Okay, the Fiero horn sound has gotten to me, it sucks, it sounds like something you would find in a clown car! I want to find a horn out of a bigger car like a Firebird/Camaro, is there any problems I should be aware of in trying this? Also, I haven't found the horns yet but I haven't crawled underneath yet either. I'm assuming they will be found in front of the radiator somewhere under my bumper pad nose on my 85 SE.

The horn tones are slightly adjustable - you should be able to get a piercing two tone blast unless it's an '88 which has one tone.

There are screws protruding from the horn housing that alter the tone when turned. It's best done when the horn is sounding & while wearing earplugs.

I've adjusted several to restore the sound & added a low tone Fiero horn to my '88 to obtain two tones.

I put an air horn in our first Fiero. loved it, not that expensive really 30 bucks I think, comes with their own small electric compressor, worked great whenever anyone walked in front of me especially the girls with big hooters.

you can even get ones that play tunes now, just about anything you want from the dukes of hazard to Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.

I did put a Buick full size set in our 86 SE we have now. any bone yard set will work.

I always replace my small car horns with some junkyard ones. My best was a set of old corvette horns for a miata- it sounded like a train! In my Honda, I just spliced an old Cadillac horn in addition to the small stock one. The final product is the most disgusting, attention grabbing sound I couldve asked for

If I remember correctly, Fierosound ?, replaced his horn with an OEM unit from a DeLorean, and he liked the sound and volume. See link below:

Good luck in your search.

Let us all know what you finally wind up with.
