1991 Daytona ES V6 3.0L Horsepower? Turbos?

I have a 1991 dodge daytona ES 5-speed with the V6 3.0L and DOHC
I was curious on the horsepower she's packin. My friend has a new 5-speed for escort 4cl 2.0L and i just wanted to know how it would turn out. I cant race him right now but i have a major exhaust leak which is robbing my rpms lol! I also heard that i could easily install the shelby turbos on my 3.0L engine but i havent heard of anyone doing it yet so i was curious if any body knew. I think that it would be one fast ride if I could. I also am having a problem that i already saw posted on the forum but i figured if any body knew they could inform me. Im having the rpms jump and flutter when i first start my engine but only if its been sitting for a while and it only does it usually the first time i start it. So if anybody has any info for me please let me know!!!

In 1991 the base Daytona Engine was a 2.5L SOHC I4 N/A with 100 HP, optional engines were a 2.5L SOHC I4 Turbo I with 152 HP, and the 3.0L SOHC V6 N/A with 141 HP. DOHC 3.0's were not available in a Daytona so if you got 4 cams on that engine then somebody did a head swap before you got the car.
The only DOHC 3.0 V6's I know of were installed in the Dodge Stealth and the Mitsubishi 3000 GT and later on the Eclipse they were rated at 200 HP in N/A configuration or 300 HP with Twin Turbo's
