Default Best 4 cylinder engine for drag racing. Boosted!!!

Thought this would make for an interesting debate. I'm looking for opinions on what the best 4-cylinder motor of all time is. Keep in mind availability, versatility, hp/l, power potential, torque curve, sturdiness, history, etc.

I hate to say it. But the K series. A bone stock N/A K makes more power than 4g63, 3sgte did with boost.... But and this is a big BUT in the late 80s and early 90s bmw introduced the M3 to the world. In 1988 the 2.3 e30 m3 motor made 195hp N/A! Believe it or not that same block was what powered their F1 cars. So in the late 80s the e30 block pushed out 1300hp! As much as i hate bmw. I would have to say that was the best 4 cylinder ever built by any manufacturer PERIOD..... But they aint exactly easy to find or get parts for.

Why do you favor the 1.8 3TC?

I would have to say the 4G63 for an easy way in. The 3TC is a monster if you have a bit more funds. It all depends on your budget and how fast you want to go.
