Nice ride. 8)
I had a friend that put a North Star Cadilac motor in his several years back. I think he was in a Viero club. His car got in a magazine.
I'll bet it's fun to drive :wink:

That looks scary fast......
Have you ever ran it down the track?
If so give us some numbers.

nope, I bought it 3 years ago completely stock, slaped this v8 in it, drove it for about a month on the street, had a hell of a good time, took it to the track and blew up the stock 100k mile tranny on the first run launching at 2k rpm... didn't even trip the lights on the tree, there was chunks of spider gear and oil all over the starting line, lol the track owner didn't like me very much that day. so I took it all apart made it much more professional with the diamond plate trunk and re-done most of the engine bay to show car quality and put everything back togeather to find out my tranny guy (an actual professional transmission shop) messed up and has it perminantly in reverse and refuses to fix it himself so here I am now with it sitting in my garage waiting for me to redo his work this winter....

lol, thanks for looking those up, I didnt quite expect to see somebody post links to fieros that Ive never seen before! lol, thats cool!

I have never seen that octopus fiero before, thats .... umm ... creative. I'm not really sure how much he is actually gaining by doing all those bends and welds, but I think its pretty cool.

the second one is a home page for a fiero forum that I use quite a bit. I actually really like how that person did their header design, its a little bit more concealed but still better then cast manifolds. the 4-speed has better gearing for most SBC swaps... longer 1st gear to carry the torque out but this 5-speed that I have is still the strongest manual avail which is why I chose it.

I have shorty block hugger headers on mine, Sanderson cc90s folowed by true dual 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust with flowmaster 40s. those cc90 headers are the only aftermarket headers that clear the CV axle otherwise you have to make your own or do old cast iron ramhorn exhaust manifolds.

Do yourself a favor and take that bug eye air cleaner off.

1. It's junk and starves the engine for air.

2. If it still has the filter in it and it backfires, plan on a fire.

btw... neat car.

Hey Bud,just wondering.How does your clutch/shifter linkage(?) work in your ride?What kind of 5-speed is it?

01-21-2008, 04:05 PM
thanks, I just picked up my new engine last Friday. Its the one in my new sig... professionally built 509 casting 400sbc bored .020, 3.875 stroker, all forged bottom end, 13.5-1 comp, solid roller .625 lift cam, high rpm powerband cam, etc. I cant wait to get this in there and take it down the track! how long do I have to wait for all this snow to melt? way to long. Im going to convert a holley 850 carb over to e85 and run off that also.

the shift linkage is just like a FWD car exept roughted to the back, same with the throttle cable. and there is a huge line going from the clutch master cyl all the way back to the slave cyl. no big deal though, its the same as a brake line.

oh, I am planning on getting a differant air filter for this engine, I got the bug eye for decklid clearance on my old low profile dual plane manifold I had on it before. Im not going to have a decklid on it until the car is all dialed in and then Im have to cut holes in it for a velocity stack.

Sorry about that......lol Didnt mean to rub it in.

I bet ya'll are freezing your azz off up there now, been watching them sub digits numbers on the weather channel, BURRRRRRRRR!!!
I can relate though, I lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota for three years and Its get colder than a well diggers azz there believe me and I was driving a 68 VW beetle with no heat! I remember one winter it being in the negative digits for weeks at a time, it was so cold the snout would freeze in your nose. When I first moved up there I seen all these cars with 110 plugs hanging out of there grills and I was like wtf?
Block heaters a must when it gets that cold I found out, I didn't have one on my little beetle and it had to sit and idle for about thirty minutes to warm the tranny up so I could shift it.
I couldn't wait to get back to the south, but let me tell you something, I never had to lock the door crime was non existent and I met some of the nicest people up there, not to mention all those lonely farmers daughters too.

you know you live in the wrong place where your cast iron engine block will crack because it gets so cold, lol. my emergency winter vehicle, an old 87 chev suburban has 2 block heaters, an oil pan heater, and a tranny heater for those extreme nights. :shock:

I got the new engine out of the crate and bolted on to the cradle yesterday though! wasnt too bad yesterday, the high was 1F :twisted:

tee hee, those farmers daughters makes these cold nights a whole lot hotter. :wink:
