Re: Hmmmmnnnn...

Fiero engine swaps I remember seeing online: 3800 SC's, 3.4's, LS's, HT4100's and I believe someone had a carbed small block. So I wonder what the fiero guys are using for transmissions on their v8 and higher hp swaps.

Re: Hmmmmnnnn...

That would have been cool to see a fwd v8 turbo beretta.

Have you thought about the fwd auto that came on the v8 impala and monte Carlo?

Re: Rebuilding My '96 Beretta

If you are interested, there is also the option to do a 3500 v6 swap: http://milzymotorsports.com/3500-swap/ Stock height or lowered is up to you. If you replace the front struts, sometimes you can find a Z26 in the scrap yard that might still have its factory springs in it. If you can find an FE3 f...

Re: My Beretta's! :)

It'd be sweet to see a LNF swap I've mentioned it before but no one is sure how possible it is. My sky has the rwd turbo LNF in it. I'm not sure how different it is to the FWD version, if I knew I'd try and compare between the engines. It will be a long time before I decide anything though. I've al...

The plan this year is to try and take many more photos of all of these cars, especially the Indy.

Re: My Beretta's! :)

Awesome! Great looking cars you have there Thanks. :) I know I haven't posted an update recently, I've been busy with a lot of things. I attached some photos and wrote an update below. The cars have been stored all winter so I haven't been able to do much with them, the 87 Cadillac I've been winter...

Re: Ceramic vs semi metallic, does ceramic get hotter?

I appreciate everyones input! :) So far I havent noticed squeaking. Stopping power has still been rock solid. No brake fade at all either for freeway ramp stopping and slow downs. I'm still waiting to see how they behave on a 90'F+ day. Still cold where I am. I've always been using the best semi met...

Re: How to Begin Restoration??

Yep I seen auto catalog before. Usually only to check factory 0-60 and 1/4 mile times for random cars. And to see what they weigh. lol

Stencil: Is yours the blue one that I remember seeing that got or is getting fully stripped and redone? That car will be epic when its finished!

Re: How to Begin Restoration??

I think it was all in the tuning, I don't know if they made different cams. The exhaust on our venture was nothing special, aside from having a giant muffler which made it super quiet. To share my expierence; I did something similar some years ago with my 96 that I still have: I replaced my engine, ...

Re: How to Begin Restoration??

I suggest taking a look at the underneath and making sure it isnt rusting to much before going too far. This way you know you will have a car that you can enjoy for a long time after making it better. When you open your doors do you see any rust holes in the door james in the bottom front corners on...

Re: How to Begin Restoration??

I second the steel/rubber felpro lower intake gaskets. I have those on my 96 Beretta's 3100 engine. The plastic ones always get brittle and crack appart. Rettax3: I thought there was one other 3.4 DOHC swap someone started on a Beretta some years ago and they never finished/gave up? I know there are...

Re: How to Begin Restoration??

There is the 3.4 DOHC and the 3400 SFI. The 3400 SFI looks like the 3100 SFI. and the intake is swappable from the 3100 SFI to the 3400 SFI. Below is a photo of each: The 3400 SFI: (Code: LA1; Gen 3 v6) 67678080.jpg The 3.4 DOHC: (Code: LQ1; Gen 2 v6) 70191517.jpg Wiki page has more info: [url]https...

Re: How to Begin Restoration??

This site is good for finding used auto parts: http://www.car-part.com Just be careful though. Sometimes it can be hit or miss with used engines. Even low mileage ones. There is also the option to buy a new 3100 long block and swap the intake, oil pan, and sensors after cleaning them up. I agree tha...

Re: How to Begin Restoration??

I agree that the money spent trying to restore it could easily be the same or more than what it would cost to find a nice one. It depends on how far you want to go with the restoration and what all you plan on doing. If anything needs replaced it might be a lot of custom work. There are places that ...

Re: My Beretta's! :)

Man, I am in love! My Yellow Indy isn't bad for what I paid for it, but it is a driver -yours is a collector's piece, for certain. And your GTZ is gorgeous. '90 is my favorite year for Berettas (half of mine are that vintage :wink: ). I still want a '90 GTZ -somehow I think that will round-out my c...
