Our Fiero V-8 Engine Conversion Kits allow you to install a small block Chevy engine into any 1984 thru 1988 Pontiac Fiero. They allow you to retain all stock options, including a/c. This kit is designed to be a bolt on installation with no frame cutting required. We have kits for all stick shift and automatic Fieros. The weight gain for a 4 cylinder to V-8 swap is about 150 pounds, depending on the V-8 engine used. Handling is affected slightly at the most. Engines that can be used include any small block Chevy from 1968 to present, note: on the 400 c.i. engine, our flywheel & Balancer will need to be balanced with your crank. You can use older engines if you have later model Cylinder heads. Note: We now have kits for the new LSx series of engines, you can find that info elsewhere on this site.
Using engines in the 250 to 400 h.p. range, we have run in excess of 500,000 miles on our test cars, and have had very few drive line failures. It should be noted, however, even though we have had very few failures, that any motor vehicle can fail if subjected to severe and constant abuse. Most Fiero transmissions are now 20+ years old. Naturally low mile transmissions or freshly rebuilt transmissions are going to be more reliable than used transmissions that have been abused, neglected or have high mileage on them. Contrary to some of the claims made by others, we guarantee that the stock fiero axles won't break.
Because of the fact that the stock Fiero transmissions are getting older and more worn as time goes on, I’ve developed a conversion kit that allows you to use the new G6 6 speed transmissions in your Fiero. You can find details of that kit on this Web Site.
We have been producing, selling and installing the V-8 Archie Fiero V-8 Conversion Kits for over 20 years now. There are now more than 2500 of these V-8 conversions on the road in all 50 States, Canada, Central America, Europe and the Middle East. We first introduced our kit to the public in early 1988.
Our V-8 kits are shipped from stock within days of your order.
When buying kits of this type, be sure to compare and know exactly what is included and not included. Check out the supplier. You would not believe how many of these people will tell you what ever you want to hear to get your down payment. Check on the manufacturer through B.B.B., Kit Car Magazine, Internet Forums and the Complete Guide to Specialty Cars, be satisfied with the product and the supplier's reputation. Buy from the source, not from some want-to-be. Remember, if a deal sounds to good to be true, it most likely is. Don't send your down payment to some clown who hopes to get enough down payments to produce the parts that he claims to have "ready to ship".
