Help needed to make decission!!

Hi mates! I love the alfa romeo gtv, and soon soon i purchase one, my only think is the busso 3.0 24v L 220hp. But all cars i buy i ever modify it... i never looked the v6tb 200hp 2 liters, but viewing pages of spanish chippers, it gains with a chiptunning al least to 243hp!!! the busso v6 N/A gains to the number of 247hp.

My question is this... what engine is more happy with the moddifications?? i know that supercharged engines, the gain of hp is more easy than N/A but in stock, the 3.0 **** hard the 2.0 v6 turbo, and... I need to say if the 2.0 v6 turbo gain easy a lot of hp, or the 12 valve engine is not happy with the mods staying stock, and need a lot's of money to giv'em to the 250-260bhp number.

thanks a lot guys! i soon make a decision and i don't like to pay a lot of money in the car and select the wrong one...

well in my experience turbo cars are always cheaper to modify and produce more power than NA engines , so i'd go for the turbo option

My 3.0 NA is running 251bhp with Unsilenced exhaust and CDA intake

If you want big power on a turbo V6 you will also spend big money on new pistons and rods. Why not just get the 3.0 and fit a turbo?

Remember that the Turbo only had the basic front brakes as std (same as 2.0TS), it didn't get the Brembos that the 3.0V6 had.

So allow space in your budget for better brakes if you get the Turbo.

Thanks for the reply! My headache is for the performance, the big busso brakes better, pull hard in any rpm range, but the turbo passed the 3k rpm kick ***. With the performance chance, the big busso brakes hard, the thin busso not that good.
But in the performance chance?? what is the best option to reach the 270horsepower level?? i see that autodelta shop had a lot of mod's for the big busso, soo €€€€€, but it still here, real power gains.

How you think about it?? what is the best powertrain to reach that level? i think that 3.0 v6 is more strong than thin turbo, but the thin turbo, have turbo, and overboost.

Jesus, headache
