At least with a 2.8 dont have to rip half the damn harness out.from my take you use the stock tranny run your v6 cooling pipes the driver side remove the front shock drop the front trunk pan.
With the work that it would take to do a 2.8L swap you could have a 3800SC. While the 3800 would bolt to your auto the best reliability would be to use the 4T65eHD trans that goes with the 3800.
Both swaps would require new mounts, new wiring, and the running of new gas, water and trans lines. With the 2.8L the harness would not fit the 84. With the 3800 Timm Bacher, James Brown or Joe Welsh could make a new swap harness for you. Engine and trans mounts can be purchased from West Coast Fiero or Fierorog. I've never heard of removing the shock to change a radiator hose. If your front hoses are in good shape they stay put with a swap. The stock radiator may work but just ask around if anyone has experience with this. If you are looking for some real excitement the 3800SC is one engine that will provide it. The 4.9L is also a nice swap and easier to do.
