If you use windows, open up windows movie maker, and Just shink the filmstrip to the desired length... (If I recall correctly) and it will play faster... It is either that, or you add the effect... Anyways it is really simple and all windows computers should have this program.

Edit: Woot page 2 :]

Time to post some pics from yesterday. The video will need to be edited and posted. I'm short on time now, so hopefully some time later this week.

Here is what is completed after day 1.

Engine is removed and engine bay is prepped and painted satin black. Normally, I remove the wiring harness with the engine, but because I need to modify it, I left it in the engine bay. We installed the solid cradle bushings and the bump steer kit. It took longer than expected to install the kit, but no biggie.
The engine and transmission were degreased and painted. The poly engine mounts were installed. We lost a few hours to repair the atrocious install of the swap. They thought it was easier to drill the cradle with a torch and we couldn't get any of the mounts to line up. They also cut the original engine mount bracket off and moved it closer to the front of the cradle. We had to reconstruct the cradle on that side and make it useable again.
I rebuilt the passenger side axle with new cv joints. I don't like aftermarket axles because the joints are much smaller than the original Fiero axles.
The clutch was replaced. It looked like a stock valeo clutch that was installed. The valve covers were painted.
Here are some pics....

The original exhaust manifold


Lunch.....


The list....


we found a lot of wasp nests all over the car...




















the end of the day......

I can vouch for doing this also. The only problem is little tiny pieces of fiberglass will be all over the first few miles of driving no matter what. We painted (rather soaked with paint) the fiberglass and torched the inside for it to bake and this still happened.

Um... i have a question... Why not just make a battery box in the trunk if you were going to shorten it anyway? Less wiring and it's out of the way.

Something like here... Insulate and access panel it.

Texas wasp nests...wonder how those got there? Oh I remember...because my car sat at someone's house in northern Texas for 3 1/2 years instead of being worked on. Thanks for cleaning up the mess Dave!

Probably so there isn't a visible battery to be an eyesore... also it takes more weight from the back and moves it to the front for a better distribution of weight (as little as it may be lol...)

It is funny you say that....I just ordered this pipe a few weeks ago....still waiting for it to arrive.

http://macqueenpipes.com/agaricus.aspx

Yesterday, around 4:45pm we found one of the rear strut mounting plates was egg shaped. Luckily, the Fiero Store's UPS cutoff was made and we will have the new one in our hands sometime this morning. Today, I plan to port the blower case and modify the wiring harness. Ryan plans to finish up the intercooler plumbing install and fabricate the rest of the exhaust. We'll play it by ear for the rest of the day.

Here is our list of setbacks.....quite common on any Fiero swap. When I say setback, I mean a problem that wasn't expected.

Monday setback....
The engine mounts didn't line up with the cradle because the cradle was cut and welded for the front engine mount bracket. We had to fabricate a way to use the stock Fiero poly mounts and keep the drivetrain straight.

Tuesday setback.....
Found strut mounts egg shaped not allowing us to assemble the rear coil overs on schedule.
Found ignition coils to have excessive corrosion on the secondary poles. Had to order new ignition coils





Wednesday setback......
Found the blower snout bearings to sound like sandpaper. Also, the snount shaft was cracked and previously welded, but starting to crack again. I had a spare snout shaft in stock and pressed new bearings onto it for this snout.

Here is a better pic. The funky crap they use to hang garage doors is not from us, but from whoever put on the F355 bumper.



We are tired.....the engine is in....



Tomorrow, we plan to finish the exhaust, wiring harness, front suspension, tune the pcm, run the plumbing for the fuel, radiator, and intercooler, weld in the new dog bone support, and fabricate some ignition wires.

Dave, can you come up with a superior mounting method for my fog lamps? I hope the people that did the original swap are reading this and taking note on how it's supposed to be done!

Here's how my car looked back in 2003 (pre-swap)

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

After the swap in 2004.


Seats from Mr. Mikes....took me some time....and a great deal of grip strength to do them...whew!


Wasn't too difficult doing the interior....ok...maybe it was...


