Quick Burnout 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
We had our 1987 Trans Am project car out for a little test drive and we decided to lay down a little rubber. It's just a quick one, because I wasn't really wanting to waste too much rubber. Hopefully you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
1987 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 restored to stock condition
A quick video of my 1987 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350. Of over 88,000 Firebirds produced in '87 only 2,389 Formula 350 models were made. (2.7% of total production models)
Most people opted for the Trans-Am model if acquiring the L98 350 engine, so the Formula 350 is the most rare Firebird model from 1987 as most Formulas were optioned with the 305 engine.
I have all Pontiac Historical Society (PRS) documentation including copies of the original invoice and window sticker.

Trans Am GTA 87 Burrnig rubber. Just having a little fun before i painted her.
1987 Trans Am First Start Up
This is my 87 Trans Am. It came with the boatanchor 305 v8 but I acquired a 350. The 350 is bored .030 over and has forged pistons. The heads are stock LO5 truck heads but I have a LT1 cam in it. All the TPI hardware is from the 305 including the injectors AND computer. I put a thick washer in the fuel pressure regulator to increase the fuel pressure to supply more fuel for the 355. This is the first start up. Timing and tunning haven't been dialed in yet. Open headers for now baby!
1989 GTA Trans Am 2nd Dyno Run
The gent behind the wheel is Brian Wall (owner Operater of Wall's Rod and Custom) He comes highly recommended around here. The guy by the monitor is my buddy Ken and I'm behind the camera.
This is run #2, we incresed the fuel pressure a little bit because run #1 felt lean.
