A option is a 8v Volvo turbo head. Already has proper valves, aluminum, already has a turbo exhaust manifold, and no pistons mods. Expensive yes.

Just get a BO PORT head and call it a day. The volvo swap is cool but when push comes to shove it is a poor investment for the power gained.

A 9 second 4 cylinder Turbo Fox-Bodied Mustang that produces 1,000HP, gets 25MPG, does amazing wheel stands and is street legal. Built by the Hubers in Saint Louis, Mo and campaigned nationally.

The first turbo 4 cylinder Musatng built by Ford in 1979, this car has evolved into a 150MPH quarter mile car with full interior, passes emissions and beats the vast majority of V8 cars that it comes up against.

Production by One Eyed Dog Productions, Audio Engineering by Vocal VooDoo Productions, and a very special Thanks to the Huber Family and 1320video.com.
