I need to know what to keep off my 2.8 motor for my 3800 swap if anything at all? I am going to scrap the engine or transmission soon(or put it up in the mall for parts) so I have room in my garage and don't want to get rid of something I may need. Thanks

I don't think there's really anything you could want from that 2.8 that will be useful to you on a 3800.

But, you may want to keep the 2.8 Holley Throttle Body and throw it up on eBay. Also, if your Fiero is an 87-88 V6, then you should probably also keep the intake plenum and put that on eBay too.

...and the oil pan, exhaust crossover pipe, flywheel (again, if '88), and all sensors.

Are you saying that the oil pan and the 25+ year old sensors will work with a late 90's early 2000's motor?
The flywheel would need resurfacing, no? I would just assume buy a brand new flywheel for the swap.

No he is saying those are things i should sell on ebay since there is nothing i should need for the swap.

Ohhh ok, thanks for the clarification.

I'll be rounding up my old 2.8 parts once it warms up a bit

How do they differ from the 1986 version?

The 87-88 V6 intake plenum is engraved with "Fiero" where as the 85-86 intake plenum just has a sticker on it (looks cheap). It's a "pretty" upgrade for 85-86 V6s...

Well, there isn't a huge market for it... I would check to see what other items are selling for.

Also, if you want to save the valve covers, they are really popular with the 3rd generation Camaro / Firebird group. They have 2.8 and 3.1 liter engines in their cars, and they usually upgrade to the Fiero valve covers.

what not to scrap ?....the oil pan and front cover may be usefull to someone doing a 3.4 camaro swap ? AC brackets, alt brackets, exhaust manifolds,. the "Heads" for a 3.4 swap (rebuildable cores) , pretty much everything EXCEPT the 2.8 bottom end. I will be putting a perfect running 1987 2.8 and auto trans "up for sale" myself, although they are "Hard to sell".
