All Fiero have Cold Air Intake so engine gets cool/cold air outside of engine bay.2.
Side Scoop mods often need more to "Fix" the CAI but nubes just buy "CAI Kits" from Jeggs et al or from Ebay or "make one" in other ways or just remove Fiero Muffler/Water Separator.3.
Then install "the kits" wrong and now floods the air filter w/ polluted water every time drives on wet roads, drive thru car wash "barns," etc.
"Paper" Air Filters Hate water let alone polluted water and easily wreck them.
K&N types looses their oils when hit by Car Wash "water" and tools and won't work "right" if they clean the air at all after that. May not work right even after "recharging" them.
Worse, Even w/o that, K&N and rest of Oil coated media often Does Not protect the engine as "Factory Types" and some others. Oil media often Causes Expensive MAF Failures as oil gets on the MAF heated parts. Cleaning w/ "MAF Cleaners" often won't help.
More? GM and others Hate K&N and other oil coated media because often causes major wear and/or oil contamination but because of Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act etc have a hard time to make owners to use good filters. Go dig thru TSB from GM Warning Dealers about cars and trucks using K&N filters. More so w/ Diesel, Super and Turbo charged vehicles that suck in way more air.

Everyone here will tell you they are in it for the greater good. They are continuing Munsons work. Order without worries.
Let's say the rest is true... (Everyone? Unlikely.) Holding Munson as a "good example" isn't flying w/ many people.
Munson and other HL "Upgrade" have problems and/or Illegal in many places not just in the U.S. even when they use Real DOT/ECE Legal "Bulbs."
Many have To Remove part or all of a Munson HL Kit because Light Output is Very Poor, Failed Inspection, and/or got Stopped by Cops having Covers over HL. If you remove the covers, often causes other problems.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
