From what my engineer was telling me - you can get a lot more done under the new codes - however...

Whereas under the old codes - you just had say 1 code for "Trans/Gearbox" - you now need several codes for Gearbox, Tailshaft, Shifter, etc. 1 Code for the engine now becomes seperate codes for Engine, exhaust, intake, etc. Fuel system now has several codes for Fuel Tank, Surge Tank, Fuel Lines, etc.

So what used to be 4 codes (eg for mine - Engine, Box, Fuel System, Brakes) would end up with about 16-20 codes. As more paperwork and "proof" needed, what cost me $500 for 4 codes, would now cost about $2k-$3k for all the codes and paperwork.
