Isn't the answer obvious??

They are the most expensive engines on the market and they had to have the best.

I wonder why they don't build their own super engines if "off the shelf" doesn't work??????????????

I think it is because the imersion kit and the exourst on the yammies did not need that much modification on them which MAKES THEM CHEEPER to put together. (sorry about spelling )
