First off, not enough info. The whole combo must work together as a team to make max power so we`d have to have more info on what the entire combo consists of. Second, if your hanging on to street racing seriously you won`t get much help around here because we all believe in the simple rule that is if your going to race you do it on a track and leave it off the street.

You need to list what you have, what you want, and what your budget is. The budget is the most important part.

Chop four cylinders off, mount it transversely in the front the car and get some "Type-R" stick on badges for the rear and fenders.

Of course you will be doing all your actual "street racing" at the track,,,
right.....

Once that concept sinks in, the rest is easy.

Start by evaluating what you got there and your real performance goals.

What is the cylinder head casting number (under the valve covers) ?

What is your performance /power goal?
