About “224whp & 219 ft/lbs”

I bought this in Dec. '05 to replace my totalled 91 sunbird. What a great replacement this has turned out to be. the wreck was a blessing in a good disguise.....

I got this car for 900 bucks. what a steal, eh? it has run a best of -

15.99 @ 83mph in the 1/4 mile *old news*
14.99 @ 92mph
14.84 @ 92mph
14.71 @ 94mph

Dyno'd 191hp @ 5600RPMs and 202 ft/lbs @ 4500RPMs, which pushed it to a 14.71 pass @ 94.54 mph. Ran that with a 2.07 60 foot time on BFG drag radials.

The built motor is IN, with much trouble and compromise.... but it is in, and it runs, and it drives :D it's got the lope, hehehe. vids (still) on the way).

Dyno'd it again a couple weeks ago with the good motor, 224whp and 219ft/lbs, still needs some tuning, it has some small driveablility issues on the street, but i've been driving it for about 3-4 weeks now with no major issues. got rained out + an ignition issue when i went to the track after the dyno, so i need to get out there again, 2 weeks tops for that....

About “fiero”

I purchased this car out of high-school back in 1991'
Its been well kept and has over 212,000 miles now and still running strong. Made of plastic so no rust. Fastest I've been in this car had been 120mph.
Fun Reliable and quick.
