132636 / 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo Pace Car
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cxmoqkm
As one of only 5,700 cars built to commemorate the first time one car paced
both the Indy 500 and Daytona 500 in the same year, this 1980 Trans Am turbo Pace Car is one of the most exclusive
Trans Ams ever built.
Owned by one very meticulous owner and garage kept for its entire
existence, this pristine California Pontiac is one of the cleanest second
generation Trans Ams we've ever offered. Thanks to three decades of
exceptional maintenance and a little cosmetic T.L.C. from RK Motors
Charlotte's first rate restoration shop, the car presents as well today as
it did it when it rolled off the showroom floor over 30 years ago. A bright
and crisp coat of correct GM code 11 Cameo White covers 100% original body
panels which are straight, rock solid and free of waves and major
imperfections. Because this Trans Am has never been fully disassembled, it
still displays completely accurate panel gaps that are surprisingly tight
and provide the car with great panel fitment and correct factory alignment.
On top of the ghost white panels, a fresh set of tri-color outlining
stripes perfectly complements a five color 'turbo bird' hood decal and factory applied
Indianapolis 500 Pace Car door stickers to complete the look.
Under this Trans Ams "turbo" stamped
hood you'll find an all original Pontiac code YL turbocharged 301 V8 that made substantially more
twist than the mighty 6.6 liter it replaced while being significantly more
efficient. Originally conceived as an economy offering, the Pontiac 301 was
beefed up with a slew of upgrades in preparation for a Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once the turbo was installed, it created a waste limited 9
PSI of Boost and helped the reborn
301 achieve 236 horsepower and a serious 345
lb./ft. of torque. Riding below a factory installed heat shield that
prevents the paint on the car's hood from bubbling, that Garrett blower is
fed by a high pressure fuel pump, cooled by a high pressure oil pump and
breathes through turbo specific Exhaust manifolds. Below the turbo, a YL 301 specific Rochester Quadrajet M4ME
800 CFM carburetor sits in front of an original HEI distributor which sends
power to the cylinders through blue Belden Edge plug wires. All the hard
parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and turbo mandated C51 air conditioning are factory
original pieces, and all the belts and hoses appear to be in good working
Behind the motor, the cars original tough and proven turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic
transmission sends power to the cars original 3.08 Posi-traction rear end,
and a standard WS6 handling package. For 1980, the WS6 package included
larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering gear box
and newly designed power front and rear disc brakes that, when combined
with the cars standard power steering, made for serious handling ability
and greatly reduced stopping distances. Power flows to the pavement through
pliable 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials that are mounted to
exclusive 15 inch 'turbo' style aluminum
The cars all original fully equipped Oyster interior features optional
doeskin vinyl with hobnail cloth inserts which creates a sophisticated
appearance. The firm and comfortable seats are nicely patterned pieces that
feel every bit as comfortable as they look, and the original brown carpet
shows very little wear. Between the seats, a clean gray console houses
chrome switches for the cars power windows behind an engine turned shift
plate, and above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight
around the cars mirrored tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking
engine turned dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and
air conditioning and the cars exclusive Delco-GM seek/scan stereo cassette
player. At the sides of the seats, excellent Oyster door panels that
feature bright 'turbo bird' embroidery
are detailed in pristine stainless trim and chrome door handles and door
lock buttons. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct aluminum
steering wheel that features a gray rim and sits on an optional tilt
With its clean turbocharged motor,
fantastic interior and rare low mileage, this has to be one of the nicest
Trans Am turbo Pace Cars available
1984 El Camino Single Ebay Turbo 327 first start and drive 1080p hi-def
A friend of mine just got his single turbo El Camino project running and he is about to
become addicted to turbos. Engine is a
327 with Sportmans II iron heads, one piece Holley 600 blow-thru. He used
ebay turbo headers and a late model full
size chevy truck Y pipe to make a great looking setup. It's not dialed in
yet and way too rich, but it still ran strong for the first run. Lots of
Ebay parts here and he has under $1000 in the whole turbo project.
1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo Review
Here is something I recorded a while back, and just now I got to editing
it, silly me. Anyways, this is the full review of our 1980 Pontiac Trans Am
turbo. Interior, exterior, Exhaust, start up, revs, etc.
1968 Pontiac Firebird vs 2010 Lingenfelter Trans Am - Generation Gap: Firebirds
Cast your vote here:
In this episode of Generation Gap the guys compare Firebirds: old vs. new.
Davin brought a classic 1968 Pontiac Firebird equipped with a 350-CID V-8
boasting 320 hp. Matt, on the other hand, had a bit of a trick up his
sleeve bringing a 2010 Lingenfelter Performance Engineering Trans Am
modified to the nines to look and perform like a modern Firebird. Its 455
CID and 655 hp are some impressive numbers, but how will it be on the road?

1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo
I thought you'd like a look at this very original 1980 Pontiac Trans Am turbo. It's powered by the turbocharged 301 V8, backed by a 3spd automatic
trans. It really looks great in black with gold accents. The interior
appears to be all original and it's still in fantastic condition. I hope
you find it interesting, thanks for watching!
