broken in so I'm being easy on it)
350 TPI with 57,000 miles on it pulled out of a 92 firebird (245 crank
Has a intake/chip/mild cam/Exhaust/global west subframe connectors backed
by the WS6 suspension. Tranny has a B&M Shift Kit.
Body of the car has 120,000 on it - odometer reads different because the
current gauge cluster which is a 140mph cluster was swapped in for the old
I'm basically enjoying driving it for a few months before I put it into
winter storage and begin working to restore/fix the worst parts of the car
- basically being the floorpans and the interior. Have seat covers for the
seats now but am going to pull the leather seats out of a 4th gen fbody to
replace the current ones.
Needs a few other minor things - going to fix some rust as well.
Overall, I bought it for $2700 - I can't complain!
