Default curious on HP output on my build up.. nothing outrageous

Well plan on bolting on stuff to the motor nothing to special, but I figure it should liven things up

Headers
3.25 pulley
DHP PCM
1.9 Intense Rockers
160 modded thermostat
NGK (2 stages colder to handle the 3.25 pulley)
5% alternator pulley

that pretty much covers it.. and of course the 75 wet shot of nitrous

any advice is more then welcomed

Assuming you're starting with a Series II, over 300 would be a safe bet!

I'm betting 300-315 by what you have listed, starting at 240 stock hp.

Well here comes the shocker.. going into a formula fiero with the 5spd getrag 3.61

been a big fan of the 3800SC for awhile and I see the market place has really taken flight, and after riding in a GTP and other cars I love these motors even more

Yep, currently have 3.4 from a 95 camaro in there ran a [email protected] with me goofing the starts up..

my goal is for 13'* and I'll be happy, I'm on Pennocks Fiero Forum and various people have put 3.4 pulleys on there and ran 13.1-13.4, overall I want a little more performance and good gas mileage the 3800SC series II will do it for me

Yeah I'm crazy, but I love the fiero first got into them when I was 16 now 22 and owning a 88 Formula they've grown on me quite fondly.

sounds like a fun ride. hardest thing is going to be getting it to hook because the fiero is soooo light.

My cousin has that car . Probably the funniest car I have ever driven . I love it .
Those 3800'* are great engines. I would love to drop one in a sunfire.
