My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
I've been looking for a car for my son for a while now. He wanted
something that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a
third generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to
be a bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore
and modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car
is a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner
already added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor
and coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks,
subframe connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a
great base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for
Custom 1972 Pontiac Firebird - V8 sound!
Jamboolio records a fully restored 1972 Pontiac Firebird with the 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.

Black Intercoolers - Mythbusting Mighty Car Mods
Should you paint your Intercooler black? Does it help to
paint your Intercooler black?
Will painting your Intercooler black increase your cars
performance? No, it will not. The guys at MightyCarMods have made a
fantastic (no sarcasm, it's a great video) video explaining why you should
paint your Intercooler black.
The information they provide is great, but the conclusion is wrong. Let's
take a look at why.
Mighty Car Mods Video
Cold Air Intakes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hiod1c2Py70
How could heat rejection by convection be improved by adding an insulating
layer? The real answer? It can't. For those of you who haven't checked out
the video, it's fascinating and I highly recommend it. It's actually a
great video, and a well performed test, but it ends with the wrong
Lets talk about radiation and convection for a moment, and why one might
think they should paint their radiator black. It all comes down to
emissivity. Emissivity (on a scale of 0-1) is the rate of radiation that
can be emitted from a surface. In simple terms, how much heat it gives off
Aluminum Foil: E: 0.07,
Black Paint: E: 0.98
The higher the number, the higher the rate of radiation. Blackbody, which
has the highest rate of radiation, has an emissivity of 1.
Black bodies give off the greatest amount of radiation. So one might think
that making an Intercooler
black would improve it's performance, because it would give off more heat.
But this is not the case, because Intercoolers are not designed to
dispose of heat via radiation, but via convection.
Radiation: Does not rely on movement of molecules.
Convection: Does rely on the movement of molecules passing by the hot/cool
object which is giving off heat.
Electronical Stig is correct in his statement that emissivity does not have
to do with convection, but Intercoolers are designed to work off
of convection, not radiation! Why? For starters, because your car moves.
That's also why your radiator has a fan, for when it's stopped it can
supply airflow through it.
If the outlet with no paint has a dT of 100, and the outlet of the black Intercooler has a dT of 97, the
Intercooler with no paint is
rejecting more heat. This means the air inlet temperature of the engine
will be less for a non-painted Intercooler!
In the MightCarMods experiment, the fan was very far away from the Intercooler, meaning airflow was
actually quite low. I would imagine as the fan gets closer, the difference
in temperature between the black and sliver Intercoolers would widen further. Intercoolers are designed for
convection, not radiation. If your car is moving, your Intercooler is going to provide you
better performance with minimal insulation. Aluminum is commonly used
because it rejects heat very quickly under convection A simple example,
touching aluminum foil immediately after pulling it out of the oven. I
would NOT recommend touching aluminum foil painted black directly after
pulling it out of the oven. (Don't touch hot stuff, regardless).
There is not a single car manufacturer which comes with a black Intercooler stock (to my knowledge). Is
this because they don't understand emissivity or how to design an Intercooler? Is it because this a new
secret and now the industry will suddenly change? Absolutely not. Some of
the most brilliant minds are behind automotive engine design, and the
reason Intercoolers are not
painted black is because Intercoolers are meant to reject heat
via convection, not radiation.
- Insulation, hinders convection by adding an additional layer which heat
much travel through, prior to being rejected
- More restrictive, decreases airflow through the Intercooler, preventing proper
- If the Intercooler is
exposed to sunlight, which many are (especially with removed bumpers), the
black Intercooler will absorb
a lot of the heat, where as the aluminum Intercooler actually does a very good
job of reflecting the heat.
- Other hot objects (Exhaust manifold,
engine, turbo, etc.) will put more
radiation into the Intercooler if it is painted black,
heating up the intake charge.
- WARMER AIR INTAKE TEMPERATURE
How much you're going to decrease your performance by is highly dependent
on many factors. In many cases, it may be a small difference, and not worth
noting. The major point is, you will not see an advantage from painting
your Intercooler black,
unless your car never moves, and you don't use convection for cooling the
intake charge. Unfortunately, or fortunately, your car moves, and it cools
the intake charge using convection, so the conclusion.
Do not paint your Intercooler

2002 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the 2002 Pontiac Trans Am WS6. During this presentation, we will
take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the
start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and
build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior and
exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only get
from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight
key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any available
options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video without the
good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
