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! http://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundonYouTube http://ramblinaroundonyoutube.wordpress.com/ https://twitter.com/#!/RamblinAround The background music track is Whiskey on the Mississippi by Kevin MacLeod.

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!

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!

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. Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA 1987-1992 Nose Emblem





Monte Carlo SS 305 H.O. engine install part 4 - it's done!
Finally got the engine finished up and running. All I have left is to replace the fuel tank and it should be a driver. Had some problems getting it to run with fuel pump sourced fuel. Ended up having to take the top of the Q-jet carb and loosening up the float (it sat unused for 14 years!). Now all is well.

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.
