Browse around, none are too clear but you get the idea...

Motec M48 pro ECU
Motec traction control Multiplex
Motec ignition expander

Comp cams roller rocker and push rods
ARP studs throughout

The main feature of the engine is the twin sprintex superchargers, these are screw type compressors as opposed to roots type

From what I've heard Fieros are expensive to insure. They have fairly flimsy fiberglass bodies that will provide very little protection in the case of an accident. But like the others said: do your research, and don't rush into anything!

FYI, not fiberglass, but the same plastic that the 92-95 Bonneville Fenders are made of.

Ive seen this done.. The automotive engine class at the College I attend did it as a fun project. When done the SC sis only 2 inches from the back glass. They had to massivly stregthen the frame. Its funny because before they put the snad bags in the front the car lifted the front end about 1-2 feet off the ground.

I helped troubleshoot one at my buddies shop with an L-67 in it.
That engine compartments was TIGHT. I mean like REAL close in places.
The SC seemed to cause some heating issues with the stock cooling.
It was a fast little car though and handled pretty good.

If you are talking about the Fiero didnt' they come with the 2.5?...i remember hearing about the water jackets weren't very good(too small, too big?...can't remember) and the 2.5 out of the late 80'* early 90'* Skylark had the better jackets...so it was a good choice for GM repairs...is this true...i want to be sure!!!!

I had a 91 buick Skylark as my first car....it was fun.
