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!





1964 Chevrolet Impala SS 409 V8 Four-speed, Disc Brakes, Air
We thought you might like a look at this very nice 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS. It's powered by the famous 409 V8, topped with a Holley four barrel carb. All that power is being sent through a Muncie four-speed, equipped with a Hurst shifter. This car also features front disc brakes and A/C. The black vinyl interior is in great shape and it features a 120 mph speedometer and a column mounted tach. This car is ready to go. We hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

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!
