Monster 3.4 liter 10:1+ CR, carbed, SSI'd, twin-plugged monster that will make just as much power as a stock 3.6.
10:1 you need race gas
lets face it carbs suck, the only people running carbs is nascar, you cant go in the mountains have to rejet to move to a different altitude,
you may come close to power, but you will still be lacking in torque
why ssi's? when you can have headers, makes no since

last thing why by a varioram motor? a head gasket 3.6 motor will do fine, im not saying its bad but the several thousand dollar up grade i dont think is worth it,
by the time you get done you have more in a carb motor that idles badly and is nervous, I have never had a 3.0 or a 2.7 run as smooth as a 3.6, the 3.2 is smooth but not like the 3.6
the 3.4 sounds like a nice race car piece,
Souk im not saying your wrong, but you are talking about one expensive motor, Kevin
