Many forum posts about engine swaps referred to FieroAddiction(.com), which is no longer active. I reached out to RockCrawl directly and was granted permission to resurrect the site content. It is available on my website for now, until I can get "FieroAddiction(.com)" transferred over to me. I've reformatted the site to be mobile-friendly, but have not changed the actual procedures or technical information. Here is the link: http://www.nathanbittinger.com/fieroaddiction/

Good call!

I was pulling bits of info when needed via the Internet Archive's "Wayback Machine" ...this is a much better method!

Looking for Fiero posters?

Yep, I used the Internet Way Back Machine to grab all of the original content, got permission from RockCrawl, and modified the formatting.

I'm glad you guys find it useful! I'm working with another old, but highly-referenced, site to do the same thing for another resource that has been lost - more to come.

Thank you! I am going to put his turbo N* up for sale and this information will help a lot. I'm cutting back on my Fiero collection.

Jon (Rockcrawl) was an excellent designer, mechanic and fabricator of swap parts. He came on real strong in the late 1990's doing a 4.9L , 3800, N* , 3400 swaps and a kit car. After a couple of years he faded out of the hobby as fast as he came into it. It was good of him to share his swap tips and web content with us. The last Fiero that he owned was a N* turbo Fiero. Jon may still have that car but I haven't seen him at the PA shows in years.

Missed it. I guess that Jon sold everything Fiero related.
I find it odd that someone who was so interested and involved in this hobby would make an exit from it after two years. Jon was a good guy that contributed much to the Fiero community and gladly shared his knowledge of projects. I guess that Jon changed his lifestyle, interests and moved on. Its great to hear that the Fiero Addiction web material will be back online. You add this to what Ryan at Sinister has done (another great guy IMO) and you will have a virtual swap guide covering 3800SC, Ls4, and 4.9L swaps.

It's great to see some of his work back online. Jon's a great guy and friend who has helped out many for a longer period of time than many may have realized. We all move on to new and different things as we get older. I was out of fieros for quite some time and just last year i gave it one more try. Stopped over at Jon's place and he laughed and said thought you were done with those too. In any case glad to see some of that info back up.

I've got a PDF of IRM's old Quad 4 installation manual, if you want to add it to the site.
Since IRM is long gone, I'm guessing it's now "public domain".

If you want it, and I don't see your response, here, please shoot me a PM.

Pretty sure it's not public domain (the author hasn't been dead for 70 years I'm sure). Does it state a copyright on it? I'm guessing it doesn't. Was any of the property/rights sold off over the years? I know Arraut has a lineage through multiple owners and names, was IRM in the mix any where?
