I bought a 83ZXT for $300 169,000miles on it, replaced stock turbo with T04/T3 hybrid, starion intercooler, high output fuel pump, adjustable fuel pressure regulator. Right now I'm running about 12psi. This thing is a BEAST now. I get wheelspin at 40mph in 2nd gear when boost peaks. I would estimate 300-325hp. It would take ALOT of $$ to get a car to do this naturally asp.
My 2 cents
