I've got my fingers crossed...

Here's a peek of my cnc spacers that I'm going to try out.. If it doesn't work o-well - I still feel that they were a good design --- I wanted to keep them a secret though... so World,,,, shhhh! Just remember ( I had them first! )




I don't think it's cause nobody likes you....Although your avitar is a little scary. I think most are just speechless due to the nice clean work you are doing on your car! It is looking very nice and I like those plenum risers. I hope they work for you (cause that means it will work for me). Have you checked your clearance between decklid and manifold? When you are done, you should start a build thread. I for one am impressed with your attention to detail.

I did some touch up work on the paint and I completely repainted a fender that didn't quite come out the way I planned. It's looking much better now...

I got it a playmate! ...and the new addition got a battery, a set of coils, and another set when those went, and some grounding leads, and a MAP sensor. Yep, the new one is throwing coils like crazy. It needed an allignment, but that got taken care of. When it was running, it was perfect. I just hope I can get it to stay running.

I pulled the upper intake apart to get at the valves to adjust the lash. Pretty easy since I didn't have the intake put all the way together yet anyway. It just sucks that its outside so I have to wait for the rare nice day to pop up that I can get anything done

Oh, and my brother/roomate has decided to call my recently aquired '86 GT my "new pet"

Pulling the wiring harness looking for possible cause to computer failure.
Finding at the same time issues that are probably making the Fiero run not-so-good
1. Loose wire on ignition module fell out when disconnecting the plug
2. Vacuum line totally broken (possible miss while driving?)

In the process of deleting the bad reproduction wing on my gt. The car was a factory delete on the wing and the po decided the 20 pound fiberglass monster would look good. I just left it on because the holes in the trunk, but my Fiero has had STS (Soggy Trunk Syndrome) since the wing has been on. It should be done today.

Cleaned up the engine bay a bit, and ended up finding a nest for some critter in early stages of construction under my passenger headlight. No critter though...

My Rodney Dickman Dual Strut Kit blew both the struts (it’s a pretty old kit). Original deck lid springs removed means using a nice big prop rod to hold the deck lid up. Not fun when trying to do basic maintenance. Found a good type replacement strut that is used on International school bus emergency flip seats. As I work in the school bus industry, I got a good deal on them. Swap out Rodney’s eye bolt and lower ball holder onto the new struts and they worked pretty good – so good that I only needed one. Also props the hood up a bit higher for better clearance which I like. They’re a pretty good cylinder shock, as they’re built to withstand constant flipping of the seat by children. Hopefully it will last a long time.

ARFiero hooked me up with some 120 mph white face gauges. Hopefully I can get those put on soon. I was also missing some lug covers, which he graciously gave to me. Thanks again by the way!

Other than that nothing major yet... ...

Well yesterday was my today so...

Anyway I pulled the driver's inside door panel and installed a reinforcement for the mirror control. Looks okay but not perfect so I may end up finding another panel one of these days.

LOL, we made some of those in 3/4" thickness in 2000-2001. It barely changes the way the engine runs. You'll feel it in the imaginary-seat-of-the-pants way, but the dyno will tell you its basically the same deal.

Drove the Formula to work again today. Been driving it every day since I tuned it up, got the timing right and changed the oil - 33 miles round trip - getting 28 mpg mostly stop and go traffic. Amazes me what can happen when these cars run right! Still waiting on shocks for the XTC.

Yeah.. about the risers.... I figured the gain won't be much either but it'll come down to the way the engine is configured too. And yes they do fit under the deck lid. The block being a 3.4 P/R with a 260 cam for a little more top end I didn't want to loose my torque.... Thought they looked cool and somewhat flashy for those who actually know our engine. It's all fun....

Here's the latest for what I can do with the little time that I have with my 2 jobs

- first off - I was getting ready to throw the timing cover and water pump on and then realized they sold me the wrong one. But this is what it'll look like. I had the timing cover powder coated "red baron" to mimic the rest of the engine pieces and the water pump is powder coated clear / which came out real nice in person.... --- yeah I know it's a waterpump.. chrome 10.9 bolts to finish it off.




Here's where I am with the engine. All is torqued except the lower alternator bracket bolt. I need to finish some of the bottom now before I put the motor mount on. Engine stand here we come..

