Alloytec Problems.

This'll make the Holden bashers happy, apparently about half the new V6 Alloytec engines coming down the production line won't start when they get to the end. Some sort of problem with the electronics in them. Not sure exactlly what the problem is an how drastic, but not all that good anyways.
Anybody else heard anything bout it?
Cheers....Nath

Re: Alloytec Problems.

Re: Alloytec Problems.

We've already shown the world what we can do down here on our 'little' island in the middle of nowhere.

The Barra182 received a few awards IIRC.

But having said that I too also want to see the alloytech engine succeed, gives more reason of why Ford shouldnt be happy being the underdog trying to chase the wind with lesser equipment.

Re: Alloytec Problems.

Put it down to teething problems.

I'm sure once they sort the problem out they will be fine.

Having competition is good. Good for making competitors get up and do better.

Re: Alloytec Problems.

I very much doubt they would be missing gudgeon pins, that's what holds the piston to the con-rod.

Re: Alloytec Problems.

Yeah that seems like a pretty major thing to forget. You'd have to be a total idiot to not figure that out.

Re: Alloytec Problems.

That's what someone who works for Holden said in another thread, 1000 examples were bad, missing a part he suspected to be a gudgeon pin.
