    Hi, I too have a 84 that I am using as donor car. Big problem is that the 84 has the worse wiring harness in the car. I myself swapped out and put in a v6 2.8. I went to the junk yard and stripped the wiring harness for the front, rear and under the dash and changed it with mine. If your willing to doing the wiring however you can put any engine that you would use for any other year in the 84. The engine craddle is the same.

    Do i have to modify the wiring harness for my 84? Or do the sockets all fit ... or do i have to cut each and every wire and then solder them together..

    It's better to just rip out a 2.8 harness from the junkyard.

    I'm sure GTFiero would have a heart attack if he even considered this... but I know of a few Fieros with DSM engines in them too.. (talon, eclipse, etc)
    one is in a Ferrari kit located in Ottawa ON, though I've only been told about this, I haven't seen it for myself.

    my personal favorites are the 3800 and 3.4 DOHC.

    and with any engine swap, you should do a brake upgrade as well.. fiero brakes are terrible, not to mention pathetically small, which becomes very obvious if you upgrade to larger wheels.

    that would depend on where you live.. no sense me recommending a place in Canada if you live in California or something..
