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!

This is the fourth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. This is my son's first project car and we're having a lot of fun with it. In this video, you get to see how we removed the old 305 TPI engine. In the days ahead, we'll be cleaning up the engine bay and getting rid of any unnecessary wiring or equipment. Then we'll be ready to drop in the new 357 small block V8. I hope you find our project interesting...thanks for watching!

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!
New Engine Installed - Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 7 - 357 V8 Street Demon Carb
This is part 7 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We are in the process of switching from a 305 TPI to a 357 Carbed engine. Since the last video, we have managed to get the new engine dropped into the car. It's fully mounted to the trans and we even installed the carb. We're running the new 625 cfm Street Demon carb on it, because we preferred some of it's design features. By the next video, we should have the headers and Exhaust installed and maybe have the fuel system set up. I hope you find these vids interesting....thanks for watching!

Why spend hundreds of dollars on car repairs? Replacing a car's radiator is not that hard to do. Tool Dude Tony shows you step by step how to replace a radiator and how to make support brackets for an electric cooling fan. This repair was done on a Suzuki, but the process is the same for most cars.

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.

305 Chevy running on engine stand - test run - pt3
Finally got the comp extreme 4x4 cam put in. Also put in gear drive. The gear drive was a cheap pro comp unit, I checked it againest the stock set and 2 double rollers and the timing mark were off. They had the number 1 piston already headed down the tube and the cam still retarded about a degree. And that was with the 5 degree advanced key. It was almost zero, so I ran it. Did not like whatso ever. Seem to have real bad harmonics, just ran real bad. So I put the new double roller on and rolled with it. Plus I added a 650 double pumper, in place of the 600 vac secondary. And added two spacers. Plus I did a re-curve kit on the distributor. So all in all, Stock 305 2 brl maxed out at 5950 rpm went to a 650 Double Pumper Comp Cam Double hump heads, double roller timing chain and now maxes out at 6950 rpm. Dont know anything else to do with it but sell it. All comments welcome.
Trans Am 357 V8 First Test Drive Video After Engine Swap
This our first video of the Trans Am in action after the engine swap. Obviously, the videos will be more interesting after we break the engine in a bit more. Right now, we are still adjusting and tuning things. After the engine has sufficient time to break in, we'll show you what it can really do. Thanks for watching!

Great style, great condition! The white top gives the illusion of a convertible..and the patterned upholstery gives a feeling of richness. The 390 c.i. V8 and Cruiseomatic would mean this car was no slouch in the performance department!
