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
357 V8 1987 Pontiac Trans Am Update
We thought it was time for an update on my son's 1987 Pontiac Trans Am.
Yesterday, we brought home a nice 357 Chevy small block that is going to
take the place of the original 305 TPI. It should offer a substantial bump
in power, thanks to 52 more cubic inches, and a cam with a bit more lift.
We're also going to switch over to a carb just for the sake of simplicity.
We'll probably go back to fuel injection when we do an LS swap in the
future. We'll have many more videos on this project in the near future.
Thanks for watching!
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
we can prepare it for paint. I ordered our new carburetor as well and it
should be here in a couple days. I hope you are finding these vids
interesting...thanks for watching!
133266 / 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Super Duty
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/brpb3mq
If you missed the opportunity to take home our RKM Performance restored
SD-455 a few months ago, this badass Cameo Firebird is your second chance
to become king of the muscle car hill!
Assembled at GM's Norwood, Ohio manufacturing facility, and delivered to
John Kralovetz via Bill Mowbray Motors in Brownsville, Texas, this awesome
F2 Trans Am's factory correct appearance is simply spectacular. Thanks to
spending most of its life in the warm and dry climate of the Southwestern
United States, the car's rounded body was fairly straight when its
restoration began; and given that body's distinct lack of rust, it should
come as no surprise that panel gaps are excellent and fit feels rock solid.
Of course, by the looks of this Pontiac's super smooth finish, someone
must've spent weeks alone blocking and sanding every one of its panel in
hopes of forming a laser-straight showpiece. And once the car's correct
coat of Cameo White urethane was sealed in a glossy clearcoat shell,
decorated with correct Trans Am call-outs and crowned with a coveted
Screamin' Chicken hood decal, I'd say they definitely accomplished that
This car's highly detailed SD-455, which hangs a correct 490132 casting
number and a November (K) 11th (11) of 1972 (2) casting date behind a
correct XD engine stamp, has been bored .030 over, completely balanced and
fully rebuilt to all its showroom glory. At the top of that big engine, a
traditional Trans Am underhood induction system feeds fresh air to a
correct 4-barrel carburetor that's bolted to a correct Pontiac intake. That
intake sends a high octane air/fuel mixture into unique, high flow cylinder
heads which have been equipped with Crane 1.65 roller rockers, high quality
ARP rocker studs and traditional stamped steel valve covers. And those
heads utilize a nodular iron crankshaft, Clevite main bearings, Clevite rod
bearings, ARP Speedpro pistons and rings, and an NOS "Y" camshaft to create
rocket-like combustion. Spark for that combustion is provided by a
traditional points distributor which shoots fire through correct Packard TV
R Suppression wires. Waste from that combustion is handled by fully
restored Exhaust manifolds which roar
into a stainless true dual Exhaust
system. And heat from that combustion is controlled by a leak-free radiator
which is hooked to fresh hoses via correct tower clamps and a correct
plastic fan shroud.
Behind that monster motor a virtually indestructible GM turbo-Hydramatic 400 transmission, which wears a
1973 (73) Super Duty-specific (P2Q) tag and a correct partial VIN, sends
power to a familiar 10 bolt Safe-T-Track rear end that does a great job on
both the back roads and the interstate. Below that stellar powertrain a
rebuilt Trans Am suspension, which includes power steering, thicker sway
bars, better shocks and stiffer springs, combines with standard issue power
front disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling.
At the center of the car, a power Boosting true dual Exhaust system utilizes an X-pipe crossover and
welded Magnaflow mufflers to bark out a deep, vintage roar. And all this
road ready hardware rolls on a restored set of Pontiac Rally II wheels
which spin proven 235/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around pristine arrowhead
In terms of interior décor, Pontiac's 70s team was firing on all eight
cylinders. The rebuilt custom bucket seats are supple, firm, and look every
bit as nice and rich as their name implies. Below those seats, like-new
carpet, which is carefully protected by thick rubber mats, displays no
fading or unraveling; and between those seats, a molded black console props
an enclosed storage bin behind a chrome shifter and a factory correct
8-track player. At the sides of the car, hard to find door panels hang
pristine chrome handles between chrome window cranks and full armrests. And
in front of the driver, an optional tilt steering column spins a black
Formula steering wheel around an engine turned instrument panel, sliders
for the car's climate system and a correct Delco AM radio.
If your definition of classic Detroit muscle is a highly accurate,
beautifully presented, meticulously crafted Pontiac, it's your lucky day!

1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertibles Video 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals MCACN V8TV
http://www.mcacn.com - The 2012 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals (MCACN)
show accomplished the seemingly impossible task of bringing 6 of the
original 8 1969 Pontiac Trans Am Convertibles together in one display!
These cars are among the "Holy Grail" muscle cars, as not only are they
super rare, they are all very cool. Four were automatics, four 4-speeds,
all had Ram Air III 400 V8s under the hood, along with the white paint
scheme with blue stripes. Other exterior cues include the steel Ram Air
hood, the rear deck spoiler, and the air extractors on the fenders. Here,

Extreme Elco Engine Swap! - Roadkill Episode 4
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan and a carsick
dog drive a '69 El Camino 500 miles from home (on seven cylinders) to
change an engine in the parking lot of Summit Racing.
The story goes that Finnegan's wife's grandfather bought this1969 Chevy El
Camino brand new, and it's been passed down through the family, finally to
her. It's a solid car, and the suspension has been hopped up, but the
all-original 350 engine was smoking like a freight train. That didn't stop
the guys from limping it from Los Angeles, California to Sparks, Nevada,
where Summit Racing has a fully-stocked warehouse.
Summit sells every speed part and replacement part on Earth, including the
420hp, 383ci crate engine, so the logic was that the guys would save time
on the engine swap because they could walk right into the store instead of
driving to a parts store multiple times, as they would have back home.
So how long will it take a couple gearheads to change an engine outside in
a snow flurry? Will the EPA shut them down before they can finish? And what
happens when you let a carsick dog ride shotgun? Watch to find out!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
