1979 Pontiac Trans Am Supercharged LS3 Swap Upgrades at V8 Speed and Resto Shop

1979 Pontiac Trans Am Supercharged LS3 Swap Upgrades at V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This clean 1979 Pontiac Trans Am came to the V8 speed and Resto shop in need of
some major performance upgrades. The car was born with an anemic Oldsmobile 403 V8 engine coupled to a 3 speed automatic transmission. We did an initial dyno run to find it only made 168 horsepower at the rear wheels, which might have been okay for 1979, but definitely not cool for today. The answer to this problem lies in the form of a Edelbrock supercharged Chevrolet performance LS3 V8 backed by a 6-speed T56 Magnum transmission.

The car has already had some suspension upgrades with some cool parts from Hotchkiss, but we are going to install the new Powertrain and dial-in the suspension to make sure the car handles all that Newfound supercharged power. The E Force supercharger relies on an upgraded camshaft from Comp Cams, and is capable of making over 800 horsepower running on E85 fuel. We will be sharing complete build and final dyno videos of this car once the transformation is complete.

If you’ve got a classic, muscle car, Resto Mod, Pro Touring, or Pro Street car that needs some love, we’re happy to chat about it! You can reach us at http://www.v8speedshop.com today.
