Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 11 - Fuel Pump Choke and Fans

This should be the last video before we start the car. Today, or plan is to fire it up for the first time. For those who haven't been following along...my son and I are swapping in a carbed 357 in place of the original TPI 305. It has been a fun project so far, with only a couple minor issues to this point. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

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.





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!





This Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Has Been Transformed
“I always wanted a V8, manual, rear-drive—and then there was Smokey and the Bandit,” says Gregg Hamilton, “When I moved here to America, [I realized] this is the only place in the world where I can really own one.” Wanting something that’s American, New Zealander Hamilton settled on this Pontiac Trans Am—that is definitely not like any other. Using tricks learned from years of working with some of the best World Rally Championship teams in the world—including Toyota Team Europe and Prodrive—Hamilton’s Firebird has been given handling to match its extensive engine modifications. “I needed something to do, so we found this car on eBay, and flew to Alabama, picked it up at the airport sight unseen…[and] it sort of just evolved into what it is today.” From its wider bodywork, to custom engine computer, to fully revised suspension and brakes, it’s “about as quick as a Z06 Corvette,” he says. Sound far-fetched? As someone whose day job is spent building and testing Ken Block’s latest projects, we’d believe him. “I like the mechanical-ness of it. I like the engine bay…I like that you can see the injectors, and plug for ECU…There’s no wheel arches in there, so you can see the uprights and the roll bar,” says Hamilton. “It’s not always about the drive for me. It’s about the build of it. It’s about tinkering with it…” Drive Tastefully® http://Petrolicious.com http://facebook.com/Petrolicious
