11/26/2014 To all DOHC Fiero enthusiasts:
Summer is just about over!!!
I took over this site from my friend Bob Neumann (85frankenstein) in 2008 after he failed to maintain the domain registration and the DOHC Fiero site in general. I had a CD hardcopy of the site code from 2003 that I used to restore it on my server. I have continued to have interest in doing this swap for the past 10 years, and the car on which I have planned to do it finally had its engine die in the fall of 2012.
Due to maintenance on other toys and a troublesome 1992 GTP restoration that was originally intended as training for this project, I have let the site languish. I threw it back online, saw that it rendered and did nothing more with it. After the site was migrated earlier this year to a new server, I didn't test it thoroughly and just discovered yesterday that it didn't work anymore.
So today, I've fixed most of the broken links and images and restored most functionality. I have completed my other higher-priority projects and am finally moving forward with this one, and will be using the site info here to build it while also devoting some more time to improving it as I go along. -David
As the Summer
draws to a close this Labor Day Weekend, many more projects will
soon be underway. There has been great success this year with
people fine tuning their rides as well as starting from scratch
with this particular combination. As more people attempt to do
this, the information grows and processes are tweaked. We will
continue to provide you with the info that we can so you can
make an educated decision for what will best suit both you and
your car. If you have a different method than is posted on a
particular subject, or have information that isn't posted yet,
PLEASE submit it so we can continue to grow the information
store! Your time in documenting would be greatly appreciated by
all of our readers!
With Labor Day
being this weekend, let me take the time to wish you a very
Happy and Safe holiday. Please drive safely and definitely don't
drive if you've had a few drinks. It's just not worth it!
We are in need of
write-ups in the following areas to help complete the information
(anything outside of what has been posted or possibly for more
(with item number, description, and price)
else that you can think of that hasn't been posted yet.
What we hope
this site will bring is a COMPLETE information store for this
swap. I WILL NOT pull ANY information of any sort from any other
website without express written permission of the originating
author. I'm basically saying that if it isn't your's, don't
submit it. Only original write-ups please. We don't want to tick
anyone off, just want to help people out in providing as
accurate and complete information as we can. If the information
has been pulled from another site, it is annotated as such and
proper credit is always given to the author. Please submit all
articles, pics, etc... to the email link in the navigation bar
to the left.

knowledge is power and we all have to learn from somewhere.
