      There are also cases of this engine being "money shifted" and no damage resulted.

      Really? An engine spec'd not to rev past 6800 RPM that piston slaps valves at 9k RPM due to driver error is a design flaw?

      Yea, they miffed it by blaming engine failure on modifications instead of operator error. They don't have to warranty the blown engine because you selected the wrong gear though. By getting a...

      Just out of curiosity, why the lawyer? Seems like you'll just end up with that cost on top of whatever it takes to fix your vehicle.
