They would look good, but you'll have a helluva time trying to get them to fit. You'd need to have them redrilled to 5x115, and then you've still gotta worry about the backspacing and offset.

Black dipped LTZ wheels look good, and since they're stock wheels, you can probably find them cheap. Plus they're 18s vs the Camaro's 20s (harder to bend)

Yea that's true... maybe get adapters for my 5x 115 to 120. What are the tire sizes on the camaros? I knw 255 will fit cuz that's wat I had.

As for the ltz rims I think they are hideous. I go more for the 5 spoke rims like the camaros or SS. Or the dodge challengers.I rather get 20s to fit my fender spacing that the 8th gens have in the back

True, challenger rims would be a lot easier to fit on. Charger rims as well

Just gotta keep on it. Took me a while to find a set of SS wheels at what I considered a decent price.

Mine were at least 2nd hand. Guy I bought em from had em on an 01.

They are actually very hard to find in my area. I looked every day for 5 months to find a set even listed, let alone affordable.

Trust me it isnt possible to supercharge the 3.5l or 3.9l

The only way that was possible was with a prototype eaton blower with a extended snout that was limited to 5 units made. They stopped production because they extended snout was to weak and kept snapping.

If you can find one they run about $5000 just for the blower and more than likely the fiero guys will beat you too it. They have only seen 1 be sold in the past 5 years btw.
and that doesnt even take into consideration the custom work of getting the superchager mounted,clearing the hood,working, and then the motor tuned.

Or you can go the motor swap route and swap in a early poniac g6 lx9 3.5L. get all the adaptor plates to adapt a 3800 intake on it with a 3800 supercharger.

Iv spent about 6 months researching supercharging this car lol
just dont want you to get your hopes up

The remote turbo setup is the only way to go
