Tom really wants to do one of these. I had issues with money myself or I'd have one. You'll probably have to take the car down to NC though, but if you have the money, Tom will hook you up.

The only question is- to turbo or not to turbo. With NA, I'd expect a streetable (meaning Stg2 cams, intake, header, and 3" exh) 250 hp/190 lb-ft on a dyno. That torque might be lower as it typically doesn't vary much from stock which was 175. The only way to get more torque is to turbo. That would be wild. Due to piston speed restrictions you might have an engine that shouldn't be revved past 6500, but you'd have a ton of power from the git-go to there.
