Be sure you know motors real well because the 2.7 is a DOHC piece and is easily the most difficult LH-car motor to work on.

And probably the least desireable for performance upgrades

I highly doubt you'll be able to find performance internal parts for the 2.7 and I'm not sure you're going to be able to "beef up" the aluminum block. Go find a 3.5 and swap it in....not too hard to find, and you'll already have the extra power over the 2.7.

Depends on your definition of "a lot" and yes, it has been done.
