Idiot with 90 bird 3.8L NOS plan

Ok im crazy and i know it, I have just enough info to be dangerous. Im taking a 90 bird i have and building a foot brake car for bracket racing. I plan to make this a V8 car at some point, but why waste a good running 3.8L so i plan to hit it with a 100 shot NOS system as well drop the exhaust and run 3 inch stight pipe to the rear. Of course this maybe an bad idea but what the heck the worse i could do is kill the engine, as i stated before i plan to replace this driveline with fomoco V 8 power. But any sugestions on makinging this a viable plan?

Why do something twice? I'd say (if you're dead set on the V8 swap), do it now and don't bother with trying to blow up the 3.8 motor. Seems kinda pointless and a waste of money to me.

Personally, I'd just assume buy a V8 car and start from there unless you're just gonna gut the car and going carbed like 95badbird did with his. I know if I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't even consider the 3.8.

Plumbing new exhaust for what might amount to one unspectacular run sounds like an exercise in futility. I don't think this "might" be a bad idea as you put it. More like is.

But whatever it's your car. If you want to have some fun blowing it up and don't mind doing the work go ahead and do it...
