Pud237 have you seen this ...

Dan, just looking at the AHM website (sadly enough) and Adie now does a kit to convert a 166 3.0 engine (which I believe you've got into your car) to a 3.8l ... AH Motorsports ... come on you must be tempted

there is a lot you can do to the 3.0 engine to make it much faster before going 3.8, ask CPH, he has had great power before boring/stroking to 3.8

We have built some of the quickest and most reliable 3L both for road and competition,proven!!
But there is no substitute for cu inches.

I agree on the cubes, that's why I enjoy 5.0V8, 4.0 supercharged etc.

Its good to see you have screwed good times (power) from the 3L too, I know it can be done.

Depends which way you go,but about 310 ,before it starts becoming too expensive not to justify spending a bit more and going for capacity increase

100bhp per litre is relatively easy to achieve on an NA engine ... although as AT said much more after that and it gets expensive ...
