Purple Reign seems to be mia, FieroX is getting out of the car business, WCF has great products, but have dealt with them in the past (long wait) and just want to find something less expensive.

I have an L32 2004 3800sc motor and Getrag 5spd.

Anyone selling mounts for about $300 or less?

I have some FieroX mounts, new in the box, never used, that I may be selling soon.

Cool, let me know if they become for sale.

Do you know if anyone is currently making conversion mounts?

Unless Fieroking wants to make me some...

I'll probably buy my 3800 and F23 brackets from FIEROFLYER.

Hopefully you and I can add a couple 3800's to Fiero Fest by next August.

Hey, if you are considering a swap, consider buying a welder and making your own. You will need it for the exhaust, mounts, any rust repair, etc, etc, etc, etc (you get the point) I promise you will not regret it.

Fully agree purchasing a good MIG and making all your own mounts, brackets and exhaust is the way to go. Dan

I mig and tig weld, but im being lazy and want to just buy them. Also, i want to get the "Swapping" part done fast and have everything ready to bolt on. Im 2 semesters away from my AWS certification. But I dont think im going to stay with it as a career.

Ps: i use a miller 252 for my mig welding.

So if going down the route of making my own mounts, where do i start? Pics? measurements? Etc.

edit: typos

For swaps using the Fiero manual it is easy just bolt the engine and tranny together and set on the cradle. Attach the factory Fiero tranny mounts in place and line the engine up level and straight. Set the engine mount you are using in place and make a bracket that bolts to both the engine and mount you have. I use 1/4 inch plate for strength and prefer to have my engine mount bracket bolt to both sides of the engine just like the factory 3800SC brackets. Dan
