This is my 1985 Pontiac Fiero. Page 2 and 3 shows the car as it looks as of 2-20-05 The stock 2.5L 4 cylinder was scrapped in favor of a 1998 Supercharged 3800 V-6 from a GrandPrix GTP. Even with street tires and its 4t65E auto tranny, the car is capable of mid to low 12 sec quarter mile times. With drag radials the car does 11's.
I painted the car myself. The wheels are 17 inch Ceterline IMPULSE. they are made of lightweight forged aluminum and weigh only 11 pounds each. The car runs on Nitto extreme tires.
I drive the car everyday and race it jus about every Friday nite at Maryland International raceway. The car was featured in High Performance Pontiac magazine a few years back in one of their ShootOuts.
Heres the engine when i first did the trans plant. And here it is now.
Its a 98 3800 Supercharged GM motor. The transplant is probably one of the easiest. I could duplicate this car for around 6000 dollars. The mods to the otherwise stock motor are...2.8 pulley, ZZP 1.9 rocker arms,XP cam, ZZPerformance Intercooler, PRJ Fuel Rails, ZZP Stage 2 Throttlebody and DHP reprogrammed PCM with adjustable timing.
Recently I replaced the coupe bumper covers with GT covers and lower ground effects. I am REAL pleased with the change.
