Been working overtime on this fiero based f355 replica. Doing a 3800sc swap and going to try to put a genuine 355 dash in for the current owner. We made a YouTube video, but looking story short I didn't have any oil pressure because the oil pressure relief valve fell out. Now we're doing it again with a series 3 long block. I'll be posting pictures and not just video. Please watch the video and comment there or below. Hope to keep updating this thread

Here's the new motor before cleanup. 2007 gtp.



Here's what the engine compartment looks like now.



Picture of the car.
Really good replica. Frame stretch. Looks great in person.

I think it is. I have more pictures of course. The video shows it all. We got the new block cleaned up and painted yesterday. Swapped the oil pan and and lower intake. We are using the series 2 supercharger and intake for now, because it's already painted and the block didn't come with a gen 5. Hope to get it back in today. Fiero fest is looming in 8 days.

Yeah its a bummer when you do the work install the engine only to find that it is blown. Just had that happen with a 4T60e transmission on my 4.9L. Guy who sold it to me swore that trans was in good shape. Then he skipped town and was never heard from again. Had to take everything out and start over. Its a real PITA and a downer but it happens. With all the work that you have done, I'm certain that you will get it right and have a nice replicar to drive. The only thing that I would additionally check is to see if the car (without the roof) has a sufficient extra sub frame to avoid body flex.

The rebody is nice, too bad the engine compartment is not of the same caliber.

The engine swap needs a lot of cleaning, painting and organization to live up to the rest of the work on the car.
