    I like the engine swap. Did you use a V8 Archie kit to adapt it to the Fiero transaxle. I almost went this route but decided on a series II out of a 99 Buick. I am in the process of adding a turbo to get some unencombered horsepower.

    What is the A/R of your turbo? I an looking at a Volvo G3-G4 unit with an A/R of .60.

    Nice setup, love the AWIC! What kind of numbers are you expecting? The Syclone motors were amazingly fast w/ the AWD system, in a light weight RWD/Mid Engine it must be awesome feeling.

    Welcome to the board..

    I have wondered why there are not more 4.3 swaps..It should drop in a lot easier than the 350 and give you lots of room since its basicly a 350 minus two cylinders.. The Syclone/Typhoon trucks still remain one of my favorite sleeper street racers and there are a lot of built trucks in this area.. Needless to say, I love that setup you have in your Fiero and it must fly.. Im suprised the tranny can hold up to the huge torque curve the turbo creates..

    I am also looking at maybe adding a slight upgrade to my stock turbo..

    great engine choice.

    That cyclone 4.3L is one of those older motors thats just got gobs of potential, like the Grand National 3.8L.
