    New Toy

    Hey guy's I'm picking this up Sunday. 96 Firebird was a v-6 5speed car. I know it need's work but the price was right. I would like some suggestion's on part's for it. Plan's LS motor and thinking 6speed transmission for now till I turn it into a race car.

    I like the idea of a big block. But i will agree with you Dave on the twin turbo's. Twin turbo was my original plan for it
