We've decided to see what we can do with a RWD 3800 so I went out a bought a 1998 Pontiac Firebird 3800 series II. I then took the car to Bob (B&R Racing) for all the work on the chassis to be done. The car is Backhalfed and 4-linked. It's getting a chome moly cage and much much more. Here are some pics of when I first got the car.
http://www.intense-racing.com/pics/firebird/page_01.htm


The power plant will be an
Intense 8.0:1 Race block
Intense Stage 4 heads
Intense Stage 4 Turbo cam
Twin Gt35r ballbearing turbos
Liquid to air IC
ATI TH400 race trans with transbrake and all the goodies
ATI custom convertor
3.5 chrome moly DS
The rear end is a Ford 9" with
Strange N case and Pro gears 35 spline axles
Brakes are Aerospace lightweight race brakes with 4 piston calipers all the way around
QA1 drag race coil overs with 12 way adjustments all around

I don't have any recent pics but here are a couple of the last pics take




I'll try and get some more pics this weekend and keep you updated.

Yea, thats the truth. But i hope this works out for ya Tim, cause i still want a turbo kit when/if you come out with them, for my bird lol. How long do you think it will take ya to get the firebird running? Oh by the way this is Gary (purple firebird) from tuesday night.

Thats not what you told me on the phone last week!:icon_conf
I think youll get what you told me though. That would be SWEEEEET!!!! If someone can make 395 fwhp out of a S1X cam, they can do this!!!
I was actually kind of short for words after you were giving me all the secrets.:icon_redf
Best of luck to you man, its one sweet project.
