Recent updates.

Suspension....I've bought a new frame locally to work on for my car after waiting and waiting for Dave at PTFB to supply my coilover suspension, lower control arms, g-braces, sway bar brace, etc.  I paid him in full a year ago, have not received my parts and the business has moved to Tennessee.  I've tried numerous times to get him to finish what I paid him for but every week there's a new story or excuse.  It's just a shame because I know him as a friend and I've helped work in the shop a lot this past year but I just don't think he will finish my stuff at this point.  I am now trying out Global West for suspension.

Engine...I recently acquired two 454 TBI's and a '81 301 Turbo HEI distributor.  I am using the '81 301 turbo distributor because it's a 7-wire computer controlled HEI (no weights/spring/vacuum can).  Currently, the distributor is being gone through by a specialist in that area.  Once the distributor gets back, I plan on sending the 454 TBI to Sean at SPR Performance so he can bore out the throttle body and modify it so I can run an external fuel pressure regulator

Exterior/Body...Just traded my shaker hood for a 301 Turbo hood from an '81.  I'm going to try and graft in a 3rd gen '82-'84 cowl induction setup because the hood bulge is the same between 2nd-3rd gen.  It's stupid that this is now my 4th hood for the car but I feel very excited about this one. 
Thank you all for responding to my post. I believe the car runs very high and losses coolant as a result of it.
Everything is original on the car.

i recently bought an 1981 trans am turbo knowing the turbo was bad. purchased a turbo from someone nearby that looked identical except for the copper tube that goes into the top of the engine block. its a much thinner tube connecting to a threaded elbow. im thinking it may have been from an 80' TTA? how do i make this turbo work for my car?
Still has factory fan snd radiator shroud?
This is exactly what I was wondering. Has the factory shroud been removed or changed? How about the fan or clutch? 4 core rad or 3 core?

I appreciate the compliment!  I was awe-struck by the 77 & 78 Y82 SE's when I was a teenager (and that never went away), but the factory Martinigue Blue T/A's have a beauty that is all their own.
Why was this moved.  WTF
