Just ordered the simple non-FI engine parts to go with the TA conversion. Rotofab intake, Kooks headers and cats, TA Depot custom exhaust (already installed), Texas Speed heads, ported TB, a baby cam and a custom dyno tune. Expecting around 470 to the wheels with great torque throughout.

I was just informed my TA will be delayed by another week or so as the new 3 piece read spoilers are coming in late. I did tell them to send me some updated photos asap...

Okay, everyone. TAD is telling me my hood looks "naked" without the screaming chicken. So, ahem..

"To bird, or not to bird, that is the question."

My initial thought was not to bird, because I think of this more as a 2013 TA, not a 77. But the style of this car is all about the 77, with the shaker, the front and rear, the lights, the t-tops, the snowflake wheels, even new gauges with 77 script... Normally, I am a guy who removes all badges and stickers and have people coming up and asking what the car is (my old G8 GXP, Solstice Coupe, even my current Durango), so the thought of a 3 foot chicken is a lot to swallow. I will post photos of both this week and we can let the opinions roll in. For sure, I need to see what it looks like without as they have never built one like this yet.

You bird guys are killing me. Here are more shots. I asked for a clearer shot of outside, front, side and rear.

Very nice! I like it without the bird personally. You have enough going on in the cabin to make up for it. Sweet conversion, can't wait to see more pictures!

There will be the "TA 6.2" on the bulge and the Trans Am graphic on the rear. I think I am going no bird to start, then can add later if I want when it goes back in for t-tops.

By any chance do you know what they did with the original LS3 exhaust? I'm looking for the mid pipes for my Camaro

Call TA Depot. They're taking it off now - it is the dual mode.
