L67 swaps are fairly common in Fieros, Series II swaps are more common than the Series I though. A stock Series II L67 will put a Fiero in the low-mid 13'*. A pulley and rockers and your EASILY in the 12'*.

Yeah they throw all kinds of engines into those fireo'*. SBC'*, LS1'*, North*'*, 60degreev6'*, etc.

I really doubt that the paint on the */c creates that much of a thermal barrier. When the paint is sprayed on in liquid form, it conforms to the cast outside of the */c. There is no air trapped or anything stopping heat transfer between the */c and the paint so the difference in heat should be negligible.
