    If you still want to go with the V8 plan. Archie is the one to go threw. I've used his kit and loved it. Each car is different so there may be some small mods you'll have to do but you'll like it .

    must admit i am a total petrol head and love v8s and would sway towards putting one in.but that is a valid point about the fuel bill, with our ever rising prices over here.but hey it will sound bloody lovely even if i cant afford to take it off the garden!!

    Ummm.... I think you heard wrong. They can be done, and do bolt up (with some mods) to the stock trans, but they are anything but easy.

    jamie. i live in the uk aswell , where you from? i'am from london and used to have a 2.5 fiero with a fiero factory 355 kit on it,i think importing a engine from archie will be very expensive, have you contacted any uk breakers that have usa cars? theres a couple off them about or you can talk to the fiero factory in birmingham they have 1 or 2 v6 engines about which would be easier to do, also if your buying any parts for the fiero get them from the us direct as they are alot more expensive over here and are just oem gm parts where if you get them direct you can get up-grades. the best place i found that ship to the uk is www.fierostore.com they are soo quick with the order and always correct.if you want anymore advise your in the right place!
