Ok, so dumb question... I'm swapping in a 3.4 SFI, and am hooking up coolant lines. Problem is I've had the car apart so long I don't remember how the crossover pipe is supposed to fit in. Where are the mounting locations for it, and if possible, can someone supply pictures? Does it go under the AC brackets or through them? Thanks in advance.

I believe there are three mounts on it. One goes on a transmission mount bolt, the other end around the AC bracket and the other one closer to the transmission mount I think. Larry

That's kind of what I'm thinking, but it's really hard to get back in there to see without having to drop the whole cradle again.

If you've got the Fiero upper AC bracket bolted on, it will have to be unbolted to make room.
The pipe looks like it'll go, but it won't.

Which year and transmission? There are at least 4 different variations of the crossover pipe depending upon year and transmission type. I swapped mine out this morning. I had previously deleted the ac, so the entire operation took me less than an hour.

I can also tell you that they tend to crack at the support brackets and make for a very hard to find leak. Larry
