Ok, so it's time for me to move on to another chapter with my Fiero. This time I won't be following the V6 route so I will ditch my mildly modded 2.8 in favor of more standard HP baseline and leaner mass. A family friend has given me a 1991 Grand Prix with a LO Quad4 engine "Vin D" mated to a 125c auto tranny. The Car has been sitting in their front yard for almost 6 months. I know is not the HO version but with minor modding it can reach that level. I always wanted a Quad4 and finally got my chance not to mention the whole car is free!
What I'm planning to do to get it started is rebuilt the whole engine to HO specs with new pistons, HO cams and damper, custom header (obiusly needed), and mild port and polish the 086 head. I will use ARP studs and bolts from Top to Bottom for added safety. My Fiero is auto from stock so I will just rebuilt the Quad tranny with a good kit (Alto probably) a good band, shift kit and higher stall converter (probably use the one in the quad). I will try to get a hold on another cradle to make the swap easier. What I'm planning is to put the engine running good NA for now. Turbo will be later since I have a T3/T4 hybrid laying around which also got for free.
I have done some searching and reading but need more information on what is needed to accomplish this swap. Now let's get to the questions.
1- How many engine mounts I need to fabricate to mount it in the Fiero?
2- Where do they need to be located?
3- Where can I get drawings of the mounting point fabrication if any?
4- Where can I find wiring diagrams?
5- What mods can be done to the 125c to handle 6500 rpms at least?
More questions later.
