Unless you have a few other mods, as well as a good running motor (not needing any standard maintenance) I'd suggest no more than a 3.5.
The mods you will need at the very least for that:

Cold air or Fenderwell intake
High Flow catalytic convertor
180* thermostat
colder spark plugs (autolite 104'* area good one and gap them around .054"-.057")

Also, a scan is always a wise choice. It may tell you whether or not your car needs ported exhaust manifolds or something else.

And one thing for sure, ESPECIALLY when changing from a stock pulley -ABSOLUTELY NOTHING SHORT OF PREMIUM UNLEADED FUEL -no regular or mid-grade or you'll more than likely melt a piston.

It will give your car a bit more kick. A new press on pulley is about $60, well worth the price.

I built my own. You can get a rice pipe. Then it'* just a mater of shielding the filter off from the heat of the engine bay.
