  • pull back the rear carpet, and slowly cut a hole in the sheet metal, that way you can get the pump from above.

  • With tires over 10 years old I can only think of Paul Walker, 9 year old tires on a Porsche. The tires will round out with driving, doing burnouts will only wear flats on them. Personally I'd replace the tires first.

  • these fuel pumps rely on the fuel to cool them, constantly driving on empty burns them out eventually. Check the throttle body, could be dirty enough to prevent air from getting in, just spray with cleaner and wipe. Something that simple with such a tight tolerance will prevent starting. At the end of the video says it's injectors, never use gas with Ethanol, it really gums up everything.

  • 80,000 miles is Nothing for a car of that age. Starting a car that sat requires pumping the gas pedal, something younger people are oblivious to. I had a 53 Caddy hadn't ran in who knows how long, just added gas, do dropping gas tanks. Additives can eat up the gummy stuff and save on labor. I'd try a $5 bottle first before going deeper, remember KISS, keep it simple stupid. Better to have just replaced the fuel filter and tried it after a can of cleaner.Check the fuel pump fuze?

And this glasses guy he needs to change them ... he cut the exhaust for this really no way so many joint sections are visible on the video 2 nuts a few inches from where he makes the non-reasonable cut....

  • First of all y’all messed up initially by cutting the exhaust and not dropping the rear end. An easier route is from the top and cutting through the trap door. Secondly that $1000 bill was because he didn’t know what he was doing and lastly good 🍩 doughnuts. Y’all tap in for all your LS n LT needs I’m the LS swap master on the West Coast hello💪🏾🤧

  • ive always known those tips to be called bow tie tips not sure if thats correct or not but thats what everyone in my area calls them, i have a 95 trans am that my dad got me while i was in high school an its sitting with around the same millage as this car but it had a accident an it doesnt get stored in a garage. it was fixed back mechanically an drives fine but it needs paint now from all the yrs an to take care of the accident that it had. but i love the car. i'll never part with it cause of all the nostalgia it gives me. i always wanted the ss camaro , firehawk and a mustang cobra. i have a sn95 cobra now, still got my old trans am and ive had a couple z28s an i still got some time to get a ss but my trans am will never be replaced.

  • I have a 93 z28. Looks to be the same options but mine’s a darker red. I’ve had it 12 years now. Bought it with 128,000 miles on it and now it has 177,000 on it (it was never my only car). A couple of optisparks (needed one when I got it, replacement MSD one cracked, back to a factory replacement one), 2 exhaust systems, front lower control arms, 2 sets of tires (first set was used), front pump on the trans, 2 rear shocks, and 1 fuel pump (trap door mod). Need to fix a leaky trans line and a leaky rear main seal and it needs a paint job bad.
