I just recently returned from a trip to New Zealand where I was treated to a jet boat ride up a river. Guess what was under the engine hatch?



They sounded great the ride was a blast, complete with spin outs and hugging the rock walls at 50 mph.

Hmm instead of posting where it should or shouldn't be/bla bla ill say that is a really cool setup! Plus might give a good idea on a twin setup in a fiero.

To be honest, I've never been to the OT section, I thought it was for the crazy flamers.

If it isn't Fiero related it should be in OT section, what you posted may have been what you thought cool, no way could it even be entertained as a Fiero possibility. This section is: General Fiero Chat, if someone doesn't say something, pretty soon you have a bunch of non-related Fiero posts messing this section up.

Somewhere, I saw a picture of an LSX engine with two M90 superchargers next to each of the valve covers.

Where was this boat? Setup looks like maybe Kawerau Jet? If so, they were running dual SBCs but the 3800SCs were significantly cheaper to replace in the event of a failure.

Motecs? He spent more on engine management than I planned on putting down on my house!

I dont think there are any ready made marine exhausts for them either. Pretty sweet project.

Hey Dustin... did you see this fiero I found on craigslist? Here's a thread.
I also found this 1989 Fiero on ebay with power steering. Here's a thread.



oh... let me not forgot the newly insightful... "which is better? v8 or 3800sc?..."
or the ever wonderful... "what color to paint my car/which wheels on my car..."

wow... I have been here too long. Sorry cc350 for the threadjack... justin made me laugh and I like to acknowledge greatness.

Cool ! I saw the Shotover Jet in action when I was in NZ several years ago...pretty impressive stunts !

Now if they want more power out of these dual sc 3.8's they could add a set of ZZP like intercoolers and make them water/riverwater cooled

[sarcasm]

OMG!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING POSTING THIS IN HERE WHERE PEOPLE WHO GIVE A DAMN MIGHT SEE IT??? This thread does not belong here, it belongs in O/T smack in the middle of 1000 political threads.

[/sarcasm]

Seriously sweet setup. Thanks for posting it where I also would see it.

I know right. I know that there are new members on here and it is all new to them.
I just think its neat to see something like that. And it is Fiero related. I have one of those in my Fiero.
Anyway, its Cliffs decision not anyone elses.

Edited for stupid mistakes.

I used to think that you were a pretty good guy, you even gave me some good advice in the past. Now you are just showing you a$$. Whats with that? I believed you were beyond anything trivial like that.
Are you having a bad day Cali?
I hope the rest of your day turns out better.

Sorry about the post cc...
