I might be going halfsies into this with my buddy if the car hasn't sold by next weekend. For that price he's giving it away.
I was hoping you had some insight on this car. Good luck and I hope you are able to pick it up!

One of the most unique and interesting 'Fieros' I have seen.

This popped up on one of my friend's FB-page today. https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/cto/5578785024.html While the pics aren't the greatest, I would say that for $9500 it would be worth a look if you live anywhere near San Diego. LS3 with the Mendeola trans is easily worth that. And what is up wi...

Re: I don't have that Series8217 money but...

I don't know what was used here, but Slammed-Fiero (Jon McCreery) did this on an M3 recently as well and he used Leatherique. I don't know if this image will work but: https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtp1/v/t1.0-9/12439301_10156703925575501_2499522262567789285_n.jpg?oh=fc49af8669e654769...

Re: Who actually has a running car?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMarKH01gXQ My fd is running after 2 years at a buddys place. Been so busy with new kid, new job and new house that it's been on the back burner. Going to pick it up soon though. Nice! I still want an FD to compliment my RX-8. I've also been checking out FC turboII's...

Re: New winter car. Subaru

Thanks guys. No build-thread on the house Will. I really don't have much to do on this one other than painting and replacing a hot-water tank. I have to say that I really love this car. I've only put 200 miles on it and it that time I have found that this car is my ideal DD. The seats are snug, but ...

Re: Seat Rails for non fiero seats

This was a solution me and a friend of mine came up with to mount a set of unknown Recaros into my Fiero back in the day: http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m221/akursedx/fiero/IMG_0371.jpg http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m221/akursedx/fiero/IMG_0377.jpg http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m221/ak...

New winter car. Subaru

Hey guys, I know I don't post here much but I still do read the forums. Anyways, I picked up a new DD for the colder months. I previously had a 2014 Ford Escape Titanium which taught me a valuable lesson about enjoying what I drive. It was a nice vehicle with all kinds of cool technology, but as far...

Along the same line as the Cayenne, but a Touraeg V10 TDI would make for a nice tow-rig

Re: My 3.4 DOHC powered '88 Fiero

Going for the tactical blueberry look? Something to that effect. This project is now on hold though. I moved back to Buffalo and within a week I had a blue-hair back into my RX8 in a parking lot resulting in enough damage to get a new door, fender and respray of half the car. Plus I decided I'm bor...

Re: My 3.4 DOHC powered '88 Fiero

Would you be offended or flattered if I did the same wrap to my RX8 except with blue accents instead of red? I have to do something with the exterior of it and I think this would be awesome, plus it would help hide some of the dings.

Re: Porterfield R4-S pads

The Eradispeed rotors are affordable and light but they are not track rotors, they're for show. Crossdrilled rotors just crack under the constant heating and cooling of road course use. Porsche gets away with holes in their rotors because they arent crossdrillrd. They cast in the holes, so the grai...

Re: Porterfield R4-S pads

If you could afford it, you should buy some Baer Eradispeed 2-piece rotors. That's a lot of money though. Centric sells Cryo-treated rotors fairly cheap and I have read that cryo-treating really helps extend rotor life for track-day cars. As for the pads, I'm not all too surprised that the R4S has f...

Re: Post your current stable of cars and toys!

I'm down to two cars at the moment: My main car is my 2011 WRX. It doesn't have much in mods; tune, catback, intake, and wheels. I do plan on a few more upgrades in due time. (I have since tinted the windows, tails, and plasti-dipped the front bumper vents.) http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m221/a...

Re: Got 3/4 of what you were looking for Steven!

It has a blow off valve? Or are you just hearing the wastegates open. Usually diesels don't have a blow off valve. I don't know tbh. I know diesels usually don't have a bov, but maybe you might have to vent some boost when you are above 50psi. I don't think I saw one though. I'll have to ask. Cool....

One of my friends should have a video of it. The BOV on it sounds awesome! I'll see if I can get it. He actually built the car himself for a customer.

Re: Trade my RX8 for an E36 M3?

Good, I was really hoping for some varied opinions. It's funny because at first thought, I didn't an E36 M3 and RX8 compared well, but after researching them, I have actually found that they are rather similar. The RX8 is more nimble and a bit slower in a straight-line where the M3 makes up for that...
