My_94TA

I got this car March of ‘99 from a mature 1st owner in LA. Everything works on this car, it was tight and had only minor squeaks and rattles (compared to others I had test drove). It is fully loaded, T-tops, graphite leather, 10-speaker CD + equalizer system, 3.23 rear, factory oil-cooler and 4-wheel ABS. Also comes with leather-wrapped shift knob, brake handle and steering wheel. Audio controls are also on the steering wheel. This Chevy 5.7L motor, which outputs a standard 275 net hp and 325 lb-ft of torque, comes with the less-restrictive rev-limiter and the 150mph (240km/h) speedo.

Some pictures of my 94 T/A GT when I first got it.

Under normal driving conditions (wet or dry), I am very satisfied with the wheel/tire combo I bought. Where I was able to chirp the 16inch wheels (Falken Ziex502 rears) in 1st and 2nd, I haven’t been able to with the 17inch combo, even when I engage the “performance transmission” mode in my GT.

The STB has also served to tighten-up the front end considerably. I get good response going into corners and sweeping bends, and definitely less jarring on uneven surfaces, over train tracks and entering/exiting driveways. Just can’t go wrong with the BMR STB, and the bonus is the $cost.

My right rear Yoko picked up a nasty nail that pierced the tire at the corner of the tread and sidewall. No one wanted to fix it, so I went shopping for a set. Yoko AVS-S4 with size 275x40x17 was no longer available, so I had to decide between Pepboys’ Futura Ultra-Z or Kumho Ecsta 712. As you can see I picked the Kumho. No regrets here. They performed just as well as my Yokos in the dry, and I still can’t chirp the rears thru any gears....No idea how well they perform in the wet. I guess I’ll have to find out next year around April when it gets real wet around the East Bay of N. California.
