Alright, I'm really new to PFF at this point, so I thought I'd ask someones advice for my project. I bought an '84 Fiero on Craigslist for 600 dollars with the intention of swapping in a v6. Naturally, I chose the 3.4 pr because parts from a 2.8 would bolt right up to it. I installed a COMP-CAMS PERFORMANCE CAM KIT (260H), an '85 Fiero oil pan(2.8), an '85 Fiero timing chain cover(2.8), an i moved the starter to the other side of the engine. I'm wanting to run a carburetor and distributor ignition system on it to that I can keep things simple. I know that Edelbrock makes an intake for this engine that you can mount a four barrel, but could I use an intake from a carbureted 2.8 S-10? Or would that be too restrictive? Also, will the 3.4 flexplate bolt up to my automatic's torque converter? any advice would be very helpful.

Welcome to PFF!

You need to ask your questions in the area called 'Technical Discussion and Questions'. I think you will get more responses.....also do some searching for V6's into 84 Fieros to find out more about the wiring.....it's a little more involved.

Thanks for the replies! I'll make sure to move this thread to the technical discussion. Also, Thanks for the link TopNotch. I think it will prove extremely useful once I dig into the wiring.
