Not to discourage anyone from dreaming but trans upgrades, turbocharging, V8 conversions, and many performance enhancing ideas have been discussed over the years. Unfortunately none have yet come to fruition. Short of grafting a M body onto a performance platform ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$) we are kind of stuck with intake spacers, bored throttle bodies (a few NOX set ups) or a "4.0" stroker (2 or 3 exist)
"search" various terms for some history on discussions.
Primp up your M, Mod to your taste and enjoy a great ride.
