Nice! The car is turning out great. F40 is one of my favourite Ferraris.

The next time I go to the shop I'll take some pics. BTW love the mirrors , I still say they would look better on your car if your car was parked in my driveway. Keep up the good work

Well its been a while since I've had her going - but finally rewired the old speedometer circuit board plus the stock odometer (just so that I can keep track of the original miles) before the new VDO to satisfy the stock ECM. Took a while but now it works great and no check engine light.

Pic of the odometer is all you can see and you can't see it unless you get down low - might paint the plastic black though

Back in the day on Ebay - have not seen them there for years (at least the ones that say "Ferrari" on them) - but did see a set maybe last year on e-bay that someone had bought and didn't need

So, how did you do this...Re-attach the old Fiero speedo connector to the harness & plug the circuit board back in? I take it you must have spliced a wire in somewhere to get a VSS signal to the VDO speedo right?

Well I went to Radio Shack as you said and got another set of 6 pin female/male wire connectors first - searched my garage next for the original speedo plug (that was fun - only one not in a pile with all the other connectors; guess i already had been looking at it awhile back and put in in a drawer and of course it was the last drawer i looked in ) - unhooked 6 pin speedo plug and wired car side 6 pin to original speedo plug - then spliced in 12V, ground, and VSS wire from those wires to six pin plug to go up to New VDO.

So did the old circuit board help at all? It sounds like the same problem as before.

It had this problem before the dash replacement - the old circuit board got rid of the code 24 (no speed signal being detected)

It was the EGR tube - broken / cracked right at the top. Ordered one from Ebay from FieroFever that I liked better than the one Fiero store is selling. Easily replaceable and it does not have a rubber core.

Now it idles at 900-1000 RPM - SWEET

So was that the source of the problem & not the speedo signal? Good to hear that was resolved.

There were 2 problems - 1. unrelated to you (cracked EGR tube) and the other 2. due to a new speedometer without original fiero speedo circuit board -

2. You need the original fiero circuit board when doing an aftermarket speedo or you will get a check engine light. Please let others doing your dash swaps and keeping the stock ECM / engine know that you will get a code if you don't run fiero speedometer circuit board before the new speedo. The ECM needs signal from the original speedo to set IAC. Just a new aftermarket speedo alone will NOT send a signal back to the ECM.

1. Cracked EGR tube = vacuum leak = high rpm + sporadic engine light

Well I took her for the last E-Check today. Next year 25 years old and no more E-checks plus I can get historic license plates. Hard to believe that I have only 24,760 original miles on it.

Well it does draw a bit of attention - just trying to take pictures yesterday was a task because 1 guy pulled up in his vette and got out to take pictures so i had to wait for him to take his pictures. Then a few groups of people came up to it and I had to wait for them. After we got home I thought I should of taken a picture of the guy taking pictures.

^ Stretched dimensions, as in one of the 3 that were from Wolfgang? Or is this a different one than he knows?

When he mentioned "stretch," that immediately should throw a red flag with F40 replicas, even if the ad does sound serious. There is only one stretch F40 body that I know of, the Wolfgang F40 replica, and that car was shot down by Ferrari after maybe three bodies were splashed. This was in the mid-'90s. This body - if one were to go up for sale - would go for way WAY more than what your average kit car body would go for. I'd say $20,000 wouldn't be a unrealistic price just for the body and everything along with it intact. You would have a chance to build one of the only accurate F40 replicas out there.

Even if there is an afterthought F40 stretch made by someone, it would require so much work and fabrication that the cost would be quite high. You're talking about potentially cutting up an F40 kit, which is already getting difficult to find, then stretching the body from scratch, which wouldn't be an easy task. Then ensuring that all somehow holds together. HTXextremes here on the forum is doing just this, but it's far from finished.



Awesome car by the way, not sure if I've posted in here before, but it is gorgeous! Do you have any high-res versions of those latest photos?

That yellow car actually looks like it could be one of the Wolfgang Shultz cars. It has the right mirrors that the Wolfgang car has, and everything else - like placement of the two little vents on the hood and the headlight doors - are all very similar to a Wolfgang kit. The only thing throwing me off is the side vents, which look very close to the rear wheels (need a good side shot)...

I also would like to say great car ferrobi, as I don't think I've commented on your thread. Your car should serve as a example for anyone building any sort of kit car. It was a lot of goodness when you first got it, and you've shown with little tweaks you can even make it better.

Thanks for the follow-up on that^

I'd have to agree with you on the quality of Ferrobi's build. His and the Delorean00's 355 are what I show my friends when they ask about turning a Fiero into a Ferrari.

I want that!

It looks like a non stretched Fiero kit refited and resized to the proper dimensions.

Well its been awhile since I have posted any pics and finally figured out the new PIP program. Whew.
I had a day off so I changed some fluids - Coolant / Oil .
Amida missed my pretty lady in the last pics so I got her in a couple shots before I covered up for the winter.
Merry Christmas to All
