1979 Pontiac Trans Am 403 WS6
This is just a short walkaround of my 79 T/A, that I restored back in 1994.
The video was shoot in 2006.
She's mostly stock for now, but it does have headers and dual Exhaust.
The hood scoop has been opened up, the carb rejetted, and the dizzy has
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with an 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

1979 Pontiac Trans Am G-Tech Run
Showing how to use a G-tech meter for 1/4 mile run.
This run is my best run ever and my first time into the 13.8s my Trans Am
normally runs in the 13.9ish range but i believe the 45 degree cool air
helped make some extra horse power on this day.
Car has over 230,000 miles on it's 403 Olds motor and transmission but has
been modded with shift kit, cam, headers with full dual Exhaust, electric fan, aluminum intake, 3.42
rear gearing, Nitto street legal drag radials
1979 Firebird - Into the 8's!!!
Dad's fastest and very last run to date. The impatient driver behind my dad
did his burnout through the run, so you can't hear Dad's car at all. The
"racer" driving the Mustang
was at the 330' when Dad finished. (Ihave the time slip to prove it!)
My 1979 Trans Am first time on the road in nearly 10 years
403 olds motor, big block chevy performance valve springs, headers w/purple
hornie bolt on mufflers, basically straight pipe, and a big cam. Lift:
Intake 475 Exhaust 500, Duration
215/225, and 1971 Olds 350 closed chamber heads machined and port and
polished, Edelbrock intake
1979 Trans Am Test Speedo Shot
A 120+ mph run in our 1979 Trans Am with a 403 Olds Motor! Motor has been
bored out .60 over with 9:1 compression pistons. Heads were ported,
Edelbrock aluminum Manifold, Cam and carb kit, Roller Rockers and timing
chain, Black Jack Headers and 2.5" cross over duel Exhaust. Had the Trans rebuilt with a B&M Shift
kit which got rid of the 2 second lag between 1st and 2nd gear to give a
nice chirp and a 3000 RPM stall torque converter. The rear limited slip
was rebuilt with 3.90:1 gear ratio done at my local speed shop with
matching speedo gears and got rid of the original 2.41's it had . I was
told not to waste my money on this motor by all my gear head friends, but
I got the last laugh when it produced 395hp 433 fp of torque to the rear
wheels on the Dyno. I
got no respect when I bought this car back in 1985, but by 1991 it had beat
everyone of them at New England Dragway with high 11's in the 1/4 mile on
295 60's street tires. This engine was blueprinted by Pro Steet Unlimited
in East Hartford Ct back in 1991. I have made a few more additions since
then which should put it over 400hp (I hope), but I haven't brought it back
to the Dyno to verify
that. There are no power adders on this either. I'm not looking for
comments on this. I simply wanted to make a point that not every gear head
knows as much as they think they do and it's easy to criticize when you
don't have the knowlege or the facts. I look forward to meeting every one
of them at a red light someday.
1979 Pontiac Trans Am Review 7-22-2008
TestDriveMyRide.com is an idea for car reviews of real cars by real people.
This test video is a review of my 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. This
restored vehicle features a 300 horsepower Chevy 350 V8,
700r4 overdrive transmission, 3.42 rear gears, flowmaster Exhaust, and subframe connectors. Original
black on black t-top vehicle with fresh paint and interior. The original
Oldsmobile 403 only had 180 horsepower, but these cars
can return to the muscle car era with only a few tweaks/mods.
1979 Pontiac Trans Am - TA 1/4 mile G-Tech runs and having some fun
This is my 79 TA - it has 230,000 mile on the original 403 Olds motor and
its turbo 350 trans. I've added
performance parts to both the engine and trans but the heads have never
been off the block and trans has never been rebuilt. It does have edelbrock
performer cam and intake, Dynomax headers, dual Exhaust, shift kit in the trans, 3.42:1 rear
gear, welded sub-frame connections, and an electric black-max fan. Plus
