Itís considered rare I have seen several over the years, especially at the Trans Am Nationals but they are few and far between.

Body Work Related Items / Clear Coated Engine Compartment
« Last post by may2022 on May 05, 2022, 11:58:27 AM »
Just wondering out there if anyone else out there has a 4th gen Firebird or Trans Am that came from the factory with the engine compartment clear coated.  My 1996 Ram Air Trans Am delivered to me on December 22, 1995 had the engine compartment clear coated at the factory and I have never seen another one since.

If the motor still works and itís just the cable thatís bad, they can be rebuilt.
I know www.thirdgen.org has a long thread about them.

Without an overdrive, Iíd personally prefer a 3.23 or 2.93 and a slightly loose torque converter (something that stalls near but under 3000 rpm). The thing with an automatic is you can compensate for a taller final drive by running a higher stall and still get the same torque multiplication as a shorter final drive but retain sane highway RPMs. Especially if youíre running a lockup torque converter. A 3.42 or 3.73 would be best if you were running a 200-4R or a manual transmission.

Suspension Related Items / Rear Axle Ratio
« Last post by may2022 on May 05, 2022, 11:54:06 AM »
What would you pick, 3.23 or 3.42 rear axle ratio?  345hp/420tq 403 olds TH350 stock converter, currently has 2.41 axle.  Occasional highway round trips of 60 miles, other than that usually cruising in town.  We live out of town so always have a 4-mile highway drive to get into town.  I was leaning towards the 3.42ís but now having some second thoughts on it being too steep.  No interstate driving really at all.

Check eBay or 3rd gen parts pages on facebook. Its no longer made so you have to source one out from a junk yard car or off parts pages.

So you mean just the bottom part of the seat, and not the top and bottom like this?

Body Work Related Items / Replace '88 Foam Seat
« Last post by may2022 on May 05, 2022, 11:51:30 AM »
I have an Ď88 Trans Am and looking to replace the foam in the seat. All I can find is for the whole seat. Is there some place that sells only for the bottom seat?
