1982 Pontiac Firebird - 2.5 L4 Iron Duke
Video taken June 16th 2007
2 years ago, my friend and I discovered a 1982 Pontiac Firebird (Right Hand
Drive) advertised on carsales.com.au.
Being that the current law for probationary drivers is NO V8's, I realised
that I was unable to buy a Trans Am for my first car. The only alternatives
I saw at the time were to find a V6 or a L4 Firebird which I was convinced
there were none of in the country.
Once I came accross this one I was determined to test drive it and see
whether or not it was a good decision for me to buy. (I ended up buying an
87 Pontiac Fiero GT which worked out better than if I had bought the 82
Firebird as restoration costs would have been too expensive and I wasn't
really fond of the Duke's Performance).
Since this was the only L4 Firebird we knew of, we test drove it anyway and
learned how a 25 year old economy engine performs in a vehicle as heavy as
the 3rd gen Firebird.................
1982 Pontiac Firebird TransAm LG4 305 to 350 TBI (throttle body injection) swap - second test start
We took a 350 with TBI from a 1989 suburban for this project. The car
didn't come with an engine or transmission.
Stages in this swap:
1. Fitting & Pre-Install Evaluation
2. Installation of Engine and Transmission
3. Wiring Harness Adaptation & Integration
4. Wiring Harness Verification
5. Test Start & System Verification
6. Wiring Harness Cleanup
7. Engine Compartment Cleanup
8. Post-Install Evaluation
This video is at the first portion of step 5, the test start. This proves
that most of the system is working properly. The next part is to check for
computer codes and fix any problems that are found. In this case the O2
sensor is not yet connected causing a Check Engine Light (CEL) or Service
Engine Soon light (SES).
Yes the wiring is messy for now, but why clean it up until you know it
For an engine swap like this you need both engine and computer wiring
harnesses and connector diagrams for both computers and bulkhead/firewall

the time of the video being shot.

1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 5.0 Litre 4 speed - SOLD!
As you probably know, the 3rd generation of Firebirds took flight in 1982
with 3 models including the Trans Am which is the high performance Firebird
and was completely restyled, more aerodynamic and that year voted one of
the 12 "Best Cars in the World" and also won "Best Sports GT Category in
it's price range".
This 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is a great strong running car.
Equipped with a 5.0 Litre V-8 OHV, 4 speed, it has approximately 88K miles.
Although the paint is a little weak, the interior is very good, the body
is straight and it runs GREAT!
There are also T-Tops, the rear end has been replaced with a Camaro 5-speed posi-traction rear
end, the power steering pump was rebuilt, the radiator was replaced, the
window weather stripping on doors was replaced, there are new front tires,
the side shifting plate on transmission was repaired and inspected (Stock
Saginaw) and of course the hatchback (which has new cylinders), turbo wheel covers, dual mirrors, rear deck
spoiler, heavier suspension package that includes a "quicker" steering
ratio, and full instrumentation including speedometer, trip odometer,
tachometers, gauges for oil pressure, voltage, fuel level and coolant temp,
etc. With the seats laid down, there is also a lot of room for your gear.
Don't miss your opportunity to own this great runner!
This car is in the greater Portland, OR area and is shown by appointment.
Please call 503-855-4345 or 1-888-597-6719 for more information.
1978 Trans Am highway acceleration
1978 Trans Am 400 (180hp) accelerating from around 80 kph to somewhere
beyond 130kph after a kickdown to 2nd gear. Wide open throttle was fairly
brief, as the 400 is stronger at lower RPMs.
