Hey guys, just picked up an 86 Fiero Aero 4 cyl, 5 speed yesterday and I love it. Just had to bleed the clutch and now she's running like a champ!

However, I used to own an 84 and for some reason I'm missing the same experience driving it as compared to the 86. In part, it's probably due to the 84 having that straight up and down shifter, while the 86 has a "kink" to it. Does anyone know if it's possible to swap the 84 shifter to an 86? Or are there short shift kits that'll do the job? Just curious, thanks!

Just remove the shift surround, remove the clip on the lever pivot point and swap them out. I have an 84 lever on my 87. There may be a small spring just below the pivot point that helps the lever move back to the center position, but it's not a necessity.
