I did not do the initial swap, I got the car and it had 2nd gear start problems along with few other issues, I will post some pics of the throttle cable you. I was suppose to for someone else previously and failed to do so,

seems to be fixed for obdI. I still wonder if it would work for obdII. I believe it would have worked fine if I had not added the wss. I am going to try disconnecting them an see if it still works.
Maybe someday one building an obdII car. can try using the ebtcm and see if it works with obdII the same

This a great build thread. I can't wait to see finished pics of your interior. Those overlays for dash pod are awesome.

thanks, I just been enjoying driving the car, I have few other builds going on and hope to get interior done before end of summer. I have a 1966 triumph gt6 im starting on and got 2 other fieros, Honestly thinking of just dumping one and finish up the 3800sc swap in the other and get rid of it,
I will post pics as progress goes on interior,,

Yeah, that's what I've decided to do as well. I have a new rule, finish the one I am on before starting on something else. Other wise, I never seam to be able to finish a project...

mine has the stock fiero cable with an end that fits the N* Tb crimped on.. I would have probably done it different myself but it has worked for a long time and have other things I would like to change first.
I want to start interior swap and would like to put motor mounts in , right now it is solid mounted..... I worry something is going to break,,, but has not so far. Only problem with upgrading things now means I can not drive it, and I have had a blast driving it, My 3 year old grand daughter demands that it is her car and she loves riding in it as well..

Well with 34k mile on engine and trans it seems the trans is about gone. I was driving home from work in the fiero and it started making some odd sounds.....n best way I could describe it is a garbage disposal chewing on aluminum cans.... it pulls but not like it did and sounds horrific...

To each his own, I guess... It looks like a padded toilet seat to me.

thanks , I did not do the interior on this car, it was done by previous owner, he bought hide of leather and cut them all himself, and done the panels and seats but it is a factory door panel just recovered. He runs an online custom motorcycle seat business. I plan on replacing the panels when I get started on dash swap... my focus has been more on my triumph gt6 swap.. I get new panels done if interested I might sell them to you.

padded toilet seat???? i guess... lol

Someone here told me they were running a 2000 4t80e with the 3.71 fdr on their 94-95 N* without changing the eprom and no issues , I wanted to make sure that was correct while looking for a new trans, but I can not seem to find that. It might have been in p.m.
could anyone else confirm this cause everywhere else says it will not work....

War hammer , everything is out on hold , I am about to get back on the 3800 car and probably do dash swap on it instead not sure,,, I got guages to move by power supply , fuel. temp etc, ,, I'm sure everything will work fine,, later on going to try and find someone to make some professional overlays,,
I got your pm, I don't really have time to make another set but I can give you a list of what to buy and help you with it as much as I can,,, buying the c5 cluster to rip apart is the hardest,part,,,,.
