I'm like seeing how "other" mid-engine cars have various things setup. Lotus, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche (I know its rear, but similar), etc you get the point. I'm mainly interested in seeing pictures of not commonly looked at areas like the front underhood compartments, headliner, etc but it seems hard to find pictures of these areas on the internet.

So post away (unless your saving it for a possible future modification you wanna hide lol) pictures that give you inspiration and ideas for possible future Fiero mods. Thanks

I need to get down to my neighbor's, and take a complete pictorial of his 1975 Ferrari Dino. Parked next to him at a car show, and people could not get over the similarities between the two.

I realize the following is a picture of a "one-off," custom-made, dual-plenum intake manifold for a pushrod 60o Fiero V6, but:
  • I sure would like to have one of those for my Fiero.

  • It looks to me like it was somewhat inspired by the dual-plenum engine seen under the decklids of certain mid-engine Ferraris.

That particular dual-plenum intake manifold I pictured above was a "one-off" effort which you can't buy from any vendor.

Because of that, in December 2009, I initiated a thread whose title asked the question, "Are There Any Dual-Plenum Intake Manifolds Being Manufactured for V6 Fieros?"

As far as I know, the short answer to that question, unfortunately, still is "No."

As noted in that thread, at least two vendors have looked into the idea of selling a dual-plenum intake manifold for V6 Fieros (toddshotrods, and more recently, TLG Automotive), but to date, neither has ever offered one for sale.
