A windage tray serves a couple purposes, neither of which are very important (IMHO) for street use:
I personally don't think one is really necessary on a Fiero, unless you're seriously racing it. I've had the oppurtunity to ride in my car with someone else driving on both an autocross course and a 2.25 mile roadrace course. I was able to watch the guages in sustained high g cornering both directions, and the oil pressure guage never moved.
From Doug Chase
Engines with shallow oil pans (like the stock LT1 [and the Quad-4]) have windage trays, even for street use.
Not much use for one in a transverse mounted engine...
