Pure speculation from my side.
You would need some 15-17 PSI of boost for these 450HP.
The K20a from the DC5 has a high static compression ratio of 11.5.
Unless you run e85, it won’t work. Tuning has to be really good.

These engines are also fairly valuable.
you might consider getting a K20a2, drop in 10:1 or 10.5:1 CR forged pistons and boost it to 450HP on pump gas.
Sell the k20a and you end up with a way more durable engine that is easier to tune and run as a DD for no extra $.
