Be careful.  Be very careful.

I don't know if it's still active, but there was a GN list with a bunch
of 'enthusiasts' trying to Happersize their engine's performance.  The GNs
had a turbo'd V6 that could be (and was) improved as much as our engines.

There used to be a web site www.gnttype.org - but it no longer has
anything.  It belonged to the Grand National and T-Type Performance 
Enthusiasts Organization.

If you got hooked up with one of their cars, I'd bet you'd need maybe
an RS6 to leave them in the dust (in a straight line).  I think these 
guys were turning high 12 second quarter miles.  

I'd be interested in things other people have to add to this.
