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!
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

Trans Am Engine Swap Part 5 - 357 V8
This is the fifth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series. In
this video, I show the ECM and all the related wiring that we removed from
the car. Jordan and I also have begun cleaning up the engine bay, so that
we can prepare it for paint. I ordered our new carburetor as well and it
should be here in a couple days. I hope you are finding these vids
interesting...thanks for watching!
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
