The V6 is NOT reported to be reliable.  The turbo 5 is reported to be
pretty much bulletproof.  91 200Q is already > 200hp.  There are no
significant gains obtainable with the V6.  I'd go for the 200 myself,
wouldn't even consider the V6.

BTW, I have an 86 5kCSTQ and a 95 90Q(has V6).  The 86 is more fun to drive.
