Suspension / 1997 Trans Am - 1977 Trans Am
« Last post by prb on Today at 06:47:15 PM »
Hey guys,
I have a 1977 trans am that needs a drivetrain and some suspension work.  I also have 1997 TA that I wrecked, still runs and drives.  Has a LT1 and auto transmission.  My question is, will any of the suspension parts interchange?  And, how difficult is the fuel injection to install?  I have found some information and kits for LS 1, but not any LT1.  The LT1 is low miles, and I have been driving it daily, so I know the background of the drive train.  Very dependable. 
Any help will be appreciated.

I check in at times. I got some great information from this site. I think its just easier to turn to FB groups as sharing a photo and get answers or suggestions more quickly. Overall this is a great forum and my favorite.

My car appears to be a darker version of the 1980 color Fiero Bronze, leading me think it is some sort of earlier version of that color. Chesterfield, heritage brown, and brentwood brown all appear the same, is there something like this for Fiero bronze?

My car is a mix between orange and copper, whereas chesterfield brown is a deep brown color. The paint code is 69 according to the trim tag, however the floors appear to be the color the car currently is.

Did you mean Chesterfield Brown? Heritage is a '79 color.

Hey everyone, I recently bought a 78 firebird formula in copper, but I am unsure the actual paint color name. Can't seem to attach a photo, the site claims it is too large of a file. The trim tag says heritage brown, but I have found no examples of this color. Any ideas? Thanks,

Depends. Do you live in an area that requires emissions testing? Changing the cam profile may make passing such test difficult or impossible. Some areas have exemption waivers - check your local DMV. 

Aside from that, it is a cost benefit analysis....
- unmolested original vs modified
- desire vs need
- cost vs power added
- done yourself (time) vs pay a shop (money).

Something to consider...a true dual exhaust (if it doesn't have one) could increase power as much as 10-12% depending upon set up. It could be the best bang for your buck $800-1200. It would also be a period correct modification if you are concerned about originality.

Restoration / Re: Grill insert black paint type?
« Last post by RENOVATIONS on August 19, 2017, 12:41:43 AM »
I have a 76 TA and looking to restore my grills.  The chrome around the edge is flaked off the plastic.  Does yours have this and/or how do you plan to restore that part?
