Garage
Vehicle Name Injuneer's Formula
Year 1994
Make Pontiac
Model Firebird Formula
Color Dark Green Metallic
History I purchased my Formula new in August 1994, from Thorsen Buick/Pontiac/GMC in Pasadena, CA. It came equipped with the T-56 6-speed manual trans, and was eventually upgraded to include a McLeod Street Twin clutch. All of that has been replaced by a TH-400 3-speed automatic with a Gear Vendors 0.78 overdrive unit.

It went through the usual bolt-ons, a small dry nitrous kit, and eventually got serious, currently a 381ci all forged setup, making a shade under 500HP at the flywheel on motor, and spraying a 300-shot on top of that.
