"Typically we have used LS engines on our builds however at times when sourcing isn't available we use an 88 Fiero 2.8L (V6) engine".

Good thing for them that there is still a good steady supply of 88 V6 Fieros, those darn LS engines are getting harder and harder to find.

 "For sale Rare 88 Fiero!! Great opportunity!! Early enough in the build process to add your personal touches!! V12, LS, or 3800sc. Wide track suspension and so on....  Extra 1987 fiero parts included!! Clean title!!   :LL:

Neither the Diablo or Murcielago use a flat plane crank. Just FYI  ::thumbup

There are several YouTube videos of Mercedes V12 engines with equal length headers. They sound wonderful but I suspect the audio has been replaced with the sound of an formula car. Granted the Mercedes would actually sound like a  ::LAMBO2, it would be wonderful for our world of replicas!

Why is it important to use LS engines? why not any other. and also is it possible to replace the exsiting engine with a better one when needed? I am a surgeon and and willing to send aroung 60-70K for a nice replice WITH the engine sounds
Mikeify, it is not important to use an LS engine, I personally recommend against it. I just thought it comical that they were clueless enough to say that an '88 Fiero was plentiful where the most common engine on the planet was scarce. A few more dollars and I could be interested in your build, but realize something when you say "With the engine sounds". A cross journal linked American V8 will never sound like a flat plane V12. The easiest way to do that is with a BMW V12 and the easiest way is not easy. Add $10,000 to the build and subtract 200 horsepower.

Seems like we go down this same road every year.  Many on this very forum disregard our warnings and boldly go where many have gone before.

Lots of people get into replica builds thinking they can be finished in 2-3 months.  Not surprising that they fall for scams like this.

15K is absolutely ridiculous. For that money you are being scammed. For example body 5k, Paint 3K, Interior 5K, Engine and Trans built 5K. And that does not cover all the miss parts and labor. I have 8K just in parts on the Reventon I am building.
