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!

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!
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.

The 30 Minute Street Demon Carburetor Install Challenge Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Demon Carburetors recently released an advertisement suggesting you can install a new Street Demon carburetor and have your car running properly within 30 minutes. We decided to take that challenge, and installed a Street Demon onto V8TV fabricator John Moss's 1972 Chevy Nova. The car is powered by a 383 stroker and was suffering from temperamental carburetor issues. The Street Demon is an all new design that features several innovations including a leakproof main body, 625 CFM airflow rating, small primaries with a large goggle valve vacuum secondary, and minimal adjustment requirements. Watch the video to see if John was able to not only install the Street Demon in the 30 minute window, but to see what a difference this carburetor made on his Nova!
357 V8 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Update
We thought it was time for an update on my son's 1987 Pontiac Trans Am. Yesterday, we brought home a nice 357 Chevy small block that is going to take the place of the original 305 TPI. It should offer a substantial bump in power, thanks to 52 more cubic inches, and a cam with a bit more lift. We're also going to switch over to a carb just for the sake of simplicity. We'll probably go back to fuel injection when we do an LS swap in the future. We'll have many more videos on this project in the near future. Thanks for watching!
134150 / 1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cfpbuo2
If you're a Trans Am enthusiast who's searching for that elusive F2 that you can literally purchase and drive straight to the show, we've got the car for you!
Assembled at GM's famous Norwood manufacturing facility in May of 1970, this awesome blue bird was shipped across the country to A&G Motor Sales in Tell City, Indiana where it began a 43 year existence filled with immaculate maintenance and impeccable care. Today, wearing solid, rust-free body panels, it displays a nice looking coat of GM code 26 Lucerne Blue paint on top of smooth and solid surfaces that we're recently re-visited in a high quality, frame-off restoration. And that cool blue paint is complemented by a correct set of "TRANS AM" call-outs that, along with a centered roof stripe and an aggressive 'Screaming Chicken' hood decal, create some of the most iconic and desirable muscle car war paint in automotive history.
Take a look under this Tin Indian's glossy blue hood and you'll find a 400 cubic inch, L74 Ram Air III V8 that, thanks to the car's fresh restoration, is a trophy worthy showpiece. Back in the early 70s, government-mandated emissions standards ensured the muscle car era was coming to an abrupt end. And many of the models that virtually owned the streets not even five years earlier were, unfortunately, in their final days of production. Luckily, the gearheads at Pontiac kept the faith and continued to offer multiple performance options which still created the kind of torque-rich power that muscle car buyers had come to crave. At 400 cubic inches, this WS block was already one of the largest engines you could buy in 1970; and by utilizing a unique distributor and application-specific heads, it managed to meet ever increasing emissions standards while still turning out a solid 345 horsepower and a stump pulling 430 lb./ft. of torque!
Behind that monster motor, a rugged Muncie M20 4-speed sends power to a beefy 12 bolt rear end that does a great job on either the back roads or the interstate. Below that stellar powertrain, a rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes factory power steering, thicker sway bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling. And that roster of road ready hardware rolls on a fresh set of Pontiac Rally II wheels which spin F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around pristine PMD center caps.
Open this Pontiac's mile-wide doors and you'll find a fully restored GM code 201 interior that blends seamlessly with the car's bright blue paint! Low back bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every bit as nice and rich as our pictures imply. Between those seats, a molded blue console props an enclosed storage bin behind a chrome Hurst shifter and a factory 8-track player. And in front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned dash props crystal clear gauges and a correct Delco radio behind a black tilt column and a black Formula steering wheel.
This highly desirable Trans Am is a pristine example of Pontiac's contribution to Detroit's first golden age of performance. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information!
