I agree, and the Banks website treatment of this engine as a "project" rather than a "product" makes me think that Banks agrees.

The engine seems to have attracted attention among truck enthusiasts primarily as a preview of the engine's possible availability in Dodge pickups. For the FiberglassRV owner, the practical way to get one is to buy a 2014 Grand Cherokee. Of course, one could shovel similarly huge piles of cash at Volkswagen for a similarly powered Touareg instead.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
