Only if its the short nose. Short nose has less weight therefore revs better.

1.6 turbos are for people who didn't know better when they started their build or are too stubborn/lazy to acknowledge/rectify their error. Sorry

No, stupidity is arrogant ******** like yourself. If the 1.6 engine is such an "inferior" engine you should probably take 1.6 parts off tse's website. Wouldn't want to mix up inferior parts with parts of a god like yourself.

Just out of curiosity, how much power do you make? Don't cloud the answer with some bullshit. Just answer the question.

I know I'll get flamed by all the people that swing from your nuts and that's fine.

I'm glad I didn't spend any money with you. And I know personally there are many people that won't spend a dime at tse because of your arrogance and your stupid remarks like that.

It is unfortunate that I called and asked your advice once on my rear diff.

I usually consider what you say to be on point, but this a pretty dumb statement.

Agreed. It's a shame, too. This is not how a business owner should act when his responses will sway people to either buy or not buy from him. You would think he would be more thoughtful about how he represented himself.

Honestly, there are a ton of people who won't shop with TSE because of his attitude whether or not they've bought from him before.

I'm not stubborn at all. I don't defend the 1.6 ever. I understand a 1.6 is far inferior in almost every way to a 1.8.

But that still doesn't change the fact that some people want to make power with it. And it has nothing to do with being stubborn, ignorant, or any other adjective Sav wants to use to describe it.

1.8 vs 1.6 is like having a .2" bigger dick.

no, it's like having a 2" bigger dick and being able to bang supermodels instead of your mom and leaving her completely unsatisfied.

0.2 in length or volume?? that makes a difference (well depending on girth i guess...)

Andrew can do whatever he wants. Just like people who run a 1.6 can choose to turbo it.

So basically you are banging your mom right now since you drive a turbo 1.6
