    they can both be as efficient and reliable.

    for boost, its all about control, right B?

    and all motor until about 13:1 c/r is very streetable.

    i wouldn't call 13:1 very streetable...do you really think you're gonna be able to run it on pump gas every day with that much compression? yeah right. :laugh:

    with a f/i application you need to make sure you're building the motor to handle the boost. a turbo motor can be reliable if you don't completely abuse it and you take care of it with more than regular maintenance.

    all in how much you build it. If you overbuild your motor, which is what you should do for a daily driver, both setups can be very reliable. By overbuilding I mean, if you plan to run 250hp, buy parts that are rated for 400 etc.

    its not about building=- its about tuning, and controlling yourself.

    if its 110* out, don't go boosting :bash:

    thats because all-motor doesnt make any hp :)

    but seriously- if tuning was not needed, the thing that would cause a motor to blow would be the stress on the internal parts of the motor, aka the power
