    Cadillac 4.9 in a stretched Fiero

    Hello. I have installed a complete 93 Deville 4.9 powertrain in a Fiero with a 7 inch stretch. What we are into now is widening the rear track. Reason being we are installing a Koenig version of a Testarossa body, and it is W-I-D-E!!
    Wondering if anyone else happens to have experiance in this? Thank you.

    I was told to go with the Held motor sports setup - http://www.heldmotorsports.com/wide.htm
    its expensive but the best on the market and gets the job done correctly... but I guess you probably could do that do to the Caddi transaxle? Maybe wheel spacers then? High offset wheels?

    Yeah, nobody is into adding width to a Caddy, but.....we have found some different length axels. Now to find the right combination to give us the measurement we need.
    And the joke is,<br />when he awoke his,<br />body was covered in Coke fizz !

    I found a lot of Rim stores will be more then helpful to find a rim with a high offest to prevent the use of wheelspacers - the only problem is you have to make sure your wheel doesn't hit the wheel well when turning!

    Dale, any pics? I am interested in seeing anyones pics of stretches. I've been considering doing a 350 or something else in a stretch for something like a lambo.
