This is a view into our award winning 86 Fiero GT. We own 4 Fiero's, an 88 Formula, 87 GT, 85 GT. This is our Fiero we show most offen but it's not a trailer queen, it does get driven. As with most toys it's never done and always changing.
Body Mods:, Well I started with raised rear wing stands, ribbed vented 1/4 panels, lambo doors, shaved outside door handles and tinted sail panels all covered in a monotone PPG 2004 GM Laser Met Blue paint job.
Trailer Hitch: One of ther body mods that always gets the looks is my own designed hide-a-way trailer hitch that hides behind the license plate. I use it to tow my small custom trailer to the car shows. The trunk is way to small in the fiero to hold cleaning products or travel needs.
Engine: This Fiero had to have some power so I started with a warmed over 5.7 350 ZZ4 Small block Chevy V8 with Edelbrock Proflo multi-point fuel injection. For a little eye candy I added lots of chrome and some 2 stage candy apple red and blue over silver sparkle powder coating to the engine and transmission.
Clutch and Trans: I did run a spec 3+ clutch feeding into a 5 speed manual transmission. We now run a 4t65E automatic transmission to handle the power, broke the last 5 speed last year at the track.
Exhaust: I let it breath through a set of mirror finish polished stainless steel Sanderson headers flowing into a custom mandrel bent 2.5" exhaust. A pair of magnaflow round stainless mufflers try to quiet this beast down while the exahust flows out a pair of dual bright sparkling Corsa stainless dual tips.. It sounds so sweet and trust me, it turns the heads....
Suspension: We did some more up grades to the rear last year. the photo to the right shows the rear bump stop kit from Held Motorsports that we ran in it's early life. Now we have swapped in a late model 88 rear cradle & suspension and a nice fat front & rear swaybar for the twisty roads keep it flat. I like a lot more than the early bump stop kit.
Rear Coilovers: I like them low so I put this one down a little over 3" with dropped front spindles, cut stock front springs , rear adjustable coilovers.
Now that this car looks great and quite quick and to help slow it down I run 12" corvette brakes all around rolling on 18's.
For a set of shoes I had to have a set of DAVAJ Ronin 18X7.5 Chrome wheels. I wraped the chrome babies with Yokohama ES100 225/40WR18 up front and 245/40WR18 at the rear. Very nice feels great, just don't let them get in the snow. I had to move the car, I pulled it out onto flat ground with snow, it had do be pushed back in by hand. All that power and a no go... We were laughing so hard could hardly push it in.
So now it goes, handles, looks great and stops what else..... Oh how about the inside...
Interior mods.. How about Black and silver for color. While driving I can watch all the details on the custom blue digital gauge panel or play with the onboard car pc with a 10" touchscreen monitor mounted in the center console.
Car Computer: Now on my pc, well its a 2ghz Jetway with 1 meg of ram memory. It runs my full navagation, heating and a/c system, stereo, tons of mp3's, cell phone, internet and has wifi, bluetooth, and anything else I can through at it. Interface comes through a 10" touch screen, a large spinning mouse knob and a custom touch panel.
We are planning a full work over on the interior the winter, lots of changes coming and it should turn out off the chart cool.
Stereo... Onboard pc for the head unit flowing into infinity amps out to Infinity seperates but not the subs...
Subwoofers: For subs I run 2 Blaupunkt ODw1200 12" flat saucer subwoofers. Lot's of power so I can hear it over the engine and exhaust if I want too.
I get a lot of looks while driving and parked and one of the questions is how fast... well I dont know... it's fast tripple digits are not a problem... I've had faster and slower... I just don't beat on it, just play with it a little.....
I hope this sparks some thoughts for your own ride.
I will update this with more photo's as time allows.
