I think you summed it up. It is a complete waste of time and money to put it simply. But it actually is a turbo charged carburated 2 liter.

The new pump doesn't have the GPH required for the thirsty little motor. I installed a quest pump and a fpr, and it will haul butt under boost with that, but won't idle. I think I need an FMU.. I hate saying that...
incase you don't know, a FMU is a rising rate fpr of sorts, it starts at 1:1 at low boost pressure, and goes up to 12:1 under higher boost pressure. It's normally a band-aid©®™ on a naturally aspirated to boosted application, that I do not enjoy dealing with from a tuning standpoint. I have not seen a predictable or reliable one yet.
So it has the diesel pump in it now and I can stay in boost for a few seconds before it literally runs out of fuel, I mean 11.5:1 afr to 22:1. Like the motor turned off, then it gets the fuel again, and I can do it again. It's not bad to show off for a second, but it won't "go fast", like I can't do a full pull, so it's fun to drive, but limited... I kind of like it, it keeps me out of trouble.

Cool,  but I agree on the 340 though.   I've seen many Arrows go 8's or 9's with a good high reving SB in there.   You tube is loaded with 'em.   And an occasional Colt.

Well it had a 2.0 then the fire arrow had a 2.6. Let's split the difference and go 2.3L.

It'll outperform that any day, without the ridiculous cubes of a v8.

Insane in the wood grain. gone insane, got wood grain.
it's just cabinet laminate.
And, TexasQuest, I do not plan to make a monster. I tried that, and I didn't enjoy it. This will be quite a bit less hp. I'm thinking less than 300 on under 15psi.

it's starting to look like an engine.

i should mention that I bought the cheapest ebay t3 footprint manifold I could find that didn't have a wastegate provision, so i could chop it and flip it. So far so good.
The intake manifold is an evo 8, it needs decently modified to work, but it will.
