b16a2 questions

i was thinking of picking up a 96~97 delsol vtec trim, which has the b16a2.

First question: what gas do you use for stock engine?

I'm going to use it for autox, and i'm looking for i guess ~220hp and 160~170lbft... so here it goes:

centrifugal SC or a turbo? I really don't want too much lag or too routine of a maintenance, but if anyone is running FI on a b16a2, please share ur experiences.

You should use at least 92 octane in the stock engine
As for the SC or turbo, I'd opt for a SC if the car is for auto-x. Otherwise a small turbo, either way, power may be a little lower than you want, but response is more important in auto-x anyway.
