Been lurking/studying for well over a year now. Purchased my fiero last summer and have been slowly rebuilding/repairing it to be a half-way decent car. After several months of asking people to keep an eye out for 3800 n/a and SC cars that have been wrecked, I recently found a (deep breath) ROLLED buick park avenue ultra for 400 dollars. The engines running well, and now pulled from the car and i'm now prepping the build.

Heres my plan so far, I have a spare fiero engine cradle for the garage build.

WCF engine and trans mount brackets. and dogbone brackets.
Axles pieced together with store-bought axles (can i really use the driver 125c fiero axle with my 4t65e-hd?)
86-87 4-cyl throttle cable
stainless fuel hoses(if affordable, will be piecing together myself)
Stock park avenue exhaust manifolds (exhaust is not my strong suite, requires much more studying)
PCM and wiring: PCM will probably be sent off, but i really want to have full tuning control myself.

Being poor as hell, i would really appreciate any advice, i'll probably be asking tons of questions here.

Can not use store bought axles as all makers r different and nothing ever matches. Use OEM axles to build the Pass side axle. Yes to tge stock auto Fiero axle.

Save your money and buy a good mig lewder and make all your own mounts, brackets and exhaust. When you are done you will have what you need for less then buying it premade and still have a nice mig.
Study the diagrams and make your own harness then just get some one on here to program the PCM to the specs you want. Dan

Thanks for the reply. By store-bought, i meant not used, but pieced together from other axles, (chevy beretta + fiero manual passenger axle, swapping out the bearings, i did some research)

Will aftermarket axles not work? I want good, new bearings with good, new grease.

Many of us Fiero owners have found that the original bearings are better quality than new replacement bearings.

Beretta combo rarely works. I use the cavi 4t45 axles myself.

Alright...One more time....Use only stock OEM axles to build Pass side axle not aftermarket junk axles. Just clean out old grease and add new if u want new grease. Stock OEM axles r built 100 times better then aftermarket axles. I build the axle for the Pass side if u need one built.
