    well been an on going project since I was 17.. now 22 goin on 23. Just finished up the swap this year mid September.

    car came equipped with a 2.8... it was ok for power at the time I guess.. [email protected] for the 1/4. After researching and riding in a slightly modded GTP Grand Prix I flipped and was like DAMN! here's the pics and stats. Haven't had a time to hit up the the track but the cars roughly 2700 lbs and pushing 280-300 RWHP :big grin: after I get the ECM more fine tuned I should be hitting low to mid 12's :)

    Intense 1.9 Aluminum Rockers
    West Coast Fiero 3800 Headers ceramic coated
    160 Degree drilled t-stat
    Spec stage 3 clutch
    Thrasher 3.25 push on SC pulley
    Adjustable Fuel Regulator
    Throttle body spacer
    NGK TR6's
    CAI w/ K&N[
    Custom ECM memcal reprogrammed
    100% polly suspension

    Mod's to come

    yeah.. well should say my dad the majority of it I helped out as much as I could.

    the wiring for the engine to the ECM was done custom, that darn stuff was confusing as ever and I wasn't going to even attempt it.

    overall think it fits the car awesome.. 15's just didn't agree with me wanted 13's could've had that stock, but once I bought the motor I decided to go mod crazy

    Heheh... that's nice, but I like the Northstar powered Fieros more! :p

    Northstar powered MR2s are even better (yes, I can say that now!!! HAHAHAHA!!! *evil grin*)... ;)
