The mounts will be different. Where did the 3.0 come from?

The mounts will be different. If it's in the same family as the 2.8 that was put in the Fiero (60 degree V6), you can use mounts from a V6 fiero. Otherwise, you will probably have to make them, have them made, or see if they match up to another engine that people like to drop in the Fiero, in which case there is probably a kit out there somewhere for it.

A 3.0 what? Engine family is 3.4 single cam and 3.4 twin cam. Nothing else just bolts up. Advice: give up. Anything other than stock requires completely changed harness and trans from a donor Fiero. Probably a month solid of work. Too many v-6 Fieros around to bother.
