Glad to hear you got the header bolts out without too much fuss.  Nice job! I was worried mine might be a problem because my motor looked a mess when I got it.  Even though I didn't have a problem removing mine, I chose to replace them rather than reuse the originals.  I don't recall if this was just me being cautious or if I found that recommendation somewhere else.  At any rate, I used these GMPP replacements:

GMPP 11547135 - 98-02 LS1 GM Exhaust Manifold Bolts (Set of 12). 
 $35.00 from

They are a GM part with the Loctite stuff already applied to the threads. IIRC this WS6Store had the best price. They were like $5.00 ea. elsewhere.

I have the Dakota Digital setup, the Trans Am is my third car to set up. Looks stock at the column and very straightforward to connect, biggest issue is adding a VSS. What I really like about it is you can tune it so when I changed from Auto to manual I just had to change one of the dip switches. The control box in the engine compartment doesn’t look out of place either and it doesn’t use vacuum to disconnect or control throttle.

Yea, both good thoughts. Funny thing is she still has another that was left in place that we built a closet around. I doubt he will want that one back as well. I even thought about offering him some money but then thought better of it (I can tend to be a bit hard headed,lol).

I guess country music artists like to write about Trans Ams....

I like this one better than the Thompson Square one.

Better yet ask him to go back to Home Depot and steal another one.
Yes, 2.73 is a 3-series carrier.
