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!





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.





1990 Chevy 454 SS Pickup
I thought you'd like a look at this very sharp 1990 Chevrolet 454 SS pickup. These trucks were real hot back in the early 90's, mostly because they were wicked tire burners. While that 454 didn't make tons of horsepower, it did make plenty of torque to melt off a set of tires. This one is a nice straight example that really hasn't been messed with. Other than the 17" aftermarket rims, it looks entirely stock. All it really could use is a good wash and detail. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011 ISRC: US-UAN-11-00709 Bouncy, Grooving 2010





Trans Am Road Test - Third Gen Burnout and High Speed Touring
Jordan decided to take the Trans Am out for a little road test today. He is still trying to keep the RPM's to a reasonable level and not spin it too hard yet. He has put quite a few break-in miles on it so far though, and it seems to be doing well. We hope you find this interesting, we'll have many more to come. Thanks for watching!
