If you are interested in photos of a larger engine installed in a Fiero, here is a 383 stroker with fuel injection installed in a 1988 Mera.

@dobey and jscott1

I find centripetal force much more stimulating. That's why I build my cars to handle. Power is secondary.

at 22:10 of this video, you'll see me pass a much faster than me WRX in turn 3/4 until my fender rubbed my 315mm wide tire:



Running 300# springs...guess I'll have to switch to 350# on the right side of the car...

I agree. Don't get me wrong, I love motorsports as much as the next person, but I personally don't feel the need to build a race car, but again, that's just me. Not to rain on anyone else's parade though. I would love to have an LS powered Fiero, just because it's an awesome powerplant, but unless and until I can do the swap myself, it won't happen.

Your video is a great example of why I am lengthening the wheelbase of my fiero.
Do you know if anyone talked about this subject of moving the front wheels forward? If not I will take some pictures and start a new thread.

Archie moved the front suspension on the Muira build forward several inches:
