Anyone ever build a engine test stand? any tricks to set one up for a fiero engine? I cant see spending $2000.00 on what they pass off as a engine test stand at most places... That's a complete ripoff for a metal dolly with a few engine mounts on it.

Why can't you just build it on an actual fiero subframe drop out and hook it up? Shouldn't be so hard, and it'll be a REAL mock up.

I don't think it would be that hard. I've thought about doing it in the future.
It would be especially great if you do multiple engine swaps.
Kinda like how Fieroguru has a dedicated rear of the car for fitment on swaps.
