Detail gun also required.

SD 421 they matched pretty nice aftermarket.

Pro Touring GTO being built.

Drag Race to 8's be better.
that's right. that's what everybody's been calling it. pro touring gto. I always liked resto-mod myself. and the rattlecan said right on it "Pontiac blue"

Were missing a Veteran Pro cylinder head porter yet Junk.
Ron is floating around still.
The Sheepster is his Nickname.
Spent many nights talking to him on the phone.
He is one of the best at what he does.
Privateer also.
He is an old 2nd Gen F body fan too.
Had a 1970-1/2 Z28 Camaro LT1.
He loves my old TA.

You are correct, on both instances. They will do whatever it takes to protect a vendor and those vendors sell a lot of canned tunes.

Speaking of Chevy Power in a Pontiac , I am thinking of Famous record setting Race cars from my youth tonight Autowiz.

Do You know Gale Banks 1988 Trans Am GTA Salt Flat car has never been topped ?
THE RECORD STILL STANDS FOR FASTEST PRODUCTION CAR EVER RACING THE BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS.
283 MPH.
ON BLACKTOP IT WOULD BE AROUND 350 MPH.
SALT SLOWS YOU DOWN THAT MUCH.
2,200 HP. 25 PSI TWIN TURBO AIR TO WATER INTERCOOLERS.
EFI.
454 BBC.
PONTIAC BIG CHIEF PRO STOCK ALUMINIUM HEADS.
DONE IN 1987.

twin turbo is cheaper to setup than supercharger. supercharger and turbo would be crazy. compound forced induction. air filter attaches to the turbo in the rear of the car which feeds the inlet of the centri and then goes through intercooler before hitting throttle body.
