Does anybody know which older distributor is the proper donor for this modification?
and BTW, I don't want EFI on this one
The Olds 307 was mentioned, but the following link is to a thread that will shed some light on it all. The Fiero forums in general have a lot of Cad info, including non feedback distributor/carb swap.
