I bought my first Fiero yesterday from a guy in Dade City Fl....I got a super clean 86 gt 117k with almost new interior and a whole trailer full of enough body parts to build another car... I've always wanted a Fiero but got the Vw bug instead as a teen... And now I have the Fiero bug and in my late 40's, and have a lot more knowledge.
I'm still learning a lot about these cars, this is how I know I have a early 86 model because it has a 4sp and not the 5sp trans... I would like to find a 5sp some day but will wait until I do a motor swap... The car has plenty of zip until you turn on the Air, then it feels like a 4 cylinder car...to remedy this problem I have plans for a nice American V8... I've only came across one video on utube that had a 5.0...short video and no motor specs or any detail about the swap.
I have a clean 5.0 EFI with all the Ford Racing goodies... Why a Ford u ask?... I'm one of those guys that just want to be different.... Everyone is doing a 4.9, Ls4 swaps and also the 3.4 and 3.8 as well as the 350 Chevy and so on...personally I'm a Ford fan...and love Mustangs and love the reving 5.0...ya and now I own a Pontiac and not a Ford right...well, I sure can't afford a Ford GT so I'll make something close that should satisfy my speed demand.
If anyone here has a link leading to info about a 5.0 swap it would be very appreciated (I couldn't find any) .... Unfortunately I spend most of my time out on the road and only get 1 week off a month so I will do my best to keep you updated on my newly found toy.
Enjoy the holidays..... 🍻
If it wasn't for bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck at all.
