Is Anyone Worried about the Cost of Parts?

Just curious if anyone out there has any concerned about the cost of replacement parts for the 3.0 Motori vs the Cummins? From what I've seen you can find parts for the Cummins going for a song, probably due to their proliferation throughout the HD lineup for years.

Now as for the Motori 3.0 its a relatively new engine to north america and its only other use is in the Jeep GC where it does not enjoy a particularly favorable uptake rate.

Just curious what you guys are thinking...

i wonder how much of the engine is actually made from italian parts.
The factory is in Italy, As of now it is a small applicaton. I remember reading somewhere, and forgive me I cant remember the source, but they are looking to expand capacity at the plant as it seems that since Motori has become a fully owned FIAT subsidary they will be the prime source for diesel mills for all of FCA.

I do wonder what sort of supply constraints there will be seeing as Motori is supplying engines for the ghibli, GC and RAM 1500...
