    Depends on your goal with the car, and the amount of $$$$$ you have.

    NA=A car that looks good but is slower than your grandma with a walker

    FI=A car that looks good but is faster than a teenage boy who just heard the word "yes" from his girlfriend.

    13.3s aren't cheap. unless you just ripped out your interior and did the normal i/h/e...which still isn't that cheap.

    Have to go with Boost, sounds great, good power gains, and gets you a lot more torque than NA, in a four banger anyway.

    FI = not reliable? Anyone that thinks that doesn't have a fucking clue about tuning. Period. You like NA better because it's more of a challenge to get power? Please. That's a copout answer to hide your ignorance. That's like saying that you want to convert your Civcic to RWD "just to be different."

    Turbo- usable power and tons of it. Turbos make torque. Torque makes fun.

    NA- Hey, while you're waiting for your NA monster to come up on the cam and start to make a few ponies, I'm gonna go get some lunch.

    It's all about the area under the curve and NOTHING makes more area under the curve than a turbo. Prove me wrong and I'll give you my car.
