Congratulations on your choice and good luck with the work.  This thread is here to help people thinking about the northstar/manual conversion.

Update on the Fiero coolant temperature gage mounting location.  I finally got around to checking it and I did mount it in the EGR system.
Itís on this page:

Instead of relocating it, you could always just tee off the TB coolant line, and run it through the egr passage....  Just a thought.

Hi Rob, are you looking for a V6 Shortstar? I have one or two kicking around that I'm not going to use anymore.

Aaron, what clutch did you use? I know you got the steel flywheel from CHRFab, but why did you not select a McLeod clutch that Alan also has available. I am sourcing the flywheel and clutch assembly for my 4.6/88GT and am undecided on the Spec stage II, Spec stage III or a McLeod from Alan. (I also bought the C950 from Alan)

I used a Ram HD clutch for one reason.  It is totally drivable.  It drives like a stock clutch but has a much harder clutch feel.  I wanted my car to be drivable in traffic.

Next time I change my clutch Iím going to try the Spec flywheel and stage 3K (now that they have one thatís streetable) clutch so that I can compare and report.

As far as I know Alanís McLeod clutch is for the S10 (truck) transmission that he uses and I wasnít sure it would work with the Getrag 282 transmission.  I didnít want to gamble with it.  Maybe it will work, I didnít even look into it only because I donít know anything about McLeod.

Make sure, if you are going to get your flywheel from Alan that itís the one for the Fiero and not the one for the S10.

I have the Spec Aluminum Flywheel and the spec Stage 3 clutch. The swap is all done , just need the suspension on. I beleive I am the first to use the Spec flywheel on a northstar thus far... The flywheel is really nice , but pricey @ $400 + shipping Plus Brokerage fees. IT was close to $1000 for the Combo clutch and flywheel.

I drove it all summer, itís a wild ride.  Lots of power, handles well, itís a good combination, but hard to explain.  Iíll have another video in the spring after the snow is gone.  I need to put the car on a serious diet though.  Going to try and get it down to 2400 lb.
