It would beg the question why you did all that work and didn't bother with a bigger donk?
The bigger capacity would surely give you nicer torque!

I think a turbo 3.2 would be a very interesting project. Much better rod ratio and lower piston speeds (actually quite close to a RB26) will rev much harder than a 4.0 would.

A bored and sleeved 3.2 is not far behind a 4.0 on displacement but has much better geometry.

If I ever find a 3.2 in the trash pile Id be tempted to give it a go.

if it's a 3.2L engine, take every thing you want and send the engine this way, i'll take it from you. I'd pay money too.
