Re: Fiero engine swap
Thanks alot guys. I looked at those websites you had, Sid. Very informative.
Greg, that SBC in a Fiero is awful tempting but the price is a little high with the conversion kit AND I love my 19 year old son too much for that right now. Maybe when he grows up a little more and understands about the right place at the right time.
Brandon, I called your company. They gave me a price on both engines. I am going to talk to my son about it. I appreciate it. So, you are the high performance guru there, huh?
Huff, appreciate it.
Derrick, I called the junk yard in Lawrenceville, GA and they show a lot of 3.1's in stock but the guy kept telling me they would not fit a Fiero because his COMPUTER said they were not a match. I told him I understood that but that I would take care of getting it in the car and fab of stuff. He said he couldn't sell me one? What? Told me to get my son another car instead because the Fiero was cheap and wasn't worth putting a motor in. What? I didn't ask for his "expert" advice.
Anyway, I appreciate the help.
The 3.8 and the 4.9 cadillac I couldn't find any around here.
I think the best bet at this time is to get the new reconditioned engine from ATK or go with a 3.1 liter (when I can get one bought).
