Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 8 - Headers Installed - Radiator and Electric Fans

This is part 8 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We have been swapping in a carbed 357 V8 in place of the original 305 TPI. Since the last video, we have installed the headers and hooked up the Exhaust. We also put in the radiator and the electric fans. Next up, we'll start on all the engine accessories. We are all finished under the car and it's ready to be rolled off the ramps. I hope you find this series interesting...thanks for watching!

Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 9 - 357 V8 - Alternator Power Steering Water Pump
We're getting closer now, only a few more things before she'll run. We managed to install the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, heater hoses, and radiator hoses. Now, we basically have to put in the HEI distributor, plugs, and some fuel lines...then we'll be ready to fire it up. There will probably be a couple more vids before we actually start it for the first time. Thanks for watching along, we appreciate it!





1977 Bandit Trans Am Flowmaster
1977 Trans Am Special Edition, TA 6.6, 4 speed. After battling numerous header problems including reoccurring Exhaust leaks and mufflers bottoming out (scraping pavement) I went back to a crossflow muffler. I installed a Flowmaster 80 series muffler and I am happy with the results. It's not a true dual Exhaust but it works for me!
