and I'd think your results should be pretty close to identical as mine were...

    Not to be too disagreeable, but I did basically all these modifications, 
plus a cam, in my GT.  The car was quick for awhile, but it wore off very 
quickly.  Not that a turbo would keep me happy forever either, but I feel 
that for all the work associated with an engine transplant including the 
harness, a turbo is a much better way to invest that time IMO.  If you 
already have the NF or NG in the car, that is another story...
