"but he says it would sort of be like a dentist doing a root canal without direct access to the patient's mouth".

A bit like 2005-2008 M96/7 engines whereby getting to the $25 IMS bearing, splitting the engine cases is major surgery & cost you $10,000.......
2001 Boxster S (triple black). Sleeping easier with LN Engineering/Flat 6 IMS upgrade, low temp thermostat & underspeed pulley.
2001 MV Agusta F4.

Did Hitachi lease their technology from someone in Germany?

Maybe they should try a Direct Oil Feed type of solution to prevent it in the future?
