Sounds like you need an LSx swap if you have this kind of money.

No, it's way cooler to sink 20 grand into a BP

This..... +1

Won't be disappoint.

Go low as much as possible depending on fuel requirement. If only using 93, use a compression 9:1 or lower, If you plan on E85 go 9:1 or higher. BP make power off of timing, the higher the ratio the less timing you can run minimizing your maximum output.

High compression will inhibit your ability to make power once you add a turbo because you will be limited in your spark advance.

A CNC head from 949 Racing will be an excellent choice for getting the most out of both naturally and unnaturally aspirated engines.
