When I purchased the car yrs ago the chassis was done to take
Eight hundred horses but he changed direction  and decided to do it as a daily driver an as he did such a good job fitting the engine and driveline I decided to leave it although I have a stroker 408 engine ready it stands out as different with the 24v.
So maybe the single turbo option may just give it a touch more acceleration.

Do you really drive it every day??

If you have a 408, I would get rid of the carb and use fuel injection. I did that with my 427 capri . Idles like a stocker and is much more drivable on the street. In combination of a overdrive tranny like a 4r70w or a good manual like a t56 and a good rear end ratio, its very good on the streets.
