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!

Problems;
Shifting the transmission
Adapting axles from ??? to Fiero hubs.
Custom cooling hoses - Put two rads in the back instead of the Fiero rad.
Wiring the computer to the car
Custom motor mounts

Just a few things to think about.

Thanks "jdinner"
What do you mean "shifting the transmission?"
The rest is all customizable

You will need to modify the cables and levers to work from the forward side of transmission and not the rearward side.

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.
