$8000 is a good budget for a great strong NA engine.. but you'd almost be mad not to invest in a cappa supercharger kit.. for that money the bang-fo-your buck will be alot bigger... than an NA application... and yes... as above... :lol:

capa kit would be the way to go, you will slaughter a v8 with a stage 2 powerdyne or vortech kit.

the capa kit claims 8psi for 180rwkw. so its not too much. It would be interesting to see what the torque does...
