I think that it would be a good idea to put an ls1 in a fiero. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="gr_stretch.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="gr_tounge.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="images/icons/confused.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[cheers]" title="" src="graemlins/gr_cheers.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Camaro]" title="" src="graemlins/camaro.gif" />

I'm trying it with mine. So far, block seems to be longer than your regualer SBC. Might go with aluminum SBC instead. No clearance for accessories.

If the LS1 doesn't fit, why not the NorthStar?! They drop the entie motor/tansaxle in them. Considering the biggest piece of shit in the Fiero conversion is the weak-ass trans. The NS has 300 from the get-go, and they actually have a lot of mods for them. There is a company that all they do is NS motors...anyone here think of the nam and website?!?!

Something i just thought of....You might try using a TH-325 or TH-425 transaxle from a Olds Toronado or older Eldorado, the engine mounts longitudinally (front to back) with the transmission to the side via i believe a chain drive. Its an automatic transaxle and for a traditional small block it requires an oil pan for swapping a small block into a 4wd S-truck. Plus they had Olds 455s and Cadillac 472/500s bolted to them, so they can take torque. Good luck on that project.
