Your back burner stays hotter than most people's regular stove when it comes to modding vehicles.

Glad to see that this car is still in your skilled hands.

LOL. Just a helping hand one day sanding the fiero will be cool. The wife's dog would just eat the puppy or the kitten. We did downsize a couple cars this weekend we got rid of the wife's Obama car and my Government Motors truck for a new F150 4X4. I wanted a 302 Boss but Gianina said the dog would fit in the F150 better and we could tow the Fiero if needed so I lost.

Supposed to be mid August. Not sure what the plan is yet but I will let you know when there are some solid details. We are going to be trying to swap the trans out on Becca's 84 this weekend or else I might try to make it to that gun show. I have been wanting a 1911 for a while.

Well there was a little progress made this weekend. Talking with Michael he decided to get the engine swap done before finishing the body. Here are a few pictures I took but he will probably post some more that he took. Yesterday we removed the 2.8/auto to make room for the LS4.

(Edit, moved my pictures to later in thread)

Ben and Becca came over this weekend to help take out the 2.8 in Gianina's Fiero. Last shot of the 2.8 in the car.



Rear clip off to ease take out



Ben getting down and dirty



I don’t think he notice the black widow webs I just told Ben I was to fat to get under it.



Me looking like I was helping.



Don’t forget your sunglasses on this one.



Good shot of the front of the car. I think we were napping here.

After this we got the engine and trans off of the cradle so it can get modified for the new mounts.

I think Revin has something like this. Might help working in your garage in the warm weather.

I started on the cradle today





Everything looked good and strait.




Had to cut the front mount off





Looks like a good 88 exhaust system



Had to run a few spiders out of their home.








When alone you have to come up with all kind of help.



This is as much as I got done will try to get some more done tomorrow'

Excellent. Becca with a shotgun?

Here is a picture of the front fascia that you used to make the mold on 7-23-11. I got it from Tom Slick a few months back.


Cleaned and repainted.

I'm done for the weekend heading back to SA. This is what I did and it does not look like a lot but this LS4 is huge. I found out it uses every once of cradle and then some. It was a hot and tiring last two days. Ben your shades are here they are on the table.








Here is were I had to cut out for the oil filter.

I got hit with a few other issues also and had to trim more of the cradle is a couple other places. I also had to make a front bracket that I did not have so I did not get to finish getting the engine mounted. I will have to finish at another time.















Checking the level







At 8pm last night I said I'm done. I started on the bracket I need to make but did not finish it. I wanted to but I was too tired.

Looking good Mike, if it were any bigger you might need a shoe horn to get it back into the car. After we get Becca's car on the road we will plan a trip down there to help with whatever is left if you haven't finished lol Thanks for finding my glasses, I did the same thing the previous week and left a brand new pair at my brothers.

It is a tight fit on the Pass side of the car but there is plenty of open room on the DRV side above the trans. I had to move the Pass side frame rail in some to clear the low mount Atl setup I came up with along with a brake line.

Working on the front mount again taking a lot of time.





I have to cut the bolt off it hits the axel.



Getting ready for first test fit. I was hoping with the kit it would just be done but I still have a lotof work to do.

Finding out the alt bracket has to be removed it hits the strut tower.

Edit to add (will move it up front) trying to get a day to go work on it. Gotta go to Houston next week. I will see if JScott wants to meet for dinner and visit if he can.

You can flip the Alt mount if your motor came with the stock Alt and use it as a low mount. The lower frame rail will have to be moved in for it to work though. Or you can take the route of using a smaller Alt and coming up with a low mount setup. Using a 99 up 3800 Alt works well as this is what Don K. used on his build and it worked out great. The rear pipe is very close to the firewall so some good insulation will be needed to keep that heat off it. The Pass hinge might have to be removed depending on the height of ur setup and the coolant fill cap. Also the rear pulley on the water housing setup will hit the firewall if not moved in on the setup. I used a smaller pulley plus I moved in the firewall a bit to gain the needed clearance. All in all the setup is a very tight fit and will be a ***** to work on it anything goes wrong...

The rear pipe is very close to the firewall so some good insulation will be needed to keep that heat off it. The Pass hinge might have to be removed depending on the height of ur setup and the coolant fill cap. Also the rear pulley on the water housing setup will hit the firewall if not moved in on the setup. I used a smaller pulley plus I moved in the firewall a bit to gain the needed clearance. All in all the setup is a very tight fit and will be a ***** to work on it anything goes wrong...


I was hoping I could use the Fiero Alt and the Fiero AC but Sadly I had to remove the Fiero AC. I did not get any accessories with the Engine. Feel free to post pictures of what you are describing if you want. I was even thinking of a little stretch to make more room in the engine bay.

Would be a shame to stretch it after you have the ass end dialed in like it is. But nothing a little glass work can't straighten out.

I will have to see after I gut the engine bay. Just need another good weekend to make the trip down.
