look around on the net for Mini-stock 2300 motors....

it will get you thinking about that little 4 cylinder.

i built mine up and it was as if it had a big v-6 in it.....

look into headers, cam, port and polish the head and a slightly bigger carb if you're not fuel injected.

i know mine was easily pushing about 140-150 hp just slightly modded.....i've seen these motors drop well over 250 hp without a turbo....
