And you know those guys would save money if they could use something cheaper.
I suspect it may have been for longevity purposes with the new emission standards coming out in that time period. Emissions were tightening up and with that, EGT's must have gone up quite a bit. They also produced ceramic coated exhaust ports to help save the heads.
