Yeah, I guess you're right. Man you sure do know your IDI stuff quite well.

And I think the large precup of the early 6.9s were too noisy and smoky so they reduced the throat size to reduce smoke...

So Mahle are just pissing off false info.. Nice.

The earlier cups were in 1983 and 84 6.9s, the ones with block cracking issues around the block heater. The early cups had thin side walls and a...

You seriously trusted a helicoil to stand up to the pressures and torque that goes on in a diesel? no wonder why it started to pull out.. You said this before right?

I know, I know.. All I was asking is why was IDI created in the first place.
