It really comes down to what condition you find the engine in when you get it all apart. Is there a performance cam or stroked crank that you could drop in?
Haha. Yeah. The extra cylinders would probably be a good start. Turns out the tops of the cylinders have all kinds of deposits on them. I'll probably brush them out and try to polish that up too. The heads are covered in deposits and a couple of drain lines were corroded closed. She apparently hadn't been taken very good care of by the previous owner. I'll definitely get the gasket set. Autzone has a set for 208.00 but I get a 10% discount. Woo military. Found a set of head bolts on KOperformance.com that were 19 bucks, still looking for performance cams and a crank. If you guys have any 'ins' on where I might be able to pick these up for a fair price let me know.
I figure I get the ports polished, the pistons cleaned, the corrosion off, she'll pick up pretty well. Still trying to find a test pipe for the exhaust too. After that, maybe a chip and maybe fab a turbo or super charger sometime in the future but Untill I get a significant amout of cash and can pick up that 95 m3 engine, tranny, cluster, and harness all in one, that will be the extent of my modding to the engine.
