This is the perfect Fiero engine in 2010. 312hp, lightweight, high revving, exotic sounding... FTW!



very nice exhaust sound...i like it =)

Dobey...maybe I am confused...I thought the camaro was suppose to be a performance car in the 90s maybe not. If so I stand humbly corrected.

the '10 camaro is pig heavy...but they are making improvements now which is fantastic...I like to think I'm living in the era of the return of ( modern ) american car pride.

imo these new computer systems for cars are a bad thing...ecus are nice...but they're integrated with everyhing now.

that first lotus looks very nice...alot like a lambo...i don't know why but i love those big lambo noses...Has anyone attempted to build a modern fiero on another car's chassis? yes it'd be another car under neath but it would probably perform better then the fiero ( not sure on that havn't researched ) and could be a great platform for someone's concept.

PM returned.

I'm with you, the V6 GMPP catback's I've heard sounded like total poop. In fact, to me most of the V6 exhausts have. They usually have a nasty rasp at a certain rpm range or throttle input. There are some decent ones, the MRT axle-back sounds not too far off from the Corsa, but it isn't quite as refined or sexy sounding.

Corsa borrowed two 2010 Camaros to prototype the kits from, an auto and a manual (they ended up using the same kit). In return for the borrow, they gave the two customers the final exhaust free of charge. That's good business practice!
They don't dork around like most of the other exhaust manufacturers. Every kit they design is specifically tuned for that car, so they go through much testing to get the sound they want, which is pleasing and without any rasp or interior drone.
And... It's all SS and made in the USA! I was easily sold on the exhaust note, the rest is delicious icing on the cake!

So I know this doesn't apply to a theoretical 2012 Fiero, but it shows that it wouldn't be difficult to get that sexy Euro-exotic sound from one (or even a real Fiero, heh)!

The Camaro was/is a performance car, for varying definitions of performance. But they stuck smaller engines in them to sell more to people who wanted a sports car, but with better gas mileage, and with lower insurance costs. And I'm pretty sure that Datsun didn't make anything in the 90s, since they hadn't existed for about a decade when the 3.4 F-bodies came out. Comparing a top end Nissan to a middle of the road GM, is way off base too. It's like saying the Chevy Alero is a pig, because the Honda Civic Si is so much faster.

And the advanced computer systems in cars are a great thing. Having every electronic component in a car all talking to each other makes the possibilities for tuning, that much more interesting. Especially for any car you want to take to the track every now and then, as well as drive on the street. You can completely change the way a car feels and handles, with the push of a button, to get the most out of the car. There are things I want to do with such interconnected components, that aren't being done by anyone yet.

The key to any good relationship is communication. That's especially true for powertrain management in a car.

I don't think that sound feels right for a Camaro. Just doesn't fit the car's styling.

Now, on a Fiero, with an LY7 in it, maybe the sound would fit.

The LLT just sounds weird to me, because of the DI. An LY7 with some nicely ground cams would be fun though. But that's my next project. Gotta finish the LS4 first.

Even Kia and suzuki are power in the base models. A power window motor and wiring and switches at what 25 pounds at most?? Why would you not want power windows and locks??


Is you car a stick or auto? There are many aftermarket systems that might work better for you. Check out you tube there are plenty of demos of different systems.

I found this some time ago but this thread reminded me of it. I think it is a pretty cool Fiero mock up.
