Seems like to me a mechanical 4bt would be a better choice.

Same weight, way more aftermarket, and more potential for insane power for less money

They say it's easier to install than a 4bt, it's 250lbs lighter, and its only missing a power steering pump. Comes with pedal, computer, and it's a three wire install. It is pricey.

That's right 4bt=454 weight Wise, 750lbs, 6bt is 1k

Prolly be a great motor but it is a tad pricey. What's transmission options look like?

Give it time. I imagine the 2.8 will see its share of aftermarket support and be an animal...
