You hit the engine, the engine hits you, the end result is the same.

Consider if you will the Exotics... Ferrari'*, Lambo'* Porsche'*... Decades of engineering REAR ENGINE RACE CARS... they are not wrong. A Fiero with a Roll Cage, and reinforcements for track use will out do a Corvette everyday of the week. All assuming you actually HAVE A WRECK... god willing you don't


just my 2 pennies.... btw havent been on enough to see this thread... DAN, LAST THING YOU NEED IS A LS7 FIERO!!!! good god lol

As much as I love the sound of a V8, I know very well weight is not your friend. And a V6 is way lighter then a V8.

The L67 weighs around 500 pounds, the LS1 weighs around 430.
