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!

This is the fourth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. This is my son's first project car and we're having a lot of fun with it. In this video, you get to see how we removed the old 305 TPI engine. In the days ahead, we'll be cleaning up the engine bay and getting rid of any unnecessary wiring or equipment. Then we'll be ready to drop in the new 357 small block V8.
