My experience with X30’s is that they are very close out of the box. We’ve never “owned” an X30, yet always competitive with our lease engines, and we’ve leased them from multiple different engine builders….
Seems like they are trying to solve for a problem that doesn’t exist… especially when it’s legal to blue print the engine.
Will be interesting to see if ANYONE claims an engine over the course of 2016… maybe it’s just to shut up the people who are always complaining. “hey, if you think their engine is better, go claim it… otherwise, shut up… ”
