Good News for those interested in this swap. I tacked some temporary motor mount onto the sub frame I stuck the motor back into the car to check out the fit & location. To my elated surprise not only does the motor fit in the compartment perfectly but believe or not the new CV joints from the 2012 Cruze fit into the hubs of the Fiero without any alterations needed what-so-ever. I mean they are the right length & everything. All I have to do now is set up the permanent motor mount & then course all the other hook up but that just save me a couple grand right there.
Seriously? I gotta see pictures of the axle fitment and everything.
