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!

Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 9 - 357 V8 - Alternator Power Steering Water Pump
We're getting closer now, only a few more things before she'll run. We
managed to install the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, heater
hoses, and radiator hoses. Now, we basically have to put in the HEI
distributor, plugs, and some fuel lines...then we'll be ready to fire it
up. There will probably be a couple more vids before we actually start it
for the first time. Thanks for watching along, we appreciate it!

The 30 Minute Street Demon Carburetor Install Challenge Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - 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!

Pontiac Trans Am Burnouts - Lopey Cammed V8
The weather was great, so Jordan decided to take the Trans Am for a little
spin...and a couple burnouts. He's about to buy some new tires, so he
wasn't too worried about laying down some rubber. He also made a cardboard
stencil and sprayed the Goodyear lettering on his tires, just to see what
it would look like. He figured it was a good time to try it, since he'll
be done with these tires soon. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for

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.

Trans Am Project Update - Engine Going Back in After Cam Swap
Jordan 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!
Extreme Elco Engine Swap! - Roadkill Episode 4
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan and a carsick
dog drive a '69 El Camino 500 miles from home (on seven cylinders) to
change an engine in the parking lot of Summit Racing.
The story goes that Finnegan's wife's grandfather bought this1969 Chevy El
Camino brand new, and it's been passed down through the family, finally to
her. It's a solid car, and the suspension has been hopped up, but the
all-original 350 engine was smoking like a freight train. That didn't stop
the guys from limping it from Los Angeles, California to Sparks, Nevada,
where Summit Racing has a fully-stocked warehouse.
Summit sells every speed part and replacement part on Earth, including the
420hp, 383ci crate engine, so the logic was that the guys would save time
on the engine swap because they could walk right into the store instead of
driving to a parts store multiple times, as they would have back home.
So how long will it take a couple gearheads to change an engine outside in
a snow flurry? Will the EPA shut them down before they can finish? And what
happens when you let a carsick dog ride shotgun? Watch to find out!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
