    The best thing to think about is if you have a 4" bore, 4" stroke V8 alongside a same bore/stroke I-4 or V6, the V8 will make more power due to the CI inherently. You'd do more modifying the I-4 or V6 to compare with the V8 and then some, so if you are already prepping it for RWD, why wouldn't you just swap in the V8. It is definitely the cheapest route to go to make power.

          From my experience i would say turbododge is better, a lot of rather knowledgeable TD guys on there, specially a fellow named NAJ, he is like a walking factory service manual lol

              if its what you want to build, build it, build it right....
              maybe a warmed up 3.9L v6 in it...
              if your trade is a fabricator/welder it shouldnt be much a problem.

              good luck & post pics...

                if you want to try a v6, i would use the 3.5 they are not sideways mounted in the LH cars they are mounted the right way. they should be a little easier to adapt. plus they are dodge motors not mitsu. the 3.5 makes more power out of the box except for maybe the 3.0 twin turbo stealth/3000gt. the 3.5 has less aftermarket support i think but a RWD trans exists for the 3.5 in prowlers. i have the 3.5 in my 300m and its great revs fairly high for a big v6 and makes as much power (on paper) as an E58 360. slap turbos on it and on low boost i but you could make 400 hp easily and if it handles it keep turning it up. the more i think about it, check with prowler owners and they should know just how much support there is for the 3.5. something tells me there is a supercharger kit for them out there

                  One year, at the Mopar Nats, I spotted a rather drab looking shadow. It was black with what looked to be a quick garage repaint. Shiny, but not very well done, with plain black steel wheels.
                  Come to find out that it was by design. Low key sleeper style. What I saw when I walked up was a dual quad 408 small block, longitudinally mounted and rear wheel drive, tucked neatly under the STOCK hood. Out of sight, out of mind. The interior was well done, and, without close scrutiny, it was hard to tell that there was work done to the floor to clear the 727. It also had a panel in the rear to keep from getting a view of the solid rear axle.

                  It can be done, as you obviously now know, but it'll take some serious work if you plan to make it look like THAT car! :-D

                  If I can find the photo's of this one, I'll post them!

                  Another option would be to do a 16 valve conversion using the head from a Neon. It's been done several times before with great success. These conversions are covered in TurboDodge.com forums, as well as Turbo-Mopar.com forums and BoostedMopar.com forums.
