They're fine once running, it's just noticeable (to me) when you turn them off.

I never said they were new, just saying that they were not a fist gen 12 valve. They just shake a whole lot more than I would expect.

I just hope the v8 cummins do not sound like tractors like the I6 does.

Yea, it would suck if they sounded powerful instead of like a wet fart like the other v8 diesels out there.

While I still think the V8 diesels sound damn good, I also think the I6 Cummins sound awesome.

Someone is taking this way too personal.

Wet fart? Not quite, pissed off Dyson vacuum cleaner? Yep!
