Part of my pleasure in a hot rod VW engine is tinkering with it, knowing it's built right because I did it and having an intimate knowledge of every part in it. It keeps its original character of the car intact and I like that. I wouldn't care if the Subaru engine was free and it lasted 200,000 miles. There's no fun in that.
I'm with Zack, for me there is no question....all my vws will stay VW powered....that's what makes the car what it is. I can understand if someone who isn't into wrenching on a high strung stroker....it takes lots of time and some half ass knowledge/desire to learn. Stuff a stuberoooooo stove in something, get it dialed and drive it without as much worry/stress/$$$ maintenance. I get the draw to the conversion....lazy fuckers
haha just kidding (sort of
) Steve just please don't ever try and say one of those japcrap things sound better than a properly built and tuned 2L
might get a hit out on ya
