I have been looking for some time now and I don't recall seeing any lambo reps with the 3.4L DOHC for drivetrain.

I am setting mine up as a 1993 3.4L DOHC (luminaz34) with 5 sp getrag. I will keep her stock, the engine has 210 HP and I hear if you retard the cam to 13 degrees (I Think) you can pick up another 20-30 hp!! I am chicken to try and do anything to a crate motor except leave it as the factory intended. 210 HP on the fiero/lambo replica should be plenty fast for me. The thing will rev up to 7500 RPM, and should have a pretty exotic sound.

Well I am off to try and re-smog in the morning, if that happens I will drive it like it is for a few weeks and then pull the engine. My main goal is to be ready for the Knotts Show in April 08!

There is a ton of write-ups on this swap over at Pennocks, but if anyone here has personal knowledge give me a shout, and if anyone wants to come to Cali to lend a hand feel free!!

Do they check to see if you swapped your motor after two years or do they just smog it again?
Congratulations BTW.

Jim, I will have to smog again in two years, the only difference is that I will have to go to the referee for the smog legal engine change. My hope is to get the swap done in six months time, then I have the other 18 months to refine the swap before seeing the ref.

On another note that gal is about a two hours drive, I am not sure the overall cost is worth the parts I need, I just wished she were around the corner, LOL, LOL. I would love to pick it up but we'll have to see.

THANK YOU!

Here is a video of this thing finally running, One of the main issues was the crank sensor wires were reversed! No wonder it couldn't find # 1 when it needed to.
