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!
Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 4 - Removing the Engine - 305 TPI to 357 Carbed
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. I hope you find our project interesting...thanks for

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

It's Alive !!! Trans Am Engine Swap Part 12 - 357 V8 Street Demon Carb 1987 Pontiac TA
The Trans Am is finally running again. The engine is sounding really nice.
Just have a few more things to button up before we can take a little test
drive. The main thing holding us back at the moment is the Throttle Valve
Cable for the trans. I need to get it properly set up before we can drive
it. It feels good just to hear it run well though. Thanks for watching
along, we appreciate it. There will still be many more videos to come in
this engine swap series, as well as more vids on restoring/modifying the
Trans Am in other ways.
1958 Plymouth Belvedere - Christine - Old Start - Cold Start on Christmas Day
Not REALLY a cold start but Christine's been sitting in the garage since
early November because the weather was quite bad, plenty of snow a few
weeks ago. We had a lot of rain during the last week so all the snow and
the salt on the roads is gone. It's Christmas and we had a sunny and
extraordinary warm day (15°C / 60°F), so I took Christine for her very
first Christmas ride! Will she fire up or will she rather stay in her
