Found it. Volvo B8444S engine.

Sounds good on paper. Not much of a chance of my coming a cross a working one in my price range. (We don't have junkyards everywhere selling anything and everything cheap like you guys south of the border)

Uhg, too many options for engines for this and for my fiero...can't decide which way to go with either. Every time I think I've made up my mind, I eventually end up undecided again. Options suck!

Fiero options:
1. 50+ MPG build. ~100hp. Have the necessary parts. Great for cruising all day long, but not a lot of get up and go on the highway.
2. Finish V6 engine swap. 4-speed(already together) or 5-speed(need parts).
3. One of each. (Use my "parts" car for one of them). Don't really have room to keep a third card though.
4. #2 with a bunch of extra HP and better gas mileage(but not the MPGs of #1).

Corvette options:
1. Lightweight as possible build. 200hp, zippy little V6. Make body as light weight as possible as well.
2. 300 lbs heavier version of #1, with more power and better gas mileage.
3. Say screw it to light weight and drop in some variant of a SBC.
4. Turn it in to an electric 1/4 mile car.

Option #5 for all of them:
Insure them all and light 'em on fire.

PS: I was originally leaning towards #1 on both. Gas prices dropping made me reconsider my options.
