What about louvres instead of side windows to vent the engine compartment?

If the louvre angle were correct they would not create a blind spot, or at least not much greater than the stock windows.

I like the clip, but there's always areas of improvement.

So far, so good and w/o any issues regardless of the weather condition- sun, rain, sleet, or snow. If it works for real exotics then we shouldn't have any issues.

Yesterday FieroBoBo picked up the 1st LS376-480 Fiero ever built & he drove it back home to NJ.

Here's a few shots of it.

Oh, he got home about 2:00 this afternoon (his time).

He said he enjoyed the trip & it would do 95 on an entrance ramp in 2nd gear or something like that.

He stayed over someplace in PA for about 6 hours, otherwise drove straight thru.

He said he got 22 or 23 MPG with the 5 speed.

He said he was going to go to sleep to catch up on his rest.

Bob's CIA goes into the area in front of the wheel well liner by going thru the sheet metal in the same area as the original V-6 intake.



Troy's had to go thru higher because the Oil Tank for the Dry Sump oiling system kept us from being able to route it that low.

Both CIA's are 4" Diameter & both use a KN RC-3600 aircleaner.

I don't have any pics of Bob's aircleaner thru the vent but you can see it & it sets right at the back of the rocker vent.

You are so right about this. There is a thin line between having fun and pure insanity, and I'm teetering on the edge with this car.
The 480hp LS3 engine is almost too much power to be easy to drive on the street as a daily driver. The acceleration of the car is simply breathtaking. And at idle, the engine sounds a little like a caged beast, just snarling to be set free. I punched the accelerator hard in 3rd gear getting on the Route 80 somewhere in Ohio, or PA, and before I knew it I was doing 95mph. Simply awesome.

I think I'm going to like my "new" car. Thanks Archie, Rob, and Chris.

HC, Thanks for the compliment on the car, Archie and crew did a great job.
The tires are 225/50-16 up front, 245/50-16 on the rear.
The wheels, (front & back), are 16x7 BBS RG-F wheels with a +48mm offset, that I got from the Tire Rack.
I'm hoping to replace the rear tires with 275/40-17 and run 17x9", or 17x9.5" rear wheel that will match the fronts.

Well, I made it home in one piece, and I've caught up on my sleep. I'm not a kid any more, and I just can't run 24 hours straight with out paying a price.

Any how, the car is awesome. The acceleration is breathtaking. Best of all is that the car feels smooth, stable, and predictable at speed. The car is very comfortable and easy to drive at highway speeds.

The only draw back is the front spoiler. It is simply too low for the mean streets of Jersey. I'm planning to take it off tomorrow because it grounds pretty hard as I'm pulling into my driveway. I shudder to think what would happen on the speed bumps in the parking lot where I work. In retrospect I should have told Archie that I needed at least 6"- 7" of ground clearance. (My mistake, not his.) The worst of it is that I really don't want to take the spoiler off, the car look so good with it on. But if I don't it will be destroyed with in 2 weeks, (at the most).

Other than that, I just have to get used to the new clutch and the new engine, with all that power.
It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

I took mine off (had one when i bought it). I think it looks better without it, but then again you have the matching rockers. Either you take the spoiler off or you get a whaletail!

Let me know if you want to get rid of your rims.

Sorry, but my son wants the rims for his Fiero.
The rims are forged, they weigh only 12.6lb, and they cost $469 new @ the Tire Rack.

Hey, Fierobobo. Please take a Coke can picture (before and after) prior to removing the front spoiler and post the pics on the Coke can thread. I'd like to see how-high your car sits.

Thanks.

Thanks Archie for the info. No need to reinvent the wheel- I'll use the same items that Fierobobo and Troy used.

Thanks. Curley.

Damn, Curley. You must be psychic.

One of the first things I did when I got home was take a few pictures of the car including the front spoiler, with the can of Coke, (as a visual aid). As it turned out the Coke can would not fit under the front spoiler.
I took the spoiler off today, Thursday, 2/10/09. I'll be heading down to our shore house for the weekend so no pictures for a few days but I will get the pictures for you.

Hehe. Here's the linkie http://www.fiero.nl/forum/F...1/HTML/071143-2.html

Oh yeah, any comments from your neighbors? Judging by the outside visuals- do they think the car is same-as before? I'm guessing the neighhbors can now here you coming from around the block, right?

How do you know how much wider you have to go with tires on an engine swap? Is it trial and error, or is there some formula that calculates increased weight over an axle, and requirements for increased tire (thread) with?

It's something that always puzzled me.


That engine looks beautiful in there. (We Californians are totally jealous (not SMOG legal here. ) )

If you want to keep the same handling characteristics the formula is:
new weight over axle / old weight over axle = X
X x current tire width = new equalized tire width

For instance, your Fiero weighs 2650 lbs. with a 46/54 weight distribution. So weight on rear axle is 1431 lbs. If you do a V8 swap and add 75 lbs your new rear axle weight is 1506. 1506/1431=1.052 If you want to maintain the same handling characteristics, and your now running 215 mm wide tires on the rear then: 215x1.052=226 So your new tire width in the rear should be 225 mm.
Any other factors changed like heavier springs, stiffer shocks, adding a sway bar, stiffer sway bar, wider tires in the front, using taller tires, lowering the car, changing the weight in the front, camber/toe adjusments, tire pressure, and even a big brake conversion would change the formula dramatically.

As a general rule of thumb: wider is better, and if the car oversteers you'll want softer rear suspension with a larger tire contact patch (or vice versa stiffer front w/ reduced tire contact patch) And if the car understeers (rear tends to push front through a corner) then you'll want to do the opposite.

If you really want to understand handling characteristics of a car, here's a good start http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Car_handling it explains the understeer/oversteer correction process better.

I'm not really changing much, just fixing a few age and wear related problems. Also putting coil-overs on the back.

I'd like to finish my chop top this year & finish my GT40.

The restoration of the GBCT is going very well.

As you know the GBCT was chopped a bit differently than the chops after that. Rob Kris are pretty fussy in just about everything thay do, so we decided to upgrade the chop on the GBCT to current levels.

We also figured it would be better to start with a new rear clip & roof panel rather than to remodify the old parts so we're doing that too.

Here's some pics.
