I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue parts car that I picked up to fix another totaled one. Was staring at the engine the other night and thinking that would bolt in the fiero just like the 3.8 or any of the other gm v6's. Its a LX5 or (shortstar) V6, same engine family as the Northstar, but in my opinion a much better built and designed motor. Pushing 215Hp and 230 lbs torque, that would be a huge improvement over the stock 2.8. I drove a intrigue for a year and found it has a lot of torque and defiantly gets up and goes at full accel. In a heads up run it stayed beside my buddys Regal GS supercharged. From as much as I know about those cars, wiring wouldn't be any different than doing a 3.8 and mounting wouldn't be too difficult, shares a motor mount that the 3100 and 3400 series use. And if people are doing a northstar swap this motor should fit no problem.
I am looking to do something different than other people, I have been planning on doing the L67 swap but everyone has done that, so why not something else. Opinions? comments?
