Wow I am so sick of Covid Bs and the weather in NH as i wait for the closing on my place in FL . I have all sorts of things I have put on my plate like my Mirage kit car and my newly attained Dually never mind moving all my stuff to the new house and work needed on the house . I am hoping to enjoy allot of time in the fiero in FL even though it is about 75 percent done .

Let us know when you are settled in. There are a few of us in Ocala (myself and Lou Breslow) as well as Larry Hubbert (in New Port Richey). We should try to get together. Welcome to sunny Florida! If I can help with any info you need, drop me a PM and I'll help if I can!

Today i brought the engine block to my friend who is a Automotive Machinist and traded him some things for boring cylinders, installing cam Bearings & cleaning the block this is for a My Manta Mirage it will be 428 CI Ls iron block engine. The Fiero is just waiting for me to do work on it as i have driven it but with the moving and all the things i need to do the are ahead of all my projects i don't see any of them getting any love right now as i go through all my stuff and decide what to move and what to just get rid of .

I saw this thread over on LS1tech and thought of you. I think earlier in this thread there were discussions around using the B7 transmission, so it was cool to see one actually being used.

But with an AWD transaxle like that, moving all the torque through 2wd by nodding it, would that even stand up to the increase?

I know you aren't going that route. There's a guy on YouTube who has completed putting a V10 in his 1995 Audi wagon. He's been beating on the car pretty hard, awd.

I know they convert Subaru trans but not sure how strong the shaft is on the Audi transmission as I believe it has a shaft within a hollow shaft like a Subaru

Well yesterday I started down to my place in FL with my fiero in tow but just before I got to Springfield MA the truck radiator was leaking pretty good so i had to turn around and limp it back to my Dads . I checked it out and it is leaking along the seam where the core hooks to the plastic tank so I ordered a new one and have to wait until Wednesday . I can see that the filler in the car has shrunk or something as there are lines and such where it looks like the stuff sunk in making you really able to see all the places of where things are joined together

Amen. Let's do it. I'm near Daytona, and if I'm not travelling over Thanksgiving, I'll be at the Turkey Rod Run at Daytona Speedway.

Thanks, but like you, I've given up on Fieros. Was hoping you'd post pics so others on here who might be interested could get a look-see. I sold my Formula a few months ago, but I still pop in here once in a while to see what's going on. Still love the cars, just can't get in them anymore!

Okay I thought you were interested but thanks for trying to help me but if anybody else is interested I am in the Ocala area of Florida so if you live around Ocala and you're interested I can drive the car to a location and you can take a look at it never mind just look at pictures you can actually look at the car here it run even probably take it for a test drive if you can get in it with chop top in the roll cage makes it pretty hard to get into
