Is it a daily driver?
If not, find some shed space and start pulling it apart. Replace EVERYTHING that is worn or broken. On a VL thats 90% of things you'll touch :D.
Give it a good service, a set of extractors and maybe a 2-2.25" exhaust.

go on calais turbo lol. But yeah turbo or engine conversion. Unless you have a pile of gold the rb30 is useless in NA form
Not true, when your mount the twin cam head off an r33 skyline, you can still keep the standard gasket, the the engine becomes a real N/A monster! If you set it up properly (basically, if you have enough time and money) the bottom end can rev to 11000, kind of like the TRD 4age, only bigger :) (the TRD 4age makes 184kw, while being N/A and it's a 1.6L)
