    put a type r in it and you will beat it all motor. spend 5 grand on the swap and bet the extra g on the race. you'll have bragging rights and 2 grand.

    I say put in a B18, you should be running high 13's low 14's, if you can drive then with the extra money put in a shot of nitrous just to be safe. I say a 50 shot should be sufficient enough.

    Well, if you arent a noob, i'd recommend the following-

    b18b
    drag/revhard turbo kit
    act clutch
    stand alone fuel management

    That would net you high 12's if you could drive...

    But as far as the original question: "I want to be able to beat a 2000 trans am - CAN I DO IT ?"

    Just ask the 8 ball :)
