I never got the whole thing with tint over lights. Just seems to me to negate the whole pupose of the light. If i'm making a turn or braking i want people to see every bit of my indicators.

Goyal99 -

The front clip was messed up from an accident when i bought the car so i bought a new one from CustomCoachCraft in Texas before he sold his operation to Pat Kalsmith. Mera type front clip. I also bought a new front bumber from Rodney Dickman and a set of used 5 star rims that where made in Australia. I just want to fix her up and sell it when done. I might start a seperate thread on this as i have many questions -

1 being that the front is a little crooked 1" higher on left side where accident happened

Thanks for the update...

I was actually looking for an authentic copy of a 308/328 front clip, not the distorted Mera copy....I also send you a PM aquiring about the wheels and F40 engine plexy you had (still have?) for sale...Let me know if you still have them.

Can't make Carlisle this year. Maybe in '07

I am thinking of putting in a V8 and would like some ideas / pics from you guys.

Since the engine can be seen through lexan cover I want something that looks good too.

I like the intake on the LT5 but that thing is heavy and rare.

I think a Northstar or LS1 might look the best in there, an LT1 looks cool, but really are too common and known to help pass the Ferrari image. Deffenantly dont do a carbuerator if your looking to impress people through the lexan since that look is a bit dated, and they dont looked centered in the fiero bay.

northstar engine
LS1
This images is larger than 100K. Click to view. LT1 swap
TPI 350

A DOHC LQ1 would really fill up the engine bay, but would behave very differently than the V8, less power but a much longer rev range, no hot rod thrump sound but a porsche-like whine.

I wonder why he went with 6 exhaust pipes. Especially with a v8, lil confused. I think it looks better with the traditional center exhaust pipes

Why have you decided against a Northstar?
Just felt like saying a SBC isn't going to be cheap, neither will a Northstar. The northstar revs higher, and doesn't require a adapter plate. But the SBC has aftermarket support up the whazzo.

Personally I think a high-reving motor would be the best for a this car, It will help support the spirit of the F40, which has a twin turbo V8 redlining at around 8,000rpms. Thats is why I think a northstar is the closest thing GM has that everyone knows can go in a Fiero.

Another neat looking swap is the Allante 4.5/4.9, Id expect the slightly lower performance than the 3.4 DOHC, but with v8 roar more torque and much less revs. the intakes on the allante and 3.4DOHC really help fill up the bay, and with the rear hatch window a full engine bay would really spice things up.

Yea the LT5 is heavy, rare, and I hear unreliable, not to mention huge. Would it even fit in the engine bay? No one has doen it yet that I know of.
Most twin cam v8's and v6's tend to be on the heavy side however. but the amount of revs that can be pulled out of them is the fun part.

FieroWannabe - No particular reason but I have decided that the Northstar isn't what I want. And if things turn out the way I plan I'm going to have a engine cover replicated from a Ferrari that will cover any signs of whats underneath.

You have such a ncie car, how come you're using a rod to hold the rear deck up/open ? Isn't it made to accomodate struts of some kind ?

I am trying to keep everything like the original car had which was a 2 piece metal rod. Plus I am not to sure about gas struts pushing on fiberglass all the time when closed.

The struts would also make access to engine even more difficult. I like to come in on the sides.

Awesome looking!

Usually Ferrari kits looks odd with the tires, with odd wheel base, but yours look great to me! An Archie V8 would certainly make a huge difference. Hope you get to make that mod soon.

If you could offset the tires a little I think that would add to the original look - but now I'm just being finicky. Someone else pointed this out on the firs page of the thread.

Are you going to be at D7? Would really enjoy a close look then, if possible.

I am starting to think about wheel spacers. Couple things though - first the added stress on bearings not huge deal but what about the front. If I put spacers on front it will rub more than it does now when you make a tight turn. We'll see maybe in future. Total suspension upgrade is what i'd like to do some day - coilovers, konis, wide track, new rims with diff offsets - u know big bucks

What's D7
