still pondering... what o you guys think about the 3800sc? is there much work involved in mounting that one in? also will it bolt up to my auto tranny i got now? Just been doing alot of reading and it looks like the 3800sc will give me better 0-60 times than the N*. plus the upgrades are simple and cost efficient to get more hp/tq out of the 3800

Definitely my favorite engine. The damn thing is damn near bulletproof. I know of quite a few of non sc models with over 300k on them and still running fine.

When I do my swap this is definitely the engine I will use.

Your auto tranny will bolt right up, but you will need a diff flywheel. Good luck.

I have had my 3800 SC installed for a while now and LOVE it. I used the Fiero 5 speed so I won't be much help. In regards to the install, I made the front motor mount and the dog bone. Fairly easy stuff, with the right tools. Just a few years ago I had a 66 GTO that ran 13 flat in the 1/4. That was with a 389 tri power. If the seat of my pants remembers correctly, the Fiero will take her by a long shot

You will most likely want to use the 4T65E-HD motor that came stock with the motor. You can buy a limitid slip differential to do 2 wheel burnouts (for better 0-60ft times), you can still add a shift kit, and the PCM has lightning fast shifts compared to ours. I don't think any manual could shift as fast. I've done everything + power steering installed for right about $6000.
