You are really better off getting a better engine. The 12v VR6 has forged internals said to be good up to about 500 hp...although I have my doubts about that, they can handle whatever you can throw at them within reason.

since when is everything about high dyno numbers?? whats more important have a 800hp car that drives like s**t or a 200 hp car that you absolutely love to drive?? the 2.0 WILL take up to 8psi with a new head gasket head studs a cam and the right programing and you can turbo it for under $1600. do it bro do it don't let nay sayers drag you down.
