I decided to try to use the 3.4 intake and TB with my swap, but the TB accepts a different type of connector on the cable than the Fiero TB. I don't have a F-body throttle cable lying around, so before I buy one, I just wanted to ask, is it long enough?? and Are there any other issues with addapting it?? Of course, I am always open to other solutions as well. Thanks.

The F-body throttle cable will be very short. It only has to go from the bellhousing area to the throttle body, where as the fiero it has to go through the passenger compartment and then into the engine bay.

If the stock V6 throttle cable is too short, then the 88 4cyl throttle cable is about 1 foot longer.

Have you tried to see if there's any way to use pieces from the Fiero's throttle body onto the Camaro throttle body? Like the mounting bracket? I don't have one in front of me, but it should just be bolted on...
