It was used for a short time and at some point parts may be an issue. I have the 6.0 in my 45 and I'm very happy. I run loaded with no problems all the time. I'd go local and with a more reliable engine and have no surprises!!!
I've had mine for four years, no issue. No several guys around here with it that haven't had issues either. What evidence do you have to support your claim?
