1998 Modded Trans Am

PM or text/call 321-328-7399

Pics are not recent. http://s253.photobucket.com/albums/h...%20Trans%20Am/

$5,500 OBO. Trade options listed below. Can do pics upon request until I get them in the ad. I'm not in a hurry to sell it, so please don't think you can low ball your way into a deal. At least attempt to wine and dine me with some good haggling.

Buyer pays shipping, tax, title, license. I have a few people I could recommend for good shipping quotes though.


1998 Pontiac Trans Am
Clear Kentucky Title in my name
The car runs good and pulls extremely hard, but has been a pain to get started lately.

LS1

85,xxx miles
2,xxx miles since all modifications
Car turned 404hp/391tq AT SEA LEVEL. Numbers will be lower here.
At R.P.M. in Garner, NC, the car was custom tuned by Ryan Robinson who also built the fastest Nitrous LS based car and held the record for three years and also built the fastest SUV in the country at the time.
Has not been on the track since it was stock so no times.
Has been in storage since 2008. It has a few rough spots as well as some dust and dirt from sitting inside a dusty shop.

Engine modifications:

5.3l heads, ported, polished, milled to 58cc chambers
Futral Motorsports F13 Cam, 230/232, .595/.585, 112LSA
Comp 918 beehive valve springs
Comp pushrods
Stock rocker arms
Morel lifters
Cometics head gaskets, .042
BBK intake (powdercoated intake)
Ported and polished LS6 throttle body
MTI induction lid
Later LS6 style valve covers (powdercoated black)
Hooker ceramic coated longtube headers
Dual dynomax bullets, dumped at the back of the trans
LS2 Timing chain
LS6 Oil pump

Trans:

The car was originally a six speed but I swapped out to a built TH350. It still retains the clutch mechanism and pedal for the manual trans.
Does not include manual trans.
Built TH350
Coan 4200 custom spec'd converter. I don't know the STR.
B&M hammer shifter
Trans cooler
Steel custom length driveshaft
BMR transmission crossmember (powdercoated red)
Lokar dipstick

Rearend:

The rearend is a stock GM 10 bolt with 3.42:1 gears.

For an extra $1500.00 - A BRAND NEW Strange GM 12 bolt will come with the car. It is narrowed 3" each side, spooled, 33 spline axles, 5/8" lugs, and has an LPW Ultimate aluminum cover with adjustments for loading the main caps. I am selling the rearend seperately for $1950.00

Suspension modifications:

QA1 coil overs on the front with 275lb. springs
Spohn adjustable torque arm (powdercoated red)
Spohn adjustable cross member brace (powdercoated red)
BMR transmission crossmember (powdercoated red)
Spohn adjustable panhard bar (powdercoated red)\
UMI Performance subframe connectors (painted red)
UMI Performance adjustable lower control arms (powdercoated red)
Softer than stock rear springs (from a V6 car)
Factory rear shocks
Factory rear sway bar
Front sway bar removed (no, I don't have it anymore)

Weight removed and no, I don't have any of this stuff anymore:

Front sway bar
Rear seats
Sound system (head unit, speakers)
Heat, to include all ducting and heater controls
AC unit, to include the AC condenser, AC unit on the firewall, and all controls
Power steering system
Traction control system
ABS system
Airbags
Spare tire and jack
Front bumper support
Rear bumper support
Foglights
Front turn signals
Front inner bumpers have material removed

Misc. mods are as follows:

Line lock
Adj. brake proportioning valve
Nitto 555R rear tires with approx. 60% tread left
Front tires have approx. 80% tread

The only trades (and of course cash to even up the trade, either from my side or yours) I will consider are:

KTM 950 Super Enduro
Trials bike

The bad:

Some of this I've been working on off an on.

It is obviously missing a lot of stuff. On one hand it's light. On the other hand it has no options anymore.
4" tear in the drivers seat
It's dirty.
Battery is dead.
Slight oil leak, I believe it's the rear main.
There is a few (less than 5) quarter sized spots on the paint where the clear is looking cruddy.
The paint is about 70% gone on the back bumper where someone ran into me. The bumper brace was out so the bumper popped in and then back out. The bumper is still good, it just needs paint.
The right front fender well has this big hole (about 1.5" in diameter) from the previous owner.
It's missing the coolant over flow tank. When it gets hot, it just bleeds off the excess coolant to the ground.
It needs a battery tie down.
