As subject says please keep me in mind should you decide to sell your well modded Fiero. I wont lie, I plan to strip the Fiero of its well built drivetrain and every other bolt I can use in my 87 Zimmer Quicksilver. I just missed out on one in Detroit that I should have pulled the trigger on a week ago, so I decided to make this post.

Thanks!

I have a 2003 GTP L67/MN7 with 111k mi. FS, $1200. Runs good, has body damage, salvage title. No need to hack up a finished Fiero.

Sounds to me like he dont want to do a swap and have to engineer anything. He wants to just have a plug and play thats already done. I like the same thing sometimes. When my SuperBee needed an engine, I bought a Chrysler out of a museum that was just a pull and bolt it in job. All I had to modify was the front exhaust header pipe on one side between manifold and front pipe. It was a 4 hour job to pull both and install the new one from radiator thru transmission.

With the availability of swap harnesses, swap mounts, alternator brackets, and other parts, swaps can become almost a plug and play job.

It would be helpful to know his location. I've been thinking about selling mine and buying a stock engined car so I wouldn't have to bump up so many classes in SCCA.

I am not just interested in an engine swap, I plan on transferring everything over/into the Zimmer.

I am located in Nebraska, however I have a truck or if the vehicle is roadworthy I can fly in and drive it away.

I've got a car that I would sell, 3800sc, 4 speed. Part of why I consider it a turd is the person who did the swap basically did a hack job. He chopped out the doggone mount which I had to rebuild, cut the trunk out and didn't repair it, hacked in some exhaust to go around the shift cables, blown out mufflers, etc. I've been working of fixing the issues but some like the trunk either can't be fixed or I just don't have the time/skill/motivation to fix.

I might just yank the drivetrain and swap it into another nicer Fiero.
