It's Alive !!! Trans Am Engine Swap Part 12 - 357 V8 Street Demon Carb 1987 Pontiac TA

The Trans Am is finally running again. The engine is sounding really nice. Just have a few more things to button up before we can take a little test drive. The main thing holding us back at the moment is the Throttle Valve Cable for the trans. I need to get it properly set up before we can drive it. It feels good just to hear it run well though. Thanks for watching along, we appreciate it. There will still be many more videos to come in this engine swap series, as well as more vids on restoring/modifying the Trans Am in other ways.

This is part 8 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We have been swapping in a carbed 357 V8 in place of the original 305 TPI. Since the last video, we have installed the headers and hooked up the Exhaust. We also put in the radiator and the electric fans. Next up, we'll start on all the engine accessories. We are all finished under the car and it's ready to be rolled off the ramps. I hope you find this series interesting...thanks for watching!

New Engine Installed - Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 7 - 357 V8 Street Demon Carb
This is part 7 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We are in the process of switching from a 305 TPI to a 357 Carbed engine. Since the last video, we have managed to get the new engine dropped into the car. It's fully mounted to the trans and we even installed the carb. We're running the new 625 cfm Street Demon carb on it, because we preferred some of it's design features. By the next video, we should have the headers and Exhaust installed and maybe have the fuel system set up.

Trans Am Project Update and Road Test - 357 V8 Demon 4 BBL
Quite a few of you have been asking for an update on my son's 1987 Pontiac Trans Am, so we thought we better make a video. We've just been busy with other things recently, so we haven't done anything to major to it. As you can see though, Jordan has made a few changes and it's still running really well. Thanks for watching along with this project, we appreciate it!
