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!

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!
