alright, i have recently aquired $4000 and i can either put it into the body and paint or into the engine. i have decided to put it into the engine so its a total sleeper with a rough body and crazy engine. i know this is a huge thing to ask but i was just wonderin if u could share ur knowledge. The problem is that i have no clue where to start. i was think maybe gettin a cosmo engine imported but than again my 87 t2 has a fairly new engine and i will be tearing it down and rebuilding it anyway. well i was just wonderin if u guys could tell me what to do to the engine and beefin up the trans. i would like to get at least 300 whp and have it reliable. thanks in advance guys.

i say tear down the block, port and rebuild, think about a hybrid turbo, and get a standalone. 300whp shouldn't be too hard after that.
