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!

Bending Headers with Oxy Propane Torch at Ritter Cycle Racing

 

Jordan was having some fitment issues with his new headers for the Trans Am. They need a bit of persuading with the torch, so we went to see our buddy Rick Ritter. Once again, Rick helped get Jordan back on the road again. Thanks again Rick!

Trans Am First Drive After Wreck

The weather was a little better today, so Jordan decided to take the Trans Am for the first drive since his wreck. We really expected the car to be down for a lot longer, but Jordan put in some long hours to get it finished quick. He completed most of the bodywork, installed the new exhaust, repaired the transmission, and added some new wheel centers. The car is a long way from perfect, but Jordan says it will do until spring. When warmer weather gets here, he plans to swap on a different hood, finish the bodywork, and give it a fresh coat of paint. For now, he’s just happy to be driving it again. We thank you all for your comments and support, we appreciate it. Thanks for watching!

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!

Custom 1936 Ford Hot Rod Pickup

Call it a rat rod, hot rod, or whatever you like, but it’s definitely cool. This custom 1936 Ford has all the tough hot rod looks, but with a few modern conveniences thrown in. It’s powered by a 350 small block Chevy V8, topped with an Edelbrock 4 BBL carb. The power is being sent through a turbo 350 automatic, back to a 9″ Ford rear with 3.27 gears. They have added disc brakes, an aluminum radiator, an electric fan, power windows, custom Jack Daniels bed floor, tinted and double laminated glass, aftermarket gauges, and even a couple auxiliary power outlets for your cell phone, GPS, etc. It fires right up and it sounds mean with those headers coming straight out the sides. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!
