She is actually probably logged on right now to your account typing your replies for you.

Really? If I had the time I'd go back through and try and find out where I was whining, but I have class all day today.

I don't whine. I troll, hate, have no shame, and self-humiliate.

I have no issue buying a rolling NB2 shell and swapping my 1.6 in it. It's actually on my list of things once my car starts to fall apart.

that's different; you wouldn't swap an unbuilt 1.6L in it would you?

Ok, I was staying out of this thread, but this is just plain full retard. Sorry.

Or do you mean like only if you were placed into that predicament?

I was wondering when you would post. I'm impressed it took this long. I feel like he is trolling, but maybe not.

Except that he "wasted" money on a built 1.6. So really built 1.6 shouldn't even be in that post.

I was saying I would swap my entire drivetrain over to an NB2 shell. I wouldn't actually do it, being that I prefer NA's. But, I did think it would be funny. I kinda want to do it now.

Totally wasted. Except when I think about my motor, turbo, manifolds (intake/exhaust), exhaust, 6spd and clutch costing less than a built BP short block from a "shop". No way in hell I could justify starting all over and spending 2-3x's the money to pick up power in a range that I don't care about. I wouldn't be able to do it. I'd still be stuck with my lame FM3 kit complaining about studs

-BP is superior track motor- Never questioning that, and from what I hear it does increase package size, if you know what I mean.

No it's like having a 12.5% bigger dick. Depending on your viewpoint, it may not be worth pursuing, because that extra half inch may get expensive.

Is it really worth it?
