I can't get over the fact that the stock vacuum canister on my 85 GT looks just like a 1980's Hi-C can. I actually thought someone made a makeshift vacuum canister from a coffee can or something. But I find this was factory. Wow. Just don't look right.

It's frequently referred to as the juice can. It's about the same size, and I believe a while back, someone used a juice can to transfer the valve from an original canister.

I have not used it on a fiero, but the chevy g-vans have a nice plastic round ball type one I've swapped to a few vehicles over the years whose cans rusted out or there was no longer space for the original. They only have one port though iirc, there was a ford that looked the same but had two ports.

I used a pineapple juice can for a short while, I cut the top off my old one to use the vacuum valve. It snapped right into the bracket. I ended up buying a new one from TFS which included a new check valve. In typical fashion, the TFS mounting bracket broke the first time I tried to mount it.
