God thatís painful to watch. Iím not sure whatís more sickening, pink slippers with his dorky way of saying everything while his boyfriend repeats everything, or the old man wearing his pants up to his chest.

Good video. But it's comparing the l5p to the lmm.

Thanks Gale for confirming what I've been preaching for years on piston oiling and cooling..

Think I found where those others 2 sets of Mahle Monotherms went too...

I've been wondering if the Cummins 5.9 monotherms could work in the Duramax. Looks like a little honing and it will fit. I think he just confirmed it

I donít think Banks even messed with the LML platform did they? I donít think his ECM can control the piezo injectors.

JJ texted me last week about getting together to go over a new design. Mahle has bailed on production, as expected. Was obviously just blowing smoke at PRI 2016. So screw em, time to move on.

Now if I could get GB to commit to a few minutes on the phone, we might have something worth testing later this year.
