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!

Almost Done - Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 10 357 V8 Street Demon Carb
This is Part 10 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We've been swapping in a carbed 357 small block in place of the original 305 TPI. Since the last video, we installed the distributor, plugs, and wires. We also plumbed in the temporary fuel setup with a Mallory 4309 Regulator. Then, I painted the factory valve covers and tightened up the belts. We only have a few more things to get done before we can fire this engine up for the first time. I hope you find the videos interesting...thanks for watching!





Jordan's Project Update - Trans Am and Honda SL350 Dirtbike.
We thought it was time for a little update on the current projects. We will be finishing up the Polaris Sleeper project first, then get back to the Honda and Trans Am. All the parts to put the Honda back together will be here this week. The Trans Am will take a bit longer. We will be pulling the Trans Am engine very soon though. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!





Trans Am Project Update and Road Test - 357 V8 Demon 4 BBL
Quite a few of you have been asking for an update on my son's 1987 Pontiac Trans Am, so we thought we better make a video. We've just been busy with other things recently, so we haven't done anything to major to it. As you can see though, Jordan has made a few changes and it's still running really well. Thanks for watching along with this project, we appreciate it!





Trans Am 357 V8 5,000 RPM First Time Test Drive - New Valve Covers Too
We recently changed the oil and filter for the second time on the engine. We're now running Mobil 1 Full Synthetic with a Lucas Oil Zinc Additive. It has gone over 500 miles since the engine was built. We still won't be doing any smoky burnouts or anything, until it gets some more miles on it. This was the first time that we've pushed it to 5,000 RPM's...and we only did that in 3rd gear. You can see that he never went over 4500 in first or second. We'll dial in the fuel pressure, timing, etc...a bit better before the next run. Thanks for watching! The background music track is Whiskey on the Mississippi by Kevin MacLeod.
