go to the s2forum.com and look around.
We just did a group buy on JE pistons, they seem to be the best choice as
far as pistons. There is a lot of talk of 7A cams in the 3B for a
performance upgrade. And of course the head and manifold porting.
Basically you can get enormous hp with a set of pistons, rods, intake
manifold, exhaust manifold, the right turbo and ECU.
You are correct in that downtime will be minimized by collecting all the
parts ahead of time ( I have a spare brand new oil pan extension needed to
fit the 200TQ 3B into the CQ if you are going to run the stock S2 A/C
