Ok, the mounts look awesome and super strong but NOTHING LINES UP. I had to grind here, drilled there and then do some shimming to make them fit.
So my review on these mounts is: 2 out of 10.



Not to mention I had to wait a month to get them. Very nice customer service though.
Let see how the shifter kit fits on it, I'll let you know when I get to it!

Why waste your time with those gears?
The Saturn Aura transmission has a 4.40 final with 0.81 fifth... MUCH better ratios for racing use

Finally! After some grinding I was able to get the brackets in place!

Got the Fiero up on jackstands to start working on it!

I love how stiff the Fiero chassis is! Two jackstands at the back and the hydraulic jack on the right front and the chassis doesn't twist!

I find myself in that same situation all the time. Jack up the right side but the whole car goes up instead.

Yep, let the suspension do its thing and don;t let the chassis intervene!

I've been getting a lot of massages and emails about my 250whp 3.4L engine and Instead of writing here on the forum I found it much easier to just make a one take video episode of the description of my engine. There will be more to come. These are one take videos so some things may not be explained properly so just let me know if there is something you didn't understand. Thank you for your patience!
