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!

Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 11 - Fuel Pump Choke and Fans
This should be the last video before we start the car. Today, or plan is to fire it up for the first time. For those who haven't been following along...my son and I are swapping in a carbed 357 in place of the original TPI 305. It has been a fun project so far, with only a couple minor issues to this point. Thanks for watching, 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.

134282 / 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/nqyv2xl This awesome 1978 Trans Am is a numbers-matching time capsule that combines 29,579 original miles with enduring Pontiac performance and all-American style! Assembled at GM's Norwood manufacturing facility in January of 1978, this brassy pony car appears to have led the Motown easy life. Its unique coat of GM code 50 Solar Gold still pays excellent homage to factory body panels that are as solid, straight and sculpted as the day they left the showroom floor. An outfit of tri-color Trans Am call-outs trace a brown, yellow and gold hood decal to complete the car's transformation from a regular 'bird into full-tilt screamin' chicken. And today, this F2 looks just as good as you'd expect any 35 year old, mostly unrestored F-body to look; featuring classic lines and sizzling graphics that create one of the most iconic brandings in automotive history! Pop this tin indian's dramatic hood and you'll find a stout, 400 cubic inch Pontiac V8 that forms a correct, 'strong block' XX481988 casting number behind a 4-speed-exclusive assembly stamp and matching partial VIN. Thanks to government-mandated emissions standards, performance had almost been legislated out of existence; and that left the Trans Am suffering a bit of an identity crisis. This 'bird's "WC" branded L78 combined the largest muscle car engine you could buy with Pontiac's proven "6X" head design and newfound handling prowess to create one of the fastest pony cars on the market. At the top of the smooth engine, a big Holley carburetor and aluminum Edelbrock intake ride under a familiar Trans Am shaker. Below that carburetor, correct, GM Corporate Blue paint coats the entire block, while big, long-tube headers send spent gases into an aluminized, true-dual Exhaust system. In the middle of the car's Ziebart-coated floors, a Borg Warner Super T-10 4-speed hangs a familiar 1304065903 casting number and September (9) 29th (29) of 1977 (77) assembly date above matching partial VINs. That aluminum transmission sends power to a familiar GM 10-bolt that's fitted with friendly 3.08 gears. Below that stellar powertrain, a correct WS4 Trans Am suspension, which includes factory power steering, thicker sway bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with 4-wheel power disc brakes to provide quick stops and great handling. And at the corners of that suspension, aluminum 'snow flake' wheels spin classic gold paint between 'gold bird' center caps and modern 225/70 Goodyear Eagle STs. Open this Pontiac's massive doors and you'll find a stylish blend of black and white vinyl that creates a striking, yet comfortable cockpit. The car's thick seats are surprisingly firm and, carrying hides that seem much newer than typical survivor attire, present like a fresh restoration. In front of those seats, a bright, engine-turned dash hangs crystal clear gauges above a clean radio delete. And in front of the driver, a familiar Formula steering wheel spins a 'red bird' horn button around a tilting steering column. This awesome 29,579 mile Trans Am is the kind of car that you can take to the cruise in on a hot Saturday night, then drive to work on a sunny Monday morning. If you're in the market some quintessential American muscle, call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!





132636 / 1980 Pontiac Trans Am Turbo Pace Car
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cxmoqkm As one of only 5,700 cars built to commemorate the first time one car paced both the Indy 500 and Daytona 500 in the same year, this 1980 Trans Am turbo Pace Car is one of the most exclusive Trans Ams ever built. Owned by one very meticulous owner and garage kept for its entire existence, this pristine California Pontiac is one of the cleanest second generation Trans Ams we've ever offered. Thanks to three decades of exceptional maintenance and a little cosmetic T.L.C. from RK Motors Charlotte's first rate restoration shop, the car presents as well today as it did it when it rolled off the showroom floor over 30 years ago. A bright and crisp coat of correct GM code 11 Cameo White covers 100% original body panels which are straight, rock solid and free of waves and major imperfections. Because this Trans Am has never been fully disassembled, it still displays completely accurate panel gaps that are surprisingly tight and provide the car with great panel fitment and correct factory alignment. On top of the ghost white panels, a fresh set of tri-color outlining stripes perfectly complements a five color 'turbo bird' hood decal and factory applied Indianapolis 500 Pace Car door stickers to complete the look. Under this Trans Ams "turbo" stamped hood you'll find an all original Pontiac code YL turbocharged 301 V8 that made substantially more twist than the mighty 6.6 liter it replaced while being significantly more efficient. Originally conceived as an economy offering, the Pontiac 301 was beefed up with a slew of upgrades in preparation for a Garrett TBO-305 turbocharger. Once the turbo was installed, it created a waste limited 9 PSI of Boost and helped the reborn 301 achieve 236 horsepower and a serious 345 lb./ft. of torque. Riding below a factory installed heat shield that prevents the paint on the car's hood from bubbling, that Garrett blower is fed by a high pressure fuel pump, cooled by a high pressure oil pump and breathes through turbo specific Exhaust manifolds. Below the turbo, a YL 301 specific Rochester Quadrajet M4ME 800 CFM carburetor sits in front of an original HEI distributor which sends power to the cylinders through blue Belden Edge plug wires. All the hard parts around the motor, from the belt driven accessories to the brake Booster and turbo mandated C51 air conditioning are factory original pieces, and all the belts and hoses appear to be in good working order. Behind the motor, the cars original tough and proven turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission sends power to the cars original 3.08 Posi-traction rear end, and a standard WS6 handling package. For 1980, the WS6 package included larger sway bars, better shocks and springs, a tighter steering gear box and newly designed power front and rear disc brakes that, when combined with the cars standard power steering, made for serious handling ability and greatly reduced stopping distances. Power flows to the pavement through pliable 225/70 white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radials that are mounted to exclusive 15 inch 'turbo' style aluminum wheels. The cars all original fully equipped Oyster interior features optional doeskin vinyl with hobnail cloth inserts which creates a sophisticated appearance. The firm and comfortable seats are nicely patterned pieces that feel every bit as comfortable as they look, and the original brown carpet shows very little wear. Between the seats, a clean gray console houses chrome switches for the cars power windows behind an engine turned shift plate, and above the seats, a stain free headliner is stretched tight around the cars mirrored tops. In front of the driver, an excellent looking engine turned dash houses crystal clear gauges above controls for heat and air conditioning and the cars exclusive Delco-GM seek/scan stereo cassette player. At the sides of the seats, excellent Oyster door panels that feature bright 'turbo bird' embroidery are detailed in pristine stainless trim and chrome door handles and door lock buttons. Connecting the driver to the road is a correct aluminum steering wheel that features a gray rim and sits on an optional tilt steering column. With its clean turbocharged motor, fantastic interior and rare low mileage, this has to be one of the nicest Trans Am turbo Pace Cars available anywhere.

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.

The 30 Minute Street Demon Carburetor Install Challenge Video V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - 314-783-8325 - Demon Carburetors recently released an advertisement suggesting you can install a new Street Demon carburetor and have your car running properly within 30 minutes. We decided to take that challenge, and installed a Street Demon onto V8TV fabricator John Moss's 1972 Chevy Nova. The car is powered by a 383 stroker and was suffering from temperamental carburetor issues. The Street Demon is an all new design that features several innovations including a leakproof main body, 625 CFM airflow rating, small primaries with a large goggle valve vacuum secondary, and minimal adjustment requirements. Watch the video to see if John was able to not only install the Street Demon in the 30 minute window, but to see what a difference this carburetor made on his Nova!
