Welcome to the sickness. I was like you too, "I'm going to keep it stock." That lasted all of about 2 weeks. I've have my car little over 6 months and it isn't close to the same car, that was 100% stock, that I bought. There are just to many upgrades and parts available for the Fiero. If you want to keep it stock then stay away from the "Build" pages, just to many good ideas in there.

I have an 87GT, bought new and kept stock. I bought an 88 GT in 1996 and wanted to keep it stock, but it had many issues and I gave up as keeping it stock with those issues was just too much. Easier to change engines, transmissions (now a four speed auto and a 3.4L V6) etc rather than fixing. old engines or transmissions.

Welcome to another Virginian! There are quite a few Fiero owners in your area and they get together pretty often. You can check out the page at: mayor2020.wix.com/fierosforever

I'm sure someone up that way can lend you a hand and help you get more comfortable working on the car. It's an art form sometimes. But you've come to the right place for help!

welcome aboard the nut house, only place on the net with more insane people than a state insane asylum.
For some unknown reason we can argue all day in OT but when one of us needs help on a Fiero we are all there to help.

Thanks everyone!..

Right now I'm at a stand still with this car. I have two broken waterpump bolts that needed come out. I called and spoke to two mobile welding trucks and niether of them got back to me yet. I dont have the means to drop the motor I'm working in a tiny garage. Man... IF I knew it was gonna be like this I would have paid a little more for the car and made sure the WaterPump and ALT was replaced before just so I wouldn't have to put up with this headache!
