I know the 4g have been making 1000hp mark. I know that AME has made 1000 from their 2.3 4g in the evo in a few different cars and i know a local here in atl is making 800ish w/o NOS in his DSM, but i know he running the 2.4 4g. I am not sure what the top is for 2.0L built interals but I know shep is running high 8s right now with his 2L.

Now I know the 4g is a rare case cause there is so much support for that damn motor it isn't funny. It doesn't help that mitsu been running the 4g in damn near half there 4cyl and the 2.4L Sohc head can be swapped for the DOHC with intake and exhaust and have a 2.4L turbo motor and can be swapped into a 2.0L turbo car for about 500 bucks(doing the work yourself).

I agree with Rob that the FE3 seem like one hella motor so unless I get funding for a 4g swap when I blow the b6 up I be looking at the FE swap instead.

I've always thought it would be cool to have a euro s52 out of an M3 in a miata. But that vr6 idea is the ****, I love how those roar.

I've got info and drawings on my photobucket site free for the taking.

The vr6 w/turbo seems like a good swap given it's narrow, probably no longer than the fe3 - as long as it's not too tall.
