Trade for an ls1 F-body and still have 9k to play with?
Negative. Have 9k to put in his 97 Mustang Gt or Use the 9k to purchase a cammed ws6. Good shape.

I vote pi swap, built motor and turbo...alternatively with 9k there is the option of going with a 4 valve motor, and getting that built and then going turbo.

Id worry about getting some P.I. heads, intake and some comp cams stage 2 cams first, then gears, then i would worry about a turbo kit.

also, when you swap P.I. heads onto a non P.I. motor it raises you compression quite a bit(i believe into the 10.1 zone if my memory serves me right), so adding a turbo needs to be done with caution if you want the stock pistons and rods to survive.

Good info. How much, "ball park figure" would it cost to rebuild the motor with forged internals with a good set of heads/cams and intake? Maybe even a stroker kit.
