reliable if treated right, can be strong if you want to do a simple turbo setup to run the engine to it's capabilities which is around 200 to 230whp, quick in stock form no.

Solid motor. And no it doesn't HAVE to be turbo to keep pace with a B16. High comp could do it too, but obviouslyboost is easier. Just sayin'...

Your best bet is to turbo your motor. Its going to be cheaper and easier and a whole lot more fun.
