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!

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.

Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 3 - 357 V8
This is part 3 of our engine swap series. My son and I are converting his car from a 305 TPI to a carbed 357 V8. Today, we continued removing all the accessories from the engine. We took off the power steering pump, water pump, A/C Compressor and lines, headers, etc. Tomorrow the engine will be coming out and we'll start cleaning up the engine bay. Thanks for watching along!





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.

1997 Subaru Legacy Front Axle Replacement -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Solving Performance Problems 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsGTeWayqIU Solving Performance Problems 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sAKwCzUE_9M Re Performance Problems http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vAJi5rLMGY Discussion about this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/component/kunena/18-The-EricTheCarGuy-Video-Fo rum/41773-1997-Subaru-Legacy-Axle-Replacement?Itemid=0#41773 So while I was doing an oil change the other day I found that the axles on my Subaru Legacy were quite loose on their mounts. I thought the easiest thing to start with was to replace the axles and recheck for the condition. I had read somewhere where aftermarket axles had caused a hesitation on acceleration and wondered if my loose axles could be causing that condition for me. Replacing the axles didn't solve the hesitation problem but it did make for some good video on the process. I also hope to go back and see how to set the preload on the carrier bearings, that will be in another video. Till then enjoy this axle installation video.

133266 / 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Super Duty
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/brpb3mq If you missed the opportunity to take home our RKM Performance restored SD-455 a few months ago, this badass Cameo Firebird is your second chance to become king of the muscle car hill! Assembled at GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility, and delivered to John Kralovetz via Bill Mowbray Motors in Brownsville, Texas, this awesome F2 Trans Am's factory correct appearance is simply spectacular. Thanks to spending most of its life in the warm and dry climate of the Southwestern United States, the car's rounded body was fairly straight when its restoration began; and given that body's distinct lack of rust, it should come as no surprise that panel gaps are excellent and fit feels rock solid. Of course, by the looks of this Pontiac's super smooth finish, someone must've spent weeks alone blocking and sanding every one of its panel in hopes of forming a laser-straight showpiece. And once the car's correct coat of Cameo White urethane was sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell, decorated with correct Trans Am call-outs and crowned with a coveted Screamin' Chicken hood decal, I'd say they definitely accomplished that goal. This car's highly detailed SD-455, which hangs a correct 490132 casting number and a November (K) 11th (11) of 1972 (2) casting date behind a correct XD engine stamp, has been bored .030 over, completely balanced and fully rebuilt to all its showroom glory. At the top of that big engine, a traditional Trans Am underhood induction system feeds fresh air to a correct 4-barrel carburetor that's bolted to a correct Pontiac intake. That intake sends a high octane air/fuel mixture into unique, high flow cylinder heads which have been equipped with Crane 1.65 roller rockers, high quality ARP rocker studs and traditional stamped steel valve covers. And those heads utilize a nodular iron crankshaft, Clevite main bearings, Clevite rod bearings, ARP Speedpro pistons and rings, and an NOS "Y" camshaft to create rocket-like combustion. Spark for that combustion is provided by a traditional points distributor which shoots fire through correct Packard TV R Suppression wires. Waste from that combustion is handled by fully restored Exhaust manifolds which roar into a stainless true dual Exhaust system. And heat from that combustion is controlled by a leak-free radiator which is hooked to fresh hoses via correct tower clamps and a correct plastic fan shroud. Behind that monster motor a virtually indestructible GM turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission, which wears a 1973 (73) Super Duty-specific (P2Q) tag and a correct partial VIN, sends power to a familiar 10 bolt Safe-T-Track rear end that does a great job on both the back roads and the interstate. Below that stellar powertrain a rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes power steering, thicker sway bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling. At the center of the car, a power Boosting true dual Exhaust system utilizes an X-pipe crossover and welded Magnaflow mufflers to bark out a deep, vintage roar. And all this road ready hardware rolls on a restored set of Pontiac Rally II wheels which spin proven 235/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around pristine arrowhead center caps. In terms of interior décor, Pontiac's 70s team was firing on all eight cylinders. The rebuilt custom bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every bit as nice and rich as their name implies. Below those seats, like-new carpet, which is carefully protected by thick rubber mats, displays no fading or unraveling; and between those seats, a molded black console props an enclosed storage bin behind a chrome shifter and a factory correct 8-track player. At the sides of the car, hard to find door panels hang pristine chrome handles between chrome window cranks and full armrests. And in front of the driver, an optional tilt steering column spins a black Formula steering wheel around an engine turned instrument panel, sliders for the car's climate system and a correct Delco AM radio. If your definition of classic Detroit muscle is a highly accurate, beautifully presented, meticulously crafted Pontiac, it's your lucky day!