This was the most fun part (calibrating the speedo)!


I didn't like the plain 11 1/4 Chrysler rotors so I installed these slotted and crossdrilled rotors. With all the power Dave's going to give my car I may have to upgrade to the 12" Brembo setup or the Wilwood 13" kit.

Here's what it looked like the day I shipped it to Loyde in July 2007




December 3, 2010 1/4 mile from Loyde's house after the rescue mission!



I spent over 2 weeks cleaning stuff out. Thought I would find some "critters" in the trunk. Did find evidence something was there.



My guess is these were this way because when I reclaimed my car during the initial inspection...the battery cover had been removed and was in the trunk. No telling how long it had been that way.

As you can all see from the pics Dave has been posting Team Guru has been going "balls to the walls" to make my car "right".

Hard to imagine they have gone from this on Monday morning....





...to this today!


Can't wait to see the videos Dave and what my car sounds like when you fire it up!

You guys ROCK!!!

First off, great work Dave. Can't wait to see if you make your 5 day window.

Charlie64, who did the previous swap prior to taking your car to Loyde's? I am sure you don't want to turn this post into a flame war but if you had problems with the previous installer, then some of us who have swaps in mind for the future would like to know who to avoid.

What was wrong with your car prior to taking it to Loyde's? It looked pretty good (the car not so much the engine) and I am guessing it ran...or maybe not.

Thanks for the compliments. We hit a major setback today. The wiring harness needs much more modifications to look show quality than I had expected. I've been working on it since 9am and still have many hours to go. I should have looked a little closer at it on our initial evaluation....it isn't hacked up or really a problem. Whoever designed the harness left all the automatic trans wiring and all the not needed wiring still in the harness. I also route my harness different to make it look cleaner, so rather than just reloomig and routing, I am basically building a new harness.

Mud dauber (sometimes called "dirt dauber," "dirt digger," "dirt dobber," "dirt diver", or "mud wasp") is a name commonly applied to a number of wasps from either the family Sphecidae or Crabronidae that build their nests from mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mud_dauber

Yeah, they're cool, and very docile. Won't sting unless you really work hard to piss them off.

The rescue of this ride is looking good, can't wait to see it done! Is it going to get new paint as well?

end of the day on Day 4...









The rear bumper is back on....we removed it to TIG weld the entire exhaust so that there are no parts that are not stainless steel....also a cleaner weld....the 3 wasp nests were removed from there as well. The wiring harness is completed. Tomorrow we still have a lot to do, but should still have it done by the end of the day....hopefully

The car had little quirks in the rear suspension and I was looking for more power than a stock configuration. Check your PMs about the other info.

Also, I drove the car from IL to VA....had an overheating issue which was solved with a 4 core radiator from V8Archie. Drove the car from VA to FLW, MO for a course I attended in 2005. No issues. Sent you a PM regarding the other question.

Mud dauber (sometimes called "dirt dauber," "dirt digger," "dirt dobber," "dirt diver", or "mud wasp") is a name commonly applied to a number of wasps from either the family Sphecidae or Crabronidae that build their nests from mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mud_dauber

Yeah, they're cool, and very docile. Won't sting unless you really work hard to piss them off.

The rescue of this ride is looking good, can't wait to see it done! Is it going to get new paint as well?[/QUOTE]

That's also in the works Jazz. Going to stick with black.

Once again, great work Dave, can't wait to see the video of the test drive and hear the exhaust note.

I'm going to bring my wife's HD camcorder when I go up in a mere 15 days....but not like I'm counting Too bad I don't have an iPhone. I'd stream the video to youtube!

Bought her the camera for Christmas. She bought me a blender for making margaritas. Who were we really shopping for????

Look on the bright side Dave. This Dave was micro-soldering 36-40 AWG all day long today. 100 connections per item and got 6 done today. My eyes hurt and i bet yours does too. Snooze!

I didn't need to solder any of the wires. They were too long, so I cut them and repinned them with new pcm terminals.
II'm getting ready for our final day....hoping everything goes as planned.
