To mis-quote Wimpy, "I'll gladly repay you Tuesday for a CHEESY-burger today".
I like your Cadillac cover and what is below it.

This is the fifth "Kit" I've built. I started with an MG TD replica over 35 years ago, then had a "Marlena", rumble seat, Mercedes replica, two Porsche Speedster replicas, one I still have for sale, and now this Diablo.
I was just hoping for a little technical assistance, since I have zero info on this "kit". Others on this site have been very helpful, with extremely detailed information.

THAT'S what building one of these is all about!
You have to make it yourself!
There is no "KIT" in kit car.
This is also why only 3% ever finish building.
You really have to have a lot of skills or be willing to learn them FAST, to finish your Lambo.
Good luck.

I've got a '97 Caddy cover and the bolt holes don't even come close to lining up. I guess I have to Fab a bracket.

Bolt it on using 4 brackets attached to the plenum bolts on your engine.

I guess no one wants to tell me how they attached the 90's vintage, Caddy FI cover to the Fiero motor??

Does anyone know how Fatboyslim attached the Caddy cover to the Fiero V-6?
Looks like he used the original mounting holes on the Caddy cover, but I'm not sure all of them match up with the molts on the intake.
Anyone with any Info on this, I'd greatly appreciate.

Yes and thanks, that cover came off a mid 90's caddy and fits over the motor nicely. the intake you see can be bought at autozone for around $30bucks. Another cool motor cover idea for V8 motors is to actually take off the entire top of a V12 bmw 850 motor and it fits beautifully over a V8 and you can dress it up a bit and even connect the throttle body linkage to the V8 throttle body lnkage so they both move at the same time giving the appearance the motor is an actual V12. It looks so real even close up looking at it looks like a real V12 motor.   ::thumbup
FBS, May I ask how you attached the Caddy cover? Does it bolt up to the stock Fiero intake, or did you have to Fab something?
Thanks again.

Randy, May I ask what kind of CAI that is you're using?
I also have a fiero based Diablo.
Thanks in advance.

Hello Randy my name is Shaune I owned your 6.0 build for a brief period purchased it from a guy in TN. I just sold to recently because I purchased an lp 640 Roadster replica. How much did the car originally sell for, just out of curiosity. You can email me directly at lambobuild33@aol.com
