Default Is a kickass n/a engine possible?

Bonjour to you all,

This question was probably asked zillions of time ( l know it was on the vol*o board), but is there any way to upgrage performance on a non-turbo engine? l have the opportunity to buy a '94 900S and i want to transform it in a race car for the Québec touring GT championship.Rules are not allowing turbo engine and displacement over 2.8 litre.

Can we stroke those engines?

Any perf. headers and exhaust in the aftermarket?

Would swapping for a V6 would do it(not knowing the displacement or available hps on that engine..)? ops:

Is there some sport suspensionÉbrakes kits
available anywhere?

Since l drove my buddy 2001 viggen, l'm hooked on these cars.(l know, i know, they deliver too much power to the front wheels, but to me there is no such thing as "too much power")
thanks in advance...

There's a guy over on Saabnet who has a normally aspirated 900S called Meatball that he's got putting out way over 300 hp. I don't know exactly what he's done to it, but if you go over to Saabnet and search for "Meatball" on the NG900 board, you might find something. I don't think he's ever given many specifics, though. I'm not sure about stroking it, because the 2.3 liter is more or less a stroked version of the 2.0 liter. I think it would be better to modify the 4-cylinder than to put in a V-6. There are too many reliability problems with the V-6. and not many upgrades, although a couple of guys from Europe have said that Vauxhall used that engine in a car or two and upgrades exist for them.
