Knew a guy with a Beretta GTZ that had a Quad 4 that was turbo'd and nitro'd. It was mean.

I had no idea those engines could be built like that. I knew they were stout but geeze. The ecotecs definitely have stolen the spotlight...

Quad 4 H.O. > Ecotech

Anytime, anywhere.

The main thing my buddy had trouble with was snapping axels on his Beretta. The engine/tranny could handle the power just fine.
