Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 4 - Removing the Engine - 305 TPI to 357 Carbed
This is the fourth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series.
This is my son's first project car and we're having a lot of fun with it.
In this video, you get to see how we removed the old 305 TPI engine. In
the days ahead, we'll be cleaning up the engine bay and getting rid of any
unnecessary wiring or equipment. Then we'll be ready to drop in the new
357 small block V8. I hope you find our project interesting...thanks for
1986 Chevy 305 V8 PARTIAL ENGINE OVERHAUL
***I realize I didn't need to torque the timing cover bolts down, I just
did it for the vid, also the start up at the end of the vid was NOT the
first start up.*** This is a 1986 Chevy C10. We only did a partial
overhaul, just a new cam, lifters, water pump, timing chain, gears, a new
gas tank and different 4-barrel carb was also installed, and just some
other smaller parts. Thanks for watching and please subscribe
1985 Camaro Start to Finish
This video chronicles the transformation to my wife's first car, a 1985 Camaro. She bought the
car in 1995 and when we first met she was driving it. We decided to sell

3rd Gen Camaro Build
A (lotta) work in progress. I started this project to swap a 191cubic inch
V6 to a 350 V8 (along with performance parts, and swapping & upgrading the
transmission) in 2009. (see modifications list below.) These are pictures
and videos as I progressed and the very first engine start and test drive.
I applied primer to protect the metal as I knew I would have to put the
project on hold, which is where it has been since. Plan to start again by
gutting & redoing the interior here in 2012.
