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!
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.
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 - First Start up, Cam Break In, and Wicked Idle
It'll be a little while before we can really see what it's got, but it sure
sounds mean. The cam break-in sure was nerve racking. We're sure glad to
have that part over with and hopefully things go smoothly from here on out.
We still have a lot of tuning to do on the car, but I know a bunch of you
were waiting to hear it run. The idle on that Howards cam definitely
sounds plenty healthy. From the little bit of accelerating we did from
2500 RPM to 4200 RPM, it feels like it's going to be a strong runner.
We're going to take it easy for a bit though and break it in well. Thanks
for watching, we'll have more updates coming soon!
Trans Am Project Update - Engine Going Back in After Cam Swap
Jordan and I put in quite a few hours on the Trans Am today. We managed to
get the engine oil primed, the distributor stabbed in, and the engine
installed most of the way. We still need to pick up some new header
gaskets, spark plugs, and some more antifreeze. We hope to have the car
running sometime tomorrow. We'll have video of the initial start up and
cam break in. If all goes well, we'll take it for a spin down the road.
Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

LQ4 Install - Thirdgen F-Body - Motor install from the bottom
Watch in HD!!
The time is FINALLY here! I got most of a day to put the motor and trans
back into my car! This video is mostly time lapsed. It took me about an
hour total. Mostly because of fiddling with the camera, and having the
dolly wheels sink into the driveway. Took me some time to get it moving
This method works great for me. Mainly because trying to snake a motor and
trans over the front of that car is a pain. I have zero desire to remove
that hood and try to line it back up again. And installing/tightening
those engine mount bolts while its in the car is a real pain too. This way
always works good for me, and as you can see, is totally doable by myself.
I could have used a second set of hands though just to help shove things
around and line things up.
I had some technical difficulties with my camera, and there is some lost
footage of me talking through a few steps, but its no real loss.
Enjoy! If you have any questions or comments please feel free!
