Like Murcie-Me said, two smaller radiators work better with the limited space.  You need to duct cool air to the radiators and you need a rear vent area to get the heat of your engine compartment out.  Below are two Civic radiators that come with a shroud and fan (wish they had them on the market 5 years ago) The first item is a 2-row core and the 2nd is a 3-row core.  These are a low-budget solution but depending on your cooling needs, you may have to spend more money for a custom setup.
A problem with these radiators is that the fan is on the wrong side of the radiator (normally, the water inlet and outlet need to be located on the front side of the radiator and the puller fan and shroud need to be on the rear of the radiator.  The shroud & fan would have to be repositioned)

Check out the "Heating/Cooling" section for many ideas of "how to" from the forum members.

01

Look at the size of the stock Fiero radiator and you'll see what I mean about it being to big to fit under the left or right taillight. Your other option would be 2 smaller radiators, one under each light. Many people have used dual Porsche Boxster radiators, or dual Honda Accords.

Yeah I want to move the single stock fiero radiator front the front but,I don't want to run two. So you are saying if I run one,the one will be too big. Two would be smaller,and they would fit under the tail lights. If I go with two what radiators works

That's probably not a good idea. The only place you could put one would be below the taillights, and that area would be to small for the size radiator you'd need if you were only running one.
