BTW, I am not going to start an archie "bashing" thread because it would not be tasteful and I am above that.
I saw archie talking more smack about the 3800s
I am sorry but I have to raise the BS flag on him for that. I dared to disagree with archie and his a**-sucking followers that think he is a god
As long as people like archie continue to spew BS out on the internet, I, and others like me will be there to check his erronious statements.
Out of all the posts archie contributes, I see very little of them helping anybody but himself. Seems like that is all he cares about -- himself and the people he is taking money from.
EACH person will have thier own opinion on which engine is best, and why, but it all comes down to personal preference, Sure id like to have a v8 in one of my fiero's and id like to have a 3800 series II supercharged, AND id like to have a 3.4L TDC None of my cars have them in though, its not that one engine is better than the other, its just i have no $$ right now for a swap, Archie doesnt force people to put v8's in there cars, people take the time to look to see what engine THEY want and THEY pay archie to put it in, and if they dont wanna pay archie to put it in then they buy a kit and do it themselves with no guns pointed at them or anything, ACE and West coast fiero also sell fiero engine swap kits as well, They are not active members of this forum so no one bashes them for posting pictures of thier cars, When was the last time you seen a shop do a 3800 s/c install and post pictures of customers cars? its sure been a while for me. Ed parks does a GREAT job at the 4.9L installs, but do you see archie talking smack about them?
its not that archie is a fiero god or anything, cause im sure he doesnt see himself as one, He is just a man like the rest of us who seen that people wanted more power, (as did he) and found a way to do that and make a living off of it, Wouldnt you if you could? Archie supplies a Great product at a price people are willing to pay, in return he gets food on his plate and a couple demo cars to show off. Are you going to take the mans food away?
Evidently he does a good job at it because his garage looks pretty full, When the v8 installs slow down to the point that he cannot make the business keep going then im sure he will then look into other fiero options, but it sure looks like he is doing good right now.
ok im done ranting, BTW ive got rhree fiero's hopefully one day one will have a v8 in it (85GT 4 speed) one will have a 3800 series II supercharged (85GT automatic) and one will have a 3.4L TDC (87GT 5 speed)
for now ill be happy with whats in them.

Uh..I find that offensive, Boomer. I would appreciate it if you'd keep that off the forum. Let's act like adults here.
[SIZE=1][COLOR=Blue] Going Postal... isn't that where you decide to strive for quick, friendly, efficient customer service? It does at one Post Office near me... at the one on the other side of town it's the antonym.
I have an off post topic question for ya since you've posted the chop top pics... Did you see the post where to get the tempered glass for the chop tops? Guessing so, will that be an option offered soon?
I'll be running 17s up front and 18s in back - I have to install the new rear coilovers and take some measurements to see exactly how wide I can go. Plan on moving the rear spioler back a couple of inches and doing sidescoops similar to madcurls. I've just about settled on yellow for the paint, but might still be persuaded on blue (similar to Crazy Daves). Also going to do 13" brakes and Mr.Mikes Leather seat covers. Right know, I have to put it on the back burner until getting cleaned up from the mess from the hurricane left. Hope to have it done by next summer!
