There is no such thing as a 3.8 Fiero, at least not from the factory. I doubt they're common enough to come up with a nickname like that.

I think that is a cool nickname...But what do I know- I drive a Fiero, for gosh-sakes!

I always thought it would be cool to make an actual competitive Fiero for Silver state challenge/Spectre 341 Challenge/ Ultimate street car challenge with a LS7 and call it the Group 7 which was the designation for the Can Am cars...Either "Fiero Group 7" or maybe the "Hulki Group 7".....

Hey- Check it out; My Jet boat has a Ford 460 which is slightly over-bored.....It's a 2 gallon engine.......It does tend to blow the 4 cylinder crowd's minds when I say it's 7.7 liters, tho.....

I thought about that one day when I was standing at the john, and read. "3.8 liters per flush".

Gallon Fieros in Canada would have 4.5 litre engines.

Patrick....I was makin' a joke; Canadians supposedly always say "Eh?".....And a Canadian 1 (Imperial) Gallon Fiero would use either a Cadillac 4.5 V8 or a 4.3 V6 over-bored....

Sure, but it was posted as a question... so I answered it. Seriously though, many people don't realize that there are two different sized "gallon" measurements, so I took the opportunity to clarify the issue.

Not to be confused with the similar, yet slightly different, Pontiac Schooner.
