V8 Archie Engine Swap Installation Instructions Video - 2 VHS Tapes (Page 1/1)
fierojp APR 06, 11:13 PM

I just came across 2 unedited VHS tapes of V8 Archie going through his entire process of installing a ZZ4 V8 into my '86 Fiero GT.

This was in the late 90's. They were included with my install. I believe he later edited them down to include with his install kits. I always liked that it was my car in the video!

I later used the videos to help figure out the wiring harness when putting a Quad4 into my '88 Coupe.

Are you looking at selling them? I'm installing a used v8 kit in a few weeks.

Yes, I'm selling them.

These videos take you through step by step on the whole process.

Make sure you have a VCR lying around somewhere.

Hey Fierojp,
I’d really like to get these tapes and convert them to DVD. I emailed Archie just the other day asking about the availability of the old VHS tape instructions. I found an installation video on the web that had some really poor video quality. I received the edited VHS tape when I bought my kit from someone on eBay many years ago. But after a few household moves, I cannot find it. I think the VHS version describes better step by step instructions then the fuzzy video version. I’m in the beginning stages of re-assembly and could use more instruction.
Thanks, Tyruss.

I would also be interested in a copy.

You should consider taking them in and having them converted to dvd.
It’s fairly cheap and you could sell lots more copies.

Either way
I’m a professional engine machinist and I do lots of v8 conversions for several types of cars and this would be a great resource for me.
