88 Fiero GT AT Test Drive to 100 MPH

This is a slow run up to 100 mph in an 88 stock 2.8 liter V6 Fiero GT to test its automatic transmission and stability after recent repair and brake mods.The car shifts very quickly for an AT even though I did not push it very hard with this test drive just in case anything decided to let loose. This was not an acceleration test or max speed test... Stock Fiero's are just not that fast to get all excited about but still a lot of fun to drive if they can be made reliable.

Pontiac Fiero 3800 Supercharged 0-120
Not quite standing still at start but ended at 120. Any slower and it just spins the tires (245-50-16's) This was all done on an empty road that leads nowhere. 5600ft elevation going uphill. -Car has been sold- It will be missed





Hot Stock Fiero GT 2.8 5-speed
Stock Fieros 2.8s are hotter than you might think, with a little tweaking for efficiency: This car has up-graded distributer, 45,000 volt coil, 8mm magnecore wires, platinum plugs (iridium better), K&N air filter, no EGR system to strangle engine (allows your engine to breath), 180 degree thermostate (2.8s want and need to run cooler); all resulting in smoother, stronger, cleaner, more efficient running, and much better gas mileage. It's like a different car! Next tweak will be a stage 3 clutch. In this video, I dumped the clutch at 4,000rpm, but 5k would be mutch more impressive. I still got 30-ft. of rubber off the line. That means I'm definetely getting more than the factory rated 140hp, just by giving her the tweaks she wants and needs. On the high-way she jumps to 90 faster than she used to jump to 80.
