    Need 3800 swap expert for AD 355 project

    I've had a AD 355 project languishing for many, many years. Finally was getting the body work looking good with local restoration shop in Pensacola. However, was running into snag with comfort level doing the 3800 supercharger swap. Got conned into sending it to guy south of Dallas 2 years ago where it has basically sat idle. It needs a drive axle for the 3800 to the rear wheel among with wiring, interior, etc. etc. I have gotten a few offers to take on the project from Michigan and Connecticut. However, I was hoping to find someone closer - Southeast USA. Anyone interested, please let me know and i can provide more details and pictures. Thanks

    Try Lloyd Rasco at Fast Fieros of Dallas. He sometimes takes projects at home

    Run by a guy who has done 3800 swaps and has posted extensively on Pennocks. His work looks top notch

    I thought he nuked his reputation years ago.

    I was going to mention BV Motorsports. Might be worth looking into.

    He has done 3800 swaps? That is incredible. How long has he been in business? That is one a day for the last eleven years!

    Be cautious here since I think that Loyd is not doing much with cars at this time. There were issues with incomplete cars and vastly delayed schedules several years ago. In spite of that Loyd is one of the best engine swap mechanics that I have seen. Good looking swap with all details taken care of. I can provide photos of a 3800 SC Series III swap if anyone wants to see them.

    I'm guessing he meant the guy has done a certain number of swaps of the 3800 engine. lol

    Ohhh, I get it now. If anyone does find Lloyd, tell him I said hello. Him, I, and his Miss Oklahoma sister go back 30 years.

    Lloyd lives just a few miles from me. He lost a leg in a motorcycle accident a couple of winters ago and is not doing any car work at this time. He does have some Fiero parts for sale including complete cars. I think he can still be reached through his web site.
