What advantage is there in going with the 3.1 Turbo over a 3.4 DOHC if you're already planning to modify the turbo? The swap would be of similar difficulty.
The downsides I see with the DOHC 3.4 is maintanence on it and lack of aftermarket parts. They look like a pretty tight squeeze and have a higher center of gravity. I've driven stock ones and they have decent power but they are really lacking in torque compared to their pushrod counterparts. The way I see it is the biggest advantage that the turbo 3.1 has over the DOHC is the wide choice of different cams or even custom grinds. Last I checked you cant put larger cams in the dohc because of head design and nobody makes the blanks for them.
