Ok, word on the street is that the Solstice, being RWD, has an Ecotec motor with a Corvette tranny. Same 6-speed that's in the F-body (Camaro Firebird) cars as well...
Word on the street is absolutely WRONG.

2.4 liter VVT Ecotec mated to an Aisin 5-speed trans (similar to the one in the Chevy Colorado, apparently, if my insider info is right).

You probably have old info from the original bucket o' parts 2002 concept car that was over-hyped as some supercharged 240 hp with a trailblazer differential and a T-56 (vette) trans. That car did not even have an operating top, a top speed of about 45 MPH (as rumor goes) and was only intended to be a show car for the 2002 NAIAS. Had a strut front suspension, and it was even incorrectly stated as a "Delta" platform vehicle, even though the Saturn ION is FWD with a torsion beam rear suspension. Ch-yah.

It bears resemblance to the production solstice in surface and overall dimensions only. Everything underneath is as different as a Honda S2000 is to a BMWZ4.

Sorry to pop yer bubble.

BTW, an ecotec is a great choice for the Fiero. Any estimates on your anticipated power output?
