    Well, keep us posted. How about if you give us a real world review on your experience at 30 days, 6mos and so on.... With the quality, pricing and blue sky warranty that seems to be an issue with some of the oem kits these days it would be nice to know if there is any real option. When it comes to the yellow engines I will say that I do believe that the metallurgy research is probably superior to aftermarket but it takes more than that to turn out a lasting part. I remember when Cat's spec on tolerances for warranty or replacement were both in a very narrow window. Now, not so much. Ridiculous window on reman mechanical injectors (probably on electronic too?) is a good example.

    I consume no oil, and have basically no blow by. And I am significantly higher than stock HP. I pull up to 45lbs of boost. Broke in the motor with an 80k load, ran it hard, did not idle for the first 15k miles. Rings set pretty much immediately.
