When it comes to performance vehicles, you can break them up into 3 categories-Tuners, Muscle, and Exotics. Tuner cars tend to have different upgrade options in performance mods and visual mods(Usually run some form of a 4 cylinder motor).Muscle cars tend to go by the idea that bigger is better and go with high liter N/A V8 motors(5.0,5.6,5.7,6.0,6.6 Liters) or supercharged V8 motors with huge blowers above the hood. Exotics usually have high revving high HP motors that are less liters than muscle cars(like a 3.9L Ferrari V8). Exotics usually are 8 cylinder, 10 cylinder, or 12 cylinder. That's my view on the subject. Take any of that information with a grain of salt.

Well besides my 3.3L boxer 6 SVX which I have been (slowly) working to turbo I have a 03 Infiniti M45, a decently rare bodystyle I like, I want to turbo this someday as well. But this is also automatic only and the stock transmission is just old enough or just new enough, depending on how you look at it, that it isn't a great trans for that purpose. lol
