good point Jake....and you being an established member here have much more credibility with us than a person that just joins to say that. Not saying that these guys didn't have problems with the v8archie company, but they shouldn't start getting personal about it........To me, it just destroys their whole case in my mind anyways.

File a complaint with the BBB and get a lawyer if your are not satisfied and he won't take care of you. If that doesn't work for you....... Jerry

WOW, I didn't expect to find a bunch of familiar names on here. Nice to see there are so many Fiero Nuts on here. I found this place looking for people more interested in engines and "Rat Rod" style cars, than PFF's more body mod style. Nice to see ya Jake, haven't talked to ya in a while, hows the head treating ya.

Now to the original poster. We have several guys in the local club that have done stuff with Archie, it seems like he is a good guy, that genuinely wants to make his customers happy but when something goes wrong with his parts supply, he kinda turns his back to the problem and goes on to something else and just sits back and waits. A local speed shop here was doing a ZZ383 6spd combo into an 86 Fiero / Ferrari 308 replica. It did take several months of getting parts, shipping it back, getting different parts before it was all said and done. The engine was a brand new crate motor from GM. However on the flip side, another guy ordered a master kit for a generic SBC, damn I can't remember the name of the motor. What came in the 89 ish Trans am / Corvettes, not LTI or LS1 350tpi motor. The order was made, a week later everything showed up as promised.

Its seems like he has not the specialty parts supplies down to a science yet. I think thats why you see such the wide spacing on opinions.

Now me personally, I have spoke to him before regarding a legal matter about a SOB that copied his kit and tried to sell it locally. However I have not ever done business with him. Our SBC Fiero came pre built with a 1 off conversion kit. I have a Zumalt V8 kit sitting in a large storage bin, and my 4.9 5spd V8 obviously did not require a kit.

v8-fiero

I just finished an 84 fiero v8 its a wild ride,i didnt have any problems with the Archie kit.As a matter of fact i'm planning on doing another one for my son everybody needs a hot rod.I picked up an 86 gt in Kentucky it's an automatic also.The only thing i dont like it's a little lite in the front i'm thinking about filling the spare tire with water it's just a spare don't need it but to get to tire store,and at 8# a gallon that will add some weight and maybe keep the front down.I have a 69 camaro,a 23 t-bucket with vette drive train,a v8 s10,a66 c10 supercharged short bed, and the fiero v8 is top dog driving it,it drives like a go-cart.If you are thinking about a hot rod and don't mind a little work the fiero is a blast. Thank God for all your toys and keep HotRoddin.

welcome to the Forum how much is the front end coming up? Mine will put you in your seat and lift the front end but not enough to cause problems. Remember more weight = slower car
