I've dealt with the guy -he has parts off a Shelby Lancer I found in a salvage yard.
He was running a 2.2 turbo with an A-413 auto tranny.
The turbo was a custom from turbonetics, the head, is a big-valve head from Forward Motion, the motor has forged Venolia or JE pistons.
This video is quite old (01-02).
Check out www.turbododge.com for some other fast vans -Fantastic, I wouldn't go too near a certain mini-van in Monticello/Rogers area -he'* running mid-low 12'* and if that won't smoke your LSS ...his 11 second Shadow will.

Oh, and he only had approx. $2500 in mods at that time and was also his daily driver.

that'* probably the one I'm talking about in the Monticello area, as I've heard mention of the guy selling the van last spring -haven't talked to the guy this year so I'm not sure of it'* location.

$2500 doesn't sound too out of the ordinary. Boosting up turbocharged motors can be cake. These Chrysler motors can take it.

I believe it. But.... what about the tranny? I had an 89' Dynasty and to replace the trans it would've been $2400.

The A-413 is a much cheaper trans. A stock rebuild can be had for $1G roughly and a mild beefed up A-413 for under $1300.
