This setup is what i like.. Lots of potential power!

There are a few Pontiac guys around here but in Louisa, Va my Firebird is apex predator on the street/track. An hour away and not so, going to need a 7 sec. time slip to hang with them. I'm trying though.

The 67 Firebird will run on E 85

The Trans Am runs on pump gas. When I travel in the Tran Am I tend to not beat on it, never know how good the gas is and with the heat build up detonation is there.

I know you said you dont care about putting the springs in but if you do it will make even more power with that 6psi..

Whats the the size of this motor?

It will make more boost, I figure 10-12 lbs maybe 15 once I kick it up to 6-6500 rpms.. This motor is an IA2 block 4.5 stroke for 535 ci. The D1SC Procharger that's on it is good for 950 HP so once I hit about 750 RWHP that about all I'll get out of it.

I have 535's in both of my cars. Well the 67 has a 4.36 bore for 537 ci.

That motor needs an F-3

I think I will keep it like it is, traction is already a problem and packaging an F-3 is probably out of the question and besides, the A/C is pretty nice to have on those hot days.

The volute on a D1SC and F-1 are about the same at 9" the F-3 is 12". Right now the D1 slightly rubs the upper control arm and barely clears the hood. There is no way an F-3 will swap out in that location. I would have to completely re-do the entire pulley system and cooling system.

You are absolutely right and don't think I didn't walk up to it a dozen times thinking about pulling it out, and you are not helping me right now. Well it's too late now, I already got the new cam and dish pistons installed so, no turning back and the Trans Am is safe!!!!!!!!!!
