the plan is to fit the engine in my volvo,but it will take atleast two years before its in the car.I have to save up for the engine.

The car vil have no special purpose,its most important that the car is driveabol on the street and that its fun to drive.

NA motors live longer on stock internals. But you can buy crate motors with forged pistons pretty cheap. Big boost needs o-ringed block. I'd just build a 10-1 NA motor for the street. Roller rockers, Hyd. roller cam, Edelbrock performer RPM intake, headers. Spend money on the heads, hot ignition. 6500 RPM redline, 300-350 hp w/ lots of torque.
