That's going to be tough NA using the 3.8L internal components.

Get a port and polish on your heads before you do the cam.

You can get by with 20 less hp to equal the performance of a GT since you weigh 200lbs+- less. IF you can keep a lot of junk out of the car.

It's not that difficult to get there but you should pick up the rotating assembly from a 4.2L V6 to get there the easiest. Crank, pistons, rods, etc.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
