The 1981 Trans Am Turbo 301 is an engine that Pontiac produced for the 1980 and 1981 Trans Am. It was a V8
engine with a displacement of 301 cubic inch which produced an officially factory rated 210 hp (157 kW) and 345
lb⋅ft (468 N⋅m) of torque in 1980. In 1981 it underwent some changes and offered a conservatively rated 200 hp
(149 kW) and 340 lb⋅ft (460 N⋅m) of torque. The Turbo Trans Am was first added to the Pontiac model lineup
in 1979 as a 1980 model year, and was the first production Pontiac V8 engine to utilize forced induction; in this
case through an exhaust-driven turbocharging system. It was only available for two years, in the 1980 & 1981 model
year, which were also the last two years of this body style of the Trans Am, before it was succeeded by the all-new
third-generation F-body in 1982.
