So I bit the bullet and picked up vortecfieros old engine on the cradle with harness nd all the goodies. just nee to buy a new turbo and pretty it up a bit. Plan is to get the engine off the cradle have it powder coated and clean up the headers change seals add new vacuum lines from hose candy and pick up a new turbo. hopefully have it ready to go or the summer. he was pushing 300+ hp and 350 fpt

Congrats! I always liked that car and that engine. I did a 4.3 CPI swap in a fiero and really liked the engine. Now that there is a LT based 4.3, I might have to try one of those!

Interesting. What are the specs on the engine? HP, Torque, PSI of Boost?

Too bad the pictures don't work. So it has a Syclone 4.3 or just a Syclone intake?

Awesome, I think my Syclone would object though if it was in my driveway

Great project! Look forward to seeing pictures!

Not actually an original syclone engine. Same 4.3 that came in them with a base 200hp and 280 fpt and he added the syclone turbo intake with modified intercooler to fit the fiero etc. He said its north of 300hp with the turbo set up , I don't know the amount of boost he was using.

It’s a swap I’ve always wanted to do. My 2014 Sierra has the new 4.3 in it and it’s quick. Would be cool to swap one of those in.
