I discussed the VW motor because Americans primary experience are with medium duty diesels stuffed into light duty vehicles. They think every diesel will run 600k miles and has high maintenence costs. Thats not true. I could have said the 2.8 VM Motori, or the 3.0 bluetec or whatever.
Why don't I listen to him? I do, if he makes sense, its Lothos I don't listen to :tonka: But when we are the company acutally designing the engine controls for half of the new diesels coming out, I don't need to talk to a calibration engineer at an OEM for info.
