For an all-out build, the 4V motor has more potential, but the PI motor will be cheaper to get to your performance goal. A tork-tech kit on a stock PI motor with a ported 03/04 Cobra blower, and a good tune will pretty much get you to 400rwhp without getting involved in changing cams, or porting heads, or anything like that. Obviously the Trick Flow heads along with some better cams would be even better, but are not even necessary to get to 400rwhp.
And Al, for the diff, 3.27 was an option on 94/95 cars, but 3.08 was the standard. For 96/97, the 3.27s became standard and you could no longer get the 3.08s.
