Yes, difficult to keep awake isnt it?
Does this mean, Ollie, that you are now driving a thirsty, non-performant, out-of-date engine with little chance of redemption?

Possibly or maybe a fast, smooth and silent engine that is no longer the fastest on the block..

Cheque book? Mine or yours?
No, come to think of it, dont answer that one. I think I already know the answer.

Try watching it on slow dialup! Not!

I'm getting around 1 word every 20 seconds - enlightenment will have to wait until I get home.

What a novel idea - sell a range of engines with sloppy tolerances - then tighten up your techniques and claim it as an amazing new concept.

Seems to be a common thing with Yank engines. When my mate used to run hotrods and funny cars we would always free up extra power from the engine by adding oil scrapers - rounding off cranks etc. The sloppier the engine the more power you can gain. Don't get me wrong I LOVE Yank engines but they aren't exactly overstressed until you play around with them.

With most highly tuned European engines there are usually much smaller gains to be made although there is always room for some improvement.

The words might come a bit quicker, but it will still be just as dull. If that's him being excited, I wonder what he's like the rest of the time!

Google let you down this time..

The chief designer for the Verado series is a fellow by the name of Claus Bruestle. Herr Bruestle formerly worked for Porsche, where he was head of the design team for the Porsche - Cayenne V-8 engine.

And I am sure any number of your mates that drive Porshe's will tell you they are not known for being sloppy. And before you start ranting that the Cayenne is not a real Porshe or whatever your going to say the one great thing about that somewhat flawed car is its engine, its a real peach.

Why should I have used Google? The sloppiness was probably down to wider production tolerances - I never mentioned bad design!!!

A mate of mine in the transport business has a Cayenne V8 and I agree the engine is lovely - no match for the boxer 6 cylinder though!!!
