no just data loging and din't need any more info so just let off for third gear .
ok have found some info on intake air temp wit roots style supercharger and it said 13 to 14 degrees of heat rise fro evey pound of boost so 13 x 16.9= 219.7 degrees addwd to the ambiant air temp so if you start with 60 degree air then add 219.7 it is 279.7 degrees so i now know my water / methonal kit is working due to the temp out side was 50 and 219.7 i should have seen 269.7 but with the water / methanol injection i saw a 160 degree temp so that is 109 degrees lower that is good news

It was me, and ear buds is how I heard it. Glad it was useful info because it would seriously suck to have a simple issue cause a problem. You don't hear it o the 4th gear shift where you lay off the pedal.

kinda funny now after when this car was first conceived years ago when we where talking about a longitudinal V8 Fiero and i thought i could do it and there where those who said i could never do it without streching it or i just would not do it at all i can now say you doubter now need to go eat Crow LOL . I thought i would also add thanks to all of you who stood by me and gave me good ideas and even a kick in the back side when needed .

i do have to say after looking at my car i think i still like the look of a fiero gt body better but since my wheel and tire combo i dont think will work with the stock body and i like Archie's wide body kit and would love to do that and maybe i will if i make enough money as the shop should pick up with tire changes .

There's a guy on the facebook group that did a flared-fendered formula fastback. Kinda like an old school rolled fender. Subtle, but nice, and enough to let you run some wide tires. Might check that out.

That photo of the red car last posted looks quite unappealing. The rear doesn't fit the front.It would need a stretch to look properly proportioned.

I'm revisiting my initial assessment, maybe it's the tires and wheel well gap that makes it look more odd?

I know this is all very subjective, but in my opinion your car looks great from the front of the doors to the back of the car, including the current custom rear roof line. I feel that installing the GT fastback (chopped or not) would be a mistake... but yes, I realize it's not my car.
