Cool Pontiac Trans Am Air Filter

i am a first time ower of a Trans Am. I bought a 1978 400ci Trans Am a few weeks ago and the engine is a bit rough on the exterior. I have bought Edelbrok rocker covers, breather and a Moroso chrome air filter. I am having a problem with putting it all togethere; were pipes and PCVs are going and what to lose and what to keep. I am using the original carb. I have fixed the shaker to the hood so its seperate from the engine.


Thank you
Stewart Macdearmid

I have a '77 T/A 400ci. Whats your exact question, send me an e-mail I'll help you out.

You gotta put the shaker scoop back where it was, if you don't it won't be a shaker anymore.

Hey Again
Sorry about the delay had things to do. Yeah, the problem is with the new air filter there are knockouts for a PCV adapter, now I have a seperate push-on breather on each rocker cover and no PCV going to the air filter. Should I take off the little valve with the two nozzles on it off the old air filter box unit and put in on the new air filter where the knockouts are?And if I should, where do I plum the little valve with the two nozzles on it to?

My charcoal canister also has only one pipe on it. Will this effect the running of the engine? As its is a ***** to start and idle on cold wet days. Its ok when its been running for a while.

And finally do you know what pressure the front and rear tires should be in PSI?

Thousand Thanks
Stu

Any advise would be helpful.
