Thanks so much! Now I just have to get the money to actually shop for a 3.4... that might take a bit.
About ten years ago when I installed a 3.4 OHV in my Fiero, I was able to score a "low mileage" (60,000 - or so they said at the junkyard) 3.4 out of a Camaro for $500.00.
With the cost of the motor plus the necessary gaskets and a couple other small items, I was able to do the swap into my Fiero for just under $800.00 (actually, it was about $780 IIRC). While the motor was out, I took the time to gasket match every intake/exhaust port, took the heads apart and cleaned up the bowls, replaced the old valve springs with new aftermarket springs, added 1.6 roller tip rockers. It was pretty easy, just allow yourself some time (assuming that you already have the tools to do the job!)
