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!
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!
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
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
Almost Done - Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 10 357 V8 Street Demon Carb
This is Part 10 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We've
been swapping in a carbed 357 small block in place of the original 305 TPI.
Since the last video, we installed the distributor, plugs, and wires. We
also plumbed in the temporary fuel setup with a Mallory 4309 Regulator.
Then, I painted the factory valve covers and tightened up the belts. We
only have a few more things to get done before we can fire this engine up
for the first time. I hope you find the videos interesting...thanks for

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 350 cid
5.7L V8 engine and a stunning new paint job.
The monstrous hood scoops and huge air vents added to the all black
exterior makes it a very bad-ass looking muscle car beast! The Exhaust sound is pretty awesome too! Enjoy.

LQ4 Install - Thirdgen F-Body - Motor install from the bottom
Watch in HD!!
The time is FINALLY here! I got most of a day to put the motor and trans
back into my car! This video is mostly time lapsed. It took me about an
hour total. Mostly because of fiddling with the camera, and having the
dolly wheels sink into the driveway. Took me some time to get it moving
This method works great for me. Mainly because trying to snake a motor and
trans over the front of that car is a pain. I have zero desire to remove
that hood and try to line it back up again. And installing/tightening
those engine mount bolts while its in the car is a real pain too. This way
always works good for me, and as you can see, is totally doable by myself.
I could have used a second set of hands though just to help shove things
around and line things up.
I had some technical difficulties with my camera, and there is some lost
footage of me talking through a few steps, but its no real loss.
Enjoy! If you have any questions or comments please feel free!

This our first video of the Trans Am in action after the engine swap.
Obviously, the videos will be more interesting after we break the engine in
a bit more. Right now, we are still adjusting and tuning things. After the
engine has sufficient time to break in, we'll show you what it can really
do. Thanks for watching!
