I've got kit 1-0883, the instructions for the engine are identical to yours, but the engine itself really isn't that bad IMHO. The block does have some surface detali molded in, even a 'casting number', and overall it looks reasonably accurate. There are some bad sink marks on the chrome valve cover (which is painted on a stocker anyway).
And also IMHO, I think EVERY Fiero benefits from a V8. This is an LS engine, T-5 gearbox, modified Fiero rear subframe. You can see the beefy trans adapter and 2 of the fabricated engine mounts. I THINK I have more pix of this setup if you decide to go V8.
