Now the update for this week--No pictures just a little on what I got done to keep the Thread going. Started off with swapping out the V-6 TB cable with a 88 4 banger TB cable I had laying around since they are a direct fit. Then moved onto connecting up the auto trans lines to the Fiero hard lines in the rear and while under the car added the negavtive battery cable. Then moved onto adding the rear calipers/rotors and hooking up the E-brake cables then followed up by bleeding the rear breaks. I started on mounting the electronic CC but was unsure how long the cable was for it so I stopped that project for now. Next I will be getting the exhaust ready to build and the cutting of the trunk if needed(which looks like it will need to be). The exhaust will use mandrel bends, a stock 3800 CAT and larger muffler to keep it nice an quiet for the owner. Will post up a few pics once I get the parts together for the exhaust and when something changed on the swap.

Update--Finally tracked down a low mileage STOCK 3800 CAT to use with building the exhaust for this car. So I now have all the part to build the exhaust and will be doing so in the next few days. It will consisit of 2.5 inch mandrel bends, stock 3800 CAT and large muffler to keep the car quiet the into some stock mega phone Fiero tips. The exhuast will require the lower trunk to be cut and then filled in. Will post pictures of the parts tomorrow once I get then downloaded onto my computer and uploaded to Photobucket. Had issue with old E-brake cables so a new set was purchased and will be getting changed out this week. Pictures of exhaust parts and build to come soon............

This Thread hasn't been updated is sometime but this swap is complete. The swap was driven out to Cali this past week by myself and Automark on the Forum. The car did great the entire 1500 mile trip with no issues at all. I have some pictures to post of the trip along the way and will do so once they are downloaded.......

What axle parts did you use for the tranny?
I'm doing the swap into an '85 SE manual (not 100% on keeping the manual, might use the auto from donor car)
Donor car is a complete low milage '93 Buick Park Ave Ultra with 3800SC and 4speed auto.
Will be keeping the obdi setup from donor car.

The 93 used a differant trans so the axle setup I used will not work. Hit up search and you will find your answer...
