Im buildint my first kit, Lambo mercy. Im just starting out, got the Fiero all stripped down ready for a professional stretch. I have kind of paused inorder to get as much info as I can before I go on. Im looking for a good powerful engine at reasonable cost. Im not cheap but also not full of money, I would have a real Lambo lol. I thought of putting the LS1 engine but the whole trany issue sounds like a pain in the azs. So now Im looking for a powerful engine and transmission I can pull out of one car and put into my fiero/lambo. I thought of the Dodge Stealth RT Twin Turbo and the 3000GT VR4...same engine. There was a few years when they made them FWD, they come rated at 320hp and since its a twin turbo, I can easily bring the engine up to 450-500+ HP (which I probably will)
My question is can I use the engine and the tranny out of this car (FWD) and drop it in the back of the fiero/lambo. What problems might I run into?
Im trying to find a front engine/FWD lots of power combo and has to be manual 5-6spd.
Thanks guys!

Keep in mind, the FWD R/T model is 222 hp, 5 speed manual or 4 spd auto.
The twin turbo is 320, AWD with a viscous coupling to the rear wheels, geared to give the rear 61% of the torque. Getrag 6 spd manual only.

HI I have a mitsi GTO 3l twinturbo in NZ had it for 12 years great car, gearbox would not take 400-500 for very long, there was a local company that used to run a road car with 450hp but they say gearboxes failed often, car produces heaps of tq says 43.5 kg.m @2500rpm and 280ps .just after i got it gearbox needed work due to leak it was then i discovered the shaft from the gearbox to the transfer case had twisted 1 tooth around on the spine so it was replaced mine suspect previous owner gave it a hard time, has a getrag 5 speed its a 93 car only he later like 97 had the 6 speed from japan.
regards
Graeme

Building your won car looks very fun! I'm wondering how much does it cost to build one considering that some parts may not be as original like the engine.
