Nice little Firebird that you have. What are the plans?

Thank you all, I plan on taking out that 305 and replacing it with a crate 350 (408hp). All the normal performance mods, heads, cam, intake, exhaust, weight reductions, etc... right now i have the whole interior out, as you can see, and will be switching it from the gray to black (I would really love the digital dash in there too), there is some rust holes that need to be taken care of, and down the road I will change the paint color to Sunset Orange Metallic with some flat black strips or something. The plan is for the '86 to be a track car and trade the Vibe in on a 4th gen WS6 in Black as a daily driver.

I have a blog of my efforts so far...

350 nice swap for those cars just be careful of the transmission. When you do your swap are you keeping the Tuned Port?

Nothing for the Vibe, just keeping it clean and paying it down, getting ready for the WS6... hehe :lol2: I does currently have a K&N short ram.

Haven't decided yet, I might get a super ram.

I was just going to say if you do try and keep the tuned port, try and get the runners from edlebrock with corvette injectors but I am not sure if that will keep up to 408 hp.
