Default newb to forum

hey guys, Ive been searching the classified ads here for a while looking for a new motor for my fiero and just recently discovered the forum, it looks like a fun place here. well, I was running a 400hp 355 with a weak bottom end but I managed to get 200hp shot nitrous through it, 125 progressively controlled pro-shot fogger first stage and 75shot plate 2nd stage. I'm still looking here for a new motor, I want to get a big nitrous shot out of it and move the power band up above 3k rpm to save the stock fiero 5-speed on launch. Im thinking a 377, 406, or slightly bigger (or another 355 if built right) for a high-rpm screamer.

anyway, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself and hopefully I can contribute advice as much as I ask for it here.

thanks, it is a fun little car. the plugs arnt as bad as you would think... actually this engine is easier then a stock v-6! theres a bunch of room from the bottom to get a rachet up there with this simple motor, a stock v6 has to much wiring and hoses jammed up there so your forced to weave your hand blindly from the top.
