    Between the engineering that went into both of these I’m probably most impressed by the fact that the Fiero still has working A/C. Look at enough ads in this hobby and you’d better just expect that you’re gonna be sweating hour a$$ off if you pull the trigger.

      Damn straight Doc! As a car guy, I ponder swaps and all sorts of stupid car stuff, most of the home brew swaps I've seen have no AC or the swap kit doesn't come with an AC option. If they thought enough to do AC in the swap it's probably done to a reasonable standard. Gotta have that AC in the south during summer months.

      It is all GM parts that were put together at different times so not as amazing as it appears. Plus no pesky computers to make it more difficult. The AC in a Fiero is installed in places where it is easy to work around, so anybody who does a swap without AC is just being lazy. If it is missing it is easy to install. Later systems can also be installed pretty easy due to there being plenty of space above the tranny to mount things.

    As someone who has had both a 6cyl and 355ci v8 swap in a 914, I can say that getting it to work how you hope it will work is the difficult part. Both of my 914s were done correctly and drove much better than a stock 4cyl or 6cyl 914, but it was not easy. The Corvair swap that was popular back in the day took out the rear seats and did the mid-engine v8, and worked well, similar to my 914. This front-engine swap makes the car just another GM v8 from the 60's, boring. Plus the wheels are completely the wrong offset and size, and it sits way too high. Pass.

    The Fiero is usually done with a Northstar swap for obvious reasons, but this looks decent minus the cheap exhaust and wrong wheels and suspension. With some sorting and $, it would be fun.

    Six pack and side pipes looks like some good old fashioned fun!
