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

removed, driveshaft taken out, crossmember removed, tranny jacked and
prepped. This is the end product of the heart transplant. A 454/th400 will

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
it to my brother a few years after we got married. During the summer of
2008, I reacquired the car and secretly brought it back to its original
Engine Rebuild class (the engine WORKS!!)
Our nasty Chevy 350 runs.
Motor: Chevy 350, 4 bolt main, .30 over,
Left head: 350 head, Right head: Chevy 305.
History: Came from a local junk yard, all bearing were fried, rings shot.
Oil vally was painted a pretty gold (old racer trick to make the oil flow
better : Didn't work)
Last owner just frankenstein it together.
Goal: needed to fire-up and runs for a few secs.

91 Chevy Camaro motor swap progress
This video is to show the progress of my Camaro. It started out as a bone
stock RS Camaro with a
3.1L V6, no power options or anything. i got my hands on two z28 parts
cars. and i decided to make my car a little better. I pretty much converted
my car to a Z-28. I like to call it the RS-Z. the motor from the parts car
was a LG4 carbed 305. now its a TPI 305 with a bigger cam. it has the Speed
density computer, shorty headers, 3inch flowmaster Exhaust. Z28 suspension, 3.08 Posi rear end,
255lph walbro fuel pump. i also completly changed the interior from red to
black, there is many more mods i have done to this car. I am a 18 year kid
who pretty much did this entire project myself, i have had the car for 3
years now. after doing the swap i recieved 2 awards from car shows, and i
showed it to scott settlemire and he was very impressed (he was at the XXX
car show and i was there too). if you want to know more about the car or
have question feel free to ask

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.

LSA Powered 1969 Camaro "Lou's Change" Engine Install Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - In this chapter of the Lou's Change 1969 Camaro build, the V8 Speed and
Resto shop crew is installing the LSA Engine into the Detroit Speed
subframe, and then the subframe to the car. The challenges included
making sure the ZL-1 Supercharger hat
would fit under the stock hood, and then how to fit the air conditioning
compressor on the engine, as the DSE subframe requires a high-mount
compressor. The LSA does not. The Detroit speed headers left plenty of
room,but our crew needed to fabricate some brackets and notch the subframe.
We also installed a Jones Racing Products steering reservoir for a dual
power steering return line set up as needed by the Hydratech hydraulic
brake Booster. A Holley LS engine
swap oil pan is being used for better ground clearance.
