The whole reason for a project like this is just the "neato" factor. Something that not alot of other people have. Sure I could do a turbo swap like everybody else, or shoehorn a massive V8 into the engine bay, but why not be different? Besides that, the mods listed were only for the engine. What about other things that have to be taken into account? Throw in a beefed up T-5, different rear gears, a stiffer suspension, etc. and it'd actually be quite nice to drive. After all it's not just how much power you have it's how efficiently it's applied. Kinda like "size doesn't matter it's how you use it." Not saying it'll be a race monster, but it definately won't feel sluggish. And the whole thing, while maybe not the most cost effective project, will definately be fun to drive as a daily driver. And doing it this way means I don't have to change my front brakes, fuel lines, motor mounts, crossmember, etc. that would be involved in a V8 swap.
