Back in the late 1980s Porsche ran an ad for the 944 Turbo showing every part differentiating it from the standard 944....let's just say the point was a complete job entails a bit more than slapping on a turbo.

Carrol Shelby understood what Porsche was trying to convey to the rest of us: Upgrading the engine means upgrading everything else. That last part is what kills the budget for these otherwise 'great' ideas.

I don't think the idea of a swap is what upsets most people, its the fact 99% of these projects never get finished. In the end, another car that could have been saved ends up disentegrating in someones back yard.
