I need f/r shock tower braces, and a complete suspension rebuild
This is such a threadjack...
Anyhow, like I said, a power-on-demand kinda set up would be hard to do.
*I* think the best option would be a set of switch-on-the-fly tunes to use, one for low power, high economy, and one for low economy, high power... much like BMW's (M) button. Oh, I love the (M) button.
The closest answer would be to simply twinturbocharge the 4.6L, and use switch-on-the-fly tunes for variable rates of fuel consumption. This would require a VERY skilled tuner and definitely a dynomometer, forged internals and some other goodies...
IMHO I think all-aluminum suspension bits, add f/r shock tower braces, and a twin-turbocharger setup... that'd be the best thing... That would get you close to the MK-R, but the thing is, it is a newer vehicle with newer OEM technology, and pushing 15 year old equipment to do the same thing is hard.
