Northstar Fiero with a cooked clutch
Backing my 86 Fiero GT with 2003 Cadillac Northstar Engine into the garage.
Someone stole it and cooked the clutch, so this was the last time it ran
before getting torn apart.
'85 Fiero GT Stock with 200+K
Video of my 85 Fiero GT. Engine is completely stock and has a little over
205,000 miles on it. Repairs and upgrades I've done incude stage 2 Beck and
Arnly Clutch, 2nd generation stock Fiero clutch hydraulics (versus the sub
par 1st gen which it had), shortened shifter to 3 inches, KYB suspension
all around, 17" rims with Nexen high performance tires, magnecore 8mm
ignition wires, new distrubuter, platinum spark plugs, and new gaskets
throughout. Not a huge chunk of rubber, but pretty impressive for a stock
2.8 with 200K and really grabby tires. The red one is my father's stock 86
Fiero GT 5 speed. Link to his vid:
Performance Clutch - Explained
What is a performance clutch? Clutch kit? How does a performance clutch
work? A performance clutch basically involves three changes over
traditional organic clutches. This video features a Yonaka performance
clutch kit. A performance clutch has a higher clamping force on the
pressure plate (via the diaphragm spring). Performance clutches use
different materials which can absorb less heat and that don't lose
performance at higher temperatures. Finally, performance clutches use a
"puck" design, 3 puck, 4 puck, 6 puck, which increase the pressure on the
friction material, to prevent slip.

3800 engine conversion in 1985 fiero se
We got the cradle back into the car, this is what it looks like.
A while later we got dual Exhaust so
the shift selector would be clear.
Got the tube for the air box from something with a 3.1L v6.
Built custom fuel lines, still have to figure out the deck lid.
The flywheel bolts sheared after 32 miles. The parts store gave us the

Grocery Capacity of a Pontiac Fiero
And it could have held twice this much, and even more in the second trunk
So, Pontiac Solstice sales are down, after the initial mad rush to be on
the waiting list? Who woulda thunkit.
After the ones who just HAD to be the first to own what is essentially a
four-wheeled motorcycle, who else would be buying? Certainly not people who
might reasonably expect a sports car to hold a few bags of groceries, or a
50-pound sack of potting soil, or 40 brick pavers, or a duffle bag and
backpack for a weekend trip. All of which I can and have carried in the
front and rear trunks of Old Red.
Parking lot doughnuts, burnouts, drifting and 180's are all a blast. But
sometimes, practicality trumps Big Fun. It's a pretty safe bet Bob Lutz
doesn't shop for his own groceries, or he never would have approved the
Solstice for production with that ridiculous "trunk".
It should be a never-ending source of embarrassment for him and his
engineers that the Miata folding hardtop has more trunk space with the top
down than the Solstice's folding soft-top has with the top UP.
And as the owner of two GM cars that were designed and built here in
America, I'm entitled to rip GM up, down and sideways.

GM 3800 Engine Transmission removal (Pontiac Grand Prix)
2010-12-13 : Drivetrain removal from wrecked Pontiac Grand Prix. We remove
thee drivedrain by dropping the subframe from under the car. The steering
rack and front suspension are still attached. The drivetrain has only
99,635 miles. It's certain to be useful for a future project.
