Trans Am Project Update - 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Third Gen
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV Many of you have been asking for an update on our Trans Am project, so we thought we better get one done. We weren't really prepared to do it, so the car isn't as clean as it should be. We have a lot of changes planned for the Trans Am and we'll do our best to keep you posted about the progress. Thought I'd go ahead and throw in a flyby and some burnout footage, just to make it a little more interesting. Thanks for watching!
1987 Trans Am 355ci TPI first drive...
This is a short vid of my 87 Trans Am after I finally got the engine running right. Before it would not idle but I figured out I had the valve spring rocker arms tightened too tight. It is a 355ci small block chevy with crappy truck heads along with a LT1 cam and a Tuned Port Injection intake manifold. Exhaust is Flowmaster, but I do not know what series. When the car is near the phone/camera, you can hear the loud hissing coming from the engine sucking in all that air! This is the first drive since I removed the 305 so I am still getting used to the pedal with power! The smoke is from the injectors running a bit rich since I had the fuel pressure turned up a bit high. This is also a good vid to see my sequential tailights!
