    Some of the 355 kits require only a 3 inch stretch, which can be done on a Fiero by drilling holes 3 inches back from the OEM shock tower bolts.

    That said, I don't think cutting the car in half is that big a deal, as long as you take careful measurements and make sure the welds are strong. After all, a car starts out at the factory as flat pieces of sheet metal, bent and welded together just the same.

    By moving the tower, you are changing the entire lower suspension points as well. I wouldn't think it possible to only move the top alone. Seems to me that would be a more critical type of modification than the stretch.

    If you are referring to the MR2 Stretch.....It's not a difficult process. Looks far more intimidating than it really is.
    Keep dreaming if you want to, I'm building mine!
