I recently took a day trip to elkhart ind. and met Norm Vandermee Me, my dad and oh yeah the wife went and met norm and seen what he had to offer, well he is a great source for fiero tech, he provided my dad with an adapter so he could make a stencile of it well my dad a trained machinist used his micrometer and other tools and had a blueprint made in no time. anyhow i am now where i can offer either a set of prints or a finished adapter if anyone is wanting one, so feel free to ask let me know at liftedjeep93@yahoo.com

Hello, Thats a good question, I dont know it was something I had laying around here for the last ten years or so. Its not something I want to get involved with, dont have the other brackets or mounts. I figured a long time ago not to do it(not that I couldnt), Archie builds one that been around and he stands behind it so why should I bother him.

There's more to a V-8 kit than an adapter plate and I'm not just talking about hardware.

If you have a SBC block and a Fiero transaxle, I don't think it would be difficult to measure them and draw out a "blueprint" that will work. I don't think Archie or anyone else will lose business over someone selling a adapter plate or "blueprints".
