Speaking of supportive, the wife started a youtube channel documenting the car and the build. This first video is more about the car then the engine swap, but since i don't have more info for it, this will have to do! https://youtu.be/5PgGZoFsGmw

My front and rear mounts are done! I used bushings from ottperforance. Made them so the axles sit perfectly straight. Got a youtube video on it, at youtube.com/lightspeedfieros Ep14
Give me your thoughts

I have fallen a little behind for a while. I wanted to try to complete the thread more, and i am awaiting any questions anyone has about the build. The car now runs and drives well supercharged. The cooling system runs backwards from the fiero, so i had to make crossover hoses on the radiator side, and reroute heater hoses drastically. OH well. We put 2000 miles on the car and it has been rock solid, however the suspension and brakes need attention now. I figure that will be soon then. I hope you enjoy these 3 episodes, Ep 20 feels like we didnt fail this project. Even if i stopped work right now, its a better fiero then any stock one i could pick up IMO. thanks guys!

New episode of #projectlsjfiero, 3000 miles on the swap, and the first breakdown! We have new hats and fall merch, as well as wideband gauges as we finish the interior! But, who is the special guest? Watch to find out! (Actually its Ronnie Finger. )

But we install an AEM WIDEBAND, and get the entire redline gauge cluster looking amazing in there.

Love the sound of that motor- seems peppy and a perfect fit for the Fiero

Would be interested in seeing results if you ever take it to a track... 0-60, 1/4 mile, etc. Great swap idea

"Peppy"... as it cooks the tread off its rear tires.

And yeah... Gotta love the SC whine.

We will be doing an autocross with it tomorrow, and then we will be doing 0-60 times and 1/4 mile with the disclaimer that i am a slow shifter and not a drag racer. Someone could do it better then me, but once we Turbo and double the power, it will be interesting to compare those numbers i think!

As for it being a perfect fit, i cant agree more. It is better balanced then any other fiero I have ever driven, this setup *should* be lighter then the duke in here, being all aluminum.
thanks for the piase!

Nice! Love the "redneck charm" of the videos.... !!! You guys have more metal in your yard than the Port of Los Angeles..... Love it!!

I have a pretty sweet 3800 SC setup with intercooler, etc. Fast and reliable. But to be honest, if I had the skills to do it, I would swap it for the engine and trans combo you are running. Just seems more "appropriate" for the size and feel of this car. Well done!

The LSJ was my first choice for an engine for my car. But when I did my swap in 2007, the cheapest one I could find with most of the stuff to make it run was 3000.00. And then I still needed the wiring harness because this was an upgrade package for a Cobalt and it did not include the main harness. Fast foreward to now and for 5000.00 I could buy a used Cobalt SS and have everything i need. But I like my 2.2 turbo ecotec so not going to happen. Thanks for the thread and videos, great job.

I spent many hours going over your threads and others before i attempted this swap. If not for you guys, this might have been much more difficult, or i may never have done it. Thank you for watching, and admiring what we have done. It has been a wild ride, and now i need to turbo swap!
