FieroGT3800 is on a distinguished road
Default New Guy, Series I questions, etc.

Hey guys, I'm new here, I frequent fiero.nl as JoeDirt and thirdgen.org as 86BirdSE

I'm converting a 1985 Fiero GT to a series 1 3800. It will be mated to a 5 spd manual. The engine is out of a lo-miles 1989 Rivera. I've picked up a set of roller rockers and plastic intake/ alum.base from a Tuned Port 93 (I think) bonneville. to replace the log on the rivera motor.

Electrical seems to be my biggest nightmare. I'm wondering if anyone has a part number for a pcm and pinouts for something that will work with the type of motor I have. Thanks a bunch!

Are you looking for the Bonneville PCM code for that Engine? I'll be having a peek at mine sometime soon, so I can get a custom burn.

That would be a plus since I need to come up with a custom chip eliminating the automatic tranny controls. Much appreciated!!!

Actually, the 89 motor you're installing isn't a Series1. Series 1 REALLY started in 1992. Welcome! Check out www.L67swap.com , much of their knowledge will apply to you. One of our members has successfully swapped an L67 into a Fiero already

Yes I have, unfortunately I haven't found a suoer charger to put in. I bought this engine from an auto salvage auction for $60. I figure any engine I didn't have to pull under $100 is a good starting point. I also know it ran, unlike a pick-n-pull where you take your chances.

Again thanks for the warm welcome and the info!!

Kewl. Remember, you can't supercharge an N/A 3800.

Well, you can, but the N/A (L27) doesn't have the beefed up parts that an SC'd (L67) does, and thus would not last very long.
