We're debating on building a mean all motor 3-valve stroker or put twin turbos on it.

1982 Mustang LX notchback:
My brother bought the car in march 2009. All stock. Its got a 200ci inline 6, C5 automatic, and 7.5 rearend. The plan for it is to leave the paint and interior alone and put in an 8.8 rearend, a C4 automatic with an 8inch converter and a 2.3 turbo motor from an '86 turbocoupe with an aftermarket head, cam, and intake, and a stroker kit and do the same suspension set up as my car except use Strange 10way adjustable shocks and leave the stock springs.
