Just build with the Fiero Getrag as FOY boat sailed a long time ago. This way you only NEED engine bracket. I would also recommend poly mounts from RD. You can upgrade to the f23 after you grenade the fiero getrag..lol. If you are not clutch dropping in first at 3K+ rpm you will be fine for a good while.

For the Fiero V6 5 speed Getrag you need a clutch for this tranny as the 4 speed one will rub.
I thought FOY was banned and out of business long ago hard to believe he is still trying to sell stuff

Visit spec website to get right clutch. I recommend 3+ for whatever trans your using. You could also convert to the 4t65e auto as you could probably get one cheaper than the cost of the clutch. It is made for the engine so it's much stronger better geared and also can be upgraded.

FOY is banned from PFF not ebay or Craigslist.
Since you are the only one that makes f23 mounts for correct bellhousing. Why hasn't Fierorog started doing those? It seems there is reasonable demand for them so I'm not sure why someone doesn't mass produce them.

Breaking your Transmission is NO fun. Burnouts and launching from a dig are fun, with the Auto you can throw the hammer down in any gear and not worry about it.

With the Fiero manual trans you can drive it normally and not have any issues but just don't succumb to the powah of the dark side.

Now with the F23 you probably won't break it but it is NOT exactly geared for the 3800 power band.
