depends on how yo uwant to spend money, you could spray it (after the motor is built with internals and so on) or boost it (alsoif you build the internals) for y ou i'de go with an agressive all motor set up with a good size cam and port work. maybe drop ina stroker kit which would be rightous

lightne the car, get front traction bars, tht won't get hp, but wll make your car easier to put down the power, and less weight makes it faster.

Don't stroke it. Waste of money.

If you pop some JDM Type S pistons in there, and use 1 layer of your headgasket, and add some agressive cams you could make a good street all motor set up. But since you want boost down the line that would counter productive. I say leave it as is until your ready to boost.

if you want to stroke it then you should bore it and sleeve it too. it only makes sense if you're boosting. if you stroke it you throw off the bore/stroke ratio, so you have to overbore it too, and if you do that you might as well get performance sleeves.

bottom line, dont stroke.

just look into forged internals. Eagle H-Beams or Carrillos for rods, SRP or JE for pistons.

Manley and Crower make good rods also (I'd stay away from Eagle). CP and Wiesco make good pistons.
