Got the new starter installed on the Fiero so I though I would take it for a spin.

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the very cool, 1986 Pontiac Fiero GT.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Northstar Fiero 180 degree headers datalog and tuning drive
One of the first times I took the car out on the road to datalog and do a
brief video. It was running pretty bad here and refused to idle so I was
fighting to keep it running (fixed- was due to IAC calibration). I get on
it at 2:40 and 3:35 starting around 2k RPM and let off just past 5k RPM
each time (residential roads with low speed limits). Engine redlines at 7K
RPM and is very responsive and linear in power delivery but really feels
best north of 4k RPM. It starts to sound good around 3500 RPM but the
cellphone camera doesn't really do it justice.
Car is a 1988 Fiero GT with a 4.6L Northstar V8 with 180 degree long tube
headers and true dual spintech mufflers.

1986 PONTIAC FIERO GT - THE MID-ENGINE CAR
Excuse the dark interior view. This was in a cramped barn with so-so
lighting. The Pontiac Fiero is a mid-engined sports car that was built by
the Pontiac division of General Motors from 1984 to 1988. The
Fiero—meaning "proud" in Italian and "wild", "fierce", or "ferocious" in
Spanish—was designed by George Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti as a Pontiac
sports car. The Fiero was the first two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to
1938 coupes, and also the first and only mass-produced mid-engine sports
car by a U.S. manufacturer. Many technologies incorporated in the Fiero
design such as plastic body panels were radical for its time. Alternative
names considered for the car were Sprint, P3000, Pegasus, Fiamma, Sunfire,
and Firebird XP. The Fiero 2M4 (two-seat, Mid-engine,
four-cylinder) was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1984. The
1984 Fiero was the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 for 1984,
beating out the new 1984 Chevrolet Corvette for the honor. A total of
370,168 Fieros were produced over the relatively short production run of
five years; by comparison, 163,000 Toyota MR2s were sold in its first five
years. At the time, its reputation suffered from criticisms over
performance, reliability and safety issues. Today, however, compared to
less adventurous attempts at two-seaters such as the Ford EXP, the unique
style of the Fiero compared to other American cars has left it a cult
following as a collectible car. It remains a popular chassis for rebodies
and electric conversions. A mid-engine layout was chosen as a way to
reduce both aerodynamic drag and vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency,
and also for its handling, traction, and braking benefits. The sports car
potential of the mid-engine layout was not fully realized when the Fiero
debuted. Individuals present at the unveiling of the new fastback roof
style at a GM test track actually thought it was a new Corvette at first.
But this new body style simply became the GT model for 1986 while the old
1985 GT body style became the SE model. A five-speed Muncie-Getrag
transmission were installed,(coupled only to the V6 engines). Models
equipped with the four-cylinder engine remained largely unchanged. The
clutch hydraulic systems were redesigned with new master and slave
cylinders. 17,891 GT models were made this year with 83,974 Fieros' of all
models were made for '86. Thanks very much for viewing this extraordinary
1986 Pontiac Fiero GT.
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

Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
