Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 9 - 357 V8 - Alternator Power Steering Water Pump

We're getting closer now, only a few more things before she'll run. We managed to install the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, heater hoses, and radiator hoses. Now, we basically have to put in the HEI distributor, plugs, and some fuel lines...then we'll be ready to fire it up. There will probably be a couple more vids before we actually start it for the first time. Thanks for watching along, we appreciate it!

Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 8 - Headers Installed - Radiator and Electric Fans
This is part 8 of our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. We have been swapping in a carbed 357 V8 in place of the original 305 TPI. Since the last video, we have installed the headers and hooked up the Exhaust. We also put in the radiator and the electric fans. Next up, we'll start on all the engine accessories. We are all finished under the car and it's ready to be rolled off the ramps. I hope you find this series interesting...thanks for watching!





1972 Chevrolet Nova SS 468 Big-block Pro Street
I thought you'd like a look at this 1972 Chevrolet Nova Pro-street. This car was recently restored and is built with some serious performance upgrades. Under the hood you will find a 468 CID V8 engine. This CID amounts to a whopping 7.67 Liters. Backing up the engine is a turbo 350 transmission. The drive train has just 1000 miles since rebuild and hasn't seen the track. The rear-end of the car is a stout Ford 9" with 4.56 gears. Other options include black vinyl interior, rear fuel cell, rear battery, power steering, Exhaust headers, aluminum radiator, 750 cfm carburetor, and an electric fuel pump. The muscle car Nova was painted in 2009 and looks great. The exterior is white which goes well with the car's black leather interior and roll cage. Thanks for taking a look!

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.

Does Lacquer Thinner Clean Catalytic Converters? -EricTheCarGuy
Link to Scotty Kilmer's Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5icTmYItwiE After watching Scotty's video I was curious if it would actually work. Since we know from my video on diagnosing catalytic converters that the catalytic converters in my Subaru were bad, I though it was a perfect opportunity to try out this theory. I used about 1 quart of lacquer thinner to about 7 gallons of gas. I drove a total of 200 miles and tested the converters. The testing showed a very slight improvement but nothing that I would call significant. It was worth a try. I can say that I did not notice any issues with drivability during or after the test. It may not have fixed the problem, but it didn't seem to cause any other problems either. I feel the check engine light that came on was just a coincidence and not the result of putting lacquer thinner in the gas tank. Here's some useful links for you.

Trans Am 357 V8 5,000 RPM First Time Test Drive - New Valve Covers Too
We recently changed the oil and filter for the second time on the engine. We're now running Mobil 1 Full Synthetic with a Lucas Oil Zinc Additive. It has gone over 500 miles since the engine was built. We still won't be doing any smoky burnouts or anything, until it gets some more miles on it. This was the first time that we've pushed it to 5,000 RPM's...and we only did that in 3rd gear. You can see that he never went over 4500 in first or second. We'll dial in the fuel pressure, timing, etc...a bit better before the next run. Thanks for watching! The background music track is Whiskey on the Mississippi by Kevin MacLeod.
