LOL !!!!!...amazing replys as the Fiero Club hears about overheated coils, stock and MSD, wire meltings, cruise control cable problems, blower motors not always going on, and all the while guys are trying exhaust wraps, more ventilation, extra fans etc. Most racers KNOW the more outside air flow to the engine area. the better
With your poor grammar it's hard enough to understand WHAT you're asking. To get an intelligent answer we first have to have clear understanding of what you're asking.
To give you some data points, I have a stock 88 Fiero Formula. 88 didn't have a blower in the engine compartment but had a heat shield around the coil. I've never seen evidence of heat related problems with the coil, melting wires, cables, etc. that wasn't traceable to another cause such as pinched wiring, incorrectly routed wires or cables. Even the famous ignition control module failures that are frequently blamed on heat can more accurately be traced to incorrect application of heat sink compound and/or low quality parts.
A lot of people call themselves "racers" and they all seem to "KNOW" everything. How much is empirical knowledge and how much is bench racing BS is up for debate.
A racer should also know how much changing environment can affect performance. Given that, direct measurement of your vehicle in your environment is the only way to get the accurate data you want.
Are you just curious about the temps or is there a specific problem you're trying to correct? Properly maintained and operating, a stock V6 Fiero won't have any heat problems in the rear compartment.
