I never thought I would consider swapping an engine because it seems like too much work. However, my daughter needs a car to find work(new college grad with a liberal arts degree). Until she can aford the car of her choice, I thought this would be a win-win. As soon as she is done driving it, rebuild the engine and put it in a Fiero. It is an Automatic
Since I would never have thought of doing it...............I have therefore never done it. I have a few questions and yes I have looked at some of the post here about it.
1. Is this a good price for a running car with a L67 in it. Exterior seems to be flawless, have not seen the interior yet?
2. Will the cradle need to be modified. I will probably put it in one of the 1988's?
3. What is involved in a swap of this sort in other than Fiero parts required.?
4. Can the Grand Prix transmission be used.?
5. Are there easier swaps than this one?
