just curious if anyone has someone to recommend in the area. i hate starting new threads for small questions like this but doing a search isn't yielding much...

i can tow the car within reason to a location. I'm just looking for a basic install with any seriesII 3800 sc motor. don't care about miles on the motor as long as it drives and i can enjoy it for a few months till i finish up the projects i have going on with my house then i can rebuild/upgrade etc. not looking to spend top dollar for it just as basic as can be for now. it wouldn't need a trans as i would like to keep the four speed manual the 2.8 is bolted to.

thanks

I might have an opening this winter. Let me know your budget and other details such as exhaust expectations, mods, etc.

exhaust... ummm ??? lol duct tape and jb weld would be fine by me lol dark last summer i built an 800hp twin turbo camaro (my eighth one).... I'm just burned out of turning a wrench and the house we just moved into is awesome but I'm doing a kitchen remodel... plus a three yr old plus work... i just don't have time.

what ever would get the car up and running with the motor the cheapest would be my budget for now. not trying to low ball anyone just want something to play with till i finish up projects and can get free time to rebuild it down the road with performance.

I see motors for $300 to $500 on craigslist so if this kind of swap can be done in a weekend or so i was thinking the $1000 to $1500 range to pay for it would be fair( if I'm way off... sorry just throwing a number out there) for a down and dirty swap.

The fiero is an 85 2.8 manual and very clean. only has 90k original miles on it. so rusted bolts shouldn't be that bad on the car.

Best thing is to just do it yourself. It don't work to pay someone else for their time and have them cut corners.

If you do decide to move forward I have some exhaust options for sale.

Want an inexpensive swap? The Cadillac 4.9L /auto swap is relatively cheap. Used engines are not expensive and the swap uses many standard GM parts including axles. The swap gives 275 ft lbs of torque and 200HP, far better than stock performance and about 30hwy mpg. .
