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!

1987 Trans Am Launch and Fly-bys - Exhaust Sound Cherry Bomb Glasspack
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/RamblinAroundTV This is just a video of a few fly-bys in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am. We wanted to show how the new Cherry Bomb glasspack sounds. It's 23 inches long and has 3 inch inlet/outlet. We thought we might as well do a quick little launch with some tire smoke while we were at it. Also had a brief appearance by an AC Shelby Cobra replica. Hope you find it interesting....thanks for watching! Exhaust setup is mid-length headers with 2.5 in collectors, flowmaster Y-pipe, 3 inch tubing, 3 inch ID Cherry bomb, and 3" tail pipe.





1970 Plymouth Cuda 426 Hemi Pistol Grip Four Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1970 Plymouth Cuda. It's powered by the awesome 426 Hemi, backed by a four-speed with the Pistol Grip Shifter. All that power is sent back to a Dana 60 rear with sure grip. This car was restored in 2010 and still looks like new today. Thanks for checking it out!

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 the videos interesting...thanks for watching!
