yuh stick tho...I sold a BT head with cams for $100 (yes, a hundred dollars) a couple weeks ago cuz I wanted it out mih yard...say wha...
Anything you can think of doing with a 20V has been done before BTW, so do your research online, get out your verniers to measure sheit, cross-reference sizes with compatible parts from other engines and get part numbers. Lots of stuff available from TTTL if you know part numbers. They'll surprise you on the prices of a couple things too.
Full rebuild on my silvertop 20V and the only thing I went overseas for was to Nassco in B'dos to save $1000 on an oil pump...used that savings to buy compression rings from TTTL. You're not the first person on planet Earth to attempt this, so don't let ppl discourage you.

ideal for anyone who damaged their's changing the crank seal (it happens)
$330 firm (cost price) I ordered 2 so as to get it as fast as possible.

If it is safe to assume that you are speaking about the 4A-GE 20 valve engine then I can safely assume that you have never purchased a single new engine part for your car and you are always lucky to find foreign used (bamboo) replacement parts when anything breaks.
By my estimation it is at least 10 times cheaper to turbocharge a 20 valve blacktop engine than to go the distance with N/A aftermarket performance parts/tuning.

Man do a ton of modifications and then use OEM blacktop cams after all that. smh. If you plan on boosting a blacktop and making sense while you're at it then you HAVE to change the camshafts, the injectors, the map sensor, and you must get a good aftermarket tuneable ECU(6D mapping capability preferred.) This is an over simplified version of what is required but i'm leaving it like that just so you can easily identify the things that go hand in hand with significant results in terms of power output. Reliability upgrades will include things like the fuel pump, pistons, rods, bearings, oil pump, water pump, radiator with additional coolant capacity etc. but these are not the necessities for making power. I would recommend a 7AFE project if you've squeezed out consistent 11 second passes from the 20V block or you can't go further with it on the dyno and you don't want to switch to a higher platform like the 3SGTE.
