Were the vented wheel house liners not enough?

The hood vent is more for theme than function.

Ford (shivers) rear spoiler, Ford front hood vent and it has similar lines to the fenders with T/A vents (still working on) and IMSA rear quarters

Let's see... I have owned Fieros pretty much non-stop since 1996ish and have owned just about every engine that is commonly swapped into Fieros except the 3800...

This one came along for the ride... (purchase of 88 Fiero project).
Supposedly a running 120K mile 3800 with factory harness, engine/transmission mounts, low mount alternator, tensioner and dog bone bracket... It was stored with the valve covers and intake off, so it really needs a inspecting and cleaning before doing anything with it. Don't really have any plans for it, probably set it off in the corner for an R&D project some day.




I will bring the rest of the chassis home next weekend.

The LS4/F40 Fiero got some attention by Hot Rod on the Power Tour!

Hey! This is Randy, your localish fiero friend (you redrilled some rotors for me a few weeks ago), I would be interested the 3.8/trans combo if you would decide to get rid of it.

Feel free to swing by some weekend to look it over. I am sure I can be convinced to part with it!

Getting a mention in Hod Rod is very cool....and well deserved!

Too bad you couldn't have taken him for a ride so he wouldn't have to wonder what it is like to have.... "all that power in a 2,807 pound car" LOL!

Good show ole' bean!

HAGO!

On one hand, you have a lot of R&D projects and the 3800 might sit awhile.
On the other, there seems to be a better market for the 3800 stuff.

I’d love to see the cool stuff you could bring to that swap.

Finally had some free time to finish stripping down the 88 project fiero I picked up around the 4th of July and was able to get the mockup LS4/F40 under it. The mock up is "primarily" to lock down the ending and transmission position so I can finalize the engine and transmission mount design...





I say "primarily" because it also allows me to do more mocking up of this:



I have a couple of these, so it will be a matter of cutting and welding to fit. I am also planning to route the front bank into the rear bank by cylinder #2, so I will want to make that portion a little bigger as well.


The end result will be "similar" in function as this, but with geometry to fit the fiero engine bay and I plan to retain the upper half (primary ends) of the factory exhaust manifold.
