I am just lucky? The question is,"Does the number of engines WITHOUT the problem number drastically greater than the number with the problem (greater than 85-90%). Is there ANY empirical data for that? I do not deny that the problem exists and I think it sucks for whoever it happens to. There was recently a poll on 1addicts of people who had or did not have the problem and the results were surprising in how many did NOT have the HPFP problem. So for me (without the problem) then engine is top notch. Like I said before drag, track, autoX, everyday driving it has been like a champ.

I know where it is at "dude"(kinda something I would need to know given my mod list and probable lack of warranty...just sayin')....the reason I said it is that we have to consider if the people giving the award consider it as part of the engine or extraneous to the engine.
