Scott Not Wise! too much to change, buy a Turbo or a Turbo engine and accessories. To start, If you add a turbo you have to replace the head otherwive you will burn the valves, by the time you finish spending a lot of $$$ on a conversion you can aply that toward a Turbo, then you can make some performance enhancements to that.
