I'm not questioning the output, I'm questioning longevity, I'm a big fan of the 350,000-mile car. (sorry if that puts you off) Of course having said that I wouldn't pass up a turbo job on a Hartge 2.7, but with my own money, and I had to do forced induction, I'd go for a really swishy supercharger.

The embarassment of a turbo is offset by doubling the HP of a naturally aspirated engine, as opposed doing an engine swap resulting in 1/5 total HP gain in if so much

It all comes down to personal preference and funds though it can cost as much to do an engine swap as the cost of a stage 1 turbo kit.
