This is part 3 of our engine swap series. My son and I are converting his car from a 305 TPI to a carbed 357 V8. Today, we continued removing all the accessories from the engine. We took off the power steering pump, water pump, A/C Compressor and lines, headers, etc. Tomorrow the engine will be coming out and we'll start cleaning up the engine bay. Thanks for watching along!
Pontiac Trans Am Engine Swap Part 4 - Removing the Engine - 305 TPI to 357 Carbed
This is the fourth part in our 1987 Pontiac Trans Am engine swap series.
This is my son's first project car and we're having a lot of fun with it.
In this video, you get to see how we removed the old 305 TPI engine. In
the days ahead, we'll be cleaning up the engine bay and getting rid of any
unnecessary wiring or equipment. Then we'll be ready to drop in the new
357 small block V8. I hope you find our project interesting...thanks for
Trans Am Road Trip to Carlyle Lake
Jordan and I decided to take the Trans Am for a drive over to Carlyle Lake.
The lake covers over 26,000 acres, or 40 square miles. It was a great day
to be out cruising around and Jordan's car did really well. Of course, we
can't drive anywhere without at least punching the gas a time or two. Hope
you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

1949 Ford Shoebox 239 Flathead V8 2 Dr
I thought you might like a look at this very clean "Shoebox" Ford. This
1949 Ford 2 door is powered by the original 239 Flathead V8, backed by a
manual trans. The red paint is slick, the chrome looks great, and the
interior has been completely redone. I hope you find it interesting,
thanks for taking a look!
