1986 Pontiac Fiero GT
2.8L V6 Fiero engine (Dyno tested 140HP at 5,200 rpm )
4+1 manual transmission
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.

1967 Corvair Convertible vs. 1986 Pontiac Fiero - Generation Gap: Cult Classics
Cast your vote here:
Today on “Generation Gap,” the guys bring a pair of cars that fall
firmly in the “cult classics” category. Davin’s choice, a 1967
Chevrolet Corvair Monza Convertible, has been called “unsafe at any
speed.” The Corvair boasts a 2.7L, 2,683cc flat-6 engine behind the rear
wheels. Matt’s pick, a 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE, has been known to catch
fire at the most inopportune times. The Pontiac has the mid-engine 2.4L
“Iron Duke” inline four. Matt and Davin discuss the incredibly
passionate following for these classics, and try to figure out the magic
behind their cult status.
Generation Gap appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend youtube
