yeah that is parish. he is the main inspiration for this build. i have one of his low boost cam comparison dynos on this thread along with a few other links to his car.

i have always loved the lsx engines as well

Tom will be the one doing the dyno tune on this car. i will talk to parish about getting a base tune since i will be getting my megasquirt from him. i will post track times as well as dyno sheets as this project progresses.

^lmao. most assinine statement ever. t/a's are sex on wheels dude. and im all about straight line drag racing. there isnt an auto-x track for atleast 3 hours of me in any direction. sgmp in cecil/valdosta is about 1 hour away and its probobly the nicest 1/4 mile dragstrip in the country. also dmp dragway is about 20 mins from my house so we hang out there alot too. twisties is great but theres nothing like pulling the front tires leaving the redlight with a 500hp ls1.

I didn't use to like the 99+ Trans Ams, but I have to admit they've grown on me with the passage of time. I saw a yellow/black WS6 on Market St. in San Francisco that sounded SICK. People on the sidewalks were getting startled when he would rev the engine.

My all-time favorite TA though is the 87-92 GTA with the 5.7 liter (Dwight's car on The Office; my aunt had one also). A LSx swap into that would be SWEET in my humble opinion.
