hard to say coming from a v6, adding all that stuff we listed so far you may end up freeing 30-35HP+

87k is probably too much for a turbo you may blow the engine.

As for the cold air kit I don't know much about them but if what make them fit one engine and not the other. I know this is probably a really noob question but I've never researched them.

If you have the stock intake for the 2.8 with fuel injection then you are already getting the air from in front of the radiator which is colder and not inside the engine compartment which is hotter. This is what I put on my car instead of the stock one that the 3.1 came with.

The part I'm talking about has the red bowtie on it in the pic below.

I think what makes them fit one engine and not the other is where the pipe attaches and also the amount of room in the engine bay. This determines how the pipe needs to be bent. I may be wrong but thats my best guess.

I got it off ebay. It is a stock ari intake from a TPI fuel injection system or the 2.8 MPFI. The reason I have the the piece of pvc pipe is that the 2.8 engines were a MAF system with a mass air flow sensor in between the intake and the throttle body. The 3.1's air a map system and don't have the mass air flow sensor so the stock piece from the 2.8 that goes in between wouldn't fit. It was to short.

Is your car fuel injected? If so what air intake does it have?

Then you are already getting cold air into the intake since it draw from in front of the radiator.

If you just want good gas mileage, keep the 2.8, just tune it up. If you want alot of hp, I agree with the engine swap, 2.8's have a history of bottom end problems at around 275 hp, which isnt much, and takes a good bit of cash to get them there, 2.8 performance parts are expensive because not alot of people build them up. A rebuilt 305 or preferably 350 would have about that much power with little modification and you could build it up from there. As far as the tach is concerned, unless its a real show car or something, i'd just get a sunpro tach, they're about 40$ easy to install and work fine advanced auto has them. High performance plug wires would be a waste of money for a 2.8, the stock replacement ones would be fine, anyone who tells you that they notice a difference between good stock wires and performance ones that is pushing less than 400 hp is lying to you.
