I acquired this crate LQ1 engine from another forum member a while back for a project that never materialized. It took me the better part of a year to track down the manifolds and other unique parts that fit this version of the LQ1, because it is the 96-97 model year 3.4 DOHC which had different heads than the earlier 3.4 DOHC engines.

The core engine itself is brand new - it has never been run. You can see the factory GM assembly lube on the cams in some of the pictures as well as the spotless intake and exhaust valves.

What parts are used are the exhaust manifolds, intake, throttle body, EGR valve, fuel rails and injectors, valve covers, and exhaust downpipe section (minus the cat converter which the yard cut off). The rear exhaust manifold's A.I.R. tube (for the SMOG pump) was broke off when it was pulled from the parts car but the front manifold's A.I.R. tube is intact. I suppose anyone doing a Fiero swap probably won't need the A.I.R. parts so they can be removed and the holes for them plugged. The EGR tube is hard to see but it is present. I tested all 6 injectors and they all work (bench test).

I hung a brand new remanufactured Duralast alternator (I have the box and receipt for it) on it as well as a used ignition coil pack assembly. Not in the picture is the water pump pulley which I think I have somewhere (I will have to look), but if I can't find it, you should have no problem locating once since you can use one from any LQ1 engine.

I'm asking $1000.00 for the whole package. Might be able to personally deliver it if the distance is not too far and you pay for fuel and food. I might also be able to ship via freight - but you will have to foot the bill and you will also have to assume all responsibility if something happens to it during shipping since getting freight companies to pay a shipping damage claim is next to impossible these days.

Let me know if you are interested via PM or email.

I forgot to mention that prior to installing this engine into your Fiero, you will need to put new intake and exhaust gaskets (as well as a thermostat and other cooling system related gaskets and o-rings) on it. The manifolds are just "hung" on it for taking pictures and to make sure I had all the necessary mounting hardware and fasteners.

What a deal. $1000 is seriously cheap considering it's a fully assembled long block. For those concerned, the fact that it's a 96-97 motor doesn't really change much if you don't want it to, the 91-93 wiring will work just fine.

My Dad has expressed interest, after being directed to this thread.

Any thoughts on cost to deliver or ship to Minnesota? (55020) We'll throw a party in your honor if you make the drive!

Is this true? I can't remember. I had a Fiero with a 93 TDC in it that developed a cracked cylinder before I got it. I have all the wiring, ECM, exhaust, AC, ect to install it.

The images must be huuuuge. Either that or your server or connection is acting up.
I'm on cable and I can't get the images to fully load after several tries.

I'm deep into another project so I don't think I'm going to be able to make the drive to MN to deliver it to you right now. However, I'm checking freight shipping costs to your ZIP code and will let you know what those are once I have them.

My web server might be acting up. It has a habit of doing that during peak traffic times. Retry again in a while and see if you can get them to load. If not, shoot me an email at: sp1@gmtuners.com and I'll just directly email you the pics.

This 96-97 LQ1 I'm selling can be used with ANY 1991-97 3.4 DOHC/TDC computer. However, using it with an earlier system may require custom tuning work and some wiring changes to your harness.

For those who may be new to the forum, one of the best parts of this swap is that you can use the factory trans and engine mounts. At its core, the 3.4 block is the same as the 2.8 block, so the motor / trans will bolt in place of your tired, ol' 2.8L V6. On my 88 coupe, all I needed was a 88 V6 motor mount bracket and it bolted right up to the cradle. I even used the Isuzu 5 speed, no issues. I had the same year engine in my car, and I wired mine up as a 91 OBD I motor and only had to change out a few sensors/connectors. Made my own harness and had Ryan re-flash the ECM. Motor was a lot of fun. Went from 98 hp to 215 hp. The motor pulls real strong from 6000 to 7200 rpm, and wow does it sound good.

You can look for my old build threads using the search.

Trade you a 4.9 front clip for it, I'll make the drive

Can you call me. Need to ask you couple or many many questions? My race car had early motor now, so you can probably figure out some of the questions. But now has large crack in block.

Thanx
