   Honor above all else.  I'm Fine with that,  Just need to catch one before it goes to Pull apart.  preferably one that can't or won't be saved. What ya think about the buick engine, cool huh 300hp pretty easy and so light.

Do you get all the ancillaries with it?  How do mounts and engine match to the Fiero.  I'm not at all familiar with it.

We need a filter canister for a V6.  Anyone have one to donate or sell?

Air filter canister, maybe?  Left front corner of the engine bay.

Ok.  For some reason, my mind was stuck on the cruise canister.

I contacted FIC about cleaning or replacing the injectors and they said that for 6 and cleaning the cold start injector and rail would run about $210.  The injectors and fuel rail are full of oxidation, possibly from ethanol gas.

Mike determined that the injectors are from the early 90's era 3800 series engines which were in Camaros, Cutlasses, Rivieras, and others.  The car has an adjustable pressure regulator, so we don't know what pressure and flow we have.

We will need the Board of Directors to respond on this thread with either approve or not approve of the repairs, currently the total is around $225 but we are seeking out other options that could lower the repair cost this is dependent on part availability and the supplier.

I just found a set of remanufactured, flow matched injectors at US Carburetors for $95 with free shipping and 1 yr.  warranty with receipt.

wow, the prices have certainly gone up.... I took my 2.8 injectors and had them cleaned for $110.00...... Is there that much difference between the engines? Otherwise my vote is for the remanufactured injectors.

Thanks, Scott

The FIC injectors would have been rebuilt, too.  Not new.

I just picked up some throttlebody cleaner and some carb and choke cleaner and see what I can do with the rail. 

I vote to go ahead and purchase replacement injectors and to authorize Pat to order them.  There are only 10 left at the $95 price, so we need  to act quickly.

I vote for these.
I don't need a navigation system. I never get lost because everyone always tells me where to go.

Don't forget... That is supposed to be a 3.4.
Might be a good idea to read the part number off of the original injectors.

We did.  They are from a 3800na, late 80's-early 90's.  It has an adjustable regulator to compensate for mods.  Dave probably got everything tweaked for the build so we're going back with the same injector.
