Hello everyone,
My name is Mike, I just joined the forum. I am a kit car guy, with lamborghini's being my favorite. In 2006 I completed a Fiero based Diablo kit. It had a TPI 350 engine with the v8 archie kit, and a 5 speed getrag. In 2011 the area where I live had major flooding, and the car was lost, it was completely under water for 3 days. I have decided that it is time to start a new build. I am currently gathering parts to do a 3800sc swap with a F40 6 speed. I bought a 85 Fiero GT with a blown engine, a wrecked Grand Prix GTP with a good engine, and a new F40 transmission. My plan is to build a lamborghini aventador replica. I will be stretching the Fiero, changing the wheel bolt pattern, installing corvette brakes, installing power steering, and widening the suspension as required. I will try to keep updates as I build, I am still gathering parts and working on the body right now.

The F40 works quite nicely with the 3800SC engine it is just a matter of making up the extra needed parts to go with it. If you need any help let me know as I have done one so far and am just starting on a second one in my own car now. Dan
