Primarily a development project that never got beyond mule stage.  Initial developmet was via a 4-cylinder mule engine, the plan was to then produce a 5-cylinder version based on the GV5 block and continue development.  Once proven, a complete engine would have been assembled around the GV5 block barring new directions.

Proposed 2011 regulation changes (vastly reduced capacity diesels) make this project unlikely to ever hit the track.
