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.
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
Already selling the Corvette, General Motors management and accountants
were opposed to investing in a second two-seater sports car. But in 1979,
during the oil crisis, management saw a market opportunity for a
fuel-efficient sporty commuter car, and design work on the Fiero commenced.
To this end, it was fitted with a fuel efficient version of GM's 2.5 L
four-cylinder "Iron Duke" engine capable of 27 mpg-US (8.7 L/100 km; 32
mpg-imp) in the city and 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the
highway with the economy-ratio transmission option. These figures are U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency test-circuit results, published by Pontiac,
and confirmed from multiple sources. It was impressive mileage for a 2.5
L engine of the period, and still good by today's standards, but the
three-speed automatic reduced highway mileage to only 32 mpg-US (7.4 L/100
km; 38 mpg-imp). With respect to fuel economy, the Fiero would appeal to a
market niche for which the Corvette with its V8 engine was unsuitable.
1987 saw changes to the front and rear fascias on the "base coupe" with the
SE and GT models keeping the same "Aero" nose. The new non-aero noses lost
the black bumper pads of the earlier models and had a smoother look. The
four-cylinder engine's power rating increased to 98 hp (73 kW) with some
major modifications which included a roller cam, redesigned intake
manifold, distributorless ignition system (DIS), open combustion chamber
cylinder head and upgraded throttle-body fuel injection system. This was
the last year for the spin-on oil filter on the four-cylinder. The car was
offered in Bright Metallic Blue and replacing the ribbed black molding was
the round style found on the GT models. As a side note, the SE models
retained the ribbed molding, and added the aero nose found on the GT.
Redesigned headlight motors appeared in 1987. Additionally, starting with
the 1987 model Pontiac dealerships offered an upgrade in the form of an
"option" that changed the original body to a Ferrari-type body, called the
Fiero Mera. While technically a "kit", the change in body style was offered
only on new Fieros and is considered a class of car in its own right. There
was a limited production of Fiero Meras made however, as the company that
produced them, Corporate Concepts, was sued by Ferrari and ordered to stop.

Supercharged Fiero First test drive and 0-60 run
This was my first short test drive and 0-60 run in my Supercharged Fiero.
This is with the 4-speed auto that came out of the GTP. I timed the 0-60 at
about 4.9s, but now, with all the body panels and interior reinstalled, it
is right around 5.4s. It had all panels removed at the time, so I didnt
want to have it on the road for very long.

How to Remove a 2.8 V6 Engine from a Pontiac FIero step-by-step (HD)
This is a video giving a visual step-by-step process on how to remove the
2.8 liter V6 engine from a Pontiac Fiero using basic tools. The only tools
that you may need to rent, borrow or buy is an engine hoist and some 4
wheel moving dolly's. I've attempted to make this video as visual as
possible so that anyone could see how to remove the engine using basic
This video can also be a useful guide when reinstalling the engine as is
shows how things were disconnected. Most of the disassembly steps can be
done in any order with the exception of a few parts.
Please comment and share with other Fiero enthusiasts.
If I do not know how to do something, I usually turn to YouTube FIRST to
see if there is a video on it. Since I use YouTube to teach me things I
figured I'd pay it forward and post videos of what I know.
