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.

Are you the first forum member to undergo and document this transition? I have seen these cars around on the internet, but never anyone actually on the forum. I think it looks freaking sweet.

The KIT/Conversions are very nice.

For the SUPER Chicken conversion AKA the Gen 2 - 78' (70'-81'), I would fill in the side quarter glass to be authentic though. That section of the belt line is a distinctive new Camaro design element... a carry over from Gen 1 Camaro / Firebird bodies.

Depends on which bird you are trying to re-create.
- Gen 5 Camaro conversion that keeps the quarter glass is a mimic of the Gen 1 bird, and should have a Gen 1 Bird front/tail end.

- Gen 5 Camaro conversion that fills in quarter glass is a mimic of the Gen 2 bird, and should have a Gen 2 Bird front/tail end.

Or whatever

I am loving those rims? Does TA depot sell them? I'd get the gold painted carbon flash and put them on my 45th.

Got to have the screaming chicken, not a Trans Am without it. Also, the "bulge" where they are mounting the T/A 6.2 is known as a shaker.

Had a '77 Bandit edition. Your conversion looks sweet!!
