Once my "new" fiero motor goes...which of these shoudl i put in it?

Mind you this car is like 2500lbs, i could put a stock 3800 in it and make the car run high 13's or low 14's, or 3800 SC and make it run solid 13's. Or put an Ls1 or Lt1 in there and make it flatazz HAUL. But the only prob with the v8 is i still wont get the mpg, i wouldnt mind keeping my mpg around high 20's or 30ish like it is now. FYI its a 4speed manual. hmm what to do what to do.

Man you're really wanting to go far with this Fiero ...Nothing wrong with that .I saw one on eBay one time with an LS1 I believe.Pretty awesome.You could go with an LT1 or LS1 and hook it to a 6-Speed perhaps and get some mileage..Well..Put some miles in between you and your past anyway !!Just kidding.It'll be bad though..Trust me.

Good idea Rubberman..You might want to get the ring before you get the Fiero.That way..You'll have that out of the way and the rest of your money'll go in your 'lil project .
