So just a few questions google couldn't answer for me.
1. What is the fastest (hp or top speed) fwd 4 cylinder car in production?
2. What is the fastest (hp or top speed) fwd normally aspirated car in production?
3. What is the most horsepower ever produced from any 4 cylinder engine?

Funny I found this post somewhere on google not sure if its a fact but
1) Mitsubishi Lancer Evo (290 hp)
2) Subaru Impreza WRX STi (305 hp)
Both get from 0-60 in around 5 seconds or less.
3) Chevy Cobalt SS (0-60 in 5.5 secs.-FWD)
4) MazdaSpeed 3 (0-60 in 5.5 secs.-FWD)
5) 2009 Impreza WRX (0-60 in 5.2 secs.-AWD)
6) Mazda RX-8 (RWD)
7) Dodge Neon SRT-4 (MOPAR Stage 2 or 3 kit makes it really fast-FWD)
A Stage 3 kit can give it enough power to get it from 0-60 in less than 5 seconds.
8) Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-X (AWD)
9) Honda Prelude (FWD)
10) Toyota MR-2 Spyder (RWD)
11) Mazda MX-5 Miata (RWD)
Highlighted in green are irrelivent because there RWD

Fastest N/A 4 Banger is the Lotus Elise but has less horses then the S2000

Most HP out of a 4 banger that I have seen so far is Jon Huber's 2.3 mustang that pushes upwards of 1000 HP (no joke) heres the video of a track time.

N/a??? it is possible regardless what anyone may say. Squeezing big time hp is possible. It just takes lots of $$$$
