Hey everyone, i just recently sheared my timing gears on my 87 fiero with the iron duke. so i was reasearching and the easiest way to replace them is pull the motor basically. so instead it has 170,500 miles on the motor and has massive Blow-By, like so bad a half quart of oil is in the air cleaner housing after a week. so im doing a rebuild but i want to do a performance rebuild. am i going to be able to bore and stroke the stock block and find pistons and rings and crank and cam to make all this possible. also if not is a 3800 supercharged from a grand prix gtp a direct swap and if so whats all needed to do so. such as ecm, fuel pump, and other parts. thanks any help would be awesome.

the duke is a week motor, some guys here have built them for power but im not sure it lasted long.

3800sc is the way to go, all you need is mounts ECM fuel pump and wire it up. and there cheep!

darkhorizon or one of them guys might chime in as they know alot more then i do.
