  1. Northstar Fiero + CRHFAB 272 cams with Misfires and stalls

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I have one of my customers LS1 PCM'd Northstar's in a Fiero that would stall and misfire at operating temp. I think I got all of the stalling issues out of the car. Big cam tuning requires more fuel at idle. I have the car set for E10% stoich (14.1 to 1) but that may not be enough. Some...

  9. Custom Exhaust Manifolds and down pipe... for the 4.9

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    I am not sure if you guys can use this or not, but it might be a great option if you can find a way to get it to work in the caddy, would have to chop it at hte downpipe and convert it, or end up with a caddy with Side Pipes like a corvette. The pics are from this thread...

  11. Sad Caddy's in the background.

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    This was a pic of a Fiero that managed to get spun out, 180 degrees and wiped out the rear quarter. But of special note is the Caddy Graveyard in the background. Many wrecked caddys had there drivetrains reborn to live on in Fiero's. If someone wants I can post the loaction of the yard...
  12. Head gasket compressed thickness

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    HI! I had a '95 Northstar with 282 5 speed running in my Fiero for about two years. It ran 12.86 @ 106 and put down 255 rwhp through 2" dual (too small, I know) exhaust. Then it cracked a liner. I procured another block; installed time serts; had it honed poorly; put it together and it...
  13. Cadillac enthusiast of a sort

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    :lildevil: OK - we've had Cadillaces in the family on and off for years, a '75 Eldorado Convertible, a Cimarron, several of the newer Deville's up to the latest, the '03. But my primar interest is in researching the 4.1/4.5/4.9 aluminum engines for a Fiero swap. Seems I can't sell the race car...
  14. What is the Factory Timing for a 93 Eldorado

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    Just a simple quick easy question. What the heck is the factory timing for a 93 Eldorado with a 4.9 Is it set the same way as my Fiero. Short A and B from the ALDL interface, hook timing light to #1, I assume. (Fiero you hook it to 2 different cylinders and average the 2) It dawned on me, I...
  15. I want a DIC (get your mind out of the gutter) :D

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    :D OK DIC, Driver Information Center. It is the thing you guys take for granted that displays cool info, like fuel mileage, and trouble codes, remaining fuel all that sort of cool stuff. So can anyone tell me if the unit in the caddy is a self contained setup, IE, I could find a wrecked...
  16. converible cimarron

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    edited// I am surprised that no one has taken a j-body convertible, such as a chevy caviler, and putting the cimarron parts (front clip, interior) to have a poor man's convertible Cadillac. I have seen a pontiac fiero with a N* planted firmly inside. I would assume if N* fits in a fiero then it...

    Well I was doing some winter prep on the car today. So I pulled the thermostat out and poured in a 3 crushed cooling system tabs. I put the thermostat back in and topped up the cooling system. I took the car for a drive and had the scanner in my hand while I drove. Temp started going up...
