I was thinkin I could use high comp pistons and sum cams not sur yet. I do know I want the most tq monster I can have. I wanta be able to idle up mountains(U know what I mean) Any ideas will help with decisions. Im goin to be doin it rite away either. Goin to take my time. I dont mind runin permium gas at all. Im used to it frm my 07 sti I used to have. I was thinkin bout goin with 4.11 gears also but its goin to be a dd also so Id like to stick wit the 3.9's. But wit a trq monster engine it will make up for it. Thanks subi gang

Torque breaks things. If you want it, though, one very cost-effective option is to look for my Frankenmotor thread on this forum. My Brat's frame creaks and groans now because of the torque, and the brakes, suspension and transmission all need to be upgraded to make it less dangerous.
Fitting the DOHC heads in a Brat is harder than fitting older SOHC heads. Also, if you're serious about torque, you'd be foolish to not get some torque cams from Delta Cams. The drawback of having 4 cams is that you have to pay them twice as much.

Won't fit without notching the frame rails.

More than twice as much - rebuild on the DOHC heads is over twice as much (~$500 for the set), and the cams are WAY over twice as much. Like over $500 for the 4 cams vs. ~$175 for the SOHC's.

It will also depend on your budget and level of mechanical experience.

I was thinkin bout just buildin my ea81t but not sur. I was goin to build the block get cams and a td04 wrx turbo and str exhaust no cats wit a muffler and a nice tmic. But that's mor for street. I want tq to turn some 27" superswampers. No I know the turbo motor will but at higher rpms.
But I'm not totally sure. Cuz I do hav a 05 dodge PowerWagon for hill climbin. So maybe a built turbo motor will be fine
