    I'm assuming you mean an L4 since they didn't make a V4... But it's not all that hard... If you just want to go from a 2.5 to a 2.8 or 3.1, it is almost a bolt in deal. The engine will bolt up to the tranny and the cradle (using the V6 engine and tranny mounts). You'll need the engine wiring harness from the V6. You'll need to do some modification and addition of coolant tubes in the engine compartment. You'll need an ECM and radiator from a V6. Make sure these items match your tranny, either auto or manual. If auto, you'll need a radiator with inputs to cool the tranny. Also, the ECM has to match auto or manual. That's about it.

    There is a guy in London, Ontario who swaps V-8s into any fiero for somewhere between 2000-4000 CAN.
    I can dig up his info if your interested.

    You can get an engine and all the stuff needed from Kick Hill if you need an engine. As for putting it together It is not hard at all. Everything is pertty much a direct replacement. You will only need to upgrade a few things. Fuel pump, radiator, ECU, V6 wiring harness, and 2 cradel brackets.
