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 watching!
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!
Trans Am 357 V8 First Test Drive Video After Engine Swap
This our first video of the Trans Am in action after the engine swap.
Obviously, the videos will be more interesting after we break the engine in
a bit more. Right now, we are still adjusting and tuning things. After the
engine has sufficient time to break in, we'll show you what it can really
do. Thanks for watching!
It's Alive !!! Trans Am Engine Swap Part 12 - 357 V8 Street Demon Carb 1987 Pontiac TA
The Trans Am is finally running again. The engine is sounding really nice.
Just have a few more things to button up before we can take a little test
drive. The main thing holding us back at the moment is the Throttle Valve
Cable for the trans. I need to get it properly set up before we can drive
it. It feels good just to hear it run well though. Thanks for watching
along, we appreciate it. There will still be many more videos to come in
this engine swap series, as well as more vids on restoring/modifying the
Trans Am in other ways.
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!
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!
Ford Mustang Boss 302 V8 Engine Swap for a Scion FR-S
With everybody complaining (and for good reason) that the Toyota GT 86 /
Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ are underpowered, many American shops have found a
way around the problem, thanks to the good old engine swap trick. Today we
are here to talk about a FR-S that skips the ZJZ norm, going for the V8
from the Ford Mustang Boss
Don’t let the GT 86 front fascia confuse you, this is a Scion FR-S and
its engine compartment is now populated by a five-liter vee eight. The
project is close to completion and is being handled by Papadakis Racing.
While these guys also built tC drift car, they stressed the fact that the
FR-S is a “street car with A/C and all luxuries working”. As you can
imagine, this was a complex trip, with a ton of supporting mods.
Interestingly enough, while the crew specifically mentions this is a Boss
302 V8, which is indeed available as a crate engine, judging by the
cylinder head it looks like a Ford Racing Aluminator XS. That would bring a
bit of a financial difference, since the 444 hp Boss 302 unit is offered
for around $12,000, while the 500 hp+ Aluminator XS will set you back
Why was the 2JZ skipped?
There are two types of answers to the question above, an objective one and
a... not-so-objective one. We’ll quickly go over the latter by mentioning
the Supra’s unit would’ve been the obvious choice.
Then there’s the reliability. Sure, you can easily push ZJZs to 700 hp,
but they won’t be able to take the stress of track racing, so many of
these are confined to drag racing. The Ford Racing V8, for instance, comes
with forged internals straight out of the factory.
And perhaps the people who are
street demon test and review part 1
just bought the new demon carberators street demon 625 cfm.. lets see the
beast in action...
carb was bought to replace a edelbrock 600 cfm model 1406 ( entirely too
lean for this motor.. nice for a stocker though) and the edelbrock was a
replacement for a summit racing 600cfm holley clone.
both of these carbs were just too lean and had a caused car to stall when
accelerating from roll or dead stop. Yes the demon fixed it...and then

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

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!
