High RPM aside, they really don't see the stress/strain from the tires hooking up with the road, unlike a boat that has a prop pushing against water. The control of boat engines is much simpler than in cars, too. More sensors? People can't diagnose their problems with the number that are in these now? How do you expect them to fix a problem if they have more sensors?
Ever heard of SIB-KISS? This isn't a Space Shuttle and it doesn't need to be more complicated but whoever is working on one of these needs to know what the he!! they're doing. I don't understand why more people don't buy a manual. It doesn't need to be more sophisticated than a mid-late '90s full-sized Chevy pickup manual- (TBI) or something for Multi-port injection. If they have the LT-1, they could buy a Corvette manual.
