Hey, if you are considering a swap, consider buying a welder and making your own. You will need it for the exhaust, mounts, any rust repair, etc, etc, etc, etc (you get the point) I promise you will not regret it.

I mig and tig weld, but im being lazy and want to just buy them. Also, i want to get the "Swapping" part done fast and have everything ready to bolt on. Im 2 semesters away from my AWS certification. But I dont think im going to stay with it as a career.
Ps: i use a miller 252 for my mig welding.
So if going down the route of making my own mounts, where do i start? Pics? measurements? Etc.

For swaps using the Fiero manual it is easy just bolt the engine and tranny together and set on the cradle. Attach the factory Fiero tranny mounts in place and line the engine up level and straight. Set the engine mount you are using in place and make a bracket that bolts to both the engine and mount you have. I use 1/4 inch plate for strength and prefer to have my engine mount bracket bolt to both sides of the engine just like the factory 3800SC brackets. Dan
