Hey Skitime,

I enjoyed the write-up on your Fiero. Truely amazing! I think I have found the engine swap for me. Hint the username. I have a few questions though. O.K. I have four questions.

1. On the flywheel, how much material was taken off?
2. Why the use of a 95 Bonneville computer?
3. How did you delete the automatic transmission program from the computer?
4. I notice the Fiero speedo on the manual transmission, in one of the photos. Is it actually wired and operating the Bonneville computer?

Thanks,
Don

Thanks for the compliment. Answers:

1. I took the Camaro flywheel along with the Fiero flywheel and told the machinist to make the Camaro flywheel to match the distance from the crank surface to the flywheel surface of the Fiero flywheel. I never knew how much that actually was.

2. I had a friend that was great at reprogramming the 95 ECM which allowed me to eliminate the code crap not needed like the automatic trans stuff and the passkey, rev limiter, speed limiter. He custom burnt fuel maps for the car after taking readings while driving too.

3. See #2

4. The 95 Bonneville ECM actually does not need the speedo info except to turn on a light to tell you to change oil. I am running the speedo like it was stock but tapping off to feed the ECM. Seems to work just fine that way. When the meter is connected to the ECM the speed is reading about 1/4 the actual speed.

4 hours of my life have now slipped away (12am-4am).. thank you!! NO reallllly Thank you!! I think i even passed out a few times only to dream about my car with your mods! I remember chatting for a while at the 20th and really giving your car a good look over (only the rebodys got more time then your car) And even then I had no clue as to all you put into it (brake work, intercooler and cooling, the diff lighting effects I thought it was just strobes and under neon and so uch more) Well I'd love to say more and ask all sorts of questions but I've already punched the backspace way to many times in one post.. sleep now.. and thank you.

PS. it's your cars video as you leave the 20th that made me decide to dump my N* project in favor of the 3800SC!! what a sound.. so much more befitting for a Ferrari clone

------------------

Ferrari 308 GTB rebody on a modified 86SE chasis Soon to have a highly hooped up 3800SC..Ohh yeah baby!!

Hey Eric you up still also

Ski's, JScotts and California Kids cars are the primary inspiration behind my GT. I have those threads on thier cars bookmarked so if I need a sudden dose of motivation, there it is.

Going with the 3.8S/C, cool I thought you would after the other night here at my house. I was talking with Tim (tesmith66) at lunch last Thuesday about engines(not my strong suit), about the 3.8 S/C and a 5.7 because I couldn't make up my mind. So what does Tim say, "buy another car and build one of each" LOL. Tim's got me thinking 4.9 now, but I don't know enough about the engine yet to decide. Close to straight bolt up from what I'm hearing, but it has a couple of short falls that I won't go into here.

Sorry for rambling all, I tend to do that.

Later

Earl

I know that that they completely changed the susupension for 88 but have you thought about impoving that in any way? Just curious because your car would look even meaner 1' lower.

BTW...YOUR CAR ROCKS!!!!

Great looking car and mods - Enjoy it in good health!

I know you've written so much already on just about every mod on your car....But can you possibly expand on what materials you used to create the window opening on top of the engine lid??? Is it plexiglass or something stronger?? How did you created the molding around the cover?? Everyone loves the visual effect of the glorious engine bay.

Ski, I've been eyeballin' those trans am vents that you put into the front fenders and I'd like to get more info on how to do that. You used I think SMC? how is that for smoothing seams and keeping it flexible? I'm putting some Thunderbird turbo hoodscoops on my hood, should I be using this for adheisive, then Fiberglass filler to smoothing it? should I mount it from the backside? I'm up for a breif education, or a new thread?

yeah, and this is a bump for a GREAT thread.

Yes I used SMC two part epoxy urethane body repair material. I used that for the bonding then used flexible body filler for the smoothing out of the surfaces. The SMC sands well. I mounted it from the backside of the fender and created a new front surface edge. Thanks for the thread bump. I worry this will go into the archives.

The engine window has been a tranformation. It has been made about 5 times with 4 different materials. I found the only material that is a long term solution is custom made tempered glass. Not cheap but the best. The fiberglass edge was filed into a curve.

Maybe the Auburn show but it would be a long shot since we are going away in the motorhome for 4 weeks in July.

I love the way the 88 rides and handles. With the neons and spoiler barely clearing my driveway and many curb ramps it would seem foolish to lower it. The new hood makes the car "mean" looking enough. lol

Well, I have been busy with non-Fiero projects all winter. My poor Fiero was neglected. So it is time to work on the Fiero again. Especially since Carlisle is next week. I just finished reinstalling the hood and front fenders after having them repainted. Last summer my motorcycle fell over and cracked the left fender. Nobody was near the motorcycle and it was a week before the 20th show. The hood did not suit me so it was reworked and the right fender had a spot where the paint got mysteriously cracked about the size of a quarter. So with all that repaired, I wanted to at least add one new mod. About a year ago FieroGT87 was advertising embroidery Fiero emblems for shirts, hats, sweats and jackets.

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum4/HTML/013886.html

I contacted him about an idea I had and asked him to keep it between us. I really appreciated that he did because I am sure everyone will want this mod. I just like being the first. Well after I first communicated with him, I was suppose to get in contact with Rodney Dickman and order new beechwood speaker cloth and send it to FieroGT87. Somehow I never got around to it. One day FieroGT87 said he had a package being sent to me. Low and behold he ordered the beechwood speaker cloth and embroidered the emblems for me as a favor. What a nice thing to do. I really appreciated it and never expected it. Pennocks people are the best! Well his work is awesome with great detail. Today I finally got around to installing them. Wow, do I love them. We want to do it immediately to our other 88GT. So the rest of you get in line. So here are pics of the results.


First shot shows my old faded speaker cover along side the new cover. Man were they faded. Funny how you donít realize how faded they get.

How do you think i can get a hold of him cause i seriously want a set of those speaker covers with the emblem on it? Heres a free bump for you to keep it alive

I have always admired your car, but never knew how much work was behind it. This is a great thread, once I started reading I just couldn't stop reading til' the end, and it was a great 3 hour read trust me, I loved every minute. A side note though, what is your rim/tire combo? I recently got 205/40/R17's and when I put them on it seemed like there was waaay too much space between the wheel and the wheelwell, your stance looks great and w/o a lowering kit too, I'm dying to know ur combo . Also, are you going to be at Wheatstock, would love to see the car in person.

Thank you so very much for this thread .

Thanks for the comments. Now the questions. I have 205/50/17s on the front so I retain the great steering over the earlier Fieros and I have 235/45/17s on the rear. The rear tires are burned off since the intercooler so I will be getting wider tires in the rear soon. With the spoiler and neons underneath it would be dumb to lower the car. I can barely get in my driveway now. Besides I love the ride of the 88s and don't want to hurt it. We will not be attending Wheatstock. Sorry

Cool. If you let me know which picture you are using I could probably send you a high resolution version of it if I took the picture. Email me the pic so I know which one it is.

Hi Dave, I saw that your thread had floated back to the top.
I was wondering how the transmission was doing? Al

Well, I got the new transmission mounted on the engine today. (Taking 4 weeks vacation has slowed the process) I got to do an update to this tread to cover this.

A new transmission?? What happened to the old one? You didn't decide to come to the Darkside and install an auto?

No, I got to add the story to the thread but in short my pressure plate came apart and broke a hole into the transmission bell housing. I got a replacement Getrag I am putting in.
