Is this true?
2nd, the last number in the motor oil is it's viscosity level. Viscosity is how 'gooey' something is. For instance, pudding is very viscous, and water is not. The higher the rating, the thicker it is. This is all helpful when you have changng weather conditions. When its cold, a higher viscous oil will be much stiffer than a low one, so you should put a low viscocity oil in your car when it's winter. This will allow your car to start easier. I high viscocity oil should be put in your car when its hot. That will prevent the oil from being to thin when it's really damn hot outside.

That's a really misinformed statement.
Come to Toronto and you'll see some nicely tuned Honda motors. My friend has a all N/A 240RWHP GS-R motor in an Integra that runs low 12's. Does that sound like a hopeless motor to you?
I'll link a really helpful site once I find it. There's a site that sells cams and titanium street/race components for M40/42/44. Their 318 race cars (AKA the S42) produce 380RWHP. More realistically, while using street cams and a nice set of titanium valvetrain components and some forged pistons, you can get a good 160-170RWHP with all the reliability of a stock motor.
BMP makes great (but expensive) stuff for the 318. They have street-race cams, multi-throttle intake manifolds, titanium valvetrain (springs and retainers), high compression head gaskets, custom dyno tuned chips, MAF fuel management converters, adjustable fuel pressure regulators, intake kits, etc.
