i would like to rebuild my birds 3.8 would like to get a bit more power from it would like to have it relyable but also am thinking about a small wet nitros shot also. maybe a total with nitros around 200-250 hp. This would blow the kids mind here in town.By the way my 93 bird is the sun rise red ( my daughter says its pink )

Ronnie,

I would think that you would get better bang for the buck by putting in a small block V-8. T-Birds had those as well. You can go with an injected 5.0 since the '93 should have all the computer cabling - yeah, you'll have to change out the computer for the one that matches the V-8, but you'll have a lot more reliability and more potential.
