The ideal is the supercharger which really is instant power - ran one for awhile on a 4 cylinder MG. Only problem is that they run out of 'whoof' the higher the rpm.

I guess the slight lag that exists in well implemented turbos doesn't bother me much - must have become inured to it with the Fiero, which had a well chosen turbo but still showed a bit more lag than 21st century cars have.

Current fleet:
1957 Jamaican bodied MGA
1958 MGA Twin Cam (race car)
1962 MGA Deluxe Coupe
1971 Jensen Interceptor
2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe
2007 BMW Z4M coupe
Recently departed: 1965 Jensen CV8, 1969 Lamborghini Islero S, 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT, 1969 MGC roadster

supercharger on a clutch plus turbo charger.... best of both worlds.... originally implemented 35 years ago.

OP, you might want to research which family of ECMs your desired new engine uses in the chassis GM shipped it in. If it's not the same 'type' as the GXP's Bosch unit, you may find that the wiring becomes far more difficult.

Rough approximations taken off fully dressed engine
with top cover still on.

A-25" to front pulley, seems to be close to the same to the intake front (under the cover).

B-22 1/2" to top of engine cover, perhaps 1/2" to 1" clearance under it (hard to see center of pulley).

C-Approximately 6 3/4"( hard to see center of pulley) to 3" pan depth. It is another 5 3/4"+ from the 3" pan part to the bottom of the deep part of the sump, so a total of 12 1/2"+.

D- sump is deep at back, but only for approximately 5 1/4". This makes for transplant ease!

E- 9" at rear( see D above), 3" for front. ( Note slight inconsistancy with C measurement above - at most 1/4".

F-The widest point is oddly at the front bottom, due to the a/c and alternator being at the bottom. Perhaps they can be relocated. It is approximately 25 1/2".
