your best place to ask would be fieroforum.com. thoise guys have done almost any engine swap you can think of. they would be able to give you a quick answer or just do a search and find the answer yourself. that has been asked a few times over there

Texas it sounds to me that you need a harness made up? I thought Loyde from fast fieros did one for you. If he didn't go to fiero.nl and do a search on harness' there is a guy in canada that will build you one for about 300.00 (cheap) campared to 1000. by fast fieros

It's not all that hard to get the engine running as there are very few components that need voltage.
If you don't have a wiring harness, NAERC or Loyde can make you one. But I started with the wiring harness from a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix. This wiring harness has less VATS (Vehicle Anti-Theft System) and is easier to convert for our needs, and was less than $150. Once you have the harness, you will need a PCM...if you are going to use a manual transmission, this needs to be reprogramed to remove the shift information from the original transmission (all series II engines came with automatics). Loyde has them available and pre-programed for $200. shipped. The last thing is to hook up the minimum wiring to run the engine, these include fuel injectors, fuel pump, and the coil and ground wires....then of course, one for the starter.

Getting the engine running was one of the first things I did. It was really easy. If you need more help, email me direct and I will help...I'll even give you my phone number.

I just bought a GM service manual on ebay. Its a 3 volume set. You want the second volume. It's crazy detailed. Like this set. Luckily someone was selling just volume 2.
