Default Sleeper?

Based on recent events I had this idea. How sweet/possible/difficult would it be to put all of this:

Yeah, yeah, you're thinking I'm crazy. But if I had money....I think I'd do it for the fun of it.

Definitely would be a big improvement, and oh yeah, it'd be a sleeper.

Turbo kit would probably be easier to get on there...

It would either be the L67 or an SRT4 motor/tranny if I was keeping this car forever. I doubt the stock tranny could hold up to much more power.

This was just an idea that was quickly overshadowed by the reality that it would be a PITA project, though fun I'm sure. The thought of the L67 in this 3100lb car is exciting.
