havin trouble with my fiero

Question

i recently bought a 1988 fiero 2m4 for $400. when i got it i was told that the only thing wrong with it was trash in the gas tank. well i guess you can say i got burned on that deal. shortly after i purchased the car, i dropped the tank (witch took me about 2 hours to find lol) i got all the trash out of the tank and bought a brand new injector for the throttle body. well when i put it all together the wire to the injector didnt get any power. ive replaced the ignition control module and cool packs. i tried to strait wire the injector just to get it running but the damn thing caught on fire! so i dont know what to do.

Okay guys, i think Ive found a way to get my fiero running. the coil packs run off of the ecu, and they work. the ignition runs off of the ecu, and it works. the injector wire runs off of the ecu, and it don't work. well, if i put a carburetor on the stock intake, it will do away with the injector all together. yea, i will loose horse power and fuel millage, but it would run. its gonna suck for a little while because of how slow its gonna be. but still, i will finally be able to drive it. all I've got to do is get a carburetor and a fuel pressure regulator and I've got a running car. when i got the money, i plan to put the fuel injection system back on and fix the problem. also when i start Wyo tech, i plan to put a supercharged 3800 v6 out of the grand Prix gt p. and a Pontiac fiero gt 5 speed tranny in it. also im going to get the body back to spec. and paint it back the original bright ass canary yellow. lol it will be pretty nice when im done with it. i will get some pics on here soon but i have to wait until the snow melts off because it turned to solid ice. lol any ways, if any one sees a problem in my plan to put a carburetor on the fiero, please let me know. thanks to every one that's helped me so far.

Failomatic, booooooo.

Any sort of motor swap in the future with the Fiero? 60*V6 power FTW!

A swap would be a great start- especially when there is only $400 in the car to begin with.

I was thinking SBC and parts from V8 Archie.

I drive my Sunfire more.

I have a Fiero and I am learning all that I can about these fun little cars but unfortunately school doesn't offer "learn about Fieros" classes so I don't really have the time to do much. I still think PFF is the place to go with questions because they will get answered knowledgeably within the day.
