to get real serious power from a little V6 that could you will need forced induction. it really depends on what you call quick and how much power you want and more importantly how much money you want to spend on it not forgetting that if you build a decent engine then you will need to upgrade other parts to cope with the extra mumbo

ohh, welcome to the forum :)

Money no option? Then strip the engine down, forged internals, bulk everything up, then slap on a twin turbo kit and push 20psi through it. Make sure you have an auto though because your manual will be dead in 2 seconds. Then the normal diff ratio, stally, etc.

Don't forget to upgrade the support systems, especially the oiling, cooling and fuel systems.
