Well as I understand it, yes. It was designed and prototypes were produced by Porsche to take HD out of the 19th and into the 21 century but I guess it never fullly took.

What I can't understand is; it's a far better powerplant then the evo motor but the HD guys sort of shun it, go figure.

Anyway I made my decision for the better and it left me with allot more money for accessories.
