After they are painted i will put the 1/4" black honeycomb mesh in the openings. The swap moves foreward steadily and i want to thank Jimmy for providing these to the fiero community.

Your welcome and thanks for the purchase and review of the Scoops. I can't wait to see them installed. Don't forget to email me some high res pics once the car is finished.

Jim

P.S. That motor looks schweet! How much HP do you think you will have?

Update on the progress: Since we got the headers installed the only thing left to do is to take it up to West Coast Fiero so they can make up the full 3 inch exhaust for it and make the A/C lines. We still have to run the intercooler lines and mount the pump also. Progress has stopped right now because in a month i am going in for shoulder surgery. Hopefully i will be back and taking it up to west coast fiero right around the begining of the new year.

Nosrac, PBJ did my harness. We will be routing the harness as hidden as possible, the coils are going to be mounted down low where fastfieros mounts his. We are going for the cleanest look with no wires seen.

Jimmy- I will be sure to send you some high res pics when they get painted and installed. Thanks for the kind words, it keeps my motovation up and keeps me wanting to finish it. It will be dynoed after it is broke in and we are shooting for 375 WHP.

Allright everyone we trailered the car up to West Coast Fiero today!!! Chris and steve are going to work there magic on my car. There going to make up the exhaust, the ac lines, fab up a couple brackets, make the offset dogbone, and make the coolant pipe for the drivers side. All i will have to do is put some heat shielding on some wires and hoses and put the wiring harness on and the swap should be running and driving. Im so happy that this is almost done, its been 4 years since i started this 3800 swap and it almost finished. I thought i was going to beat qwikgta on the longest time to complete a swap but it looks like in the next few months it should be done.

PRFiero- The rail i am using the stock rail but very modified, it uses the stock pieces of the rail that the injectors clip into and the fuel is routed around the supercharger instead of over like stock. The write-up is here on the forum, its fairly easy to make, just takes time and you have to know how to solder. I will upgrade to the zzp rails or the prj rails when i need a adjustable fuel pressure regulator.

Odin- On paper the car should be a high 11 sec car but in the real world and since im running the getrag i dont know if i will ever take it to the dragstrip. I will get it dynoed so we will be able to theoretically see what kind of time it would do but who knows i might decide to take it to the track.

Awesome build so far. I'm curious to see how WCF runs your exhaust with the ZZP headers as I will be installing a set on my L67 swap. Look forward to more updates!

Well the car is back in my possesion now, the exhaust looks really good. I did have to cut the bottom 1/3 out of my trunk because the ZZP headers dump so far down and out. WCF used full mandrel 3 inch in and 2 1/2 dual outs. I used the quiter larger spintech muffler they offer. I would have taken some pictures when i picked it up but it was raining and sleeting so i didnt have time. All i have to purchase now is the champion radiator and the belts and then i will get the first startup on video. I lost my job a couple of months ago so next week i have an interview so the progress is slow right now. I will take some close-up pics of the exhaust when we do the first startup. Thanks Daniel

Concerning your awesome 3800SC build, I noticed it appears you simply re-used the stock 88 type alternator bracket to mount it lower, is that correct? And, where did you get the aluminum piece above it for the new idler as well as the upper engine mount to get back to the stock location. Were those custom built as well?

Okay well we are finally in the home stretch with finishing up the swap now. I just moved into our new house that has a full garage so the progress has been steady. In the last few weeks we removed the cradle one last time to wrap the headers, I bought the DEI titanium wrap which looks to be a pretty good product. I ordered the Nitto Invo tires and the new wheels are on there way. I did take pictures for the people that were asking about what it looked like. Just have to put all the heat protection on the wires and install the wiring harness and then I will video the first startup. The fuel rail is soldered not tig welded. I am using a different low mount alt bracket since I am using the 99+ alternator and the dogbone mount has been moved to the back of the head where the EGR is normally mounted. I am using the WCF mount which is very nicely made.

I may have missed it, but did you wind up going with the F40 trans? I'm starting my 3800 SC swap (gonna take a very long time, limited budget and all) and I got it with the stock automatic trans, and I've been looking at that F40 for a while, but if it's too much hassle I'd rather save the headache.

Great build, looks phenomenal.

I finally started it up for the first time today. It ran great, only minor things to get done and then it will be ready for a test ride. I am using the getrag for now and I have the brand new F40 waiting for when the getrag decides to let go.

I just saw your startup post, the car sounds good, did you need to cut the trunk out with those headers?

yes I cut the bottom 1/3 of the trunk out. As small as the trunk is on the fiero and I don't use my fiero as my daily driver so I don't even miss that little bit of space I lost.
