Depends on the budget...Bang for the buck, nitrous all the way.

Just bang....Nitromethane!

Twins with an intercooler if I could afford the whole package.

For me, it would have to be either turbos or nitrous because I already have the first three, but I think it would have to be turbos,but I've got too much compression (16:1). Nitrous is too touchy, and I've got too many $s in my engine to take a chance.

I would love to put the twin on the motor. But I'm going to build a LS style motor for that. The wife has a 62 nove that is waiting for the jeep project to be completed and that is going to start.

I'm going to build a low compression 6.0l LQ4 chevy fuel injected motor for that. I'm wanting to trying to hit to 1000hp mark and then use a 6 speed trans with an overdrive the get 25+ MPG.
