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!
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

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.
1987 Firebird Formula 350 in showroom condition
In 1987 there were a total of 88,613 Firebirds built by Pontiac. Of those,
13,164 were Formulas, so less than 15% of total production. Only a very
small percentage of Formulas had the 5.7 liter L98 350 engine and 700R4
automatic transmission, which is the same power drive train as the 1987
Corvette. Factory rated at 230 horsepower and 330 ft/lbs of
This car has brought back to look just like it did when it rolled off the
assembly line for delivery to a new car dealership. Not many of these 23+
year old cars are still on the road, and this is the first year of the 3rd
generation Formula with the top engine option, so it's pretty unique.
Still verifying the official production numbers Firebird 350 models from
the Pontiac Historical Society. I ordered the original invoice and window
sticker, which shows a "retail" price of $16,137.00.
Thanks for looking!
1987 Trans Am 355ci TPI first drive...
This is a short vid of my 87 Trans Am after I finally got the engine
running right. Before it would not idle but I figured out I had the valve
spring rocker arms tightened too tight. It is a 355ci small block chevy
with crappy truck heads along with a LT1 cam and a Tuned Port Injection
intake manifold. Exhaust is
Flowmaster, but I do not know what series. When the car is near the
phone/camera, you can hear the loud hissing coming from the engine sucking
in all that air! This is the first drive since I removed the 305 so I am
still getting used to the pedal with power! The smoke is from the
injectors running a bit rich since I had the fuel pressure turned up a bit
high. This is also a good vid to see my sequential tailights!
