I have decided to sell my Fiero, I have owned this one since September of 2005. I have done many things since then but have not driven it much since. I bought this after I wrecked my 85GT and swapped the drivetrain and all the suspension onto this one to make it my driver. Drove it with 2.8 for a few months then started a tear down for initially a turbo 3400 with ported iron heads. Scraped the idea after a while and decided that I would go with a turbo 3.4DOHC instead. I complete the swap in probably in 2009 but I was having clutch issues. I replaced the Quartmaster twin disc clutch setup for a simpler ClutchNet designed for Camaro. This is pretty much the WCF 9 11/16 clutch setup without paying a WCF premium. Since then I haven’t had any drivability issues. The car is probably around 85-90% done I would say. The main things that would need finished would be, most importantly tuning. I had Darth burn me a starter chip so that it runs/drives. Normal driving is perfect, WOT/ power enrich is where it gets bad, AFR’s drop extremely rich. I haven’t messed with it and I would recommend have it professionally tuned. It currently has a 3” downpipe that I fabbed up that it can follow the stock exhaust routing. It only has the downpipe, so one would need fabbed up, plenty of room to run a cat and a muffler.
The interior is far from perfect and could use some going over.
Needs a windshield.
Gas gauge is sketchy.
Needs e-cables put in. I modified the stock handle to it can clear the doorbar.
Body is kinda rough but is far from the worst I have seen, probably a 5/10, hood is boogered up and a bunch of other small issues.
With all that said, I am ready to sell. I have moved on and have no reason to keep the car. I am looking to get $5,000 OR BEST OFFER… SERIOUSLY, MAKE ME AN OFFER! Here is the mod list, most likely missing some things.
Engine: 94 3.4DOHC motor, was a jasper rebuilt when I pulled it. It was rebuilt again before I put it in the Fiero, all new bearings/seals/rings. ARP Main studs ARP rod bolts ARP headstuds Sealed power Hypereutectic pistons Reconditioned rods Balanced bottom end Ported heads, polished combustion chambers, valve spring shims 96/97 intake manifold 4 speed 3.62 trans

Other: Doug Chase 4pt roll cage with doorbars Corbeau clubman seats Zeitronics WBo2,EGT, boost/vac gauge Rodney Dickman shifter I wanted to end this by saying that I am typing this without the car in front of me so this is the best I can remember at this moment. Ask any questions and the car will be sold AS IS. It runs and drives but need what I mentioned before anyone beats on it or goes WOT. I can do test drives, I would prefer to be the driver, but if that is the deal breaker, I’m sure we can figure something out. I’m not sure how much money I have put into the car, but between the turbo,cage,seats, engine machine work is over $5000. Pictures coming later tonight with a video. I will show the initial startup after not touching the car in 3 months.
Video... First start in 3 months. Dont mind my daughter crying in the backround.
