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.





Cutting Fuel Pump Access Panel and Removing Fuel Pump Assembly - 86 Trans AM with 02 Gas Tank
Watch in HD! Been a little while since I had any videos to share! But now I have quite a few to edit and upload so stay tuned! This is some shots of me making my access panel for my fuel pump in my 86 Trans AM. The fuel tank is a 2002 plastic fuel tank. You'll notice with this combination, I dont need to cut the football field sized hole that you need to cut with the 82-92 and 93-98 metal tanks. Its a pretty small opening. I make sure I radius cut the corners to keep the stress points down. I will be making a nice cover to seal this up. I might put it in another video, but most likely Ill do it and comment on it in another video. Im not 100% thrilled with how the nibbler worked. I should have practiced with it a little to get a feel for how it was going to cut. But, it worked. Thanks for watching!
