Streetable? :) Maybe 200-230rwkw with Heads, Cam, Intake, Fuel upgrades. You'll probably spend alot more money going this way rather than forced. Look around and see what everyone else is doing. If you're wanting to avoid boost due to costs, then you're heading down the wrong path.

Its N20, and really, a blower is cheaper in the long run than N20. Trust me on that one.

Sorry to say, but at 17 i feel that 200rwkw is probably too much. Get some time driving and then think about more power. How is it you have a V8 at 17, doesnt that put you on P plates, and aren't P platers banned from V8's

Not in canberra mate. And thats about the only good thing about canberra. And to tell you the truth i just wonna ticker with things the power is a bonus. I'v wonnted the car i have now befor i even new what power was. but Yeah i'm not gunna get N20. and all so as apprentice i wont be afford to much power in one go, but ill get there. thanks for your concern lol.

Cheers

I meant, making the most out of the engine without going inside it. ie; stock heads,intake,cam but change things like headers, t-body etc.?
If so then;
BPT 3 piece underdrives
65mm t-body
70mm MAF body(from an AU for example)
Series 2 EL's already have GT headers so no need to change them
Twin 2 1/4" or single 3" exhaust
Cold air
Bump your base timing a couple of degrees.

^^^^

That's a very good list of things to start with. How about you tell us your budget and we can give further suggestions from there. The sky really is the limit. If boost is out of your budget, then so is the 347 stroker.
