If engineers tested engines after 30 years of experiments, and redesign work, the TIV engine would just now have been released..

The thing that engineers cannot duplicate is that the biggest enemy that the engine will have is a misinformed mechanic...I doubt very seriously that they will have someone lug the engine over a mountain, run crappy gas in it, run 59 cent/quart oil in it or all of the above REAL TIME effects of an engines life..

I like to make things bulletproof, enough that the engine can be neglected, "Ran hard and put up wet" and never make someone walk..

To all the engineers out there:

I did not atteeempt to make a direct hit on you, or your profession. My engineering degree came from laying on my back on cold concrete floors when I screwed up.....Over 25% of my customers are engineers, they design things, we make them work! Once again, no flames intended, but I'm not afraid of the heat...LOL
