Depending on the year, FWD and RWD have different head gaskets with different sized openings to change the dynamic of coolant flow. They all standardized around 2001 or so. You may have to do a quick head gasket to prevent the head from developing hot spots once you change the coolant flow routing.
There are a couple members on here that have done 2200 SFI / 2.2 swaps. The one that comes to mind has a 2200 Fiero as well as a Quad 4 Fiero. I can't remember his name on here.
I'm just wondering if anyone might know of a build thread or something for that 2.2 swap. I have a remanufactured 2.2 that I just bought to get my '01 S-10 running before my old ('91)S-10 quit. I'm already starting to think about swapping a 4.3 into the truck, but I won't just throw the 2.2 away. So if I can put the 2.2 into one of these cars, that'll be my excuse! And since the 2.2 makes about 25 more ponies than the stock 4 banger, it's obviously an upgrade! Pretty sure it's lighter too, what with the aluminum head and all.
