Both pics of the engine in that link are kinda fishy.
The first pic shows a MASSIVE EGR cooler on the side of the motor - like they took the CRD cooler and just tripled the size. Oh goody...
But the rest of that engine is all fake. It is a show shell, no open ports for the intake / AC / other stuff visible. Just looks fake to me.
The second shot of the engine, where is the power steering pump? There isn't one in the serpentine pathway, and the tensioner on the top looks like a nightmare to change the belt on.
I really wish these "engineers" that are designing the engines would know what a wrench looks like and how to use one. Designing the whole thing on a computer without any concept of how to FIX it really makes things suck a lot for the grease monkeys. Think about this failure in design: To change the turbocharger on the VW Touareg V10 TDI (and their turbo is somewhat fragile like the CRD's - operated too close to the limits)... You have to pull the entire ENGINE FROM THE CAR.
To change the turbo.
I wonder what pain like that will be found in this new engine? I really really hope there isn't anything like that - I want this to succeed, so someone else offers a small truck with a diesel. VW, I'm looking at you and the Amarok.
