400+ hp, twin turbo 2.7 enlarged to 2.8 with 92mm cylinders and lowered compression with increased number of base gaskets, magnesium case, stock studs, by 'DPHANS' who posts on this board occasionally.

This motor and turboing the 2.7 discussed on this thread:

2.7 Which turbo do the kits use?

'DPHANS' did it with hot-rodded CIS but no reason why someone couldnt do it with EFI if savvy enough.

If the 2.7 in your car right now is 'disposable' , you could use it to gain turbocharging experience by doing a top end and ditching the CIS for megaquirt, lowering the compression and gradually tune to safe boost. If you want a more solid motor, start with an aluminum case motor (SC or Carrera) for safer hp.
