1988 Fiero GT 5-speed with supercharged 3.8 V6 conversion. This is not a "quick and dirty" backyard swap. It is a professional job performed by Sinister Performance in Fort Wayne, IN. Conversion was done in 2007 using a zero-mileage dyno engine (used for factory replacements). Fewer than 10K miles since conversion.

There are far too many upgrades to list, so email me at gregkellogg1@yahoo.com if you'd like the conversion build sheet ($8500 price tag). As for the car, it has around 140K miles but is spectacularly clean. Many suspension upgrades and 5Zigen wheels with BF Goodrich tires (approx. 60% tread). Paint is 7.5/10, leather interior is 9/10 with brand new headliner. Late model Pontiac CD/radio and top-shelf Polk speakers installed (great sound).

This is an incredible car, especially if you're in the market for a Fiero conversion. Needs nothing. Belonged to my late father. It's heartbreaking to sell but I need the space/funds to finish his '66 Corvair project. Also, this is my dad's Pennock account as I could not register with my Yahoo address. Please email gregkellogg1@yahoo.com with questions and do not send PMs to this account. Pictures of the car and conversion can be found here

I haven't seen enough of these swaps to accurately value this car, so I will entertain offers for now. Vehicle is located in Ridgway, CO. Sorry, but I will only entertain U.S. sales.

Thanks,

Greg Kellogg

8/29 Edit: As mentioned below, I have not been actively trying to sell the car all summer. After some offers and feedback I'm now asking $10K but will entertain other serious offers. Just had the car inspected and oil changed this week. It is ready to go and will NOT disappoint. -Greg

I looked thru the pics. That's a very nice car.
Good luck with your sale.

Although I never talked with your dad I'm sorry to hear about his passing.

Thanks for the comments, guys. A couple of things I forgot to mention: Battery tray was relocated to front underneath spare tire. Premium Optimum battery with trickle charger lead and new spare. Unfortunately I don't have photos of that at the moment. Also, my dad had about $2K in fuel system upgrades done last year with new high capacity fuel pump, regulator, and some other things. I can find more about that if anybody is interested. Lastly, the front clip and hood were professionally resprayed last year and match the rest of the car perfectly.

I posted a couple more swap pictures on the Photobucket site, and here is a link to the PDF build sheet since I've had many requests for it.

I see the bill states he was in Michigan, but after I looked at the Pics, I see the car is in CO. Nice car. I bought a similar- kind of - car back in FEB. I wished I would have waited. But come to think of it, this car would be out of my price range.

Yeah, Ryan did the build before my parents moved to Colorado. They lived in Brighton, MI. My dad's screen name means Dr. A.B.S. Michigan (he was an anti-lock brake engineer at GM before retiring). Actually, come to think of it, he purchased the donor vehicle close to Hickory Corners in West Michigan.

Looks like it's "medium red" but I could be wrong.

Yes, still available. I have not been actively trying to sell since my original post. Just this week the car was looked over (by the best mechanic on Colorado's Western Slope!) and oil changed.

SOLD!

Back in October, actually. Forgot to amend this posting until an onslaught of interest recently. Selling price on eBay was $10,500 for those of you following conversion prices.

Wow! I don't think I've seen a stock bodied swapped Fiero go for that high, maybe they're finally starting to go up in value. I know on CL all I see is junkers or mediocre cars with insane asking prices for the last 2 years. Congrats on the sale!

Thanks - the auction shot up to $8-9K pretty early on, and then a flurry of action at the very end brought it to $10.5K. It went to a very nice dentist in southern Alabama who had owned another 3800 conversion that he wasn't happy with. He has since informed me that he's over the moon with this car, so Ryan at Sinister can stick another feather in his hat.
