Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 15 - Started the shortblock assembly!
Update on the build.. painting the oil pan, installing crankshaft and
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 21 - Removing other head and modifying oil cooler lines
Recovering from the 'wrong head gasket' fiasco and also modifying the oil
cooler line to enable new heater hose routing behind engine to clean up top
side of engine bay.
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 11 - engine bay and block painting base coat clear coat
The big event is here! After days of preparation, I finally get to paint
the firewall and engine bay, as well as the block. Paint used is PPG
Concept 9700 Black. Turned out decent for the conditions I was painting in
(94 degrees and outdoors). Blinding sun and black hole dark 9700 is a
tough thing to paint Iv'e learned!
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 24 - First drive & Radiator replace
Having issues with cooling just like the engine before this one. I swapped
the radiator but still overheating...
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 19 - Head bolts, oil pan and installing the engine
Bad Luck on this one.. after getting it in place I discovered I had the
wrong head gaskets. Had to pull the heads in the car and replace with the
correct gaskets :( Anyway I figured I'd go ahead and upload this one since
I'm documenting the entire engine build anyway. Just a bit depressing to
see all of this work go to waste!
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 7 - spraying 3M™ Overspray Masking Liquid Dry masking
Awesome stuff! Instead of hours of taping and hoping you didn't leave a
leak somewhere, this stuff just sprays over the entire car to protect it
from overspray while painting.
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 26 - Tuning, Cussing, ring seating, cussing, new fan, more cussing

tired. New engine will be going in once this engine is out and the engine
bay paint work is completed.
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
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 4 - pressure washing the engine bay before painting
Degreasing and cleaning up the engine bay in preparation for finishing up
the under-hood paint work. I had already painted the wheel wells and core
support but now that the engine is out I can finally paint the firewall and
Turbo Iroc - engine swap part 8 - priming the cross member and firewall area
Now we're getting somewhere! Crossmember is primed along with areas of
firewall that were rubbed down to metal.
