Engine reliability:

Overall, this engine can last around 280,000 to 480,000 km if properly maintained, using the correct quality oil and fuel, and carrying out regular checks and maintenance.
The engine has hydraulic valve tappets (lifters), which provide quieter operation and do not require periodic adjustment, but are more complex in design and can cause serious engine damage in the event of failure.

Number of cylinders 8
Bore (cylinder diameter) 86 mm
