Thank you for the kind words FieroLost!
Unfortunately we arrived there after they closed off the show so we all separated to find parking which was aways from the event. I’ll post the few pictures that I did take during the short time I was there as soon as I can upload them on the laptop.

Wow! It’s been over a year since my last update...
This one is very short.
Car still runs great and it’s still a blast to drive. I drive it at least once a month to keep things from drying up.

Yearly update!
I bought new tires since the old ones were over 12 years old. They were hardly worn with only ~4500 miles on them so I bought the sticky Michelin’s and it helped the ride immensely. I still get an off and on shake around 75-80 mph. Not sure if it’s the wheel balance or some other rotating mass. Otherwise, the car is still driving fantastic.

just blew about 3 hours reading through your entire thread!! then saw that you had just posted another update today!!! im so used to reading old dead threads it was refreshing to see i was on one that is still active. i am hoping to follow in your footsteps with a 4.6 4t80 swap in our 87 notch. im glad to see you ended up with the stock intake, they really are a marvel of engineering. Other than getting your bank to bank afrs balanced out did you notice any increase in low rpm torque with the stocker? love your build and hope to run into you some day.

Thank you jab018!
It’s starting to seem like it was a long time ago when I began this journey. I just wanted to find out if I could see the project through and have a somewhat reliable car in the end.
Regarding Russ’s ITB intake vs stock. I never got the system running well enough to get a comparison. Putting the stock intake manifold on fixed the map signal issue and it has been running great since. I really need to find a tuner with a dyno and get the fine tuning completed. I sent the ITB intake setup to forum member Will as he showed interest in trying it out. I’m not sure if he’s tinkered with it yet or not.

I wish you luck and success swapping in the 4.6. It sure makes these little cars fun to drive.

It's on the list, but I have to get my engine running first.

What state are you in?

I appreciate the offer, but I think I'm doing ok.



However, if you have a damaged '85-'88 Fiero engine wiring harness, I'll take that off your hands... I need to tear it apart to build my engine harness.
