Default Kill?

Well, this was fun. A cocky little so-and-so I work with just challenged me.

I was going on a much needed coffee/smoke break, and he was leaving for the night. On his way out, he stopped at tonight'* Sup'* dek, and saw me reading the other kill stories, and asked if I thought I could take his Fiero.

I figured "What the hell" and headed out for break. Turns out he has an early model rusty white Fiero. He points it out kinda proudly and asks "So, what do you think" I'm polite and say it looks pretty cool. My Bonne is right by the door, so I hop in and fire her up.

Well, he suddenly remembers he has to meet some friends at the bar and has to get going. "Maybe next weekend". Guess he didn't realize what was under the hood, huh? And I'm just an old NA with a modded airbox.

So, can just the sound of the engine scaring him off be considered a kill?

Thank you sir, I got it from one of my Aurora forums. But more importantly, you gotta chase down that Fiero

If that 2500 lb Fiero has six cylinders, he may be handing you your ***. Be thankful he had other priorities. :P

It could have been anything with that Feiro. They came with 4'* & 6'* .

Se4
SE6
GT( 6 cyl..badass)
In 88 they also had the formula
Then you can always get the SE4 junkbox & stuff in a V8 for less than $2000


But I must say the sound of a gutted airbox with a K&N does sound mean.

If that Fiero has a V6, I'll eat my hat. I just heard him start it up, sounds like a ricer.

Didn't say anything about a rematch. Hmmmmmmm....

Carefull, for all you know he could have a SC 3800... I'm pretty sure they do bolt right up..
I wouldn't put $0.01 into a Fiero though, they hideous, and aren't exactly comfortable. I guess every manufacturer can be allowed one screw up...
