So what happens to engines fielded under the now stricken rule?
Ah I see, make whatever motor you want, EPA compliant or not, just pay the government their fine, and you are good as gold. The mafia ain’t got nuttin on the government. Smh
Navistar isn’t the only company that went with the all EGR solution. Caterpillar no longer makes over the road engines to avoid the issue. The Military got stuck with a lot of the Cat engines with the Montezuma “regen” systems. Speaking of which, I’d really be pissed if I’d bought a new Cat truck and then found out the engine was a Navistar painted Cat yellow and the cab came off the Navistar assembly line. LOL, that’s got to hurt. Navistar has touted a b50 engine life better than any other manufacturer and then reports the astronomical warranty losses every quarter for the engines. They should throw in some swamp land with these deals.
