Heh, yeah, we don't know anything about diesel powertrains here at work. I started my career here doing powertrain calibration on the 7.3 powerstroke.
There are two types of engineers out there.
Type one, which is FAR to common is the guy that goes there and does their job and leaves.
Type two are the car guys. Those who go out and learn everything they can, know people on every platforn, every OEM, catalog every little slip, every little corner of paper sticking out on a desk....
I think most of the guys on my current program voluntarily took the tightest timed program because we wanted to work on the Camaro.
Besides, there's a different IP generally for every single engine/trans combo. So we have pretty far advance notice of all the engines going in.
Trust me, you can see the car guys real quick, they are the guys who notice the cadillac cluster has a boost gage....
