Trans Am Project Update - 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Third Gen
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
Many of you have been asking for an update on our Trans Am project, so we
thought we better get one done. We weren't really prepared to do it, so
the car isn't as clean as it should be. We have a lot of changes planned
for the Trans Am and we'll do our best to keep you posted about the
progress. Thought I'd go ahead and throw in a flyby and some burnout
footage, just to make it a little more interesting. Thanks for watching!
3rd Gen Firebird Formula (WS6/G92) 383 Stroker - 5.0 Tuned Port 5-speed
This WS6/G92 Firebird Formula has spent 99% of it's entire life as a race
car... originally I shot this car back in 2006, the year it won the Camaro-Mustang Challenge (CMC) series
championship with it's stock 213hp-(at rear wheels) 5.0 Tuned Port
Injection... then I managed to catch up with the present owner a few years
later to find out it's now sporting a 383 Stroker and running in the
American Iron series. I must say that as cool as a big-cube 383 Stroker is,
I am a bit sad to see the original 5.0-liter TPI platform replaced. With
the original NASA-CMC class horsepower limit of 230rwhp
recently being raised, we are seeing these old 3rd Gen 5.0-liter Tuned Port
cars disappearing from CMC competition...
...anyway, I just love these cars, and personally am absolutely drawn to
these era cars, as the first late-model F-body that I owned was a 1987
Formula Firebird way back in 1992, lol... so these Formula models are
extremely close to my heart... as all '80s Tuned Port Injected Camaro IROC-Z and 5.0 Mustang (Foxbody) models are as

1986 third gen Trans Am turbocharged 5.3 LM7 LSx runs
Couple WOT runs in my 1986 trans. Setup is a 2005 5.3 stock bottom end,
317 heads, LS6 cam and valvesprings, LS6 intake manifold, and custom fabbed
turbo setup with a turbonetics 76mm ball bearing turebo. Currently
running 5 PSI but engine will take 12-14 PSI. Car has a T56 tranny with a
textralia clutch as well.
3rd Gen Camaro - Fox-Body Mustang (the good, bad and the ugly)
Most car guys don't know the difference between the 230hp G92 optioned
models, or the 5-speed and automatic models, or the 170hp lackluster TBI
versions (not to be confused with TPI versions)... Mustang guys smoke the 170hp TBI
models, as well as the "run of the mill" TPI automatic models, and believe
they can do this to any and all. Well, not all 3rd Gen F-bodies are created
equal. Optioned from the factory with the 230hp TPI (not TBI) engine,
manual 5-speed tranny and 3.42 gears, these 3rd Gen F-body sleepers gave
5.0 Mustangs absolute hell.
In 1990 the G92 option code became a full performance package rather than
simply a rear axle option as in previous model years... GM also offered an
answer to the Saleen Mustangs by way of option 1LE, which
consisted of the G92 optioned without A/C and other creature comforts, and
the addition of Corvette brakes and other road racing equipment.
About the only way an IROC-Z Camaro could take out a 5.0L Mustang from this era was with
the Tuned Port Induction and addition of these performance options: G92,
1LE, L98 or B4C.
The TBI powered Camaro
were not at all in the same league as the performance version TPI Camaro, or 5.0 Mustang, these 170hp TBI models were
GM's economy de-tuned versions and were around 50-60 less horsepower versus the
performance optioned TPI models. These non-performing models gave the 3rd
Gen F-bodies a bad rep on the street... many think that these were the
example of 3rd Gen F-bodies, when in fact, and unlike Ford, GM offered many
models, with many engines, camshafts and rear-gear ratios...

5.0 Tuned Port Terrors (3rd Gen Camaro-Firebird)
http://www.StreetShowDriftDrags.com ... 5.0 Liter (305ci) Tuned Port (TPI)
little "torque monsters"... The 1985-92 version 5.0-liter 305ci TPI
F-bodies had many options from the factory that ranged from mild 200hp on
up to the performance 230hp G92 optioned models with 5-speed manual. This
particular black-bird Formula V8 is limited to running a stock 305/5-spd
setup and puts down 213hp at the rear wheels and won the Mid Atlantic Camaro-Mustang Challenge series championship
in 2006 while going up against many other Camaro-Firebird and Mustang models that were putting out
closer to the 230hp (rear wheel) limit for this series (CMC 1)

HAWKS Storm Trooper LS7 w/ Magnuson 2300 TVS 717hp & 718hp
HAWKS Storm Trooper LS7 w/ Magnuson 2300 717hp & 718hp, this is the Formula
that was featured in the February 2011 GM High Tech Magazine. This car
features a 427ci dry sump LS7 engine with a Tremec T56 transmission and a
Magnuson 2300 TVS Blower. This car is an absolute rocket and it sounds
amazing with the cog drive!!! It makes 717rwhp and 718 rwtq, it also
features a custom hood with a ZR1 clear window to show off the blower.
Best 5.0 Mustang heads... (Trick Flow???)
What is the best head, straight out of the box, for a standard bore and
stroke 5.0 liter 302 with a well matched cam and long tuned-style intake
(GT40/Cobra, etc...???) We are not talking about stroker motors or highly
modded engines... just a stock bottom end 5.0 with bolt-ons. Everyone has
their personal opinions... The over $1,000 TFS (Trock Flow), AFR (Air Flow
Research), Edelbrock, Ford Racing GT40X, etc... or the budget heads like
Flo-Tek 5.0X, Patriot, or worked over Iron versions like CNC E7 Power
Heads, ported GT40 or GT40P heads, etc... What do you guys think? Let the
head debates begin, lol.

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 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.

My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I've been looking for a car for my son for a while now. He wanted
something that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a
third generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to
be a bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore
and modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car
is a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner
already added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor
and coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks,
subframe connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a
great base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for
Sneak peak at a one off custom Trans-Am and GTO Concept /Camaro Morph
