I have test run the engine on it's cradle and made a few changes. I am running Holley Pro Jection rather than stock injection and have it working with nothing but a 12 volt feed. Runs and sounds great. I am still going over all your pictues and have re-printed many of them for references.

Thank you once again for taking so much time to document and point out the problems for those of us who are not quite as adept.


No problem, the holley system sounds interesting with less headaches - good luck with your build!

Looking forward to the Fiero cruise tomorrow - since the weather is going to be great, the Roadster is planned to make the tour along the Grand River to Port Colborne.
Here's a couple more shots from the beach in Port Colborne this week:





See you guys Sunday at Mapleview

The Roadster project is posted for sale as I am still out of work.
If anyone knows someone willing to take it to a good home, send me a PM.

Well the Roadster was picked up today and will live on in nearby Hamilton, Ontario.
The new owner is friends with a local club member, so I hope to see the project continue to progress.

Cheers,

Nice hearing from the "experts" on my youtube channel commenting on something I actually built...and no my N* Fiero is not any faster

nitro in a fiero... bad combo

FredthePhag (1 year ago)
just another slow sbc fiero idling in the driveway. SLOW!

w41duvernay (1 month ago)
So, you think the LT1 engine and the 4spd
auto tranny makes this slow? Don't think so.

Cletusbuildsjunk (1 month ago)
v8 archie, AKA knucledragging loser, installed an lt1 with the factory 5 spd manual tranny and ran high 13's at a measly 102 mph. You think going to a slushbox automatic is going to make it faster? LOL this is probably a low 14 second car off the spray, and a high 12 on the kit!! What a joke!!!
There is a reason there are no track vids of this car. Just look at the qtr mile times of the sbc swaps here on youtube. they all run high 13's!!

w41duvernay (1 month ago)
I've heard of N* running 12 sec time in the fiero. It's not impossible

Cletusbuildsjunk (1 month ago)
A northstar motor is NOT an iron turd bucket small block chevy!! Thts why the northstar can run 12's.

w41duvernay (1 month ago)
A small block could run the same If someone can actually figure out who to make a decent exhaust system for the system. No 1 seems to spend the $ & the time to make a wrap around header system.

Cletusbuildsjunk (1 month ago)
yea they could, but they don't. The iron duke could run it too but you don't see any iron dukes doing it. its a bad motor swap. The people that do them are old knuckledragging neanderthals who think a v8 with a carb means big horsepower when its the opposite because they put on a shitty exhaust, and don't tune the car. Dynos just cost too much money for a v8 owner after spending $9k just to get the motor in the car. 3500 crate motor, 3500 install kit, and several thousand for small stuff.

Happy to report the Roadster is doing well with a new ECM and is currently living up the road in Hamilton area.
I have been promised first right of refusal next time it goes up for sale.

I heard that the roadster may be back on the market soon.
I hope it finds a new owner that will finish it to their taste and drive it...

I used a V8 Archie kit which takes away most of the fab work.
Depending how much you spend on a ECM, swap kit or parts to do it yourself (given you have a motor), I would guess you'll invest $2,500-$3,000 to have a decent V8 Fiero.

Happy to report that the Roadster did find a new owner and hopefully I'll see it on the road again someday.
