Trans Am on the Backroads and a Few Burnouts

Jordan was out cruising the Trans Am around on some backroads yesterday and he had the GoPro running. It got a little squirrelly on him a couple of times and he managed to find a cop out amidst the corn fields somehow. We through some burnout clips at the end, just to keep things interesting. Thanks for watching, we appreciate it!

Pontiac Trans Am Burnouts – Lopey Cammed V8

The weather was great, so Jordan decided to take the Trans Am for a little spin…and a couple burnouts. He’s about to buy some new tires, so he wasn’t too worried about laying down some rubber. He also made a cardboard stencil and sprayed the Goodyear lettering on his tires, just to see what it would look like. He figured it was a good time to try it, since he’ll be done with these tires soon. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Third Gen Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Burnouts Flyby high speed

Pontiac Trans Am Burnout and High-speed Flybys

Jordan switched out the glasspack mufflers, for some Cherry Bomb Extremes yesterday. He decided to take it out for a little spin and see how it sounds. We figured we’d shoot an idle clip, a burnout, and some high-speed flybys… so you could get a good idea of the overall sound. We hope you find it interesting, thanks for watching!

Trans Am Road Test – Third Gen Burnout and High Speed Touring

Jordan decided to take the Trans Am out for a little road test today. He is still trying to keep the RPM’s to a reasonable level and not spin it too hard yet. He has put quite a few break-in miles on it so far though, and it seems to be doing well. We hope you find this interesting, we’ll have many more to come. Thanks for watching!

Trans Am – First Start up, Cam Break In, and Wicked Idle

It’ll be a little while before we can really see what it’s got, but it sure sounds mean. The cam break-in sure was nerve racking. We’re sure glad to have that part over with and hopefully things go smoothly from here on out. We still have a lot of tuning to do on the car, but I know a bunch of you were waiting to hear it run. The idle on that Howards cam definitely sounds plenty healthy. From the little bit of accelerating we did from 2500 RPM to 4200 RPM, it feels like it’s going to be a strong runner. We’re going to take it easy for a bit though and break it in well. Thanks for watching, we’ll have more updates coming soon!

Trans Am Burnout and High Speed Flyby

We had the Trans Am out again today after a little tuning.  Thought we’d do a little burnout and a flyby for you.  It seems to be running really strong now.  Thanks for taking a look!

 

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.
