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!
