My WS6


The car finally arrived Friday, July 19, 1996. Dad picked it up for me in Miami on the 27th and there it sat in the garage until I flew down to get it. The car is a 1996 Pontiac Trans-Am WS6, Red w/graphite leather interior, T-tops, 6-speed, and the 1SC full-option package. I have a large set of plans for this car, and everything that I do will be documented here on this webpage. All performance mods will be tested on a Dynojet Inertia Chassis Dynamometer to verify what works and what it gave me. All graphs will be online for you to view or download along with Dynojet's new run viewer. A small graph icon next to a set of modifications indicates that before and after dyno runs are available.

Recent Developments:

After a long battle trying to get the car together for the 2001 Silver State Classic Challenge race, the final part of the puzzle left us. With the 12-bolt rear, new, shortened ACPT driveshaft, Star Stage 3 clutch/flywheel setup in place, the motor let go 8 miles out of Ely - the hub for the race.

Over the coming months, I will be assembling the parts to complete a twin turbo, intercooled 383 stroker. Performance is expected to be around 800 rear wheel horsepower. Check back frequently for updates on the project.

Pontiac's Ram Air System Evaluated

If you have a product that is designed to make an LT1 equipped Pontiac/Chevrolet go faster, and would like to see that product tested on a chassis dyno on an independent page, here is your chance. We are also always looking for sponsors for the car. Check out the Events page to see what we have planned. E-mail me to discuss the possibilities.
