Over $90k later....a different 3.8tt engine is still on a stand and everything on the car has been replaced.

Buy a great condition running car and do the standard, fuel mod, K27 HFS, headers, Intercooler etc and you'll have your 350 and cash to boot.

Trust me.

Best of luck.
Dude, your opinion doesn't count here,, you're so over the top with that beast it's insane!!!! ( but we all love it!!!)
As someone who's done both,, the roller will always need something..and will nickel and dime you.. Getting to 350 hp isn't a big deal from stock.. I'd go that way if you're not going to track it..
