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!

Trans Am Engine Swap Part 2 - 305 TPI to 357 Carbed Small Block V8
This is the first update on our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap. We'll be pulling the 305 TPI and replacing it with a carbed 357 small block V8. I'm sure much more progress will be made in the next vid. Thanks for watching along, we appreciate it!





1987 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350 restored to stock condition
A quick video of my 1987 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350. Of over 88,000 Firebirds produced in '87 only 2,389 Formula 350 models were made. (2.7% of total production models) Most people opted for the Trans-Am model if acquiring the L98 350 engine, so the Formula 350 is the most rare Firebird model from 1987 as most Formulas were optioned with the 305 engine. I have all Pontiac Historical Society (PRS) documentation including copies of the original invoice and window sticker.





Pontiac Trans Am - Build, Lopey Idle, High Speeds, & Burnout
This video is definitely a little unusual, but we just felt like doing something different. It features some build footage, lopey idle clips, high speed runs, and even a burnout. We tried to make it as interesting as possible. We'll have more new videos of the Trans Am coming soon. Thanks for watching! The background track is "What's He Building in There", by Tom Waits. It's off his 1999 Album "Mule Variations". This video is not monetized, nor do we claime any rights to the music.
