    This is one inspiring build! My buddy will take a new Trans Am project right after we finished installing the new brake pads and ion wheels on his truck. I'll show him this build.

    Thanks Derek, it has been a long time coming. Can't wait to get it all together and start making some track hits in the future.

    Alex Healey's 2001 Pontiac Trans Am

    Hey guys & girls. I thought I'd share my project on here to go along with the rest of the Holley family. I have owned this car for eight years. It began as my daily driver in high school, and has evolved a lot since then. Prior to the current build, it made 530 horsepower and 498 lb/ft of torque at the wheels with a 408 cubic inch LQ9-based engine with a custom ground cam, AFR 225 heads, a FAST 90 mm intake, and much more. After awhile, I got used to that power and the 10.60 elapsed times it brought in the 1/4 mile at 128 mph. Without further ado, here is the current modification list:

    -Forged LS2-based short block assembled by Late Model Engines (366 cid, 9.68:1 static compression ratio)
    -Trick Flow 235 cylinder heads
    -Custom specced cam from Sanders Induction Solutions (243°/247°, .624"/.624", 115+4 LSA)
    -Custom headers by J&J Motorsports
    -Custom turbo hot side, cold side, and fender exit exhaust by D3 Engineering and J&J Motorsports
    -Custom air-to-water intercooler and radiator/radiator support by D3 Engineering
    -Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake manifold with Holley 4150 4bbl throttle body and Extreme Velocity carb hat
    -LS9 head gaskets
    -Forced Inductions Borg Warner S485R Turbo with ET-R HO billet wheel
    -Injector Dynamics 1300 cc/min injectors
    -Holley brushless Ultra Dominator fuel pump and regulator
    -Dedenbear CO2 system for boost control

    -ATI Superglide 1 with transbrake
    -ATI fuel/blown series torque converter
    -BMR transmission crossmember
    -PST 4" aluminum driveshaft
    -Burkhart Chassis 9" housing
    -Moser aluminum center section
    -3.50 gear, spool, 40-spline gun-drilled and star-flanged axles

    -Custom-valved Menscer Motorsports AFCO shocks front and rear
    -Burkhart Chassis lower control arms
    -Burkhart Chassis torque arm
    -Burkhart Chassis rear anti-roll bar
    -Spohn chromoly tubular k-member and engine mounts
    -10-point chromoly cage by Jessie's Garage
    -Weld-in subframe connectors
    -Madman SYA bars
    -Aerospace drag brakes (dual calipers on the rear)

    -Holeshot Revolver wheels, 15"x10" rear, 15"x3.5" front
    -Mickey Thompson 275/60/15 drag radials
    -Mickey Thompson front runners

    -Holley Dominator EFI
    -Holley Digital Dash

    -Wolfe Racecraft mini-tubs
    -VFN Fiberglass pin-on cowl hood with DZUS fasteners

    In this video, the car is equipped with a Holley Brushless Ultra Dominator fuel pump, which allowed us to push the car to 20 psi before the injectors were maxed out. This yielded 1,038 horsepower.
