Not so much of a technical question, more advice. If you were in my position and had around 20K that you could use freely on whatever you wanted for your car, (1989 IROCZ) what would you do?? I was leaning towards maybe an LSX swap with some kind of power adder and do the whole Street/Strip weekend warrior thing. Hopefully building the suspension for that setup, doing the whole shabang, 9" rear, built tranny, fuel system, wheels tires, doing the interior, and whatever safety precautions the car would need. So I am looking for opinions on what you guys would personally do if you were in my situation. And no I dont want to sell the car and buy something else with the money, I know they are sick mullethead beaters but I love 3rd gens and wanna make this one just as nice or better than 4th gens. So I would appreciate your guys input!! Thanks so much.

With your budget that is going to be rough. But staying with your current chassis I would suggest a big cube (454+) and nitrous (direct port) to achieve your goals. Now for a fun streetable fast car I would suggest looking into a ls1 swap with a 76mm like termy said. That would probably burn most of your 20k budget.
