Steve's 1988 Fiero 3.4L swap ENGINE FOR SALE
I've been asking $1000. the engine is completely rebuilt, everything is
brand new except the cranks shaft and camshaft.
NEW - Pistons, rings, bearings, Timing gears and chain, valve seals, valves
were polished and seats were cleaned, all new gaskets seals (uses zero oil,
leaks zero oil).
less than 2,000 miles on rebuild, before rebuid it had about 61,000 miles
Only reason for thinking of selling the engine is to do a newer engine
swap. (3800 Supercharged probably...though I'd prefer a 3400 or 3500)
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.

Homemade gokart (gocart) with Harbor Freight 2.5 hp engine 79cc
I just finished up with this homemade gokart with a harbor freight 2.5hp
engine. We have a small backyard and my boys have never driven one before
so I was trying to have it go around lawn mower speed. I'd say it probably
goes 10mph when topped out. The governer is removed and it will wind out
with me on it to over 4500 rpm (I have a tiny tach). I used a 12 tooth
clutch and then took a spare jackshaft sprocket and welded it to a 40 tooth
axle gear which is on the jackshaft. Then it goes to a 13 tooth sprocket
and then to a 60 tooth. Frame is welded out of 1" tubing from local
hardware stores. It was very tricky because of the thin tubing and
avoiding blowing through the metal with the welder. This engine is capable
of much faster speed with
different gearing however my family has a yard with some hills and the boys
are cautious about putting the pedal to the metal so the low gearing works
fine. It did take me several head scratches to figure out why the engine
kept shutting down and then figured out it had a low oil cutoff that was
triggered when I was cutting the corners. I actually built two karts in
two weeks. First one was a 1.5 feet longer which was great for adults but
even with the adjustable seat the boys were having a hard time pushing the
gas all the way down.
The 60T sproket was swapped for a 40T sprocket on the main axle for
additional ground clearance. The current drive is a 12T clutch to a 40T on
the jackshaft outputing to a 11T and then to a 40T on the axle sprocket.
This gives a final drive ratio of approx 7:1. I clocked it with my gps at
12-13mph downhill and 11-12mph uphill yesterday with my 215lbs on it.
Climbed some fairly good hills with no problems. We hooked a radio flyer
wagon to it and I pulled my 11 year old son and 4 year old daughter in it
at the same time (an extra 110lbs) with no problems.

1982 Pontiac Firebird - 2.5 L4 Iron Duke
Video taken June 16th 2007
2 years ago, my friend and I discovered a 1982 Pontiac Firebird (Right Hand
Drive) advertised on carsales.com.au.
Being that the current law for probationary drivers is NO V8's, I realised
that I was unable to buy a Trans Am for my first car. The only alternatives
I saw at the time were to find a V6 or a L4 Firebird which I was convinced
there were none of in the country.
Once I came accross this one I was determined to test drive it and see
whether or not it was a good decision for me to buy. (I ended up buying an
87 Pontiac Fiero GT which worked out better than if I had bought the 82
Firebird as restoration costs would have been too expensive and I wasn't
really fond of the Duke's Performance).
Since this was the only L4 Firebird we knew of, we test drove it anyway and
learned how a 25 year old economy engine performs in a vehicle as heavy as
the 3rd gen Firebird.................
