I guess that's why I asked the question. Seeing this engine run made me think of my granddads old Isuzu Pup with the diesel engine. When that thing started up it sounded like someone shoveling gravel into a mortar mixer and the entire truck shook like a wet dog. That's when I was a little kid, thought things would have changed by now. Guess not.
