Hello all. Well i dont know if anyone is around my area and has the time but i will need help to get my baby running again. my main daily driver needs to much $ to get it inspected. i need help pulling the motor out of a beretta and putting it into my fiero so i have a car to get to work. if anyone is willing to help please post. if money is needed im going to have to hold off for a while. i will be starting my new job the 28th. my old job drained me of time in my life and had me living pay check to pay check. so till i get my bills back up after starting my new job then i will have money. but if someone out there would like to kick back and have fun helping me out i would be very greatfull!!!!! i have all the tools and the fiero is in my garage with a paved floor. but room is kind of tight on the sides due to a 5 car garage filled with classic cars. i will be open this weekend till next week.
pulling motor out of beretta pulling motor out of fiero pulling 4 speed off fiero motor and putting it on beretta motor (because i have no $ for cables for the 5 speed) putting the beretta motor into the fiero brain box out of beretta into fiero (not a big deal just yet unless you know how to do it)
thats about all i really need. i know its asking alot for free help but i am broke as heck and really need the help. i live in a small town called jersey shore PA 17740.
Does the fiero already have a 2.8 in it? Getting another fiero engine would probably make more sense than trying to adapt the Beretta engine, didn't know that they were a direct swap. What else does the car need?

yes the fiero has the motor still in it. as for a direct swap i do have to swap the computers out to make this motor work. i bought the beretta complete and know the history of it and aolso know there is fewer the 10,000 miles on it plus it has many many goodies in it. also i got it for a really good price. so i plan on doing a complete swap. no head,intake or any of that changes at all. im sure if people can put a v8 or even a 3.8 motor in a fiero im sure this swap wouldnt be much differant but at the same time much much easier then the 3.8 or v8 due to a bolt right up. for what ive read all i need is a computer change? if im wrong please tell me before i make a huge mistake!
