77 Plantinum Bandit @ The Dyno!
Here is a quick upload of the Dyno session we did with the
Platinum Bandit just after the TA Nats this year.
The Platinum Bandit, is an original 77 SE 4spd TA, that we converted over
to a lot of modern technology to make it a fun road ready car with a lot of
power. The 474 stroked engine we recently built for it with the help of
Butler Performance, will be featured in the next issue of High Performance
Pontiac Magazine. Pushing 585HP off of 89 Ethanol fuel, with plenty of
vacuum and drive-ability, really makes this car come alive! I will be
posting a video of all the updated components and their manufacturers soon.

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!
