fiero v8

I was just reading some of your post and came across someone doing a fiero v8 swap and talking about v8 archies putting the swap.I dont know them but i talked to someone there about buying the adaptor plates for my fiero,if i was not going to do the swap myself i would not be worried about letting them do it for me.You may have to spend more money but if thats all thats between you and your hotrod you can always make more money,it cost about 100 dollars to take my girlfriend to a nice restaurant and the movies,if i wanted to save money for a project i would feed her a peanut butter and jelley sandwich and take her to look at the stars with the top down for a couple months,then use that 2500 dollars for my projects,if you do this be smart and dont tell her what you are doing ,she will just think you are being romantic then you get points with her and cash for project.It works just dont tell on yourself.Im not cheap i just like hotrods

Welcome
So do you have a Fiero now or are you still in the planing period?
The reason I ask is its always a good idea to shake down the car before you start modifying it. Fieros are now over 20 years old and things are going to need replaced.
Mine had 150000 on the car when I started working on it. I haven't been putting 100% into it so its taking a lot of time to finish. Brakes and other small things had to be fixed first.
I have about 3000 miles on the swap now and have some small things to fix but nothing I cant handle.
Archie does good work, you get what you ask for.

My kit was used, paid $1000 for it and the motor. I moved it from the car it was installed in to my GT
