with a full "e-to-i conversion" (check the archives), lumpy-as-hell cam, cold air induction, chip, exhaust, big bore throttle body, high flow injectors, rising rate fuel pressure regulator, etc., etc., etc., you're going to make under 200 horses. forced induction? i don't know how much you'd make but that's gonna be expensive as hell. this is an economy engine...there's only so much that a SOHC 2-valve-per-cylinder engine can flow. no matter what you do to the engine, the 528e is not going to be very quick off the line, nor is it going to have an astronomical top speed. the beauty in this car is its handling...if you want to go faster go to drivers' school and learn how to take full advantage of its handling capabilities.
