I tried to use the search and find someone else who did this. I am going to change my fuel injection to a carb setup. What do I need to finish this, also any tips on a carb or intake?
Thanks

The Edelbrock & 390 Holley seem the most popular..

Arns85Gt has a lot of experience with the carb set up.

You will want an intake manifold, carburetor, and distributor from one of the following vehicles....

1980-1981 Chevy Citation, Pontiac Phoenix, Olds Omega, or Buick Skylark
.... all these models came with 2.5s and 2.8s like the Fiero



Not as sexy looking as a edelbrock intake and holley carb....
But it will run smooth and fuel effiecient... no carb retuning

A 72 Vega fuel pump will fit and work with a carb. It is a little short, you need a longer hose. The vega had a carb. It was the first car with the pump in the tank. Any year vega, but I had a 72.

If you don't want to drop the tank, a Mallory 3 port bypass regulator works like a charm. No creep and it locks into position at whatever psi you want to run.
