Well I graduate in a few days and will no longer have access to toys like this so I figured id get one last little session in. I have made many changes to the car and I learned it is not quite as powerful but runs so well, Im pleased. The big reason Im not putting down as much power is cause I got my boost under control and have it set at only 6 lbs. Before it would creep up to 12 or so and I just do not want to push things that hard on stock internals, 3.4 of course.

Can anyone spot my latest sail window mod? They are officially done.








can you say epic wheel spin?

I will link the videos as soon as they get uploaded to youtube!

I only managed 180hp at the wheels and 220 ft lbs
Not too bad on 6 lbs.

The last 0-60 run was 5.54. I think thats very respectable, right there with the Porsche Boxter. Im very happy with that.

So is that like a vinyl decal on the sail window? Details please.

Oh, and that wheel picture is awesome! Got a high-res shot of that by chance?
Those sound like great cruising numbers, what's the MPG of the 3.4 on 6 pounds, if you don't mind me asking?

I get about 24-25 MPG at 73-75 MPH running the A/C on my 3.4 turbo with similar boost. Note that mine is tuned for reliability and not max HP.

D, you always post the best pics.

I can't say it enough, but I have driven this car, and it is very well built. Damian doesn't cut corners, and I believe him to be an even bigger Fiero nut than me. He absolutely doesn't BS. Being up there with a Boxster is pretty good company for an econo sports car. I have even been in a ride along at last weeks track day event, and I have to say that it is much scarier in the passenger seat with no wheel or pedals to control.

Thanks guys! Ya the sail windows are Kahines parts with a modern pontiac crest and the flat black part is just a vinyl I cut here at the school. It is awesome to be in both the design and automotive departments. I wanted it to be kind of stealth and outline the crest. I think it turned out great!

Ya Im really happy with the numbers, last year I saw as high as 230 but I was having boost control issues and that was up around 12 lbs. I am keeping the boost low cause I want it reliable. Its still got plenty of pep thats for sure.

As far as fuel economy goes I get 26 or so on the freeway doing 75/80 but in town I get considerably less but most of that has to do with the right foot...

Thanks Tony, its been a blast hanging out and I don't know when Ill be back but I will definitely be rocking Fiero Fests in the years to come, but not this year. Im gettin hitched!

You can thank my friends for the pictures, I rarely take any cause Im too busy drivin' or something I just have awesome friends with skillz.

That's a Mustang dyno. You are probably doing 210-220rwhp on a dynojet. That's more in line I think with your 0-60 #s. Nice car!

makes me want to take some kind of auto shop class so I can volunteer my car for the project.

I've got a 3.2 waiting to be assembled and some turbo piping to play with. hopefully i can get numbers like yours when I'm done.

RPM's were between 1700 and 5500.

I will scan the dyno sheet as soon as I can. I am super happy with my car I just cant wipe the grin off my face.

Nice! After all that is what having a Fiero is all about, right? Upgrade it to your standards and use it for what it was build for; to drive it and enjoy it! Good Job man!!
