Test fitting the exhaust. I came off the rear manifold into a Y then into two cats and out through two inline mufflers. I was worried it would be too loud but im very happy with the sound.

This it it finished. Since I like the sound I will be rebuilding it with mandrel bends next year.

Ive had the car running now for over 1000kms and its amazing. I had some clutch chatter over the first 300 - 400kms but that seems to have worked itself out after the break in period. Here it is now after I got some new rims!

The next step is to get rid of the huge gap in the front end with some new springs. I will be doing some suspension work over the winter with red poly bushings and boots. I need to do a brake upgrade as well. There is a 13" upgrade available on Pennocks that looks sweet and Ive heard good feedback on so I will most likely go with them

Beautiful car and great engine choice. A Kitchener guy you say? Me too! I'd like to meet someday and talk Fiero. Mine is an 84 base, no options car. I'm looking to build it over the winter. I hope it turns out as nice as yours.

I look forward to meeting people on this thread aswell. Anyone interested in my gold rims and tires? Some people love the gold I personally hated them lol. They are in great shape though.
