Hence why i am mocking up a SI/SII Hybrid...the much better symetrical port SII heads on the Tall Deck/Long rod SI shortblock.

The 442 is in storage and will be torn apart once measurments are taken to begin fabrication of the rear 3800 turbocharger setup. but I talk about this stuff in my thread...

Just think of it as the best of both worlds...(just think...you COULD put a GenV M90 and intercooler on your SI....
and start out buying the best stuff...instead of swapping a stock SII L67 then modding it...

Good luck on the fiero...fun cars...my boss was asking me a couple of weeks ago what it would take to throw the GN turbo 3.8 in there...we've since decided that engine and powertrain are going into an S10...we will probably be just fixing the 2.5

I often wonder what the 442 would do in the 1/4 if we just removed the front engine

We're talking about a FIERO here. There'* a reason they select the Series 1 over the Series 2.

It'* a FIT problem.

I definitely didn't pick the S1 over the S2 just based on the FIT factor. this S1 presented itself to me for $150 (the whole bonneville came with it) with 108k miles on it, and i jumped on it. If I could go the s2 route i would, but until i have an s2 in my hands that can wait

I think he will get enought with the S1 , in a Fiero....

Serie 1 or 2 can get more torque than an LT1 with a smaller pulley and supporting mods.
Who cares about peak horsepower


I would like to see a Fiero with just my engine setup!

Try a 500 whp s2 turbo-charged 3800 in a fiero. I saw it, and I have dyno vids if anyone would like to see

Hey james glad to see you made it over here. These are some good guys.This is the site that convinced me to do my swap. I wanted to mention also that none of the fiero guys run bypass valves is this potentaily dangerous?

Potentially VERY dangerous. Even more dangerous if their PCM doesn't eliminate fuel-cutoff at high-rpms.
