    Why?

    An old friend of mine is a MF dealer and recently took on LS. He seems to be pushing LS pretty hard.

    And pray tell me how a Marine genset engine has anything to do with this thread titled with "5 cyl engine" other than another one of your futile attempts to change the "SUBJECT"????? Are you trying to state that JD utilized a "5 cyl engine" in a marine application??

    Saying a turbo 3 cylinder will make 5 cylinder natural aspirated power.
    Maybe JD wanted the 5 cylinder to make a longer chassis than the shorty 3 ?

    All JD had to do was use a 4 cyl(already in production) lengthen frame rails to attain a longer wheel base without introducing a 5 cyl engine. Did you find the model # of your ""phantom JD 3 cyl engine with the intercooler"" you mentioned earlier???????

    No tier I or II engines left on the site. No intercooled 179's in the Tier III or IV. Still makes 66HP at 1800rpm which isn't shabby with .37HP per cu" at 1800rpm without an intercooler.

    Thank you for clarifying your statement. I'm fairly decent at looking up JD items and I knew I couldn't find the 3 cyl intercooled engine listed on JD's website that you referred to.
