87 Pontiac Fiero GT

Hi I'm Larry
I'm helping a friend completely restore a 87 Fiero. So far we have rebuilt the complete suspension using polyurerhane bushing with E-BACH springs Lowering a inch) and new shocks and struts. Up graded from 15" rim to 17" with 50 series tires. The under body is painted satin black and the suspension done in storm gray metallic. Complete brake system was replaced. Everything on the cooling system has been replaced. All of the switches and electric motors will be replaced also. Next is the engine and trans. We are going to swap out the 2.8 for a 3.4 with some modifications done to it. We hope to get about 250 plus hp out of it. Then last the paint a mild cream color with the windows tinted and he'll have a new car. The amazing thing is he is doing this all for under eight grand including the price of the car.

Have fun working your projects!

welcome to the site.

add a turbo to the 3.4 , it will run well
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.

Welcome aboard!

I suggest you install the longest-lived double platinum, triple throwdown, premium-est spark plugs in the 3.4L before you install the engine the first time!

I'm sure you know this already, but if you don't, you will know why I mention it if you install them or change them out after the engine is in.
