Its not like 20 years ago. So many IRS available for the C4 Corvette to the Cadillac CTS and 300hp V6s make projects like this far more affordable and realistic than ever.

That engine is far less reliable than a SC 3800, and the 3800 can easily produce 300+. With less cost and less loss of the Reatta's functions.

I'm not quite sure that the engine cradles would have been similar.  The Northstar was a V8 vs. Reatta having a V6.  1993 was the last year of Allante production and the only year with the Northstar V8.  Prior years the Allante was equipped with the 4.5L V8.  Just saying...
