It is an unclear statement, Bill.
One that was in your D2?
Or all of D2s? 2003 was the shittiest year ever, and 2004 not far behind.
P38As had 4.6s working just fine, in both GEMS and Bosch flavors. Of course not all of them, but those that's been cared for.
ALL of the Motronics engines had the same risk of oil pump failure.
Not even the P38s were immune, in fact, I’m not sure the only reason we saw fewer failures of the P38 engines was due to a slightly less fragile cooling system.
I have encountered busted oil pumps in ‘99s, but have yet to encounter one on a GEMS truck.
If cares for at all, an RV8 is every bit as robust as an LSx or SBC. They are all related and had the same design engineers involved as they all came from the 265
