This is just a thread to put your wildest imaginations for everyone to read, nothing more, nothing less.
Here, I'll start.

What would a fiero handle like if I were to cram in a luxury sedan's suspension, with All Wheel Drive?

Again? (this is NOT a new idea)

The luxury sedan will probably be a FRONT mounted engine and the powertrain won't fit the Fiero anyway.

To make this idea work, the ideal AWD powertrain swap for a Fiero would come from a mid-engine AWD car - so you may as well drive THAT.

Hey man, I did say stupid ideas. There was one guy who crammed in an audi 4.2, so it could be done.

The real difficulty with installing AWD in the Fiero is that almost everything with AWD is Front engine.......and it isn't as easy as flipping the trany and installing it in the back.....Where would you put the gas tank?

My (Crazy) idea would be to take a (Basically) stock Fiero, install an LS4 pumped up to 500 HP, with a cryo-treated 5 spd, 88 rear suspension but an early chassis (More durable front bearings, more room in the engine bay), get some spool-valve shocks and tune the crap out of the suspension/Brakes/etc....Then have someone with talent (Not me!) drive it around the Ring and set a very good lap time......after which, I would like to try installing 2 high-powered electric fans in the decklid vents- with a battery to power them during turns - and use a large generator to re-charge during deccel...Of course, add some skirting....and lay an even better lap time.......Yes, I am the Loose nut behind the wheel of my Fiero!

The AWD Fieros that exist usually look like this...
