I am going post some here and others on a link. Thank you all, good to be back in a TA. If I go back to a Pontiac engine, I'd have to rewire the car harness to match or replace the engine harness.
DriveTrain / Fumes and Converter
« Last post by 86cookiemonster on October 28, 2014, 04:41:44 PM »
I have a 78 trans am with the W72 package on it. Earlier this year I was having a problem with getting a lot of fuel vapors in the car. I knew what that problem was, I had disconnected the char coal canister because I kept getting bits of char coal in my carb.  I rebuilt that unit, and it is now reinstalled and functioning properly.

All was well in my world.

Well now I have yet another fumes issue.  I am getting a lot of exhaust fumes in the car now.  I've checked the entire exhaust and the only place it looks like it could be leaking is the converter.  I have suspected that its days where numbered for a while now, and I have come to the conclusion that it needs replaced.

I have found two direct fit converters one made by flowmaster, and one made by magnaflow. My question is is there anyone here who has used either of these two products, their thoughts, and a recommendation on which way to go
DriveTrain / Re: Lifter "Tick" - Newly rebuilt 400

Hey guys....
believe it or not... the "ticking/lifter noise" seems to have just healed its self..!!  Upon starting there is just a tiny lifter tick but it only lasts about 1 to 2 seconds.

I changed the oil also at about 200 miles on the rebuild.  there was no metal in the oil.. All looked really good and clean.

LilSki - I will keep my eye on them header gaskets!!  I got them from Ram Air Restorations along with their oversized Headers..

Check Out Ram Air Restorations Headers and Full Exhaust X-Over systems for your 78 TA..

I recently had my 400 Rebuilt and added the Ram Air Restoration Ultimate X Over system along with their Oversized Ram Air Headers.. I also went with their Goerlich muffles.. In all honesty - my TA breaths much better and sounds awesome!!!!! 

When I ordered - I purchased everything - from the Exhaust manifold gaskets all the way back! Gaskets, Bolts, Hangers, Mufflers and exhaust pips. Everything!  I did have to order the Tips from another company.

Give them a call and ask for Paul.. they are very helpful and i would recommend them!

I could not be happier with the performance and sound..!!
