I was reading an article about a guy who put 2, 3.5's into an lhs, one in the front one in the back (430hp 440ft-lbs tourqe). which got me thinking what you would do if you had the time and money,

because in the near futre I might have the time and money to do a crazy project and I'm trying to get some cool idea's

also I thought about turbo, but compression is too high, and i would rather have high compression than trying a supercharger or turbo

no no no, see even if you did "up" the compression the computer notices that and makes changes so in the end you get no gain. This was my plan for a wile 11.5:1 compression on my car.. My goal is to be running in the 14's with Tom and his 300m on all motor.

With a higher compression (10.4:1) and boosting you can boost less and make more hp. You've got less of a gap to fill.

The one and only reason these cars haven't officially been turbo or supercharged yet is money. There are a few people whom have cobbled together a turbo set up or supercharged set up but no dyno results. Just pictures.

Concorde R/T?

I'd get the body fixed up/repainted, as well as some new rims...

More realistically, I want to put in some 2g seats.

Chop the roof, weld and shave the back doors. Not make it a convertible, just eliminate it all together, like the old MGs

I'd try to make the 300M live up to the 300 nameplate and give it a 300hp engine. Also, would take my car, strip to the body, clean up all the rust that you can't see and give it a nice clean start. For the engine and tranny I would try to get something a little more durable and powerfull. Suspension all new PHP from an R/T. Interior would stay the same except I would put a killer sound system in it. And for the wheels I would go either 18" or 20" charger/magnum style wheels.

Not true, Turbo (Rob) way back in the day was legit. I even have a video of his dyno but I never saved the dyno sheet. I'm sure someone has it.
