In my opinion your only option is turbo charging and intercooling if you want to use your current motor. Try induction and fule management tricks.

I still say go to the junk yard and find a turbo car with a similar size engine and hijack the turbo charger. Buy an intercooler as well. Dont overdoit with the boost.

I think somebody is trying to pull our leg on this one.
Just for fun here's a true story about "Prespires" (my pet name for 'em). Dude comes into the dealership claiming his new Aspire doesn't have any acceleration. I take the info and am real polite although I'm trying to stifle a laugh. Now this old boy weighs 375-400 lbs and literally pours himself out of this car. I swear I heard the car grunt when he got out!! I ask him at what point or speed the car seems to lay down. He says, without cracking a smile, "..um 'bout 90-95." Well I about lost my lunch and was glad I'd swallowed my last drink of my diet coke before he answered less I spewed it all over him or it came out of my nose like when I was a kid. I patiently explained that 90 was pretty much top speed for these cars and that he should perhaps slow down. He thanked me and I wished him a nice day!!

That's sad, even my 6050lbs truck w/o driver will go to a top speed of 107mph ;-P And my speed limiter on my '99 Taurus hits at 110, and it WOULD go faster if it didn't have the limiter.

You ought to get a Hyundai accent. Those things are actually pretty bad-ass if you add wiper nozzle lights onto the hood.

Actually AWOL, if you really want a muscle car, you can buy a used Yugo for a song, lower it, put stickers and one of those huge buzzing tailpipes on it. It'll smoke in all four gears.
