Introduction to my 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT
This is the introductory video for my 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT. I'll be changing both rear wheel bearings and installing a Rodney Dickman steering rack bushing and inner tie-rod end. Once mechanically all set, I'll be painting the car, so I'll do quite a bit of sanding and I'll base coat/clear coat back to black. You can find out more about the car at it's website: http://www.butchthecat.com/88fiero/index.html The quick and dirty, I purchased the car in 2002 with 49,000 miles. It now as about 64k miles and is stored winters. It is a well optioned late 1988 year car and is very fun to drive.





Wheel Spin - Why they call me Turbo231 - My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1
From my video archives, a very short video of my Buick in action. This is my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1, one of 468 made that year and the last year of the designer cars. Taken back in probably 2002, I was playing with the waste gate, trying to find the right spot between Boosting and getting her to spool the turbo. Fan is running because the Jay Carter 93 Octaine chip makes it run any speed under 55 for cooling. You can barely hear the turbo spool. I do have other videos of this car on my channel...enjoy. (my lame sideburns included...shot by my dad)





My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series
This is a quick run down of my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series car. You can read all about it and see clear pictures at its website: http://www.butchthecat.com/86regal Sorry for the lack of action, it's just me showing some of the items I've done to the car since I've owned it. I omitted that that the silver paint is cracked and needs to be repainted and that I also needed to add the #7 lower body bushing. I plan to have it on the road in the next year or two. It currently has just over 80k miles.





Heater Core Flushing - 1994 Chevy Caprice LT1/L99 DIY Wagon 350 V8
Here is a video of me flushing out my heater core...here are the symptoms to make me do this: Heater had very little heat, even when the car was up to temperature, verified by the dash gauge and laptop reader. Temperature into the heater core was super hot, but water returning from the core was only kinda hot...aka not much flow so most of the heat was being removed from the water. Repair: To take the heater core system and wash it out with clear water, insert a "cleaning" product to dissolve any gunk that didn't get rinsed out, and then rinse that out. Return it to service. If the buildup in the core isn't too bad, this should Boost flow through the heater core. Result? It worked. A few bigger pieces of stuff came out during the initial rinse and some rusty colored water came out after the cleaning solution. The heat out of the heater core at idle is very hot, so flow has appeared to have been restored.

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 tools. 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.

Pontiac Fiero GT--D&M Motorsports Walk Around Review
Pontiac Fiero GT Video Review Presented by D&M Motorsports. 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.[citation needed] The Fiero 2M4 (2-seat, Mid-engine, 4-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.[1] 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.[2] It was impressive mileage for a 2.5-liter 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. 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. In line with its market position, the tires, brakes, and some suspension components were carried over from other GM economy cars (like the Chevrolet Citation and Chevrolet Chevette) so the Fiero could be priced appropriately. As a result, the handling and cornering abilities of the initial Fiero were merely on par with other contemporary sporty coupes (Road & Track 1985). The public had high expectations for the Fiero with its mid-engine layout and futuristic styling, which resembles more exotic mid-engine sports cars costing much more. While initially garnering good reviews for its handling (Motor Trend 1984), the Fiero soon received disappointing reviews, as the automotive critics expected higher performance from a mid-engine two-seater. Despite the critical press, the Fiero sold extremely well and Pontiac operated three shifts at the factory during 1984, and could not keep up with initial demand.[3] The sharing of suspension components with other GM cars meant the rear suspension and powertrain was almost identical to that of the Chevrolet Citation and Pontiac Phoenix; the Fiero even included rear tie rod ends attached to a "steering knuckle", although these were hard-mounted to the engine cradle and only used for maintaining the rear tire alignment. The front suspension was derived from the Chevrolet Chevette, and Chevette enthusiasts found that they could upgrade their undersized front brakes and rotors using Fiero parts. By 1985, the oil crisis was a thing of the past and demand developed for a Fiero having more engine power and better sports car performance. Pontiac responded by introducing the GT model which included upgraded suspension tuning, wider tires, and a V6 engine having 43 horsepower (32 kW) more than the base four-cylinder. In 1986, the GT model was restyled to look even more sleek.

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.
