As sweet as it sounds with a sub 300lb Motor - I just can't justify 4K for just the block

I thought Land Rover was still making this same aluminum beastie?

The engine in the article is a RWD engine. It would need an adapter plate to fit in a Fiero.

Also Pappy, I think you're talking about the Buick / Rover aluminum V8. The 3800 V6 is actually a derivative of that engine.

By George you are correct - I was thinking of the V8! The old 215

smile

And I'd drop that in a Fiero as well wink
I wonder what kind of performance GM enGAneers could get out of it with current technology

 any info on the 3800 is good even on the old style,I think the old aluminum small buick,olds,pontiac engine is the best engine for a fiero,they are difficult to find..
                  
   THE BESTEST SWAPer BUICK 3.8 BY FAR IS THE NON TURBO,NON SUPERCHARGED, THAT HAS BEEN PORTED BY A REAL PRO LIKE MODELLO ,MUCH FASTER THAN THE SUPERCHARGED 3.8& GETS 2 TO 3 MORE MPG runs much smoother
 the supercharged 3.8 were just a little faster than the factory non supercharged
not a fan of the smaller S/C pulley.
 but my candy bar is bigger & last longer than yours
 the new English model is to difficut to adapt,but a much better engine.
 he old small V8 would not be very fast stock !!

 CURRENT SWAP INFO=excellent info on 3800 4t60 wiring on pennock
4t60 wiring ,grantman =3/16/2013
