Lets see some of the Honda'* and wat not try that. That proves to me that the L67 is bulletproof * with proper maintainance *
Murdock'* example is a big testament to the durability of these motors. Very few could go through what his did. And all of that took over a year before it hit the road again.
Remember.. I"m not only the president in believing this engine are solid.. but I'm also a client
good ol memory lane commercials..
BAck on Topic.
Just cause the newer engines can produce more power per litre then ours doesn't mean it'* better.. it just means they will not last longer. We all know everything has a compromise. Performance or durability?? I think our L67'* are smack right in the middle of the compromise scale. WE have good performance with excellent durability..
I dare anyone * but will not be held accountable for * to take any other state of the art vroom vroom.. Nissan, Toyota, or any other kinda engine and go thru wat I did.. and tell me it'* still running.. or at least still running without major overhaul to the engine.
P.*. thanx for the support Don and Billl <---Mustafa
