Engine has 110k miles and due for a top end rebuild. While its out (this summer) have to decide. Has a turbo tail so intercooler is logical. Could lower the compression with new 3.2 turbo pistons or, correct me if I am wrong, thicker cylinder gaskets and current pistons (if in spec). The rest of the turbo install gets complicated as a simple increase in displacement is easy. I would be doing most of the work in my small garage. Getting over my head is a concern. Rebuilt my 2.4 E twice in 10 years (burned a piston). so some experience.

Other concern is car value. Which option makes it less of a bastard? Its currently bone stock except chip, cat bypass and muffler.

really on the fence as to what to do.
