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 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
Hood Pin Install 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
We decided to install some hood pins my sons 1987 Pontiac Trans Am project
car. The hood took a pretty good hit from a deer and we were a bit worried
about the latch mechanism. Also, my son has always wanted a car with hood
pins anyway. He still may replace the factory hood with a fiberglass hood,
but we can just drill it out and reuse our same pins. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for watching!

I thought I'd give you another update on the 1987 Pontiac Trans Am project.
This week, we have some good news and some bad news. We hit a little
stumbling block, when a deer decided to jump on the hood of the car. We're
still moving forward though, and we'll have everything sorted out shortly.

Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with an 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.

Trans Am Burnout and Flybys - Testing New Mufflers
Jordan switched out the glasspack mufflers, for some Cherry Bomb Extremes
yesterday. He decided to take it out for a little spin and see how it
sounds. We figured we'd shoot an idle clip, a burnout, and some high-speed
flybys... so you could get a good idea of the overall sound. We hope you
find it interesting, thanks for watching!
