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!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to electric piano. 011

1958 Chevrolet Apache Pickup
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1958 Chevrolet Apache
Pickup. The starting point for this Chevy is the 3200 Series pickup truck,
which sports a long wheel base to go with its fleetside long bed and has
been panted an eye catching yellow. This isn't a run of the mill Chevy
however - the drivetrain has been upgraded to a 350 CID V8 engine with a turbo 350 Automatic transmission. The
upgrades don't end there, there's a straight front axle from a 59 3/4 ton
Chevy in the front with power disc brakes for stopping power. New items
include a new master cylinder, brakes, tires, wheels, aluminum radiator,
transmission cooler, and a new power steering setup. Other options include
AM/FM/CD radio, power steering, power brakes, aluminum alloy wheels, radial
tires, and a vinyl interior. Thanks for taking a look!

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

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 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!
Trans Am Engine Swap Part 5 - 357 V8
This is the fifth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. In

we can prepare it for paint. I ordered our new carburetor as well and it
should be here in a couple days. I hope you are finding these vids
interesting...thanks for watching!
1987 PONTIAC TRANS AM GTA -- A VERY SPECIAL TRANS AM
Presented here is a rare and unique edition of a Trans Am. The Trans Am
GTA. The Firebird body remained basically unchanged. All center,
high-mounted stop lamps were relocated to a new position between the
spoiler and the rear deck lid, and the large Firebird hood emblem
disappeared forever. All V8's now received factory roller camshafts, and
faced with consumer demands for more power, GM officially released the new
5.7L with tuned port fuel injection. Available only with an automatic
transmission, it produced 210 hp and takes the top performance seat from
the 5.0L L69 production is stopped, leaving the LG4 as the only remaining
carbureted V8 used in the F-body. Trans Am GTA, Gran Turismo Americano, was
introduced, available with the LB9 305 TPI engine, which was returned to
215 hp., or the L98 350 TPI. Gold 16-inch, flat-mesh, diamond-spoke wheels
were standard on GTA, with 16-inch, 20-slot wheels standard on Trans Am.
The Trans Am GTA was Pontiac's pride and joy with a standard 5.7L 350 Tuned
Port Injection (TPI). Many people like to say, incorrectly, that the engine
itself was pulled directly out of the C4 Corvette, which itself began using
the engine in 1985, but the heads on the Corvette were aluminum whereas the
Firebird heads were cast Iron. The GTA came with a standard TH-700R4
automatic transmission, A/C, new seats with inflatable lumbar and side
bolsters, special door panels, epoxy-filled emblems, body-colored ground
effects, a special GTA horn button, and the legendary WS6 performance
handling package. All of these options were packaged into the Trans Am
under the RPO code Y84, and the model was produced until the end of Third
Generation F-body production in 1992. Every thing about this GTA is
spectacular. The paint color, the muscle engine that's "clean as a
whistle", the sporty interior, T-Tops, gold colored wheels, and hatch
revealing plenty of storage. This GTA cost around $14,104 new, has a 101
inches wheelbase and weighs 3,435 lbs. U.S. production of GTA's is 9,481
and Canadian figures show 1,509 units. Thanks very much for viewing this
rare and very special 1987 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.
