Hello, new member here.  My name is C.J. located in Wichita Ks. Our car is a 1980 y84 ws6, the car originally was a 305, however 305 is long gone but we're rebuilding 350 that came with it. A close family friend gave my wife and I the car, After she drooled over it for years of course. It has had a repaint to orange, hey "orange is the new black" some may say. Lol, We are going to try and return it to black, just doesn't seem right the way it is. We decided this after finding out its a y84. First priority is to get it back together so it can be enjoyed again. We have had a few pontiacs over the years, I also own a 1980 malibu, and a 1979 cutlass bracket car, which I am also currently working on. I enjoy bracket racing, fishing and of course turning wrenches. Glad to join other pontiac enthusiasts on this great site!
Trans Am Information / 1980 y84 305 ws6 how many?

 Hello all , new member here! Just wondering if all 1980 y84 305 cars were also ws6?  I know some years y84 did not neccesarily mean it would be ws6. My car is a y84 with ws6 per phs documentation.  80 seems kinda like a weird year, kinda like they threw in parts just laying around. Wasnt sure what i had, thank god for phs. Also read y84 is an se correct me if im wrong.  Thanks
DriveTrain / Lacking power during acceleration
« Last post by johnny605 on May 18, 2017, 11:23:38 PM »
I'm proud owner of a 1981 Trans Am Turbo. Overall the car runs fine, but notice that when I accelerate from a complete stop, the car is slow to take off.  The car has no miss and does not stall.  I'm wondering if the PEVR may not be working correcting.  In need of help.
I would check the radiator.It may need to be re-cored or replaced.That's what I did to fix my 69 GTO.
Hi All,
My 78 Trans Am has been my daily driver, even being on a wheelchair for ever. Please, consider my limitations, I've change thermostat, flushed the radiator, but still car overheats on Highway! What else can I check?
Appreciate your help,
In Jesus Name

DriveTrain / Help! Fan shroud 1980 se 305
« Last post by Dragrcr1 on May 17, 2017, 11:47:57 PM »
Hello all! New to site.   I'm in need of some help figuring p/n for upper and lower fan shrouds for a 1980se with 305 chevy, would like it to be correct for this car since it is a fairly low production number car. Was going to check with gm as i have found the pontiac/olds v8 one through them. I have the pontiac/olds one on order, but I really dont think it is correct since someone trimmed it in past and it didnt look right. Does any other model interchange? I have only seen 1 pic on internet of the 305 shroud it looked as if it was a 2 piece, after hours of searching. Plz help getting very frustrating.  Thanks
