Trans Am Acceleration Runs

The roads finally were clear enough for us to get my son’s 1987 Trans am out today. We decided to hook up the GoPro and do a few short acceleration runs for you. It was about 10 degrees outside, so we didn’t do any outside shots. As soon as it warms up, we’ll have a full update video and show some of the modifications we’ve made recently. We may even let you in on what we plan to do next. I hope you find this interesting, thanks for taking a look.

For those of you that are interested in the setup. It’s a 1987 Trans Am and we’ve swapped in a 357 small block V8 (.040 over 350), topped with an Edelbrock Performer intake and a 625 cfm Street Demon carb. It has shorty headers, a flowmaster Y-pipe, and a single 3″ Inlet Cherry Bomb Extreme Muffler, with dual 2.5 inch outlets. The power is going through a beefed up 700r4 with a shift kit and TCI servo, through an aluminum driveshaft, to a Borg Warner 9 bolt rear, with 3.70 Posi gears. It also has subframe connectors, boxed lower control arms, and lakewood drag shocks. The engine is fairly mild right now (low 300 HP range), but that will be changing shortly.
