That isn't trivial as injector notches will not align.

With 3.2 engine you will get plenum/fuel rails, bigger port heads etc. You loose turbo scavenge pump though so you need to install it. But it's probably easier to do than porting 930 heads to correct dimension and doing the messy notch-realignment job.

I would use 3.2 engine, a set of JE pistons and H-beam rods, 930 scavenge pump etc.
I'm in the middle of a 3.2 turbo conversion with a 350 to 400 hp target. Question what VE to use on calculations? To match a Garrett turbo to the my desired shifting power band of approx 3000 to 5000

As you pointed out E85 is the other option and I'm looking at also. What injectors and fuel regulator would you recommend?
