Is there anywhere I could buy a motor mount swap kit for 3800 Sc to 88 fiero cradle? I have everything needed to get started such as the 88 cradle, 5spd Getrag, L67 ect.. This would sure speed things up and avoid changing things later. I would like to just get it right the first time and have the motor and tranny sitting perfectly. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in Advance.

Mount the tranny on stock mounts.
Attach the engine.
Level the unit and set square to cradle.
Fabricate two engine mounts, one to front cradle cross member, the other to the rear corner of cradle.

Fierorog on this forum for engine bracket.
Rodney Dickman for poly replacements mounts. Stock Fiero rubber mounts are not recommended.

As nosrac stated, don't use the stock mounts, they are only good for mock-up. All mounts should be poly.

Does your poly mount bolt up with Fierorog 3800 SC engine bracket for the 88 cradle?

All my mounts are poly and are a different design from Fierorog's. The Brand-X mounts are a proven set of mounts that have been around for years and have been installed time and time again. I bought the business, original prototypes, fabrication jigs, etc. from FieroX (Ryan).

I can't say my mounts work with Fierorog's mounts because I don't know anyone who has mixed the two sets together.

I'd be happy to provide you with my full set of mounts when they are ready but if you choose to go with Fierorog it is your decision.

Either way, wish you good luck on your build and I can't wait to see another 3800 on the road.
