The only reasonable manual transmissions are the F23 and F40 for those engines. It would suck to blow up your Fiero trans as soon as you get on it or spend $6K on making the NSX work and still have issues.
I would go with the F23 if I were doing a manual.

A few years back I did a 3800SC swap and the guy insisted that he keep the Getrag. A month later, he split the trans case into shreds on a WOT shift. He replaced it then split the case again but this time in his driveway. That transmission was designed for a 2.8L and not for a 3800. application. What Nosrac has said x 2.
As for Intense Racing, they have been around a long time selling 3800 upgrade parts. While we have good reports on them, I lean towards ZZ Performance for my 3800 parts as they have a wider selection..

They're alright now.. after Scott Cook sold it off. I wouldn't use them prior to him selling out.

They don't carry much that I'd really buy these days, though.

If only somebody made F23 mounts for a 3800SC swap. I'm sure I'm gonna be in the same boat as that guy who destroyed his Getrag.

There is a guy on FB 3800 Fiero page that said he made an extra set. A few guys on here can make them.
Just search around or find a custom shop and make 10 sets. I'm sure you would double your money back.

Btw, I found a co that now makes 3800 specific turbo flanges for the Fiero that is bolt on. I had them make mine and now they are readily available for anyone, so I know it could be done.
