How far do i dare go?

Okay, so, everyone here knows i was looking for another run around, full size, people pusher.......i bought a van!

well, to be exact, a 1993 Ford Aerostar(cue laughter).......I know, it's a van, and i am 20, but hey, i can fit 7 ppl AND my full size DJ rig into it AT THE SAME TIME!

bonus items:

4.0L V6 Sport(GFX package)
Heavy Duty trailer hitch(to pull cobalts out of snowbanks)
rear wheel drive(now i have a vehicle i can put my ricer wing on, and get pics ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE)
dual zone climate control

this thing is loaded, and as the name of this thread goes, how far do i dare take my van???

I am tempted to turbocharge the 4.0L engine, which has no get up and go(except when you hit the low gear to go faster)

i have seen some weird people go as far as putting their 4.0L on the blue baby bottle(NOS, youtube it, "12 second aerostar")

just how far should i go with this thing, i want to slam it to the ground, hoping that would be cool(it would also have the tucked wheel look, easy drop, just chop the springs, if i dont like it, i have other aerostars for parts)

This van cost me next to nothing to buy, and i have 5 more for alternate parts if need be, so nothing is out of the question.....
