Hey you will get a certain amount of that negativity but many of us here like to see new projects involving porsches. A VW engine should not make anybody upset I would think, it ain't a 'general motor' after all. I think that there are enough of us here that reject the wine and cheese crowd attitudes and just are enthusiastic about porsches and cars in general.

What was the point of using the VW engine, better fuel economy?
