John, I had no time to read the article but I am not surprised, at least the product is better these days. My 88 was 20 grand, out the door with a whopping 160hp and 400 foot pounds of torque. That POS was on the hook over 20 times in the first two years. My 16 was 55 grand and was the low performer with only 395HP and 795 torque and has never seen the hook. I will gladly pay the bucks for quality, performance and reliability.
