Trans Am Update – New Headers – Cammed Lopey Idle and Rev

 

We just thought you might like to hear a clip of the Trans Am idling and revving. After Jordan’s accident, he had to replace the exhaust on the Trans Am. Now, the car has Hedman long tube headers, dual 3″ Hedman X-tension pipes, Jones Full Boar mufflers ( Flowmaster Super 10 copies), and 3″ turndowns. Overall, we’re pretty happy with the sound now. Jordan also put on a different hood since the last video. He still has some modifications to make to it, but it’ll work just fine. When the snow melts, we’ll get it out on the road and do a driving video. Thanks for watching!

 

Trans Am Update & Open Headers Road Test

 

It was a nice day out, so we decided to take the Trans Am for a little road test. Jordan is still waiting on some parts, but he cobbled things together just so he could drive it. The acceleration run at the beginning was with a shorty header on one side and a long tube on the other. With open headers, the size difference left to right didn’t seem to effect it any. Hopefully you find this interesting, we thought it was time for an update. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am First Road Test

 

Jordan decided to take his Trans Am out for it’s first road test since the repairs. He was worried the the transmission might have been damaged when the flexplate came apart, but it seems to be good. He also repaired the oil pump pickup and the engine is showing great oil pressure. He’ll get it out for a better drive when the weather is a little nicer. The wet roads make things a little too exciting when you hammer into it. Obviously, he still needs to put the hood back on and get the rest of his exhaust hooked up. I’m sure he’ll have it all back together shortly. Thanks for watching!