FYI - I'm going to reinstall the original fuel pressure regulator and 17lb injectors so I don't get any red flags from the smog people. especially showing the pressure gauge




Here's the sandwich adapter for the B&M temperature fan controlled that will be located in the wheel well of the passenger side and getting outside air from the stage II side scoops.




Here's what I picked up yesterday from a friend at Depot, my other job. All prep work was done buy me and my friend Eric, matched the color taking a picture box shot of the scoop that gives a value of the original code and estimates the color of the new paint for matching.... Came out real nice but I still want to see on the car. He then painted and buffed to the finish.

I left this picture big... just because. --- Banana anyone

Well on the 86 I fixed the door lock (I can now use my keys to unlock the drivers door) How nice that is!!!!. I tried to fix a wierd problem with my seats this weekend and Fiero84 agrees that it is wierd (met him this last weekend..great guy and a new friend) my drivers seat angles toward the center stack. I also stayed up late and sanded on the 87 GT getting it prepped for paint. Yes I am tryine to hord all the good Fiero's in AR as Fiero84 has stated LOL (they will be mine..yes they will).

Jess... where's a picture of yours? Eager to see before a Fieroswest get-together...


----------------------------

I just bought a set of 17# injectors $149 ---- figured to have the fuel rail stock looking for smog and run the 17# so I'm not running so rich.... I had 19# before but was using the holley regulator.

You will need your potassium to have the strength to finish you ride. Now, when are you going to install those risers? I do believe that I need to see that. My doctor says that I need more visual stimulation. The lack of sunlight up here may have detramental effects on my mind.

Edit: That engine looks astounding.

Removed alternator, then went to AutoZone to pick up new alternator which they said they had in stock…was wrong one! Headed over to O’Reilly’s to pick one up…did not have it in stock at the store but had one at the warehouse…would be delivered by 4:30PM. So I went back to pick it up…was an old one in the box…lol. Shipping one tonight from Houston will arrive tomorrow morning. On a good note I did get the new belts and a new fuel filter. So I ended up cleaning some of the engine components instead. Better luck tomorrow 

The DOHC got it's first oil change with it's new owner. I put some electrical grease on the module, coils and plug wires. I also added some washers to my makeshift ground for the coils for a better electrical connection.

Yesterday: Re-did my vacuum lines to my boost gauge so it is now seeing vaccum.

Today: Installed a new (used) dimmer transistor switch so I now have dash lights again.

Tomorrow: Hook up my manual boost controller and hope that everything cooperates.

Here's a sneak peek of those riser on the intake assembly but the plenum hasn't been powder coated yet... all original colors but it's the first time for the test fit....

I can't put it on until I'm almost done though.


------ I bought an engine stand yesterday. I need to relocate the starter, which is next, and assemble the oil pump, pick-up and the pan. Then it's replacing the 19# injectors with the 17's that came in the mail today and put back the original fuel regulator ( for smog purposes ). After that I should be ready for the harness and my new stainless steel vacuum lines

This all took place in the last 3 to 4 days. Trying to catch up. Took delivery of my corvette tail lights, camaro headlights, replacement seatbelts, and extra ecm.
Finished installing led's in my side marker lights to be hooked up to my turn signals. The original bulb will remain in its current state.

Ordered fiberglass resin and body filler that is compatible with smc plastic.

Plotted out the positioning of my custom headlight installation

Plotted out the positioning of my corvette tail lights

Sanded off 2 layers of paint on 75% of the body.

I will post pics when I find the cord to attach the digital camera to the desk top. The laptop with the card reader is dead.

I should have most of the car together next week. Unfortunately I have another camp trip this weekend (third in a row) cutting into my time getting the car ready.

I heard a funny noise while turning the corner, had the clutch in, the engine stalled.
let out the clutch, it re fired, drove for another block, heard the noise again, then my
eye's look at the fuel gauge, and I said, "aw crap", that's the fuel pump making the noise.

Was four blocks from the fuel station, turned off the a/c and held my breath while the engine
stuttered a bit. As I turned into the station, pushed the clutch in, the engine stopped, and
I coasted to the pump and stopped.

Then I remembered to breathe !! Then said, Thank you Lord !

I replaced the fuel filter and 4 inches of hard fuel line with rubber hose. Had a hole and don't want this one to burn up!

Been there done that...Even the hit the clutch and coast to the pump part. Guy on the next pump over said "Man that thing is quiet." to which I responded "Yes it is... when it's out of gas."
