I have 2 threads out there and would like to delete them and go from here. Is it possible to delete them?

I think Im at the final stage of my swap and have a few questions.

1. Should I run my fuel tank vent to the large vacuum on the throttle body?

2. Can I run the drivers side coolant hose to the drivers side neck on the engine and pass side to the other?

3. I dont have a connector for cruise cntl on my harness. I guess I wont have cruise cntl? Is it possible to have cruise cntl with a swap?

4. Where do I run the 2 old vent lines near the dog bone to?

Are there any other things I should consider?

I couldn't do this without your guys help. I really do appreciate all the help I've gotten!!!!

No, if anything you want to run it to your air filter tube / cold air intake tube. I typically vent to atmosphere.

Yes. You will then fill easiest by removing the driver side hose, putting a long funnel into the hose, and filling with coolant from there.

Cruise is a tough deal on a fiero. There is extensive information on cruise on GMTuners.com

Part of the stock evap and cruise system. Most likely not needed if you are not using either of those systems.

What then do I do with the large vent on the throttle body?

I still have 2 connectors that I dont know what to do with.

Thanks Flyer, you've been a savior on this project. Can you tell me where the coolant sensor plugs in? Also, I have a large nipple coming out of the throttle body, Is this for valve cover vent or crankcase vent? Should I just plug it?

Coolant sensor is on the intake under the thermostat housing you might have a two pin one there if so you need to get a 3 pin sensor.
The 3/8 vacuum fitting on the throttle body can be used for the brake booster or just capped to seal it off.

I pluged up all the vents etc and tightened up the cradle bolts. Few other things. Lot less vibration but its there when I give it gas.
