good day Archie,
17 years ago I did a 350 conversion on my 84 SE using your Deluxe Kit with the Centerforce Clutch and Flywheel and the 4 core radiator.
At that time the only mechanical experience I had was attempting to rebuild a brake caliper on my 79 Datsun 280zx. (key word being "attempting" lol)
I had help from two very good friends but for the most part I did it on my own. I think the worst part was the wait, cause I couldnt get it all done in one day.
Seriously it took me two days of cursing and screaming just to get the tranny mated to the engine lol
All in all it took me around 6 months to complete, losing 25 pounds in the process but ending up with one of the most satisfying things Ive ever done.

Sadly she sat for 9 years (moving, divorce, child custody, life..) and has suffered but I am determined to revive her. She actually still runs which is amazing all in itself, but to me it is worth it to tackle even with all the mocking comments and horror stories from the casual unknowledgeables that happen to opine, to me its an icon that deserves surviving.

Good to hear you are still in this, I got a battery tray from you a few years ago but Im pretty sure I'll be needing a few bits once I begin the teardown.

Stay hydrated out there

On top of this forum, another great place for V8 Fiero info is https://www.facebook.com/groups/v8Fieros/ (Archie is a member) as well dropping Archie an email directly. (I actually just spoke to him this morning about my 6.0 LS install in my 87GT) If you need his email address drop me a PM and I'll send it off to you. IIRC That V8 Fiero's group has a few members in Florida too.

Nope, located in Las Vegas now. Still selling V-8 kits & a few other parts like the WideBody kits.

Went from a 3 man shop to a one man operation. So don't build the customs like we used to do. But I am doing 3 or 4 V-8 swaps a year out here.

Thanks

With as many cars and engine swaps happen here, what are the odds someone has a spare V6 front engine bracket they could part with?
I'm dropping a 3400LA1 into an '84 2m4 and can't find an engine bracket. The donor vehicle bracket doesn't work, and neither does the Iron duke's bracket.

You should try posting this in “The Mall” section of the forum. More likely for someone to see it there. And I’m positive someone has a mount. Lots of people on here with lots of parts. You should also try the Fiero group on Facebook. A lot of active users over there.

Are you still using PIP? There is now an "upload image" button on the bottom of the page when you post. You can directly upload without PIP.

You're right, it has been a long time. But I'd still do it again.

Made a lot of good friends along the way.

Archie!

I hope all is well with you.

Good to see you still around. The rad you got me it's still working out great. I haven't driven mine in almost 10 years and I'm ALMOST ready to get her back on the road (redoing the 3800 harness, cleaning up etc).

Maybe one day I'll get to test drive a V8 Fiero😉

Take care!
