New Toy! - Oct 31, 2009

I picked up this 86 Fiero 2 weeks ago. I have 2 other fiero's but always wanted to build one with a SBC. Why build when you can buy - especially when you can buy it for less than half of what it would cost to do it yourself. Its in pretty good shape. No cancer anywhere - nice clean rustfree New Mexico car. Al the hard work is done. New suspension, new brakes, new 330hp crate motor, new clutch, fresh rebuilt Muncie 4 spd transaxle with 4:11 gears and a "locker" setup, new tires. It needs some interior works and a few cosmetic fixes on the outside. The guy i got it from got frustrated with the way it ran after he put the motor in - it ran like caca - real rich. I picked it up for cheap - obscene cheap - less than the motor alone cost cheap. Anyway, after I got it home, I started tinkering with it. Turns out that he was using the stock fuel injection Fiero fuel pump running straight into the carb. The pump had way more pressure than the carb could handle and I could watch the gas flow into the carb at an idle. It would load up in seconds. I installed a Holley 4.5 to 9 psi regulator, a pressure gauge and a filter - problem solved! Runs liked a raped ape now. Tore the interior out today and started the cleaning and painting of all the pieces. Should be a fun project.
